Paul's View On Parousia

Satisfactory Essays
Paul firmly believes that the parousia is near. It seems that the reason he does not want people to marry is because there might be a potential of one to be taken to Heaven while the other stays on Earth, it may also cause the person to stumble to sin if they are married. Paul is not saying that if you marry that you are going to hell he is just trying to give these people a fair warning of what he thinks is about to occur. We know today however that the event did not happend and has not happend for another two thousand years. Paul's biggest concern was sexual immorality and that is why he wanted people to stay single but if they could not control themselves then it would be better for them to have sexual relations with their spouse instead
