I understand that, but it doesn't mean we need to avoid human intimacy or that of being close to someone.
There is nothing special about being single, nor does either prevent someone from walking in the Spirit.

The Shakers practiced total celibacy--even for married couples. The furniture they made is top-notch and lasts forever. But where are they now?

Again, there is a higher way in Him, instead of doing what seems right in our own eyes. He has to reveal it to you....Blessings...

If Jews practiced celebs you then we would be breaking the commandment of G-d to be fruitful and multiply...

PICYJAG.

It is good for a man not to touch a woman.

You all are assuming I mean forever, which granted some do. However, what I'm talking about is HIM bringing covenant, not "us" going out and doing it through the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life. Blessings...
