Just talking - 2013-12-25-09-25 and then 2014-01-17-21-57

. . . . From the desk of Ms. Ann Abraham . .

Apparently God, when He created everything, and an image of Himself, which He called man, said, “It is not good for man to be alone”.   And so created a being from the rib of man and brought it to man, and man called it “wo””man”””, because she was taken out of man.

And then comes Jesus.  And he is asked about marriage.  And apparently He says, “Some are born eunuchs, and some do not marry for the sake of the Kingdom of God”.

Now, Jesus used to elevate everything in the Law.  If the Law said, “You shall not murder”, then Jesus said, “You shall not get angry with your brother without cause”.

If the Law said, “You shall not commit adultery”, then Jesus said, “He who looks at a woman to lust after (or for) her, has already committed adultery with her in his heart”.  (Oh my, my – looks like we’ve already done it….).


But the tribe of priests in Israel was a real tribe, and they had children… within marriage… 

The first commandment of God, when He created the earth and then man, was “Subdue the earth, and have dominion over it.”

The next commandment was, “Be fruitful and multiply”.  Just as a mango tree is fruitful and has mangoes, so the human being is supposed to have other human beings…. But not all do that… As Jesus said, “Some do not marry for the sake of the Kingdom of God”.  But he was not talking about priests.

Genesis 1, and Matthew.
