Bride price is only to be paid for virgins – Reno Omokri reveals
Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has stirred controversy online with his latest statement on marriage and virgins.
Omokri via his Twitter page revealed that according to the Scriptures Bride price is only paid for virgins.
He wrote in series of tweets: “What I am going to say will shock people. Scripturally, Bride Price is ONLY paid for virgins. Don’t argue with me. Argue with God. See Exodus 22:16-17. By virtue of Scripture (and also in traditional African society), you pay no Bride Price for non virgins.
“Dear Youths, Keep your virginity. Intercourse is great and I assure you that you will surely eat bearded meat-at the right time. Ignore worldly friends who mock you. They are secretly jealous of you. You can be like them, but they can NEVER be like you! “
“I’ve read Scripture from cover to cover, in multiple languages. No scriptural wedding is conducted by a priest or pastor, or in church. Scriptural marriage is a family affair and ONLY involves the groom, bride and parents. Feast is optional. Not mandatory.”
“Scriptural marriage involves only the COUPLE and PARENTS. Marriage is a family affair. Church has NO role in it.That is how Isaac married Rebekah-Genesis 24:67. That is how David married Michal-1 Samuel 18:27. That is how Hosea married his wife-Hosea 1:3.”
