The Wedding Ring – To Wear or Not To Wear
Is it wrong to wear a wedding ring? My husband and I used to wear our wedding rings, but later took them off because of [statements from church founders] that church members had pointed out to us. I have recently started wearing my wedding ring because of returning to college and working outside of the home with our children being in school. My husband and I don’t look at the wedding ring as adornment, but like wearing a watch. We also feel that the wedding ring is cultural and isn’t violating any biblical principles.
Concerns have been expressed to us such as: a) it is a pagan symbol for concubines to the sun god – symbolizing the loss of virginity and the ring and finger symbolizing a sexual act, b) the Bible says not to wear gold or be adorned, c) we are living in the anti-typical day of atonement and all jewelry came off.
We don’t want to be a stumbling block to anyone or do something God doesn’t want us to do.
