Dating before marriage has been condemned and described as a dirty game by a Nigerian pastor, Obie Jason.
According to the clergyman in a few minutes video now viral on the social media, dating is unbiblical and should not be encouraged in the Christiandom, noting that it does not reveal the character of the opposite sex as pictured and understood by many.
Pastor Jason continued that a man should go directly to the point by proposing and with no further waste of time proceed to marry the lady he loves. He condemned the fact that some pastors preach and encourage their members on dating, which according to him has destroyed a lot of young men and women.
Pastor Jason insisted that dating in borrowed from the world and shouldn’t be practised among believers.
He said; ”Do you know it is wrong for Christians to date? Someone would get mad but just hold on a little. If you check the scriptures, the first time the bible talked about marriage, there was no dating involved. That was Genesis Chapter 2. The bible said God caused the man to sleep, the man he made Adam and then he took the rib out of his body and then he made the woman and then brought the woman to the man. There was no dating.”
Pastor Jason further backed his claim using the case of Isaac, the son of Abraham who got married without what is called dating today.
“If you read the bible, the new testament which was written for Christians, you would find out that the only place the bible talked about getting married or preparing for marriage was in 1st Corinthians 7:9. This scripture says ”Get married,” the clergy noted.
He added, “If you meet someone and you feel that I can go ahead with this one, the bible said just get married. You don’t need to delay.
The whole dating stuff is something that is borrowed from the world and it is destroying a lot of Christians. A lot of women and young ladies are having heartbreaks. Some of them are affected and impacted mentally because a young man will pick a lady and then carry her saying lets get to know ourselves and all, promise her marriage and after a while he will dump her and the lady will have heartbreak. We see a lot of things going wrong”
”You can never see anywhere in the bible where it is stated that we should date and the scriptures never imply that. That is something borrowed from the world and it is not good. When you date, you get dirty. Dating is simply a game played by unbelievers” he said
