Please Explain This Hell and Church Thing To Me
My co-worker was talking the other day about how her daughter doesn’t want a wedding and would rather elope. My co-worker is devestated by this partly because she’ll miss the wedding but mostly because her daughter will not be married in a church. I actually had some balls for once and asked if she felt this meant her daughter was going to hell. She said yes.
At least now I know I can do whatever I want for the rest of my life, if I’m already going to hell because I was not married by in a church. Then again I was told when I was a teenager that because I didn’t believe Jesus was the messiah I was going to hell.
I think I’ve racked up enough points (including the living in sin as well) that I’ll get a pretty good seat down under which is good to know. Don’t worry, I can save you a seat. I know quite a few cool people I plan to see there, now that will be a party.
Anyway, what I really want to know is how this breaks down. Does getting married in a church make the whole living in sin null/void? Do you only need to get married in a church and all those other random Sundays aren’t necessary?
I’m pretty sure my co-worker doesn’t go to church unless there is a wedding or a funeral. Manly Man calls this kind of religion Cafeteria Catholics.
I learned some stuff about the whole Jesus/church/hell/sin thing over the years but I was never in the inner circle, can anyone shed some light?
