There is an assumption that celibacy is an unusual or abnormal life. On the other hand, celibacy is made an absolute requirement for an ordained priest in the Catholic church. The Bible upholds marriage, but it also teaches about the gift of celibacy (1 Cor. 7:7). This article aims to explain celibacy as a gift from God based on the study of the exposition of 1 Corinthians 7:7 and the theological implications for the lives of believers. For this reason, the author uses a qualitative method with a literature study approach. This article concludes that celibacy is a special gift from God for certain people. Finally, the implications of celibacy as a gift from God are that celibacy is not a curse or a disgrace, celibacy is not a matter of being more spiritual (holy) or not, and celibacy is not an absolute requirement to be a servant of God.</em></p> Yosua Sibarani Copyright (c) 2022 Thu, 10 Nov 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Larangan Minum Minuman Keras bagi Imam Berdasarkan Imamat 10:8-11 dan Implementasinya bagi Gembala Jemaat <p><strong>Abstract</strong></p> <p><em>The purpose of writing this article is to provide an understanding to the church pastor about the prohibition of drinking alcohol as viewed from Leviticus 10: 8-11. Liquor (alcoholic drink) is often a matter of debate because on the other hand there are some who think that liquor is something that can increase the excitement of appearing, but if it is examined further, many negative things arise from consuming liquor. This is triggered because liquor contains alcohol which can be intoxicating. This study uses a qualitative descriptive method by analyzing the phenomena that occur, and utilizing various literatures such as books and journals. This research shows that there is a prohibition for the Imam to drink liquor because alcohol contains alcohol which can have a negative impact. In addition, as priests who are representatives of the people in offering sacrifices, they are required to be holy so they can enter the temple and can carry out their duties responsibly. To maintain this holiness in the book of Leviticus 10: 8-11 expressly prohibits priests from drinking alcoholic beverages. . Seeing this reality, if it is related to church leaders today, namely the Shepherd, it is fitting to maintain holiness, especially when leading worship. The pastor of the church is expected to be able to avoid alcoholic beverages such as those contained in the book of Leviticus.</em></p> Alferdi Alferdi, Yulita Arruan, Resvin Tapparan, Karisma Nari Copyright (c) 2022 Thu, 10 Nov 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Kesalehan Kontroversial Keagamaan Menurut Matius 23 <p><em>Changes in social behavior and the increasing presence of church youth in the social media space are certainly a challenge for the church.

Premarital sex is a form of violation of God's decree. This study aims to determine how much influence premarital sex behavior on harmony in the family at GBT Christ Alfa Omega Semarang. To answer the research objectives, the researcher used correlational quantitative research by taking a sample of 35 people who had attended premarital counseling and were married.

The research method used is library research to find data related to complaints and also faith, specifically data regarding the story of Job's complaints in the third chapter of the book of Job. From the research conducted, it is found that the complaints expressed by Job show Job's understanding of his humanity, which means that Job is an ordinary human being who is the same as humans in general. Therefore, as an ordinary human being, complaining about the regret of the day of birth, expecting death at birth and despairing to the point of wanting death are complaints that are closely related to the lack of faith. In this case, when a believer experiences suffering that is so severe that it suppresses his mind, emotions and even his physical health, it can erode his faith in God.</p> <p><strong>Keywords:</strong> <em>Job, Old Testament Theology, Faith, Complaint, Suffering</em></p> Pardomuan Marbun, Charisma Melniatri Copyright (c) 2022 Thu, 10 Nov 2022 00:00:00 +0000
