I'm afraid you're really confused about the whole thing. It is a discipline, not a dogmatic teaching. The Church could decide next week that all priests can get married and it wouldn't be "wrong". It comes down to the issue of men and women who willingly sacrifice personal pleasure "for the kingdom of heaven."<quoted text>So did the RCC teach error for the first 1000 yrs? Which is biblical? It can not be both ways? Did the RCC screw up then or now?
Is personal sacrifice that unknown in protestant circles? I'm beginning to wonder.
