Is it okay to be single?

Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do. But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion. 1 Corinthians 7:8-9
            Paul in 1 Corinthians said yes, it’s okay, in fact he says it’s better to stay unmarried.  However, sexual desire can ruin a person so that single person better have that part of their life under control.  Later Paul will make a case that staying single helps the person devote more of their life to God’s work.
