The headlines read,”Megachurch Marries 32 Couples in Mass Wedding”. That’s unusual, but the most shocking part is that these people were church members who were “cohabiting”. While it’s good that these folks finally decided to “tie the know”, why were they allowed to join the church while “cohabiting”? Here you have a “church” that is in the wrong telling people who are in the wrong that they need to do right. The church had no business receiving these people into the church to start with.
This is where our greatest problem lies today. Don’t blame the Hollywood crowd, etc. for all the ills of our nation. The greater blame lies on the doorstep of churches that compromise what the Bible teaches. A bit later on in the article, I learned a lot more about this “megachurch” when I read this–” the church’s female and male pastors——“. Do I need to say more.
My question is–how can we expect people to obey God’s Word when churches so blatantly disobey the Bible? Instead of giving this church a pat on the back, as this article seems to do, I suggest it deserves a swift kick in the seat of its pants. Think about it!
