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

He was considered among false teachers along with Martin Sheridan. My spiritual journey started when I about 28 or so. I was saved and baptized in a Baptist Church.  So started at Baptist, migrated to charismatic/pentecostal where I met my husband. Left church for a while when I discovered Martin Zender and his teachings that we are under Grace and not Law. Paul was sent to preach to the uncircumcised and not to the circumcised (the Jews).  Return back to church for my husband but my heart and mind is not there. Now doing Bible study with Dan Sheridan via his website. Still working on knowing/learning God's truths.  Spent about 4 hours on your website reading through many "articles" (for lack of better word).  It seems that Mr Victor sees that he has true grasp of God's Word as do Dan, Martin and others. It's ...

From: Jared To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, April 06, 2016 3:37 PM Subject: Questions  Hey y'all, I stumbled upon yalls page by searching for a certain minister. After reading what you think of him and his ministry, and browsing through your website a bit, I have to say I'm confused.  Let me ask y'all some questions in hopes to get a response: 1st- What is your stance on spiritual gifting? 2nd-Would you call yourself religious scholars? If so why? 3rd- What is the cross and why do you hit the Gospel of the Cross so much instead the Gospel of Jesus? 4th- Why do you choose intellect and religion over relationship? 5th- Why do you preach against the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit the God head 3 in 1? 6th- Where do you get your doctrine from? 7th-Why do you twist words of others and use scripture out of context to prove a point? 8th- Why respond to things in hate (meaning sarcasm and mockery) and judgement? Thanks Guys and I hope to hear from y'all soon. May God Smile upon you today.

The Great Peace of the Wise
From: Benjamin To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, January 27, 2016 10:51 AM Subject: God bless you  I sure hope you have a good day today, because it looks from your website like you've been having a lot of bad days. Do you live day to day just angry all the time? Jesus said, "Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest." You look like you could use some rest. If you live in anger and frustration all the time, you're letting this world steal away your joy. That's one of the fruits of the Spirit, you know. So are gentleness and peace.  Good bless you and have a wonderful day!  From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Benjamin Sent: Monday, February 01, 2016 7:29 AM Subject: Re: God bless you  Bless the Lord, Benjamin, we don’t live in anger and frustration all or even most of the time. That’s your assumption based on disagreement with the truth the Lord has given us that exposes liars, cheats, and the willfully deluded.  You have no idea what our lives are like, do you? You also speak in total ignorance of the record of the Scriptures regarding what the lives of His servants are like: 2 Corinthians 6:3-10 MKJV (3)  We are in nothing giving cause of stumbling, in no way, so that the ministry may not be blamed, (4)  but in everything commending ourselves as God's servants, in much patience, in troubles, in emergencies, in distresses, (5)  in stripes, in imprisonments, in riots, in labors, in watchings, in fastings; (6)  i...
