Neither does the bible give the church (or church elders) responsibility for marriage.
Marriage in the bible is decided by the girls father; likewise in divorce the husband is the decider.
Pastors and priests who interfere in marriage are no better than adulterers. And such as these have deferred their usurped responsibilities (usurped from the husband) to pagan government 9 times out of 10 these days.
There is nothing Christian about our government, nor are our Churches operating according to scriptural example.
We have mostly false christians going to false church promoting a pagan government as their false christian government.
All are more or less deceived living the lives of and being ruled over by pagans.
