Question: Shouldn't All "True Christians" be Unmarried?
The Apostle Paul told us that if you are unmarried (which everyone was at one point in time), you should remain unmarried unless you burn of envy.............
So, are all married Christians just Christians who weren't devoted enough to follow their religion the whole way through?????
Should any of us Christians get married after reading this text???
And if we do marry, aren't we settling for a less "true" form of Christianity???
Answer: Paul also said: For I wish that all men were even as I myself. But each one has his own gift from God, one in this manner and another in that.
1 Corinthians 7:28
But even if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned.
1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, 3 forbidding to marry
The author of Hebrews wrote: Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled
Paul chose not to be married because he had a specific calling and purpose in his life. Some people are meant to get married and have a family AKA Adam and Eve "be fruitful and multiply the earth."
Like the other guy said, if we all chose not to get married we would not reproduce.
