Jesus Never Wanted us to Marry


April 29, 2008

The teachings of Jesus is the way of LIFE and truth and the journey to heaven. Jesus is Christ and the savior. Following His instructions and living according to His instructions is our main guarantee of going to heaven.

There are two point one billion Christians in the world, but only a small percentage of them truly understand His teachings, and even fewer live according to them. The vast majority are what we call 鈥淪unday Christians鈥 or 鈥淰erbal Christians鈥, not real ones.

Let us illustrate with the example of marrying and starting families. Jesus told us not to marry and start families.

Why? On what basis?

First of all, we need to know that in His time, He could not tell people directly not to do that; otherwise, he could not preach to them, so He managed to speak in parables not to be understood directly. He said 鈥淭he knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them鈥. At the same time, He also said not to give that which is holy to the dogs, or put your jewels before pigs. That is to say, the core contents would not be told directly. However, as long as we have a deep understanding of His words, we can comprehend their meanings. The book of Matthew tells us what Jesus wants us to know about marrying and starting families

Matthew 10:35

Jesus said, 鈥淚 came not to send peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn men against their fathers, daughters against their mothers, and daughters-in-law against their mothers-in-law. People鈥檚 foes shall be from within their own households. Anyone who loves their father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me and anyone who loves their son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.鈥

Matthew 12:50 Jesus said, 鈥淔or whoever does the pleasure of my Father in heaven, they are my brother, and sister, and mother鈥.

Matthew 19:9 - 19:11 Jesus said, 鈥淚 tell you that any man who divorces his wife except for marital unfaithfulness and marries another woman commits adultery鈥. The disciples asked, 鈥淚f this is the situation between husbands and wives, then is it best not to marry?鈥, and Jesus said, 鈥淣ot everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given. The ones who can accept this, should accept it.鈥

Here, Jesus came very close to explaining that clearly. The disciples asked, 鈥渂est not to marry?鈥, and Jesus encouraged the unmarried lifestyle, 鈥淣ot everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given.鈥 What was 鈥渢his word鈥? It was 鈥渘ot to marry鈥. Therefore, 鈥渘ot to marry鈥 is something that has been given, 鈥渙nly those to whom it has been given鈥 could understand the meaning of 鈥渘ot to marry鈥, but others could neither understand nor accept it.

Matthew 19:29

Therefore, Jesus Christ stressed further, 鈥淎nd everyone who has given up houses, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or child, or land for my name will be given a hundred times as much, and have eternal life鈥.

Lifechanyuan advocates that people not marry, break up nuclear families, and hope that married couples will become Chanyuan Celestials together so they can end their marriage bonds as implemented in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ. The profound meaning of 鈥渘ot to marry and start a family鈥 is for letting people enter the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 22:30

Jesus told us clearly, 鈥淔or when they come back from the dead, there will be no husbands or wives, but they will be as the angels in heaven鈥. This further indicates that those who enter into the kingdom of heaven have not married and that those who have married cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven. Why? Can those who marry not enter the kingdom of heaven? The answer is, NO, they cannot, and the reasons can be found in Lifechanyuan (Chanyuan Corpus and Xuefeng Corpus).

That is it! I have given a further explanation, but whether you can understand it or not is up to your own considering and judging. Therefore, what Xuefeng says does not go against the teachings of Jesus Christ, but carries out Jesus鈥 teachings faithfully.

Christians all over the world, do you understand? Do you deserve to be Christians when you are obsessed with marrying and loving your families?

Do not shout 鈥淟ord! Lord!鈥; Jesus will not hear you.
