I’m still trying to channel my inner-evangelical as we continue our conversation with David Patrick, an apostle of Christ’s Church, and polygamy expert Anne Wilde. In 1 Corinthians it says it is better to marry than to burn, and Jesus says there is no marriage in heaven. How do they handle those scriptures?
GT: Paul says you should remain celibate even as I am. But if you can’t contain, okay, go ahead and get married. You know, because it’s better to marry than to burn. I mean, that doesn’t sound like a ringing endorsement of marriage.
David: Well, Paul was married.
Anne: Yeah, I was just gonna say that.
David: Yeah. And so, that’s the only that’s the only real scripture that they can hang on to call for celibacy, I guess.
It should be noted that Christ’s Church has a temple in southern Utah, and they do proxy temple work for their kindred dead, just like LDS do. Check out our conversation…
