Vad Bibeln lär om äktenskap

Ex-Gay Watch ger oss denna tänkvärda helgunderhållningen:

WHAT WE CAN LEARN ABOUT MARRIAGE FROM THE BIBLE

From Adam we learn that there is not need for a marriage.

From Seth we learn that procreation with your sisters is OK.

From Abraham we learn that a man can marry his sister – and lie about it. We also learn that if your wife is barren, she can give you her maid to impregnate.

From Lot's daughters we learn that if you don't have a man and you want a child, you can always just get your father drunk and have sex with him.

From Jacob we learn that a wife can be purchased by seven years of labor. We also learn that it is acceptable to deceive a groom into marrying the wrong woman and the marriage is valid. We also learn that having two sisters as wives is a blessing.

From Onan we learn that a man is obligated to impregnate his brother's widow. We also learn that when having sex with your sister-in-law, you are not supposed to pull out before ejaculating (it's wicked in God's sight).

From Salmon we learn that your son born of a prostitute will bring recognition and honor to your name for millennia and your descendant will be the Messiah.

From Ruth we learn that a woman belongs to her husband's family even after his death. We also learn that premarital seduction is honorable.

From David we learn that marriage (to one of your several wives) is for establishing connection into the royal family. We also find that if you kill a man to take his wife, she’ll provide you an heir who will be both wise and wealthy.

From Solomon we learn that a man can have as many wives as he can afford - along with twice as many concubines.

Paul tells us some very interesting things about marriage: It's better never to marry (unless you can't control your passions). And if do have a spouse and they are not a believer, then if s/he leaves you, let them go.

Even Jesus had some opinions about marriage: be sure to have enough wine at the ceremony and second marriages are adultery (even if the ex-spouse is a non-believer).

Yes, there is so much we can learn about marriage from Scripture. But one thing is clear: The idea of "one man, one woman" marriage may indeed be "traditional" but it certainly isn't Biblical.

"From Salmon we learn that your son born of a prostitute will bring recognition and honor to your name for millennia and your descendant will be the Messiah."

Solomon, alltså Salomo, skall det vara.

"From Ruth we learn that a woman belongs to her husband's family even after his death. We also learn that premarital seduction is honorable."

... premarital seduction by the lady... ;=)

Jämförelsen mellan Jesus förkastande av repudium (ensidig skillsmässa i polygama samhällen) i Markus 10 och Paulos i 1 Cor 7 var intressant!

Men Paulos säger faktiskt i 1 Cor 7:12-16 att skilsmässa inte är nödvändig om den maken har en annan religion/etnicitet; makarna helgar varandra och sina barn - vilket däremot var Esraismens uppfattning; se tvångsskilsmässorna i Esra 10.

Det finns oxå en sedelärande historia om Abraham och Sara i 1 Mose 12:10ff och 20:1ff.

Samma story finns dessutom i ytterligare en variant med Isaac och Rebecka i 1 Mose 26:1ff ;=)

Nej, Göran, "Salmon" är faktiskt rätt, fast i den svenska bibeln heter han Salma. Han fick en son med Rahav och blev anfader till Jesus (Matt 1:4-5).

Anonym, jag bloggar inte bara om homosexualitet, utan aven om angransande och tangerande amnen. Aktenskapsinlagget motiveras av att de som argumenterar mot homosaktenskap ofta gor det utifran antagandet att aktenskapet ar en historisk konstant. Inlagget ifragasatter detta argument.

och med detta vill du säga vad? Att Bibeln är fylld med helt vanliga människor som ständigt bryter mot Guds vilja är väll inte nån direkt nyhet. De Bibliska personernas sexuella förehavanden har i kristenheten aldrig ansets vara någon modell för Guds vilja eller hur man ska leva.
