The pastor of the Bethel Cathedral of Hope, John Baryogar, has urged a newly wedded couple to live their lives in conformity with principles governing marriage as instituted and ordained by God in keeping with the scriptures.
Rev. Baryogar gave the admonition Saturday, May 3, during the solemnization of holy matrimony between D. Irene Kwanue, and Jimmy N.C. Bokay in Monrovia.
Irene is the daughter of Daily Observer’s educational columnist, C.Y. Kwanue.
Both Irene and Jimmy had obtained their first degree from the African Methodist Episcopal Zion University (AMEZU where their relationship began few years ago.
“From this day onward till death do you part, the two of you are husband and wife; as such, you must live the life of a marry couple with the motto, “Love, not Hatred,” and shun listening to gossips. Do not entertain negative interferences in your relationship,” Rev. Baryogar warned to the delight of the congregation, comprising mainly young people.
According to him, God is the maker of marriage, and as such, the couple should do everything at all times to satisfy or maintain their marital vows relatives to its principles.
Quoting Genesis Chapter two, Pastor Baryogar said, “It is not good for the man to be alone,” because God has made for him a suitable female helper.
Based on this instruction, he maintained that it was important to know that the one, who makes marriage or family, is still on the throne and, as such, “if we obey the principle of the Bible, we will get the desire results from our marriage.”
Other officiating clergies included the Bishop-designate of the Bethel Cathedral of Hope, M. Wolo Belleh, Resident Pastor, Rev. Della B. Belleh, the Assistant Pastor, Rev. Augustus C. Tolbert, among others.
The brief, but time-bound and well coordinated ceremony brought together friends, and relatives of the bride and groom as well as other well-wishers.
