I Feel I Made a Mistake Marrying, What Now?

Hi Paul, 

I just read your testimony!  I was wondering if God hardened the heart of your ex wife. I have done some research with divorce and I know that Corinthians 7:15 says “…but if the unbeliever leaves, let him go.  The believing brother or sister is not bound in such cases.  God has called you to live in peace.”  I was thinking that if God did harden her heart and left you, then this would be grounds for divorce. I wanted  contact you to see if you were willing to share this detail of your story, if she ended up leaving you or you left her to avoid compromising yourself.   

My husband “believes” in God and Jesus, but does not live a life like he truly believes. In my eyes, I do not consider him a “believer” because he has not laid down his life for Jesus.  There have been times I have felt disconnected from God because I felt he has made me compromise at times.  I am not happy with compromising at all.  We are separated because I do not know what to do and I do not want to compromise on living a Godly life. 

Similar to your story, I do feel that I have made a mistake with marrying him.  My husband wants to remain married regardless of our differences. God has showed MUCH grace after calling out to him in regards to this issue, but I am stuck on the do’s and dont’s of what the bible says. I feel that if my husband wants to stay married I should remain married because of 1 Corinthians 7:15.  

I look forward to your response!

 Thank you for your time!

 Kristin

Hi Kristin, 

In answer to your question – no, God didn’t harden the heart of my ex-wife because she never believed in the first place. I was in fornication marrying her and that was why I needed to leave her. In other words, I was in sin; we weren’t married in the eyes of God. 

My partner wanted to stay with me, but truly we both weren’t happy if we couldn’t be ourselves and pursue what God had for each of us. This was amply proven as we tried to keep things together for a short while. 

So I initiated and followed through on the separation, by God’s grace. 

Is your husband truly your husband, or did you do what I did – enter into and remain in fornication while trying to make it “kosher” by marrying? You need to know the answer to this question. 

The answer to your situation certainly isn’t trying to make your husband a Christian (I’m speaking of the true kind – not manmade). That’s not your call. If this man is your husband, you need to submit to him in the Lord, except not doing the things you know God directly forbids and doing whatever else God requires of you. 

Are you truly a convert to Christ by the power of faith in Him, Kristin, or are you a proselyte of men? I had been given the gift of supernatural faith in Christ, which if one receives and walks in it, will separate him or her from the world without the person having to try to make it happen, except when one goes astray as I did. Then obedience is necessary to remedy the situation.

Are you reading the teachings and materials on our site, which will direct you into the life-giving ways of the Lord by faith? Are you hearing Him here? 

Paul

A Green Party Advocate Exposed as a Liar
From: Victor Hafichuk To: Nathan Sent: Wednesday, December 03, 2008 12:47 PM Subject: A Curse on the Betrayal of Canada Stray curs gather. But the populace has spoken. No, they do not want any of these curs to be their guard dogs. So the curs go away, sullen and defeated - but not resigned. Now they gather together, their countenances suddenly changed, manifesting their true natures. They return, not seeking permission to serve as guards for the owners, but brazenly, as a pack with power in numbers to seize for themselves what they would still pretend to unselfishly guard. Cursed be they who, for personal gain, seize what is not theirs. Cursed be they who gather in the name of principle and virtue, but there only to take undue advantage. These are worse than unpretentious Somali pirates. Cursed be they who make unholy alliances, jumping into bed with any partner to please those not worth pleasing. Let them suffer the wrongs they seek to perpetrate. Let them be cursed of God, and let all people know that God reigns in Heaven against all ungodliness over the affairs of men. Let the pack be broken and scattered. May God grant wisdom and strength to those who would govern with discretion and honesty.

A Prince of Blasphemers

You give no substantiated proof for your false allegations and reputation degradation of Pastor Prince. He is a far better man and servant of God than your little mind portrays here.

And Peter asked: King James Bible “And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” (1 Peter 4:18). If the righteous is scarcely saved, as Peter declared, and if deception is so strong as to come dangerously close to deceiving the very elect of God, what do you think the chances are of YOU being deceived when you aren’t anywhere near the spiritual place, discernment, and power of the elect? Yet, you speak so confidently as though you are so right? See, you blaspheme against God, you’re contrary to the Scriptures along with a Prince of Blasphemers, and to those who are the elect. Shame on who? There’s more than shame coming your way and already arriving. Fo...
