Celibacy in the Injeel?

The allegation of the anti Ahmadi Muslims is that Ahmadas claimed that the Injeel preached celibacy. They further say that according to the Qur’an Isaas did not prescribe it. This is also a foolish allegation as the Injeel does preach celibacy but this does not suggest that it was Isaas who started this teaching as the Injeel is continuously changing and not everything in the physical book is from Isaas. The way this allegation would be answered would be through the Scripture itself. We will provide statements from the Bible to show that it does indeed preach celibacy:

 

I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs—how he can please the Lord. (1 Corinthians 7:32)

 

Now for the matters you wrote about: “It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman. (1 Corinthians 7)

 

These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they remained virgins. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among mankind and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb.(Revelation 14:4)

 

 The disciples said to him, “If this is the situation between a husband and wife, it is better not to marry.” Jesus replied, “Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given. For there are eunuchs who were born that way, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by others—and there are those who choose to live like eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.”(Mathew 19:10-12)
