The vast majority of sources cite the wedding ring as being of pagan origin. (google it and see for yourself). The Bible talks much of worldly adornments and their danger. Should Christians have any thing to do with them? Are we compromising with the world by using them in our wedding services? Are we trying to mix paganism with Christ when we speak of marriage symbolising Christ and the Church and the wedding ring symbolising eternity. One symbol is Bibilcal, the other pagan. Can we mix them in the same service? Do Christians love their pagan rings too much to give them up? Have their worldly pagan rings taken the place of God? Is there ANY Bible basis for instituting such a pagan practice?
