White signifies purity and is the traditional color to signify the bride is a Virgin.

The Bible does not allow sex outside of marriage except to raise up an offspring for a deceased family member.

If she has had sex with the groom or boyfriends in the past, then she should not wear white.

The wedding is to be within the confines of the Church and not 'allowed' by the State.

Man has now given the State authority to decide if two people can be married.

I said "IF" as if you have to get a license from the State, that license can be denied.

The bible mentions weddings, but does not give scripture on the way they are to be performed. If it were mentioned then the world would be bound to that method. God establishes governments for his purpose; Ezra 7:25, Titus 3:1. Each government has determined what a marriage ceremony consists of, dealing with each locations laws and customs. As far as I know marriages in one country is recognized by all countries (someone with more knowledge than I might be able to comment on that in depth). The parable of the rich ruler who gave a wedding for his son, mentions a proper wedding garment but does not identify what it is. This parable is more concerned with Christ than earthly weddings but could be applicable. Your question, indicates to me, that you are concerned about a previous marriage and your purity because of it. If your previous husband has died then you are able to remarry Rom 7:2, 1 Cor 7:2-3. If the husband is still living I do not believe that the scripture allows remarriage 1 Cor 7:11.

What exactly Does the Bible actually tell us about weddings? Why can't u wear white to my wedding to a second husband? I've found nothing to support a "white" wedding purity blah blah blah statement IN the Bible! Only in a church full of "Christians" would anyone be shunned for wearing white!

The King James Bible was translated by 56 VERY learned scholars, all of whom double checked each other's work VERY extensively. Therefore, it can be concluded that nobody's opinion was interjected into the translation of the King James Bible, but fact and fact alone. Exactly what the Hebrew text of the Old Testament & Greek text of the Textus Receptus, which the New Testament was translated from, say exactly what the King James Bible says, no opinion involved. Don't buy into the lies that are told by the degenerates/reprobates of this day who want to cast doubt in people's minds the veracity of the REAL Bible(KJV 1611).


tihstae's comment on 2020-07-29 13:10:42:

To all those who think that this verse and other verses like this in the Old Testament only apply to the Old Testament, didn't. Jesus say in Matthew 5:17, "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil."?


Mishael's comment on 2020-07-02 05:03:51:

All I can add is, the same people that eat curly fries smothered in processed cheese, onions, jalapeo peppers and hot dog chili

will probably buy those books.

I've always believed we should ask the Lord what He thinks? One of the good ones was Healing The Sick by TL Osborne. I actually got healed reading a couple of chapters! If the Lord says it's useful I do not judge the writer.

He had to sit on me many times to squash that judgmental attitude out of me :/


zoey jenkins's comment on 2020-07-01 12:17:39:

it seems like a lot of people forget that the writers of the bibles opinions can influence the scriptures. anyone can say they were "inspired by god" and write a long book.


mc's comment on 2020-04-29 14:03:25:

I agree wholeheartedly with your letter there is nothingmore to say you said it all lets hope the coming of god will be soon


Anonymous's comment on 2015-07-05 06:59:58:

I like Mike 's comment, he is absolutely right. This was written before Jesus became our ultimate sacrifice and died for our sins, and rose for our justification. Now dealing with the passage,Mathis clearly pints out that homosexuality is a sin. A sin is a sin, whether it is sex between a woman and a man before marriage, homosexual sin, lying, greed, and having false Gods. It 's all considered sin. And love thy neighbor simply means that we all should love each other with the Agape love that Jesus loved us all. Not to sleep with them.


Allison's comment on 2014-10-13 10:56:29:

If everyone would follow the blue print bible that has been set forth for us to use as our guide, then everything will be alright. I too agree that God word is true and he is a God that does not lie. Therefore homosexuality is clearly stated in this verse Leviticus 18 22 and I will follow God 's word. Simply stated! God 's Will is done and we need to get in line with His Will.


Summer's comment on 2014-09-06 20:55:54:

God will love you through every choice you make, and do will I. I may not approve of it and it may not be what God wanted you to do, but you still will be loved. God doesnt want for you to be with the same sex, but its your choice, you pay for the consequences. Judgements not going to be easy for you or anyone else, but its also no ones fault but your own. Dont let someone get to you, pray and God will handle them. Just believe that God is going to be with you through everything and trust that he will help you. He 's there when no one else is. When you feel as if you don 't belong. God put you there for a reason find out that reason and do what God wants you to do! I love ypu and God bless!


Therese's comment on 2014-09-05 21:54:13:

To the best of my knowledge, God gave us the 10 commandments and the Our Father, Men wrote the Bible. the words, language, and translation, have changed so much in the passed years, and centuries, and guess what, God has not changed, the prayer and 10 commandments have not changed so follow God and his commandments and say his prayer, and you can 't go wrong, and yes keep reading the Bible, but if there is something you don 't understand, pray about it and i promise you 'll get your answer, and also always treat people as you think God would would treat them, don 't judge, and if you feel they have a problem pray for them.


Mike's comment on 2014-06-09 19:13:17:

I would like everyone to realize this is Leviticus. This is before Jesus died on the cross. I would like to point out also the reason for Jesus 's sacrifice to allow us to repent our sins. That is why nobody burns offerings and that is why you can be forgiven of your sins by allowing Jesus into your heart and accepting him as your savior. On top of that, many people act with surprising hatred towards gay people this is not His word. His teachings are of respect and love towards all fellow people, regardless of gender, skin, sexuality, or even the religion they practice. Jesus love.


Flaker's comment on 2014-03-05 20:42:47:

OK this is how I see it the bible is very clear on how we should live our life Homosexuality is sin not that I am judging anybody for thats not my job only the father himself can do that It is said that as a christian we as his followers are to preach the word and it speaks directly against it There are many people who manipulate the bible to benefit them for example people who have relations with a lot of women quote the old testament that speaks it is better to put your seed in the belly of a whore than to spend on the ground Well that is why its the old testament it s when the world was being repopulated The same goes for an eye for an eye That s why there is a new testament and as for that it tells us how to be christian like and from what my bible tells me any man who lies with a man or any woman who lies with another women with open their eyes in hell after their last breath I am taking what Jesus said and doing my best to follow it I do not hate anybody who chooses to live their on way neither does the lord even homosexuals but if you live in sin you will go to hell and it is a sin God Bless America and God Bless All Of You

It seems pretty clear cut to me God said what he meant and meant what he said

Honestly The Bible Has Many Ways Of Being Interpreted So I Don t See This As Being The One You should Take Literal

God said it, I believe it, and that settles it for me.


Phil Davis's comment on 2013-11-18 18:51:08:

I really think you people who claim to believe should go do some good in the world. Go raise someone from the grave, go heal the million of people with cancer, go do any thing but sit around and judge other people. If you really believe the bible do some thing beside making up reasons why you can't do what the bible clearly states a believer can do.

James 5:14-15 "Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the Church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. And their prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make them well. And if they have committed sins, these will be forgiven."

John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
Mark 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
