When God called me to testify to His Word, and I read Paul, I considered the unchristian and dangerous estate in which I had been, in view of the pomp, pride, usury, and great fornication of the monks and priests. I therefore obeyed and took a wife according to the command of God. Paul was prophesying well on the subject to Timothy: “In the last days it shall come to pass that they will forbid marriage and food, which God has created that they might be enjoyed with thanksgiving.”
