Jesus is like us

Jesus came into this world and took on all of our humanity in order to be “Like us”. He had all the human desires we experience and enjoy; to eat, sleep, be with friends, and have a mate and children. God created sex and marriage; so you can’t say it would be a sin for Jesus to get married.

Christian Church organizations benefit the most if they say Jesus stayed single. In life, if you want to understand what motivates people in Religion and capitalism to believe a certain way; then follow the money trail! Or like a famous actor in a movie once said “Show me the money”. A married man or woman in the Ministry with a mate and 3 children would need between 2 and 3 times a bigger paycheck; so singles in the Ministry will save the Church untold billions of dollars over these last 1,800 years.

Being like Jesus has nothing to do with your marital status. A Christian isn’t more righteous if they are single; nor are they less righteous if they are married. If you are married Christian you are a married sinner and if you are single Christian, you are still a sinner.

In Christianity, the union of Piety (self righteousness) and permanent celibacy (moral purity) is a very unholy marriage! Why, because there is “None righteous, no not one”. And the lawsuits against the Church prove that almost everyone should get married in order to eliminate unnecessary temptation.

 

There is a verse that tells Christians, “Flee from youthful lust, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and piece, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart”.  When a Christian is “Pursuing” someone who is “Calling on the Lord” with a “Pure heart”, for this pursuing can easily refer to married Christians because they are the largest group that embrace this Bible verse.  All Godly Christians want a mate:  That is righteous (but not perfect); an active faith; a love for God, self and others;  an inner piece that passes understanding; and a pure heart that isn’t contaminated by the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.

 

All human males, including Jesus were tempted with sexual temptation 2,000 years ago.  God tells all humans to be fruitful and multiply (this includes Jesus).  Marriage is God’s blessing for humans that enables us all to enjoy sexual pleasure and avoid the guilt of fornicating.  Satan didn’t create sexual pleasure, God did.  I repeat, Satan didn’t create sexual pleasure, God did. 

 

Jesus is a complete example of God showing humans how to be a better child of God, husband and father; if He is allowed to marry!  Jesus puts His stamp of approval on the Institution of Marriage and the Institution of the Family if He is married.  All Rabi’s 2,000 years ago had to be married.  All deacons in the early church had to be the "husband of one wife" (one at a time---no polygamy) in order to be a church leader.
