Can a church minister get married?

Answer 1
  • They can if their denomination allows - Catholic priests, for instance, are not permitted to marry, but most Protestant denominations do allow it.

Biblically it is ok to get married, not getting married doesn't make you any closer or farther from God.

Genesis 2:24 "Haven't you read, he replied, that at the beginning the Creator made them male and female, and said, For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh? "

Proverbs 19:14 - Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the LORD.

1 Corinthians 7:8-9 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, it is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn. (burn sexually; in other words if you can't control yourself sexually)

1 timothy 1:4 Nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculations rather than the stewardship from God that is by faith.

Actually Bible says that the minister should be husband of one wife. (1 Timothy 3:2 ). So the question actually should be whether those who are not married should be serving as ministers.

Answer 2
  • Orthodox priests are divided into two distinct groups, married clergymen, and monastic clergymen.
  • In the Orthodox Church a married man may be ordained to the priesthood. His marriage, however, must be the first for both him and his wife. He may not remarry and continue in his ministry even if his wife should die. If a single man is ordained, he must remain monastic to retain his service. A priest-monk is called a hieromonk.
  • Per Catholic religion sect; it may be pointed out that priests serve in the place of Christ and therefore, their ministry specially configures them to Christ. As is clear from Scripture, Christ was not married. By remaining celibate and devoting themselves to the service of the Church, priests more closely model, configure themselves to, and consecrate themselves to Christ.

Why are most swords shaped like a cross?

Actually, many swords are not shaped like a cross, but swords like scimitars and sabers are curved. As for straight swords, many are shaped like very elongated crosses. The hand-guard at the top, by the handle, is intended to keep your hand from sliding down the blade from sweat, injuring you, and it prevents the other man's blade from hitting your hand. The blade and handle make up the large part of the sword with the hand-guard near the handle end. The shape of a cross wasn't entirely intentional, it just happened to be the most convenient shape to mass-produce, while keeping the hands of the wielder safe.

Why was becket killed?

IF YOU MEAN THOMAS BECKET:

There were a couple of answers.

1. A first argument with King Henry the Second. Henry made Becket the Archbishop of Canterbury, hoping he would help him reform the church courts. But he did not. Instead, he made God his new master.

2. A second argument. Becket began to excommunicate (sack) all the monks who followed Henry in the Cathedral of their jobs. Once again, this made Henry furious, causing him to fly into a rage.

What is the difference between a basilica... a cathedral... an oratory and a church?

In the Roman Catholic Church, a basilica is a designation for an important church building. A basilica is designated by the pope to buildings that carry special spiritual, historical, and architectural significance. Once a basilica -- always a basilica. A basilica may or may not also be the cathedral of the diocese. This is the highest permanent designation for a church building. The word basilica derives from a style of church based on the old roman basilicas which were houses of Law.

A cathedral is a church which holds a bishop's throne (called cathedra). It means it is the central church of his diocese. A cathedral may or may not be a basilica. It is the home church for the bishop or archbishop of a Catholic diocese. A cathedral may not always be a cathedral, depending on the decisions of the bishop. Hierarchally, the cathedral is the most important church of a diocese. A church is a building in which the public sacrifice of the Mass takes place. An oratory is more like a chapel, which is a place where people celebrate private Masses. An oratory is a structure other than a parish church, set aside by Church authority for prayer and the celebration of Mass. Examples would be chapels in airports and colleges where all of the functions of a parish aren't required. Private chapels are permitted in Catholicism, but if Church authority had not sanctioned their particular creation, they are chapels, not oratories. All of these are churches in that they have a consecrated altar and are used for celebrating the Sacraments.

Why was Notre Dame Cathedral built?

Maurice de Sully, bishop of Paris, decided to build a new cathedral for the expanding population, dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Although construction started in 1163, it was not completed until roughly 80 years later in about 1240s. Built in an age of illiteracy, the cathedral retells the stories of the Bible in its portals, paintings, and stained glass.

It has over 4,999 gargoles and has priceless paintings.

What is a basilica?

The Latin word basilica (derived from Greek, Basiliké Stoà, Royal Stoa), was originally used to describe a Roman public building (as in Greece, mainly a tribunal), usually located in the forum of a Roman town. In Hellenistic cities, public basilicas appeared in the 2nd century BC. Basilicas were also used for religious purposes. The remains of a large subterranean Neopythagorean basilica, dating from the 1st century, were found near the Porta Maggiore in 1915; the stuccoes on the interior vaulting have survived, though their exact interpretation remains a matter for debate. The groundplan of Christian basilicas in the 4th century were similar to that of this Neopythagorean basilica, which had three naves, and an apse. After the Roman Empire became officially Christian, the term came by extension to specifically refer to a large and important church that has been given special ceremonial rites by the Pope. Thus the word retains two senses today, one architectural and the other ecclesiastical.
