Marriage versus Alternate Lifestyles's comment on 2020-07-14 14:06:42:
21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25 And they were both naked, the man and his WIFE, and were not ashamed.
God planned marriage from the start. He officiated at that marriage. Eve was called His Wife.
Me: to know what is right and to do it are two different things. You can do it according as God meant it's to be or you can spin it some other way.
1 Timothy 4:3 actually says that in the last days before Jesus returns: SOCIETY would forbid people to eat meat, or get married!
1 Corinthians 7 covers subjects pertaining to marriage.

You'll always be happier following Jesus and using the Bible as a light for your path. Don't listen to society.

Why is it so important to get married? Who has to marry a couple for it to be right with God?
