Weddings have to be officiated by a Minister
From EJ Hill & Friends

Significance
Digg
I HAVE BEEN TOLD MY MARRIAGE TO ANDREA IS ILLEGITIMATE SINCE IT WASN'T
OFFICIATED BY A MINISTER / PASTOR / PREACHER. submit

My Response
Who officiated the union of Adam and Eve? (Gen. 2-4) Who officiated the union of Isaac and Rebbecca? (Gen.
24v1-67) Was it not God Himself?

In fact, WHERE IN THE WHOLE OF THE NEW TESTAMENT DO WE EVER SEE ANY MINISTER
OFFICIATING AT ANY WEDDING? Nowhere, NOT EVEN ONCE.

Some Food for Thought

Since a Christian Marriage should in effect be 'Christian' (amongst God's people) – CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW
MANY ILLEGITIMATE MARRIAGES ARE OFFICIATED BY MINISTERS? Does that make them Christian?
Does that make them legitimate? Certainly not!

But even worse, HOW MANY MINISTERS TODAY, OFFICIATE REMARRIAGES OF DIVORCEES, WHO'S
ESTRANGED WIVES OR HUSBANDS ARE STILL ALIVE, EVEN THOUGH SCRIPTURE CLEARLY
FORBIDS IT?! (See, Remarriage) Does that constitute a Christian Marriage? Does that make them legitimate?
No!

Scripture References
Gen. 2-4, 24v1-67; Mt. 19v8-9; Mk. 10v11-12; Rom. 7v1-3; 1 Cor. 7v39
