Credo #26: The acceptance

Posted: November 26, 2011 in Uncategorized

You are not rejected by God because of your single state. *You are not rejected by God.* This is not to be parsed out as “God is so loving, that He even accepts you as a single because He is is so gracious.” Utter pious bullsh*t. He accepts you in that you are His son. Your state may be such that He moves you to marriage; or even perhaps that He moves you away from it, for a season, or for your life. These things are immaterial to His acceptance of you. This all being said, marriage is His gift, and is meant to be received with Joy for those have it.

In the gospels we read that those in Heaven “neither marry, nor are given in marriage.” In this way, singles model that life we will have in Heaven, just as those who are married live out a picture, or a representation, of Christ and the Church. Do not receive condemnation for being single.
