What does the Bible say about Marrying?

These doctrines of Jesus, which are written in the Holy Bible, have the true answer!

Leviticus 22:2 …do not profane My holy name by what they dedicate to Me: I am the LORD.

The Wicked Have No Right to Marry

Psalms 50:16-17 ...to the wicked God says: “What right have you to declare My statutes, or take My covenant in your mouth, seeing you hate instruction and cast My words behind you?

Priests…

Leviticus 10:9-10 ...It shall be a statute forever throughout your generations, that you may distinguish between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean…

So…

1Timothy 5:22 Do not lay hands on anyone hastily, nor share in other people’s sins; keep yourself pure.

Hebrews 13:4 Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled: but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.

1 Corinthians 7:2because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.

Mark 10:7-8 ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh.

Malachi 2:15 And why one? He seeks godly offspring.

Jesus Warns Those who Fear Him…

Matthew 5:32 ...whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery. (Meaning one who has been Biblically put away for adultery or an unbeliever who was divorced for departing from their marriage)

2Corinthians 6:14-18 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “ I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.” Therefore “ Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.” “ I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the LORD Almighty.”

1Corinthians 5:9 I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people.

Nehemiah 13:27 Should we then hear of your doing all this great evil, transgressing against our God by marrying pagan women?

Jesus…

Ezra 9:14should we again break Your commandments, and join in marriage with the people committing these abominations? Would You not be angry with us until You had consumed us, so that there would be no remnant or survivor?

If Jesus Doesn’t Want His Followers to Marry an Unbeliever,
Then Why Would He Want an Unbeliever to Marry an Unbeliever?

But you…

Ezekiel 22:26priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things; they have not distinguished between the holy and unholy, nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean…

Ezekiel 11:12 … you have not walked in My statutes nor executed My judgments, but have done according to the customs of the Gentiles which are all around you.

Psalms 50:18 When you saw a thief, you consented with him, and have been a partaker with adulterers.

Romans 2:23 You who make your boast in the law, do you dishonor God through breaking the law?

Romans 1:32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

You…

Isaiah 5:23justify the wicked for a bribe, And take away justice from the righteous man!

Proverbs 17:15 He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just, Both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD.

Proverbs 17:13 Whoever rewards evil for good, Evil will not depart from his house.

Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

The Covenant of Marriage is Sacred...

1 Timothy 4:3 ...which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.

Man of God, would you consent to marrying a homosexual couple? Would you agree to marrying an un-repentant fornicating couple? Is sin not sin and unclean not unclean? Is not marriage a holy covenant established by Jesus for His followers? Then why would you validate those who are unclean / unholy, and uncommitted to God's covenants?
