“There is No Marriage in Heaven” (Part 4 of 6)

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…

Jesus said there is no marriage in heaven. How do polygamy experts David Patrick & Anne Wilde deal with that scripture?
