There is no scriptural basis for this law.
The Book of Hebrews attests, "Let marriage be held in honor, esteemed worthy, precious and of great price, and especially dear in all things."
The apostle Paul wrote: "Now a bishop must have no grounds for accusation but must be above reproach, the husband of one wife...He must rule his own household well, keeping his children under control, with true dignity, commanding their respect in every way and keeping them respectful."
He further wrote, "But the Holy Spirit distinctly and expressly declares that in the latter times some will turn away from the faith, giving attention to deluding and seducing spirits and doctrines that demons teach...Who forbid people to marry and teach them to abstain from certain kinds of food which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and have an increasingly clear knowledge of the truth."
(1 Timothy 4:1,3)
Marriage is a holy covenant between one man, one woman, and God. It can be likened to a three cord strand of rope. The husband supports and honors his wife and she supports and honors him, and both of them honor God through their faith in Him. God represents the third and most important strand of the rope because without Him as the center of their lives, the relationship between a husband and wife will ultimately fail.
The Catholic argument that if priests are allowed to marry their marriage would somehow interfere or distract them from performing their priestly duties is ridiculous. Furthermore, I believe that if priests were given the option to marry there would be many more men attracted to the field of religious vocations.
I really wish to thank Pamela and Terry for sharing their innermost feelings with everyone. Pam should be called Jobette as she really does have the patience of Job. I also understand why Terry struggled so because his heart was true to his belief. In the end it is clear that God has His hand on their lives and I'm so happy for them.
I love you both and wish you nothing but everlasting happiness!
