    The Catholic Church, of course, prefers that Catholic marry Catholics. However, if a Catholic seeks to marry a non-Catholic (or even a non-Christian), they must be granted special permission, and certain assurances are to be made in order for this permission to be granted.

    The Catholic spouse must promise to avoid anything that would lead to their defection from the Church (ie, engaging in non-Catholic religious activity). Any children born to the couple are to be baptized and catechized in the Catholic faith. They attend a marriage preparation program in the Church (called Pre-Cana) in order to be educated on the Catholic understanding of marriage and be made aware of the obligations a Catholic marriage entails.

    If any of the Church's conditions are not met, the Church will not grant the couple the dispensation to marry within the Church.

    These precautions, I believe, fulfill the Paul's prohibition against being "yoked" with an unbeliever.
    I believe its saying not to knowingly be joined to a non believer in marriage, and its being given to the early church where a spouse becomes a believer and one has not (whole context)(for the believer to stay but being free if the non believer leaves) and warning about doing it (marriage) deliberately with those outside the faith.

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson

    I can't even say Protestants all are opposed. In fact, many of them will grant that option without the conscientiousness of the church. So, even though I believe it bad and won't do it, your church is more conservative on this view than a good number of protestants are. A 'believer' who wants to marry an unbeliever? Imho, is compromised in their love and devotion to the Savior and caught up in the flesh.

    1 Corinthians 7:1-40 Corinthians 6:14
    I know of one family, the wife a Christian, married an atheist. She and the two daughters: Christians. The husband and son: atheists. Imho, she doomed her husband and son by disobedience (though God may yet do something in either of their lives). Jesus said not all could refrain, but the context was about Christian in-house directives. Paul said not all could refrain. Neither The Lord Jesus Christ nor Paul condoned mixed marriage by heart. We are either believers, whole-heart, or else it is simply 'faking it.' Add-on accessorized "Christ," rather than fully clothed in Him. Romans 13:14


    Perhaps treating them both as unbelievers makes the point moot BUT often times, the wishy-washy luke warm try and come back to Christ, and in so doing, divide the family, having served two masters. I just can't find it in myself. "If you want the Lord's blessing, both of you must 'seek' the Lord's blessing, otherwise your union is a civil matter where neither of you really want the Lord's blessing."

    Of course, it is paganism in the 'guise' of Christianity. You clearly don't know your bible. You can't even quote it, have to ask me about where it says this or that, even. Are you by chance a pastor? Professor? Yeah, I'm not really impressed with "Post"-Christian academia either. You've marginalized yourselves into non-existence. It is desperation of the pagans to try to hold on to something that should have died when the Holy Spirit moved out ages ago.

    Huh?
    Don't worrty about it. Your profile mentioned that you are a teacher.

    No, sir. I believe that clarification on the incest question will lend some clarity to your purpose of marriage question.
    I believe that you're set fast in some kind of religious cement, and that you will never be able to review your position.

    Your equality argument just doesn't work.
    Well, of course you would not see that it does. And that's interesting, because a huge % of folks all around here would understand it instintaly and immediately.

    Remember, your reason for wanting incestuous marriage to be illegal is because of its link to birth defects.
    Absolutely! How abouty you?
    And since I could tell you a very great about how equality workls in a community I don't need youi to tell me that I don't count upon this reason to exclude brothers from ssm as highly important. Social, political, working and living equality is very dear to me. I used to write it into courses, teach it in courses, and have lived it for as long as I can remember.

    If this risk could be totally removed, would you be for the legalization of incestuous marriage?
    Oh, good graciousness! You've crashed and burned on the legal, religious, logical and philosophical angles, so now you want to retreat yet further into the corners of 'IF'......
    If I was female I'd be a grandmother..........

    But equality is a very young child where you are, methinks, it's only 50 years since inter-racial marriage was made lawful throughout the US.

    Well, bully for you!

    The point was, you assert one idea. You know the Apostle Paul's stance. It is even the Lord Jesus Christ's stance (one and the same). -Lon
    No...... I think that Paul was talking about Roman and Romanised folks, in a society which counted bi-sexuality as not only normal, but reasonable and socially acceptable. Bi-sexuality and promiscuity could and can s;pread illness through a whole community.

    And Jesus said nothing about homosexuality or bisexuality. What he DID say was that if a person fel;t that ANY part of their body could lead them astray from his path, that it was good for them to 'cut that member off' thereby supporting spitual or physical genderlessness, but many here are most vexed by that passage (and the idea of genderlessness) which is repeated by Jesus in the guise of.... Paul.

    Look, I know that you believe that Paul was Jesus, and Cephas was probably Jesus when he had his visions at Joppa thus changing the food laws for Christians etc. There are members who believe that Jesus led the Israelites out of Egypt.

    I believe that Jesus...... was Jesus.

    What is to know ? God says do not and those that do not know God say do !

    There is no such thing as a SSM Christian.

    The human race does not get to make the rules God does and did, and sadly many follow Satan and love their sin more than God.

    I have enjoyed Glassjester's posts on this thread.
    And although we differ so much he would be welcome in our home, to our hospitailty and any help he might need.

    You are a condescending man.
    You can't seem to help yourself.
    Yep....... Sometimes, when faced with certain folks, my humour gets the better of me.
    But God loves laughter, not the kind or venomous stuff that you spit out.

    Ah, but that was 'back in the day' a single law amongst 613 others, many of which I expect many Christians might ignore, have forgotten, or claim to be repealed.
    So now you can cherry-pick the laws you want to try and enforce, whilst discarding laws which you don't like or cannot see any point in.
    Yes, Jesus did repeal 96 of them with a sentence, because they were all being used to fleece the poor working Jews and line the pockets of the fat, rich, quisling hypocritical priesthood....... John the Immerser described them all perfectly, and set up a means of redemtion separate from the sacrificial money-go-round.

    During his mission for the working people Jesus showed that all the other laws should be kept, but that togetherness, love, understanding were needed first to bring the people close enough together to make a difference against the priesthood and corrupt system.

    Somehow a very few Christians have spun this into a mess of self-righteous hatred, indignation, bad-judgement and dangerous attitudes. The vast majority of Christians are bringing love and understanding to the table first and foremost. They are winning, and thank goodness for that.

    There is no such thing as a SSM Christian.
    There is no such thing as a hate filled, self-righteous, prejudiced Christian.
    The Churches are moving away from any extremist and absolutely-wrong position.

    The human race does not get to make the rules God does and did, and sadly many follow Satan and love their sin more than God.
    OK.... So God is making the rules, and enforcing them. Hence the Churches are moving towards more freedom and equality. The Churches were so corrupted in the past that you can hardly tell me how righteous they ever were before.

    i've always read it as pulling in the same direction, toward a common goal (that of raising a Godly, righteous, moral family)

    The churches that allow or promote SSM are not following God they are following Satan.

    YOU nor any denomination gets to re-define what God has already condemned. YOU or anyone can do whatever they want but everyone will stand before God some on their way to heaven and some on their way to eternal hell.
    Heb 4:2
    For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

    We don't know Christ after the flesh. You married a woman after the flesh by your own admission. I hope that you'll start a thread about it and why it is wrong. see 2Corinthians 5:15-17 2 Corinthians 5:2,5,8,10,11,15-17 Jude 1:4 talks also about the problem of the flesh creeping into the Body of Christ and a need to guard against such, even guarding against such infilteration on TOL.

Paul.
    Peter, Paul, Jude? They all walked with the Savior and all talk about it. Again, I think you caught in the flesh but CANNOT know Christ that way. 2 Corinthians 5:5-17 is conditional upon one either being in the flesh or in the Spirit. Paul insists we cannot know Christ after the flesh. Trying to see everything in scripture from that perspective is what makes liberal churches that Jude 1:4 warns about.

    I do too. What I find stranger, is that you pit scripture against scripture, Jesus against Jesus. It is schizophrenic in my estimation.
    The Lord Jesus Christ isn't divided.
    My New Years Resolution: 1 Peter 3:15
    Omniscient without man's qualification. John 1:3 "Nothing"
    Colossians 1:17 "Nothing" John 15:5 "Nothing"
    Mighty, ALL mighty (omnipotent). Revelation 1:8
    No possible limitation Isaiah 40:25 Joshua 24:15
    Infinite (Omnipresent) Psalm 145:3 Hebrews 4:13

    Is Calvinism okay? Yep

    Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think... Amen. -Ephesians 3:20 & 21

    1Co 13:11 ... when I became an adult, I set aside childish ways. Titus 3:10 Ephesians 4:29-32; 5:11

    Separation of church and State is not atheism "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..."
