I’m doing some background reading and found an interesting quote in The Theological Dictionary of the New Testament (Ed. Kittel, Friedrich, 1974, vol. IX, p. 442) demonstrating yet another pagan practice the Church ‘Fathers’ incorporated in their justification for monogamy-only, namely widows refraining from remarriage “as a sacrifice for the dead husband.” See image below.
In fact, monogamy-only was a Greco-Roman practice that came straight out of their pagan system of worship as I will demonstrate in a soon coming video. The Church Fathers incorporated this pagan practice just like they incorporated Christmas, Easter, Sunday, and unclean foods, into their adulteration of Torah.
Tertullian, in the above image, is the guilty party, but nearly all of the Church Fathers need to be exposed for this error in addition to the more common (and, less triggering) Feasts, Shabbat and Kosher. But, because TRADITIONAL marriage is a more sacred cow than even Sunday or Christmas, Christian and Messianic preachers and teachers fear the estrogen mafia more than the Living Elohim!! Don’t count on the ‘big names’ to tell you the truth as they have egos to be stroked and fawning masses to keep pacified.
Dare to research the depths of marriage tradition and custom within Christendom. What does Scripture actually say?
