  2. Not allowing a priest to marry is not dogmatic or having to due with morality. Its an act of obedience. Historically many bishops in the past would use their families to keep power and the church dealt with this by not allowing the priests and bishops to marry. In the Eastern catholic church priests are allowed to marry. The pope could decide to make a change in this matter at any time.

  3. 1 Timothy 4:3 condemns heresies like the Manichaeans and Albigensians which said marriage is evil because the body is evil. Paul wasn't warning Timothy about the Cathohlic discipline—after all, Paul himself followed it:
    Indeed, I wish everyone to be as I am [celibate]…Now to the unmarried and to widows I say, it is a good thing for them to remain as they are, as I do… (1 Cor 7:1-2, 7-10)

  4. There is no question that the early Church had married priests. The DISCIPLINE of a celibate priesthood did not begin until the Second Lateran Council in 1139. But the way I see it, St. Paul was LIMITING bishops and deacons to be married ONLY ONCE to avoid scandal. He was not saying that bishops and deacons MUST be married. St. Paul preferred that clergy be celibate. Just because a teaching is not explicitly outlined in the Bible does not mean it should not be followed.

  5. Remember that St. Paul was never married and he was no less of an apostle because he was not married, on the contrary, his whole time was spent on ministry. A married pastor has to spend time with his family and the needs of his congregation. If you keep reading 1 Timothy 15 – St Paul says: "if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth. He didn't say the bible.

  6. Mk10:2:And Pharisees came up and in order to test him asked,"Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?"He answered them,"What did Moses command you?"They said,"Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce,and to put her away.But Jesus said to them,"For your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment.But from the beginning of creation,'God made them male and female.For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife,and the two shall become one flesh.

  7. What about this quote from Jesus you don't understand? "But from the beginning of creation,'God made them male and female.For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife,and the two shall become one flesh, so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. "Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate."

  8. Ah, the Symbol of the Sun to worship the Sungod or Lux Ferre and in the middle of the Sun the Jesuits Symbols of the black Pope. IHS=IsisHorusSeth. What a diabolic deception!
