1 Corinthians 7
Back story! Continuing in 1 Corinthians the back story is that the reason for Paul writing the letter is to answer questions that this church had sent to Paul. Paul believed that Christ's return was eminent. Each of the their queries were answered in the light of this.
If you are single, stay single, Jesus is coming soon. Stay married, a slave, single, whatever station you find yourself in, changing now would make things harder in the coming age. However, Paul does say if freedom for a slave is available don't pass it up.
