Church goes tough on half-naked brides
« on: April 27, 2008, 08:46:08 PM »
The Cathedral Church of Christ Marina has threatened to stop conducting weddings for couples where the bride and bridesmaids appear half-naked for the ceremony.

The Provost of the Cathedral, the Very Reverend Yinka Omololu who stated this in Lagos, last Wednesday said he had had cause several times to drive many bridesmaid out of the church because they were too scantily dressed for the ceremony.

?The men will appear properly dressed in their suits and ties but the ladies, especially the brides and the bridesmaid, will appear half naked. I drive them out of the church. Some of them will be crying and borrow wrappers to cover themselves before the ceremony can take place.? He said.

Omololu said that the trend was an offshoot of the escalating moral decadence in the society but said, the Cathedral had declared war against it and warned parents to caution their daughters.

Omololu gave the warning during the presentation of a book about the history of the church which is 141 years old and the planned inauguration launching of a N1bn endowment fund which the church said it would use to beef up its mission and welfare activities.

Stressing that the good upbringing of children starts from the family, Omololu advised parents to take advantage of the complementary efforts of the church in combating loose morals.

?We have 10 sessions of pre-marital counselling before we can marry anyone and I have counselled a couple before and at the end of the day they discovered that they were not compatible and called off the marriage.? He said.

He also called on the government to return mission primary schools to their original owners since the church have engineered a successful turn around of the ugly situations in secondary schools after the government returned them.

He cast his mind back to the days when the mission schools were in the hands of the government and said: ?It was after the government took over that the rot set in.

?They replaced religious education with ethics and both are not the same.

?I know of a particular secondary school where the students came to school with knives and there was bloodshed everyday. Six months after we took over, there was a change. There was morning devotion before and after lessons and rascals began to be expelled,? he said.

Most of these indecent dressings are exhibited by the wives & daughters of V.I.Ps in the society.
and i wonder whether the riches have their own heaven.

Ma woman has nothing to tell me!
What we see in the society tell us...........
who and who are those putting this half-cuts.
Moreover immoral dressing doesn't start from........
wedding gowns but from what we put on daily.
Which comprises of both rich and poor!

By Glorifying materialism. And cordoning indecent dressing in the house of God.

There is a church here that allow all manner of ladies into the church as long as they pay tilth. In mosques, that won't be allowed. You either dress well or don't come at all. I believe that church leaders skipped their responsibilities and embrace popular opinions. That is wrong. When popular opinion don't tally with God will, we must stand our ground...

If all churches can speak with one voice against indecence dressing, our society would be better for it.

While I agree that there needs to be more modesty in todays society.  I also must question, do the clothes reflect the substance of someone?  Meaning just because someones form is different than our own does that mean their substance of loving and worshipping God is wrong? Just because it's different than our own?

 The church is a place for all. Just like Jesus said in the bible, He has come to redeem the lost, he came merely for the unsaved. By the time the church starts pursuing and chasing those not properly dressed, which may otherwise signify  sinners or the unsaved, as one may want to classify them, does that not mean that the reason why Jesus came has been defeated?

 Just as Jesus welcomed all, including the woman caught " in the act", so the church should learn to welcome and embrace all. As they keep on hearing the WORD being preached, just as the bible says, "faith comes by hearing and hearing of the word of God", so God will in His own time, turn their hearts over to Himself.

 As a church, we can only advice, preach and encourage, but not to turn back the unsaved.
