Celibacy, like the tree tion security doctrine a dogma that has developed within the Christian church.
"Jesus says that those who can acquire this [celibacy] should do it, for the kingdom of heaven's sake (Matthew 19: 12) But this was no unanimity rule and several of the apostles were married (Matt. 8: 14, 1 Cor. 9 : 5), in all cases from the beginning (Matte 19: 29). But partly because of an opinion of Paul, that singleness in certain circumstances is preferable (1 Cor. 7: 38), partly as a result of it through monasticism itself increasingly expansive view of asceticism välbehaglighet before God began to gradually within the church consider singleness as anything particularly remarkable. "
At Nicaea 325 when one tried to unite the Christian Doctrine of the Faith met, however the proposal on the celibacy of the clergy with great resistance and it was not until the eleventh century by Gregory the VII succeeded in enforcing "Celibacy as a whole to the Roman clergy applicable statutory." Anyone who was already married was simply divorce or abandon their posts. http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celibat
Today, researchers believe that the Catholic Church's celibacy requirement for priests really were not religiously motivated, but primarily about money. The Catholic Church simply did not pay maintenance for the deceased priest's wife. This meant that the priests instead took the concubines:
"In reality, the 1139 law did not enact celibacy but Merely changed marriage into concubinage. Rice quotes from a document on celibacy prepared by church historian Hubert Jedi for the Second Vatican Council: "It would be a mistake to Imagine That These permanent concubines, especially in the countryside, would have aroused a lot of scandal," said the Jedi. "We know of many cases where` These keepers of concubines' possessed the sympathies of Their parishioners and were looked upon as good and virtuous pastors. "No finer mind than Thomas Aquinas had provided stubborn opposition to Those Who Saw celibacy rulings as part of divine law. Thomas contended That the celibacy requirement for Catholic priests was Merely Church law thatcould be reversed by any time by papal or conciliar authority.

Even today raised voices against the obligation to remove celibatsplikten for priests on the grounds that it would cost the Catholic Church too much money. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/3406108/Catholic-Church-has-no-reason-to-stop-priests-from-marrying-says-leading-bishop.html In connection with the pedophile scandals that have flourished in the Catholic Church has more and more critical voices raised against Catholic priests pliktcelibat. http://www.svd.se/kultur/understrecket/celibatet-ar-inte-del-av-katolska-kyrkans-lara_4615551.svd
In the Catholic Church is a perception that Catholic priests are better pastor if they do not have a family, but instead can wholeheartedly devote themselves to their calling.
The Church of Jesus Christ is the opposite approach to the Catholic Church's views on celibacy. Because the Church of Jesus Christ does not take some of the teachings that emerged within Christianity, is not the view of celibacy as something better, or spiritual. The view that the meat was something sinful and sexuality immediately was seen as something dirty, were much an influence from non-Christian teachings and traditions Gnosticism. The Catholic Church's belief that Mary, Mother of Jesus, would have lived a celibate throughout his life divided not by the Church of Jesus Christ.
In Genesis, God calls Adam and Eve to multiply. The family was fundamental and that view is also in the Church of Jesus Christ. To qualify for the responsible ministries in the Church requires that one is married. A small congregation (branch) are allowed to have a community manager (branch president) who is unmarried, but a large assembly must have a parish superintendent (bishop) who is married. It is the parish superintendent acting parish pastor. Many who come to limit the president or bishop wants help and support to family conflicts. Therefore, a married man to have a better understanding of this type of problem.
Naturally, the office of pastor much time and effort on the part, but because the Church of Jesus Christ is a lekmannakyrka, the branch president or bishop relieved from his duties after a few years.
