The verse is saying the children will be under the law of hearing of the gospel if one trust the word . Other wise mankind (children of men) can perish without the law as it is written . Some perish even under the hearing.

We preach, God does the teaching comforting and brining to our memory the things he has taught us..
Think refers to the fact that the saved spouse brings the Lord into the household with them, and can be a godly influence!

I have to ask just for the sake of talk of marriage in general about the following from the Bible:


1 Corinthians 7:14
For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.

How do you explain this Corinthians verse?

Many of these were new converts as such they had existing relationships with unbelievers. They are given this advice:

1 Cor 7:12-13 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away. 13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. (KJV)

Choosing as a believer to marry an unbeliever is an entirely different situation. God can bless it, but you must expect problems.

I am running brother, I didn’t know I can run so fast. I am grieving hard, but the Lord is worth it.

Now since you are taking good advice......as you run from this woman, watch closely as see if God places someone else right in front of you who will be the opposite of the woman you are running from.

Disobedience has a price tag and Obedience has a reward my brother.

When you get to heaven........ask Sampson how it worked out for him.

CONTEXT!

After Paul had come and preached the gospel to the people in Corinth, a husband would accept Christ but the wife did not and visa versa. So then, what were they to do......divorce or stay together or what?

Verse 14 then says if the unbeliever walks out of the marriage then the believer is free. That believer is then free to marry again.

Verse 15 then tells them that the goal of the wife //husband should try and win their spouce to Christ.

If the home is broken up the lost spouce is removed from the spiritual influence from the relationship. The children are in the samr place of spiritual influence from their parent if the home stays intact.

You see, as long as the unsaved person lives with the saved person the chance of that lost person getting saved from the influence of the saved person is 50%.

If the marriage breaks up and the lost person leaves that influence, his chance of being saved then actually falls to "0" %.

Better a chance than NO chance!

Ask Samson and Solomon about "playing around" with non saved women!
If Samson and Solomon where before Jesus did His miracles, Jesus who like God is the eternal miracle worker, then does that make any difference?

Thanks

Didn't Paul or was it Peter cast out a demon from a soothsaying lady in Ephesus? I recall.

The kind that come out by fasting and prayer the true fast (Isaiah 58)

It’s the gospel key that can lock or unlock the gates of hell. When mankind attributes the work of God’s hand (will) to that of mankind then the apostles cry out blasphemy. We serve the likeness of God who is not a man .God is Light. God is Love. God is Spirit.

Why make those sent with the power of God as gods in the likeness of men after the philosophies of man and not after the word of God face to face in the revealed knowledge? We serve one God as Master not a legion of gods in the likeness of mankind.

The gospel does the healing .His Word is Spirit and life. giving

Acts 14:7-12 And there they preached the gospel. And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb, who never had walked: The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked. And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker.

Think that ther clear plan of God would be that the saved only marry another saved, as the situation being addressed by Paul was what if after marriage, one party now gets saved while other still lost?

True, as the Lord revealed will was that the saved should only marry the fellow saved, while Paul was addressing as you stated what happened if now one of marriage find themselves saved and other still is lost?

I am aware of the rules of not discussing witchcraft, so I suppose we shouldn’t discuss that, but I have a dilemma, the woman I really like is a full on pagan wich and she works in that industry.

What do I do?

Thanks

Hello Peki;

We have been praying for you since your inquiry, which is very serious in your walk with Christ. The Scriptures are very clear with some anointing posts by our brothers and sisters at CFS, your home, community and church.

I hope the Lord is leading you to work it out. At the same time, we are here for you, brother.
