Nigerian Pastor Orders Church Members To Leave Wedding Reception As Couple Serve Beer & Alcoholic Drinks To Guests In Sapele Delta State

A popular Pastor in Delta State caused a mild drama yesterday after he angrily  ordered his church members to leave a wedding reception the moment he spotted assorted alcoholic drinks the couple served at the reception.

According to Sapele Oghenek, the couple who moved against the church beliefs and principles due to their decision to serve alcohol got the unidentified Pastor angry.

Before taking the harsh decision of ordering his church members out of the reception venue, the pastor gave the couple some time to remove the alcoholic drinks but they allegedly refused to yield to his commands.

Witnesses said the Pastor who had earlier conducted the wedding at his church was disappointed by the couple who knew he would not compromise his distaste for alcohol.

Just as the Pastor and the church members were about leaving the reception venue, the couple’s family members ran after them and begged for patience.

They later returned after the couple had removed the alcoholic drinks.

  1. How dare this piece of shit called a pastor tell them what to serve at their wedding reception. He and other didn’t have to drink it. They need to change churches asap. This is not a church but a cult.

  2. During weddings the couple are helpless onlookers in certain respect because it is other people who assist them in making some of the arrangements. Those helpers might flout the instructions of the couple. For instance, older siblings who contribute to the funding of the event but are not members of the couple’s church might be insensitive enough not to stay off beer at the occasion just to humor the celebrants. Family members are usually the culprits.
    However, all is well that ends well. Since the church members eventually returned to participate in this instance, nothing spoil

  3. Jesus turned water into wine for consumption of human beings who were mainly his followers. He didn’t just performed the miracle but Jesus himself knew wine is good for the body. Mind you, wine contains small amount of alcohol. Consuming small amount of alcohol in moderation does not portrays you as a sinner or an evil person but excesses or overconsumption of alcohol is bad for the body and can impair someone’s health.

    Having said that, I think the Pastor was little bit wrong here. This is a wedding and people come from far distance and would like to enjoy themselves. Religion does not totally eradicate consumption of alcohol but in moderation. According to one of parables of Jesus which he said, not what a man eat defiles a man but what comes out of a man. According to the hadith of Muslim, Prophet Muhammad was once alcohol lover but he banned it because it confuses him whenever he wanted to communicate with God which was not good on his part.

    Walking out of wedding reception was not the best judgement by this Pastor. If the wedding has taken place inside the church that reason may be accepted to certain limit but this is a reception which even non believers will also present at the wedding. Tolerance is part of Jesus teaching and his followers must emulate that. Whenever we are in public domain, we need to make judgement that favors everybody irrespective of people religion, race or creed.

  4. The Bible condemns drunkenness, not drinking. There’s no harm in drinking a little alcohol from time to time, so long as you do it with moderation. When you drink to the extent of getting drunk, then you have a problem and must not touch alcohol in public, or drink within the confines of your home, provided you are not driving until the effects wear off. It’s okay to relax with some cold beer in hot weather. Pastor, there’s nowhere in the Bible that says it is a sin to drink alcohol. Lastly, it is not what we eat or drink that makes us unclean but what comes out of our mouths, as whatever utterances we make come from our hearts. That is what makes us unclean and by which we shall be judged. A filthy heart brings forth filthy utterances. Dear Pastor, read the Bible thoroughly and stop playing righteous. As for the members, beware of a dictator disguised in the manner of a Pastor. When you are being told what to eat or drink, you are losing your freedom and your ability to make decisions as adults. Some day he may order you to strip naked, drink poison or allow him sleep with your wives, or when to sleep with your wives. Would you obey your Pastor or follow instructions from God, as written in the true Bible?
