not trying to be judgemental cause that is not how i am but it wouldnt be right to let him live with you that would be the same as saying here i am devil opening myself up for lust temptation and fornication the bible says abstain from the very appearance of evil you let him move in and it would be like saying it is okay to live together and not be married

Correction, Reverse situation:
If a "saved" man stayed with an unsaved woman, what would you honestly think?

While you may be sincere in wanting to help this person, but, you are sincerely wrong! You might see if you can find a married couple he can stay with or a man, but don't you set yourself up. The Bible states that you shouldn't let you good be evil spoken of.

Reverse the situation. Would you, as a "saved" Christian lady, stay with an unsaved man? I hope not! Things are not as complex as we think, once we take our personal feelings and emotions out of the way! Where's your men church leaders(hip)? Prov.6:27-28. Perilous Times! God Grant You His Wisdom and Strength In This Matter [Prov4:7-9]. Maranatha!

I think that this could depend on the ages that you both are. If you are middle aged or more and he is quite young there should be no problem. People would see it as a landlady/lodger situation. If you are close in age that is when people's minds will go into overdrive I'm afraid. I agree basically with what everyone else has said but I think it is sad that you are put in a situation where you want to help but feel it would not be appropriate to do so because of what others might think or suggest.

This would not be a wise move. I STRONGLY recommend you find some other way to help him,like making an anonymous monetary gift through the church to pay for a "food basket" or a gift certificate to Wal-Mart!

I think that you should not let a man move in with you. The bible speaks of not letting your good be evil spoken of.Your good intentions could be used against you. You will be given the enemy too much room to work.

Call your pastor, or an elder in your church. Look in the phone book for a homeless shelter. I would advise against taking him in. There are other options. Pray and ask the Lord to open up a door for him to be able to stay somewhere else.

I believe it is setting yourself up with the enemy. Living with a man who is not your husband, whether a believer or not is wrong.
Do not put yourself in a position like this.
You may help the man but do not let him live with you.

Wow. I really think that you asking the question that way means you have thought about it and already know the answer! There are places to help him. Churches will find a family to take him in.. or send him to the local mission for homeless.

Please ask the Lord for wisdom in how to deal with this situation.Then ask yourself is there peace about the man moving in or is it an obligation because your christian.

It depends on whether we are talking lover or lodger. People will gossip whichever, so that might influence your decision but if you mean to have a sexual relationship with him it's wrong whether he's a Christian or not. I'm not sure what you mean by 'standing in the gap for'. Could you explain that?
---Xanthi on 7/8/05|
The Bible is very clear about your question! Read 2 Cor. 6: 14! Of course he has to know, where you are standing by your testimony! If he doesn't accept Jesus as his saviour, than he shall not be the man for sharing your life with.
