Seeing,Dating,Marriage……………what does it mean and to who?
Just recently a friend of mine began a relationship with a married man. Looking at relationships and love from a catholic societal point of view (seeing as how most of society’s laws and norms are based on this religion). Fully Understanding this I took a look at the bible, to see the words in print that make people form feelings guilt because of their natural biological urges. Not to my surprise I found nothing in the bible about being only ever with one person,in fact I found the opposite -1 Corinthians 13:7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part.
Now I’m sure like the church the text from the bible is purely based on interpretation,and so my unbiased interpretation begins….
The above script from the bible was not the only I read but I found it made my point quit well. It simply states what love is and what love is not! But it also has a bit (13:8) where it clearly states that because of people’s corruption of love using language,skills and knowledge it will simply not be what it should be. Love can very well be many, love is meant for all not to one. So does “cheating” on your spouse go against the bible? does having sex with a person who is not your spouse go against the church? Why does society’s views on what is normal and acceptable seem to be the only way? And finally why do people conform?
You see from a young age I was a LIBERAL THINKER and this drove everyone crazy! My mom still to this day tells me my way of thinking ” is not right” I laugh every time and simply respond by telling her that her way of thinking is predictable. She rolls her eyes! The questions about sexuality and individualism always baffle me,and I don’t think sexuality will ever be considered right, but what is wrong I guess will always be there.
Please take a look at the video I attached from DNews. they very cleverly and accurately explain the chemical reactions your brain and body go thew when you “fall in love” and to me anyway show who one can romantically love many!
