Amoris Laetitia 61: Jesus Restores and Fulfills God’s Plan

amoris laetitia memeParagraphs 61 through 66 come under the headline, “Jesus Restores and Fulfills God’s Plan.” We’ll be seeing a lot of Scripture quotes for the next several days, starting here:

61. Contrary to those who rejected marriage as evil, the New Testament teaches that “everything created by God is good and nothing is to be rejected” (1 Tim 4:4). Marriage is “a gift” from the Lord (1 Cor 7:7). At the same time, precisely because of this positive understanding, the New Testament strongly emphasizes the need to safeguard God’s gift: “Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled” (Heb 13:4). This divine gift includes sexuality: “Do not refuse one another” (1 Cor 7:5).

This is an easy one. Christians with a certain enthusiastic bent against marriage and sexuality are wrong.

For your reference, remember that Amoris Laetitia is online here.
