Singleness

Jesus died a single man. Paul encouraged his Corinthian readers to “stay unmarried, as I do.” For centuries of church history, monastic Christians understood celibacy as core to the life of holiness. And in the 21st century—when demographic shifts in the 21st century have upended the cultural script of marriage and family as a given—many young Christians are either choosing singleness as a testament of faith, or learning to live faithfully within it despite their desire to marry.
