Overseer's role Timothy 3,2-5

On marriage and priests

Even if this passage in the New Testament clearly states the importance for a clergy man of having a wife (only one) and a family with kids to raise, something must have been later misunderstood by the Catholic church, which later instituted the vow of celibacy for priests, probably to bring the church people closer to the ego games and the politics, and disconnect their hearts. It makes you think. How can a man of God understand Love if he hasn’t lived it? My granddad dropped out of seminary school and decided to set up a family with my granny, instead. I am glad he did, or you wouldn’t be reading this today.

From 1 Timothy 3,2-5
“Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?)”
