It traveled over three bodies of water, three forms of baptism. Oh, yes, from Asia over into Europe; from Europe over into England; and from England over into the United States. And now, we’ve come right straight back again, and here we set this afternoon on the west coast, where the sin barrier of all the powers of darkness heaps in here. These movies and television casts, and men kissing women on there, and poisoning the minds of little girls…

What is it? It’s the male glands in a man’s lip and the female glands. When male and female glands comes together, it’s sex.Look on Hollywood; look at the little girls laying out here in the parks and the boys wallowing around over these girls, and things like that, and even singing in choirs. And these Elvis Presleys, and so forth, that we have today, it’s a disgrace to the name of America, to what our forefathers fought and bled and died for.

As long as they take that vow, they’re married.QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS_ JEFF.IN COD SUNDAY_ 64-0823E 1036-Q-313 313. Brother Branham, what is the meaning of a annulment? Are people free to marry or is this just another word for divorce? I would like some information on this. (Annulment = Cancellation, termination, dissolution, invalidation, withdrawal)
Sure they’re married. As long as they take that vow, they’re married. Just like a boy, if a boy promises a girl to marry her under good faith, he’s obligated to that girl. He’s just as good as married her. The only thing the law does is give you a–a bill of rights to live together to keep from being common-law husband and wife. But when a man tells a woman, “I will marry you, Honey; I will take you for my wife. Will you take…” he’s married. \
Your vow is sacred; that’s what marries you anyhow. There’s not any preacher can marry you, no magistrate, or nothing else; it’s your own vow to God and to this man. When you promise, you are married.

And notice, the same thing to a boy promising to marry a woman…Don’t you make your vow to anybody ‘less you mean to stick with it. Remember, there’s the Bible for it. Joseph promised to marry Mary. And God said that that was…Read the Old Testament laws on that. See?
