Unformatted text preview: It is all up to you my brother. Even in the bible it states that people are better off not marrying because then they can focus on God more and do more for him. However, it also says that if you are having a hard time trying to stay sexually pure that you should marry. Better to marry then to burn with lust.(1 Corinthians 7:9) If you marry then your focus is more on your spouse and pleasing him or her. If you are a believer, it says not to engage in fornication as well..and fornication is sexual immorality..which is basically saying that you should not have premarital sex(1 Corinthians 10:8). So if you can abstain from sex, go ahead and stay pure...work for the Lord, if not...it is ok to get married. Also...I do not know if this applies to you...but if you plan to be are involved in any missionary work...it is better to marry because your spouse will help you through it all, and keep you in prayer....
