Okay maybe I should re-post to clarify. I’m not a bitter single that thinks all marriages are bondage and make it so people cannot serve God. It is just that I see many couples today that fall under the last post.
If marriage was supposed to hinder our service to our Lord then it would not be designed of God. But the problem is that age old thing called our flesh. Its ridiculous how many guys I talk to that are just concerned about whether they get a “hot” girl. If marriage was only about exercising our sexuality then fidelity would not be a necessary attribute, thus manifesting what we see in our world today.
The problem is we try to define marriage through what we feel, instead of through God Himself. Marriage is a picture of Christ and the Church. Christ loves and protects His church so that it would in turn love and respect Him for who He is. The power and love of God combined with the physical presence of the Church on earth work together to bring worship to God the Father. This is a picture of marriage in humanity. Two hearts, dreams and visions combined to propel both lives further than they could have gone on their own.
