He made no bones about it. Promiscuity is an abomination to God. Truth be told, it is better not be yolked in marriage to begin with, but if we choose to do so, we need marry a fellow Christian and should never, ever divorce unless there are extreme extenuating circumstances and we've done everythin possible to save the marriage. Paul avoided relationships entirely, as he saw a relationship as an obstacle that would possibly prevent him from carrying out his sworn duty to proclaim and explain the good news of the Gospel.

Whatcha disagree with? Promiscuity being disallowed? C'mon, don't tell me that.

I wouldn't be surprised (as I agree) if you had an issue with Paul's urging us not to marry but, I think it was more of a personal choice for him. Afterall, he had a really important job and to my knowledge no one since has had THAT weighty of a responsibility since. Ministers/Pastors/Preachers, yes, they have a very important, similar job but they don't have the whole gentile world on their shoulders like Paul did. I could see where Paul just didn't have the time to be in a relationship but I wouldn't expect any of the rest of us to avoid marriage and become celibate -- unless we just make the personal choice to and that's ok if so.

I thin..if you know you cannot be faithful..you should not marry

but these days..all the divorce and remarriage and half brothers and sisters running all over the place

I think people need to learn to be way more forgiving of others and of themselves

and more open minded

and gracious

to be single and fine with it..or two be married and fine with it..these are ideals



we are all only human, after all

we live in such strange times
