1st Corinthians 7 So I am reading 1st Corinthians. I have just read the marriage section, chapter 7. Wow. Very interesting. So I take that marriage is not really a good thing because it divides the focus of between God and your wife. Most importantly God comes first and we must please God. So a single man should stay single? Hmm. This one is a hard one to swallow at the moment because I deeply desire to have a wife since I knew any better. Maybe in time I can understand what Paul was meaning here. I am not mad that Paul feels this way. However, I see his point. But can anyone care to elaborate on why as well as explaining it? I would really like to understand.
