Married or not married ....is that really the point of it all...I keep coming back to a comparative issue of divinity and salvation...
Was the man Jesus/AIII divine in a way that is fundamentally different than all other men before or since....and does it make sense that the only path to salvation is by accepting that model.
Two smart fellows have this to say...
"A man may imagine things that are false, but can only understand things that are true" Sir Isaac Newton (1)
"We wish to find the truth, no matter where it lies. But to find the truth we need imagination and skepticism both. We will not be afraid to speculate, but we will be careful to distinguish speculation from fact. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." Carl Sagan (2)
