Q. Is there any indication in the Bible that says it’s better for Christ not to get married?
A. No. But it would not be fitting for God the Son to marry a human creature.
Q.Is marriage an obstacle that prevents us from worshiping or serving God as it should be?
Q. Why was Peter who is considered a high figure in Christianity married!!!?
A. Jesus called Peter and Peter had been married. But his wife seems to have died since we never hear of her.
Q. And no one can say that Peter’s marriage prevents him from being a good servant of God.
Q. If the real Christ(ian) is the one who serves and devotes all his life to worship God, and all Christians are supposed to do this, and since marriage in a way or another is an obstacle, so what would happen if all people wants to be real Christians (servants of God who devote their whole lives to God) I think that life will stop and we all will die, and hence will be no one to serve God?
A. The Catholic Church does not teach that the unmarried are the only ones who can fully serve God. Marriage is NOT an obstacle to serving God.
We have two possible vocations. Celibacy or marriage.If everyone chose celibacy in the same generation it would not end life at all. It would end reproduction and eventually all humans would be dead. This is not a problem but IF it happened it would be the end of this era and the final judgement would be at hand. But many will always be serving God in Eternity. So it is not the end of people serving God.
Q. Don’t you think that a real servant is the one who can meet his God’s recommendations and orders?
Q.Does being a good servant always mean harming yourself and preventing yourself from life’s joy?
A. Not at all. It is wrong to harm outselves.
Q. Isn’t it good to marry and have children, so that you can teach them good things that God likes?
Q. IF God’s servants don’t marry, who will marry then, bad people?
A. If all of God’s servants did not marry then only the ungodly would marry. But marriage is a beautiful vocation dignified by Jesus at the wedding at Cana.
I have tried to answer all of your questions but they all seem to be based on erroneous assumptions about what the Catholic Church teaches. If you have more questions check in the Catechism (http://www.scborromeo.org/ccc/ccc_toc.htm) to see if the Church even teaches what you might have been told or think about the Catholic Church.
