    If there is a god
    and if there was a Jesus Christ
    and if he was "the son of god"

    What difference does it make if he was married or not?

    Maybe nothing as long as he gets married sometime.

    Well, atheists would think this, because they don't buy into the whole thing about who Jesus is.

    I'll just ask you this: Why do YOU think it was so important to make sure that Jesus was born free from "original sin"?

    We don't. The whole concept of "original sin" is immoral and illogical.
    The idea that children can [and should be] punished for the 'sins'
    of their parents is morally repugnant.

    Also the idea that an infinite being of such immense power and intellect
    as you believe would care whether people have sex or with whom is
    totally ludicrous.

    The concept of original sin is total bs... so it's not important at all.

    Actually - was he? His mother was the child of sinners.

    Is this addressed to me?
    If it is - I don't.
    I don't think it important that Jesus was born free from "original".
    And I don't see what that has to do with him taking a wife or not.

    Joking aside I believe this is the problem; the possibility that Jesus may have descendants.

    There's my point.

    You can't see it because you do not believe.

    Right. You don't believe. We get it.

    You think it's all hogwash. We get it.

    Why do you bother posting here then, when the topic is Christian beliefs?

    One: Why do you ask, if you think it makes no difference?

    Two: You think it makes a difference, so it means something to you.

    Three: What is it about this (supposedly) iconic concept that so unnerves you that you feel compelled to find the nail which will prick the balloon?

    1. I have no position on the question but I am interested in the
    opinions of others and how they are formed.

    2. I think it makes a difference to some but not to me.

    3. I am only unnerved by your mixed metaphors not JC's marital status.

    4. Do you not have an alphanumeric keyboard?

    Don't have to believe in order to understand.

    I understand why the Virgin Birth is important. I don't understand why not all Christians believe in the Immaculate Conception. Surely Christ's marriage is on a par with the Immaculate Conception?

    Wolfgang,
    You and I don't have bible evidence that Christ was married to a human woman. So, we don't have to demand that Christ was married such.

    So here are some guesses. Christ Jesus who was God did not have any purpose for marrying. He came to die for mankind to be Savior of the world. He fulfilled the Law of God. And it seems that there may be one other thing that Jesus came to earth for, but I don't know it from memorization.

    One more thing, in all of the prophecies foretelling Christ and other things about Him, there is not one verse that tells He will be married. Although, here are some verses that tell why Christ came.

    King James Version
    =============
    John 6: 38
    For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

    John 12: 47
    And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

    John 18: 37
    Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

    Mark 2: 17
    When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

    Matthew 10: 34
    Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

    Wolfgang,
    Were you the one who asked me why Christ worked as a carpenter if His kingdom was not of this world, or was that someone else?
