Perverted Self Love

People are now loving themselves, instead of sharing the love. As emphatically expressed in the bible, end times.
The reasons given no doubt sounds logically correct, it is just biblically wrong. She claimed it is “logically sound too”, but we have to always go back to the word of God to determins the truth. Check out the latest happening I read from the news.

The “one flesh” theme is always quoted and encouraged in the bible. If we consider “one flesh”, it means many things literally, but all leading to ONE. It is frequently used for marriage, where two become one. Whether you like it or not, it’s one. In sickness or in health? It’s oneness. Any decision making? Oneness. If one suffers, another suffers as one. If one enjoys, the other enjoy… ONE. So it literally means too that if you love your wife, you love yourself… ONE! If you deprive your wife, or husband, you deprive yourself!

Genesis 2:24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
Mark 10:9 Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
Matthew 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
2 Timothy 3:1-2…This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves….

Woman marries herself

IT HAD all the elements of a wedding – the bride, white dress, diamond ring, guests, seating arrangements, professional photographer – the only thing missing was the groom, and not by accident.

On Nov 16, 30-year-old office worker Chen Wei-yih married the love of her life – herself.

The Taipei City-based woman, who is no longer single by her own admission, wanted to show other ladies who have hit their thirties without a manifested prince charming that they are not failures.

‘You must learn to love yourself before you can love others,’ said Ms Chen, who also plans to embark on a solo honeymoon to Australia after she quits her job as a study-abroad coordinator to the land Down Under.

Self-help platitudes aside, Ms Chen explained that when a woman in Taiwan enters her thirties, getting married and having children becomes the main focal point among concerned family, relatives and friends, making a single, independent woman feel like a failure if she has none of those things.

Ms Chen explained that although many people freely express their love for others through flowers, chocolates and expensive dinners, they are less inclined to pamper and shower the same love on themselves. By the same token, expressing your love for a man through marriage and a huge wedding banquet should be something you’re willing to do for yourself. Self-marriage seemed like the logical solution, she concluded. — CHINA POST/ANN
