Do We Now Have Bishops Who Do Not Consider "shacking" a sin???
Reader, the number of men and women shacking up is on the rise like never before. Accelerating the already progress of evil. I would like to mention beforehand that if the church ministers had taken the word of God at face value and cried out against sin in and out of season since the bible days men and women would not be living under the same roof unmarried fearing that they would die in the very act of fornication.
In the Black church, we know and speak of it as "shacking". We are taught that when you have a testimony of salvation than for you shacking becomes a sin.
However, there are a steady stream of men and women of all age groups who are choosing to live together first and put marriage on the back burner as if it is ok with God. Tell me what you think about this. Last night I watched a scope of a bishop who basically said that the Bible is silent and does not address shacking up. And, where the Bible is silent we should also be silent. He asked, where is "shacking up" condemned in the Bible and where does the Bible say that this is the same as the sin of fornication?
The Bible defines the act of marriage as "becoming one flesh". I'm pretty sure shacked up couples have become one flesh at least once during their cohabitation. What do you think?
