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

Undoing a Lifetime of False Teachings
From: Amanda To: The Path of Truth Sent: Monday, December 05, 2016 4:56 PM Subject: I have some questions that I would like to ask... Hello!  I have been reading your links for the past couple of days. Everything you all have been saying is conformation to what I believe the true God/Jesus has been showing me.  About six months ago I had been sensing so much darkness & lies in the government, news, even in the church. (Well it goes back even years...)  So I started praying that God would show the truth & reveal the lies & tactics of the enemy.  About a month after that, one morning I was praying & I heard to go to chapter & verse of where John was preaching repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.  So I asked God what was He asking me to repent of.  Then right after that prayer I heard to go to chapter & verse in  Isaiah where they had the idol in the temple & God kept pushing it over until it was finally demolished. Not long after this, little did I know He was going to show me that the very sect of the church that I had been acquainted with was a part of this great deception. (Or had been my idols & had been teaching pagan idol worship) I was listening to a minister one day & he mentioned that Rick Joyner had asked him to be a part of a secret group. Immediately I inquired to find out what group. Well that lead to many other ministers that I would find out that have all been connected together in this diabolica...
The Law and What Church to Attend
From: Chris To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, October 25, 2016 2:23 AM Subject: Law n Grace Hello I stumbled out into your website Thank you for it. My name is Chris I am in England, I am a recovered alcoholic by His Grace. I'm due to marry a wonderfull girl who to God has brought into the light of life. I'm confused between all this law and grace teaching, in the sense of which way to go ? We both done the 12 steps off AA a couple of years ago. Now I know there is error there. God opened my eyes. But ever since Christ removed the sin in our life and cleared us out. We have been trying to be settled in a church. We have attended a Sabbath congregation ? But they kept law and feasts. But you will have to correct me here if needs be.... Didn't Hebrews say the old has gone ? Also didn't yeshua nail all the ordinances to the cross ?? Our heads are up the wall with this. Sunday church just doesn't preach truth at all. It's disheartning to us that we can't find a church that preaches bible. God give me the harlot in proverbs about church. But we just want to do right in His eyes Godbless and plz respond to this At wits end From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Chris Sent: Sunday, October 30, 2016 7:49 AM Subject: Re: Law n Grace Hi Chris, Good to hear about how the Lord helped you stop drinking.  Regarding your questions about law and grace, have you red our article, Law and Grace?
