A young couple very much in love were getting married in church. However, Sue the wife was very nervous about the big occasion and so the Pastor chose one verse that he felt would be a great encouragement to them. 1 John 4:18 which says “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear” Rather unwisely the pastor asked the best man to read it and to say that the pastor had felt that this was a very apt verse for Sue and that he would be preaching on it late in the service. However, the best man was not a regular churchgoer and so he did not know the difference between John’s Gospel and the first letter of John. So he introduced his reading by saying that the pastor felt this was a very apt verse for Sue. But he read John 4:18, which says, “You have five husbands and the one you now have is not your husband.”

Things often go wrong, sometimes really wrong at weddings. And at one particular wedding in the Bible we read of a terrible problem that occurred.
