YEN.com.gh earlier reported of a resolution by the Church of Pentecost to ban amorous pre-wedding photos.
This has generated debate among a cross-section of Ghanaians, as varied opinions have been expressed with respect to the decision.
For some reasons however, some people may not be too excited with the church’s decision to ban such photos:
1. People can indulge in immorality in secret:
The decision to ban such photos would stimulate an argument that people can choose to indulge in acts of immorality despite the intent behind it. Banning the photos may therefore achieve less-than-preferred results.
2. Harsh directive; it is a once-in-a-lifetime event:
Again, the directive may been seen as harsh as marriage and all of its related activities are a once-in-a-lifetime event. For that reason, it may not be the best course of action.
3. Hypocrisy of the church and its members:
The decision may be regarded as hypocritical, as little meaning may be attached by the prospective couple to such photos beyond the joy of getting married.
4. Premarital counselling should eliminate immorality hence no harm with photos:
Again, it may be argued that premarital counselling should serve the purpose of dealing with issues of immorality, especially before marriage.
5. Church should rather focus on teaching important values for life
It can also be argued that the church as an institution should spend more time teaching members important values. With that done, issues of immorality may be substantially brought to a minimal level.
