Psalm 63:1-4 Psalm 9:10 What you call God often reveals how well you know Him. I know how she feels about me and thats more then enough. She says she would worry about the souls of our children. Well, his Christian God a God I don't believe in. Your near fiancee testifies of God. I was wondering if anyone had some advice on how to talk to her parents or some advice on what to do with the situation? I feel like that's what I am up against. When it comes to choosing a marriage partner, people often react simply on the basis of emotions.
He does say, however, that we are entitled to some deal-breakers -- we just have to know what they are. One way we can apply this to our lives today is that we should not marry and therefore we should not date or long to date someone who is not wholeheartedly pursuing and delighting in God. These are just some of my thoughts on how a couple may respond to 2 Corinthians 6:14. I asked her if she knew that the Bible also speaks of a non-believer being made right unto God through marriage with a christian, and she did not know about this. That evening I called her and she was not talking to me.
In the end I am glad to have been with her for the short time I was. Sufficient it to say, though, is that such an aim isn't possible. Love and prayers to all and keep praying for that Atheist wife or husband that God will reveal Himself to them. No one comes to the Father except through me. I challenged her with the saying that one should not be unequally yoked with a non-christian because I wanted to see what she would say about it. I lived with a nonreligious person who had been raised Catholic, who waffled on and off about whether he was atheist, agnostic, etc. I found your blog, which is very interesting.
Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; He is the faithful God, keeping His covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep His commandments. My past boyfriends have been atheists or, like me, vaguely spiritual, but without subscribing to any organized religion. I'm always pointing out where I see religion doing bad or being contradictive and she always tells me how tired she is of hearing it. Christianity today is not a religion but a selective organization whose sole purpose is to collect contributions. If I had been given an hour this is what I would have shared. I would like to discuss our views but fear it becoming confrontational. My first child was born a month ago, and in November, she'll be baptised at the church.
The issue within myself being a christian, and he an atheist is always an issue. Until the time her parents found out we were together her parents were always extremely nice to me and treated me very well. Kevin, I would be very interested to know how the two of you dealt together with 2 Corinthians 6:14. You seem like a very reasonable and well intentioned person. But sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and do the hard thing. So really your not going to be marrying a person of a true faith in God, but one who has merely followed some steps of a tradition and considers herself to be a Christian when in reality she really doesn't have a real relationship with Jesus the Savior of the world.
Though I can understand some of what her parents are thinking from it, the relationship I'm in now is leading to marriage and I wouldn't have it go anywhere else. We treat each other as equals and respect each other's beliefs or lack thereof. You seem to be an honest, decent person. We believe that marriage and family are good, positive, and beneficial in and of themselves. She knew my views before we got married but not a great deal of time was spent on the topic.
Well the Bible is clear that Christians should marry other Christians for this exact reason. What I'm really interested in knowing, which I think I've made evident by my constant reiteration int he past few sentences, is if you are able to look at this relationship through their eyes and see why they would seem to in some way violate this sense of respect and dignity every person deserves. I got tired of all the fake Christians and then judging me when I messed up. When two people are operating on the basis of two different worldviews, they can't help but approach those problems and decisions from two very different angles. We didn't start dating till I was 23 and we waited a while before announcing a relationship to make sure we didn't end up hurting our friendship. You could, however, be friends or just date casually because you enjoy each other's company. I told her I loved her and wanted to make a serious go at our relationship.
A voice inside me says a similar worldview is important, but it's not like my guy doesn't also wish for a humane world. Not only did I agree to marry Cori, but she also decided to take a chance on me, knowing full well that I had lost my faith. But like many women, I always knew I had some things I needed to do on my own before I even considered crossing the altar with someone travel the world, kiss a girl, learn a romance language , but I never thought I'd be at the point where I'd have to actively look for love the way I have been over the last few years. I have been to some church functions when I'm supporting her singing or when she's escorting a group of kids to some event. I assumme you have thought carefully about the major questions of life how we came to be here; why are we here; where we are heading and have come to accept the atheist view. This was the moment the penny dropped for me - all those posts warning couples about how hard it would be have a relationship with such starkly contrasting beliefs.
