Media personality, Sola Salako Ajulo, has reacted to the new law in
The Redeemed Christian Church (RCCG), instructing intending couples to
undergo genital examination as part of their pre-marital assessment.
According to her, the church has no business in marriage and their
involvement over the years has messed up many marriages.
Ajulo said this in a post shared on her Facebook page.
She stated that there is nowhere in scripture where the church was the
endorsing or approving authority in marriage! The church’s role is to
teach believers to live according to the commandments of God whether
in marriage or out of it!
She wrote: “Usually, I try not to comment on religious posts because I

be objective but this is kind of extreme.
It is time for the Church to stop usurping the role of the family in
marriage. Marriage as designed by God is a union of two families.
There is nowhere in scripture where the church was the endorsing or
approving authority in marriage! The church’s role is to teach
believers to live according to the commandments of God whether in

Too many marriages are messed up because the Church is meddling
