Holy matrimony is a right
Mary was conceived by the Holy Spirit before she was married to Joseph. Should she not have been married Joseph because she was pregnancy?
Denying pregnant women the opportunity to say their vows in church is total discrimination that many religious affiliations have gone ahead to embrace. Many Pastors get dramatic about uniting already pregnant women in holy matrimony but it’s totally void.
Fornication is rebuked all over the Bible but what happens when couples want to put an end to this fornication routine by making their marriage official and acceptable before GOD?
Churches should re-consider offering holy matrimony to pregnant women and this is why they deserve to get married.
It’s highlighted in the Bible that all humans are destined to fail in one way or the other. “It’s only GOD who is holy.” When a woman and man fornicate, they have indeed failed God but he is merciful to give them a second chance, which is marriage and a happy life ever after.
Then who is a pastor to stand between that reconciliation of God and his people?
Mind you, disowning unmarried pregnant church members will only ruin their spirituality. Some will opt for abortions while others will become polygamous since they are frustrated about their endeavors for God to bless their marriage.
How about helping the couples in question repent and there after join them in holy matrimony? Marriage when pregnant is a lesser evil than abortion. Any church that sends their members out to the world because of a pregnancy is only leaving them despicable options.
Surely, when God called religious leaders, he preferred them being helpful other than judgy. “Get the speck out of your eye before removing the log in someone else’s eye.”
Start with identifying why Christians at your church get pregnant before marriage than making life hard for one pregnant sheep.
And hey, procreation is part of the reasons we are on earth. I personally see no problem with giving birth, provided they can take responsibility for their child. Churches should carry out all campaigns against pre-marital sex but when things go wrong, they should let them be—after all children are a blessing from God.
And seriously, repentance comes from one’s heart. Why should mature people write bold red apology documents just because they got pregnant? Repentance should be between God and the bride and groom, the Pastor should come in to join them as well.
We are no longer in the Stone Age; people should have the liberty to do what pleases them. I keep wondering why humans are so judgmental yet they are sinful. People should get over their judgmental self because pregnant women deserve a second chance to have church weddings and bring up their kids in the love of Christ.
