Are You Ready for Marriage?

In 1950, this quiz (for women) appeared in the comic book “Boy Meets Girl” issue #3. See the rest of the quiz, and the answers (although they are upside down and you really don't need them, do you?) at Gamma Squad. Link -via Buzzfeed

Marriage was never predicated on anything but a compromise with the sinful nature. I know the popular and traditional sentiment is that marriage is a holy sanctuary backed by God, but that is patently false when one examines the references to it in the actual Bible.

Marriage is a compromise with lust, so that the passions may be directed to one individual, rather than something like polygynandry or sodomy. It was a way of confining sexual lust to control for it's destructive properties, which include social as well as health reasons.

But, it says that "at the resurrection" which is that period of being "born again" after the "circumcision", people will not be taken in marriage or given in marriage. Because they will already be purified of all egotism.

Yea, I know, nobody reads the Bible. I mean virtually nobody even those who claim to. They read what they want.

Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given. For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others have been made eunuchs; and others have renounced marriage because of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it. Matthew 19: 11

You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. Matthew 22: 29

^^These verses are attributed to Jesus^^

This passage is attributed to Peter:

1Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.

2Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

3Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

8I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, it is good for them if they abide even as I.

9But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.

- 1 Corinthians 7

It can be humorous how much both Christians and Atheists cherry-pick and twist the Bible according to their desires.
