What about celibacy?

​Celibacy, in the religious context, is the means by which a man consecrates himself totally to God for the service of humanity.
 
Through celibacy a Christian sets aside the responsibilities and intimate relationships of family life in order to take on the responsibilities of serving the wider family of humanity.
 
Through a personal relationship with God in prayer, by the friendships and associations with married and single men and women, a celibate man grows in his love of humanity and becomes capable of serving God's people more effectively.
 
To be authentic, it must be inspired by a love for Jesus who is the man for others.
