What I am sharing with you is the fruit of my experiences, some of which has been very bitter. Tragically, countless thousands of good-living members of wonderful churches know all about Christian terminology and lifestyle and seem so indistinguishable from born again Christians that they have even convinced themselves, and yet the spiritual miracle of new birth has not yet happened in their own lives. So were the Pharisees those religious leaders of Christs day who kept the letter of the law, but it turned out they only knew how to show love their mistaken interpretation of the law. But were finding it hard to contain our sexual urges. (This carries great dangers because many men during this time fool their wives to be into thinking they are Christians.
Marriage is the second most important decision anyone ever makes. This matter is so vital that I urge you before reading further to bookmark this webpage and go straight to The Ultimate Love Affair. As we have seen, many well-meaning, good-living church members are deluded about their own personal standing with God. Who would have thought that these clean living, respectable people would end up cruelly treating Christians? Any conversion is suspect whenever love for a woman is a factor.) If he does not change prior to marriage, he is most unlikely to do so later. So that two can be joined together to work in harmony.
The handsome face twisted into rage and the man shouted, “It’s the Jesus thing, isn’t it. “When did I let my faith in God become a negotiable?
I don’t and will never believe in your God.”The noisy restaurant stilled as he tossed the ring on the ground and stormed out, leaving me in a puddle of tears. ”And suddenly it became very clear; this was my rescue from entering an unhealthy marriage.
Having decided we are going to spend Eternity with Jesus, we need to be VERY selective about with whom we choose to share our earthly life. In Genesis God Himself said: Your own wish list may include factors such as tall, good-looking, own home and car, secure job, similar cultural background, non-drinker/smoker/gambler, kind to animals, sense of humor etc. Because they were christened or confirmed at a certain age, or walked down the aisle and signed a decision card, that doesnt necessarily mean that they have understood their need to repent of their own sin and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. So why does God feel so strongly about this matter? Many Christian women who think about getting married to someone who doesnt have a place for Jesus in their lives, cant see the harm, if the man they love is morally upright. But I ended up paying a heavy price in personal loneliness, marital discord, and, worst of all, disruption to my own fellowship with God. For nearly forty years I was married to a person who made no place for God in his life, yet was a good-living person, and an upright citizen. As they say, love is blind, but marriage is an eye-opener.
May I suggest a couple of basic questions to consider? Someone like this would be a pretty good catch right? Our Heavenly Father feels very strongly about His children marrying anyone who doesnt belong to Him. And we were most certainly NOT in harmony with each other; nor were we often pulling together! But you see, He gave me free will the same as He has given you. Like the children of Israel of old, I ended up spending almost forty years in the wilderness. I now realize we actually discussed very little before we married.
Elisha Marie Levy provides some insights into what the Bible says about the matter.They think that because they disagree on the level of religious commitment, they will be unable to agree on anything else. Spirituality is an important part of marriage, but there are many other things that go into making up a vital marriage relationship.Remembering the full circle of marriage is a real challenge; it does not happen by accident.This scripture reminds us that we are temples of the living God therefore our relationship choices need to reflect a clear distinction and ‘separateness’ from anything that is not in line with God's will.
In 2 Corinthians verse 17 God commands us to 'come out from them and be separate' and 'He will be a Father to us and we will be His sons and daughters' (verse 18).When I first got saved, Christ, the Bible, the church, and spiritual aspects of life were the only things I thought about.
