According to Jesus and Paul it is the BEST thing you can do so you can give your complete ATTENTION to God.

Matthew 19:12 and 1 Cor 7

It is probably the smartest thing you will ever do to live alone and not ever marry. Tesla took this one step further and devoted himself to his work. There is a 144,000 in Revelation who also denied themselves earthly marriage.

"Is it wrong to live life alone and never get married?"

Old blog, nevertheless,
The response "There is no NT scripture to indicate either choice is right or worng." Might be refuted, however, scripture that tells it is better to marry than to burn (1 Cor 7:9) as well as it is better for a man not to marry (Matt 19:10) are situational, according to ones circumstances, understanding and calling.

I have no choice. Women aren't interested in me. Nothing I do works to attract them. I know God will reward me for living a good life. I tried to get married and failed. Oh well.

It is not wrong to be Single as a follower of GOD. the Book of First Corinthians, Chapter 7 has a special Bible Verse for Married Men: Verse 33. Single Men: Verse 32. One for Married Women and Single Women: Verse 34. GOD Blesses Singleness as well as Marriage. GOD put the desire to mate into MOST men and women. Most men and women could hardly imagine being without an intimate spouse, sooner or later. It's GOD's natural Blessing. But, GOD does enable a relatively few in His Church to be A-OK with Singleness. It's the world's influence of ROMANCE, ROMANCE, ROMANCE that makes GOD's single sheep feel like "losers". In Heaven, ALL of the saints will be single. YAHUSHUA (JESUS) will be our Beloved.

No, it is not wrong to live alone. Paul says it is good to remain unmarried, that way life can be devoted to the service of the Lord.

jamea5375 , No, it isn't. Many Christian's are better off living alone, Some live alone because they had committed adultery in the past, their spouse left them for good and thus they are not permitted in God's Eye's to re-marry, some live alone because it's part of God's plan for their life, other's because they love solitude. Marriage can occupy one's life significantly, I believe that some children of God are not meant to marry or have kids. God Bless!

jamea, I have been married and I am now divorced, divorce is Seriously, I LOVE being alone. I spend so much time with God, worshipping the lover of my soul, and studying His word. His joy can indeed become your strength. Fall in love with Jesus and you will never be alone. There's Joy in the presence of the Lord and at thy right hand there are pleasures forever more. Jesus said he was never alone, that the Father was always with Him. Same goes for you too.

**Also, dying alone is an experience that I've seen several go through that I wouldn't suggest any to do if possible.**

If you have seen someone die alone, obviously that person was NOT alone when s/he died.

Donna::In the Catholic Church & in the eyes of God this would be commendable beyond measure.A lily grows up straight & slender& fills the house with Fragrance& resembles the angels,& are pleasing to God."He/She that loveth cleanness of heart shall have the king For His friend" Provxxii:11--Cantiv.V6-8--wisd.iv:1 Those who lead a chaste life posses the grace of the Holy Spirit in abundant measure.

"Selfishly unwilling to share life and belongings"? Marriage is not "sharing". Marriage is taking everything you own, present and future earnings, not to mention your heart and emotions, and signing it all over to somebody else. Then the odds are 50-60% that your spouse will someday attempt to take it all from you, leaving you with a small percentage and perhaps child visitation every other weekend. With those odds, gambling it all does not seem to be good stewardship.

Because most guys only see the outside appearance, I have never had a boyfriend, much less a husband, and I'm 40 years old. Does that make me wrong for not being married? I don't think so.
---Donna on 1/1/07

It depends on the reason. If it's because of your dedication to the work of the Lord then it's ok. If it's because a person is selfishly unwilling to share their life and belongings with others then I don't agree. The Bible is clear that a wife and children are blessings from the Lord. Also, dying alone is an experience that I've seen several go through that I wouldn't suggest any to do if possible.

Some people have a gift of singlehood and a calling to remain single and serve God as such. That does not mean therefore that you MUST remain single in order to serve God properly and fully. This is exemplified by those who need a helper in their ministry and therefore need a partner.
---pkay on 1/1/07

You mean like Jesus or the Apostle Paul or the Apostle John who never got married?
---Jack on 1/1/07

There is no NT scripture to indicate either choice is right or worng. In my case, the mission-educational-medical work my wife and I did for 33 years would not have been possible as single people. But, I've seen single missionaries be very succesful in thier life as single persons. It really depends on what God wants. To give you an answer, 'no' it is not wrong never to get married.
