I recieve lots of critism from protestants who insist priests have no buisness resolving marital issues since they are unmarried. This article aims at explaining certain facts
WHAT QUALIFIES ONE TO TEACH?
knowledge qualifies one to teach Not neccesarily marital experience.a 35 year old boy can be a profesor as long as it is proven he is knowledgeable in that field..
MUST KNOWLEDGE ARISE OUT OF PERSONAL EXPERIENCE?
no. A wise man must not commit a mistake to learn. He learns from others experience.
Having made the clarification? Let me go further to explain this
ARE PRIESTS KNOWLEDGEABLE
yes. Priests didnt fall from sky.they have family.they learn from their parents. Secondly, priests are trained. They undergo theoritical training on family issues. They are lectured on marriage counsellin by married parents with over 20 years marital experience..in some cases,priest are made to live with families.
