It depends what you mean by relax, modern day relaxing can be sitting in front of worldy t.v.
Man can relax with his wife, an unmarried man can't.
Part of my question which i know little about of Bishops, was really the modern day relaxing and hobbies, such as t.v. video games, following sports teams, i don't know that Bishops do take part in these things.
If they did and was celebate then my question would be why not get married instead.
You seemed to answer that Bishops you know are too busy.
I don't know a lot about the Orthodox church, i'm trying to learn by asking question that come to me.
I hear some church leaders who are married religiously follow sport teams, maybe some who are celebate today.
The early church had not the worldy entertainment we have today, and what they did have i doubt they took part in.
How did the early church view something like the Olympic games?
I suppose some of my question is also linked to worldly entertainment.
Say if a Bishop, not that i'm saying they do, but say they spent a couple of hours a day in front of some worldy t.v. soup or drama or following some sport, or playing video games to fulfill their life.
A Bishop would have given up marriage, which can take up a lot of your life, to serve God, if they were fulfilling their life with these other things then why, i would think then they may as well marry.
I would see it more Godly and worthwhile to bring up a family than to waste part of their lives on these idle things.
It's all i was thinking really, but i seem to get the impression from you post that Bishops may be very busy with the church and have no time for these things.
