Is it Scriptural: Should I Get Married? -Jack Kelley



The Christian Issues Network

"Sometimes some say things are scriptural when they may not be Biblical"

Jack Kelley

Should I Get Married?

Q. I have been living with my girlfriend for the past year and have had a relationship for 3 years. We live together as man and wife but with no official ceremony. A friend(former) and I recently quarreled over the status of my relationship and he pointed out in Corinthians the prohibition against fornication. Ironically I am now inclined to agree with my former friend that I should be officially married to the woman I live with, but I still fail to see why God would care more about a ceremony and a band of gold rather than honest love and commitment between one man and one woman. I would be grateful for your perspective on this matter. If I abide in this relationship the Bible states I will not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. Does this mean that even though I believe I will go to Hell instead?


A. It’s not the ceremony or ring that counts with God, these are man made devices.  What matters to God is the commitment they symbolize. It says the two of you have officially become one before God and man.  Continuing in your current relationship cannot cause you to lose your salvation, and nowhere does the Bible say that.  It says all the sins of your life were forgiven at the cross (Colossians 2:13-14) and your salvation was guaranteed the moment you believed (Ephesians 1:13-14).

But it also says God is pleased when we live according to His standards and blesses us for doing so. His standards are one man, one woman, one life. Many feel an official wedding ceremony is the bast way to convey that idea to the world.  If you’re persuaded that’s the way to go then you should follow through with it.

"When You Need to Know"



Koenig's International News
Washington: 12:35:09 pm - July 5, 2011 - Jerusalem: 7:35:09 pm - Tammuz 3, 5771

Rear Admiral Barry C. Black, the 62nd Chaplain of the United States Senate, reflected on the true meaning of Independence Day and asked if Americans are “free indeed” during a Sunday sermon.


Yet “in spite of the marvelous freedom we have in this great land, there is still slavery in America because people are enslaved by sin, and the word of God declares if you are addicted to sin you are a slave of sin,” said Black in an In Touch Ministries special Independence Day program.

By recognizing that sin still enslaves us and that although we may be socially free we are not spiritually free, Independence Day “is not just a declaration of something that just happened centuries ago, but something that has happened in the here and the now,” he said.

The Chaplain cited John 8:31-36: “To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, ‘If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.’ They answered him, ‘We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?’ Jesus replied, ‘Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. ‘”

"The men who have done the most for God in this world have been early on their knees. He who fritters away the early morning, its opportunity and freshness, in other pursuits than seeking God will make poor headway seeking Him the rest of the day. If God is not first in our thoughts and efforts in the morning, He will be in the last place the remainder of the day." - E. M. Bounds
