Marriage, Masturbation, and Doomsday

Shatan Paul mentions a “present crisis” in regards to marriage and ones sex drive. What is the nature of this crisis?

25 Now about virgins: I have no command from the Lord, but I give a judgment as one who by the Lord’s mercy is trustworthy. 26 Because of the PRESENT CRISIS, I think that it is good for a man to remain as he is.

Paul says “time is short”.

“For this world in its present form is passing away.”

John the Apostle authored Revelations. Is Paul aware of the coming Terrible Day of our Lord – a doomsday that will transform the world? Yes! He is preparing the early Christians for that day by warning them not to spill their seed outside a woman’s uterus, or males will lose a part of their soul – and thus not enter the New Heaven and Earth when it arrives. It never arrived! Thus – ENTER ANOTHER CRISIS FOR THE EARLY CHURCH!

How was this crisis solved by the Christian Apologists who saw their flock walk away? They grabbed them by the scruff of their neck and jammed their faces down in their crotch, and cried – FOR SHAME!

29 What I mean, brothers and sisters, is that the time is short. From now on those who have wives should live as if they do not; 30 those who mourn, as if they did not; those who are happy, as if they were not; those who buy something, as if it were not theirs to keep; 31 those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away.

Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 6 I say this as a concession, not as a command. 7 I wish that all of you were as I am. But each of you has your own gift from God; one has this gift, another has that.”

Paul was a Jew who subscribed to the myths about Lilith who took the sperm that males ejaculated outside a woman, and bred an evil race. Paul castrated himself lest he masturbate, and not be admitted to the new kingdom. The crisis may have been the destrction of the temple in 70 A.D. thus the Apostles of Jesus in Jerusalem were in a real crisis because John’s Revelations are centered around the Aaronoid Priesthood of which he belonged. Judgement Day never came, and thus the Sons and Daughters of Aaron never came to rule in the temple – again!

This is why he fell out of favor, and Paul’s Lilith Cult came to the forefront, because it was now a tool to SHAME & TERRORIZE believers and non-believers into submission. Enter, the Billy Graham Crusade – the next Hitler who said this to Himmler as his troops marched into Paris;

“If the Jews did not exist, we would have had to invent them.”

Paul and his Catholic church created a faux crisis over sex, and thus there exist a never ending crisis over our sexual urges that is being laid in the lap of the President of the United States, who Christians are turning into our national crisis, now that the Crusades are ending in Iraq and Afghanistan – and the Evil Empire is a have for greedy Capitialists.

Enough! Jesus and God hate this phony sex crisis cult – and want it to end – wihout anyone going to any cross!

Knock it off!

Jon the Nazarite

The history of marriage in the Catholic Church has been a continuation of the Judaic concept of marriage. Although at the time of Christ marriage was considered a necessary passage into adulthood, the Church introduced the notion into the ancient world that the celibate unmarried state was preferable and more holy. As a result of directly challenging the social norms regarding marriage and the buying and selling of women into marriage, and particularly in defending the right of women to choose to remain unmarried virgins for the sake of Christ, there were many virgin martyrs in the first few centuries of the Catholic Church. The stories associated with these virgin martyrs often make it clear that they were martyred for their refusal to marry, not necessarily simply their belief in Jesus Christ.

Kabbalah and Sex, part 2

by Jacobus Swart

It would seem the ancient Israelites had a particular horror of nakedness, etc., yet they swore solemn oaths by laying hands upon each other’s penises, and that not even above clothing. It is interesting that, whilst one could lay ones hand on the phallus of another man when taking an oath, it was pretty much taboo laying your hand on another man for sexual reasons, or on your own penis for the same reasons.
Masturbation and “nocturnal emissions” were considered “polluting experiences.” As someone once said: “The seed must not go into the earth, but must go into the womb, because on the Last Day Lilith would collect this spilled semen and turn it into demons.” Actually in some Kabbalistic legends it is believed that Lilith, a female demon and the first wife of Adam, is all the time changing spilled semen into demons, who would haunt the soul of the guilty party after death. This checked back to the Talmudic legend that Lilith lurks around for shed seed, stealing it with which to make little demons in order to torture mankind. Thus in theory man, shedding his seed outside its proper place, would populate the “spirit world with devils!”

Although the Church was not opposed to marriage, the preference for the celibate state came from the example of Jesus, the concern about the imminent coming of the Kingdom of God as supported by Jesus and early followers such as Saint Paul, and the exhortation by Jesus to avoid ‘earthly ties’. As a consequence, the first-century Christians placed less value on the family and saw celibacy (not marrying) and freedom from family ties as a preferable state. Paul had suggested that marriage be used only as a last resort by those Christians that found it too difficult to remain chaste.[2]

Augustine, the Bishop of Hippo, believed that marriage was a sacrament, and wrote: “the first natural bond of human society is man and wife.” [5] Other Church Fathers were more negative about the married state. Jerome wrote: “It is not disparaging wedlock to prefer virginity. No one can make a comparison between two things if one is good and the other evil” (Letter 22). On the extreme side, Tertullian argued that marriage “consists essentially in fornication” (An Exhortation to Chastity”) Cyprian, Bishop of Carthage said that the first commandment given to men was to increase and multiply, but now that the earth was full there was no need to continue this process of multiplication. Augustine corrected this thinking and declared marriage good, “Therefore marriage and fornication are not two evils, whereof the second is worse: but marriage and continence are two goods, whereof the second is better.” [6]

The early Church recognized matrimony as one of the seven sacraments, but did not consider them equal in importance. The sacraments necessary for initiation into the Church or for priestly ordination (Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Orders) were developed very early in Church history and were given a higher value and attention than some of the other sacraments because they were necessary for membership and also because they put an indelible mark on the soul.[7]. The sacrament of Eucharist was ritualized with the Last Supper and was celebrated from the earliest Church history. The rites for the lesser sacraments of Penance, Matrimony, and Extreme Unction developed over a longer time. Matrimony, for most of Church history, was a sacrament celebrated (as in the Judaic tradition) without clergy and was done according to local customs. The first available written detailed account of a Christian wedding in the West dates from the 9th century and appears to be identical to the old nuptial service of Ancient Rome. [8]

“Pope Paul III” (Artist: Titian) 1490-1576, ca. 1543, Reign 13 October 1534 – 10 November 1549, Excommunicated Henry VIII, Presided over Council of Trent
It was not until the sixteenth century, when the Protestant Reformation challenged the seven sacraments, including Matrimony, that the Church officially named the sacraments for the first time in Canon Law at the Council of Trent in 1547. Prior to that time the seven sacraments, including the sacrament of Matrimony were accepted as part of the apostolic oral and written tradition without controversy or debate. The Seventh Session of the Council of Trent stated that the seven sacraments were not new doctrine, but the Council saw a need to put information into the official Canon, “adhering to the doctrine of the holy Scriptures, to the apostolic traditions, and to the consent of other councils and of the Fathers.”

 1 Now for the matters you wrote about: “It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman.” 2 But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband. 3 The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife. 5 Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 6 I say this as a concession, not as a command. 7 I wish that all of you were as I am. But each of you has your own gift from God; one has this gift, another has that.
 8 Now to the unmarried[a] and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do. 9 But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.
 10 To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. 11 But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.
 12 To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord): If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. 13 And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him. 14 For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.
 15 But if the unbeliever leaves, let it be so. The brother or the sister is not bound in such circumstances; God has called us to live in peace. 16 How do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or, how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife?

17 Nevertheless, each person should live as a believer in whatever situation the Lord has assigned to them, just as God has called them. This is the rule I lay down in all the churches. 18 Was a man already circumcised when he was called? He should not become uncircumcised. Was a man uncircumcised when he was called? He should not be circumcised. 19 Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing. Keeping God’s commands is what counts. 20 Each person should remain in the situation they were in when God called them.
 21 Were you a slave when you were called? Don’t let it trouble you—although if you can gain your freedom, do so. 22 For the one who was a slave when called to faith in the Lord is the Lord’s freed person; similarly, the one who was free when called is Christ’s slave. 23 You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of human beings. 24 Brothers and sisters, each person, as responsible to God, should remain in the situation they were in when God called them.
Concerning the Unmarried
 25 Now about virgins: I have no command from the Lord, but I give a judgment as one who by the Lord’s mercy is trustworthy. 26 Because of the present crisis, I think that it is good for a man to remain as he is. 27 Are you pledged to a woman? Do not seek to be released. Are you free from such a commitment? Do not look for a wife. 28 But if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. But those who marry will face many troubles in this life, and I want to spare you this.
 29 What I mean, brothers and sisters, is that the time is short. From now on those who have wives should live as if they do not; 30 those who mourn, as if they did not; those who are happy, as if they were not; those who buy something, as if it were not theirs to keep; 31 those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away.
 32 I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs—how he can please the Lord. 33 But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world—how he can please his wife— 34 and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—how she can please her husband. 35 I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord.
 36 If anyone is worried that he might not be acting honorably toward the virgin he is engaged to, and if his passions are too strong[b] and he feels he ought to marry, he should do as he wants. He is not sinning. They should get married. 37 But the man who has settled the matter in his own mind, who is under no compulsion but has control over his own will, and who has made up his mind not to marry the virgin—this man also does the right thing. 38 So then, he who marries the virgin does right, but he who does not marry her does better.[c]
 39 A woman is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to marry anyone she wishes, but he must belong to the Lord. 40 In my judgment, she is happier if she stays as she is—and I think that I too have the Spirit of God.
