This Man Made My List

I want to marry a non-christian. Three years ago I prayed for a husband. I made a three Page list of the things I wanted in a husband. I prayed on it and so did my mum. I longed to meet my best friend and husband. I finally met him last year but turned out to be a non Christian. So now I have to brake up with him right?

Moderator - The first item on your list should have been for a Christian man, therefore you might want to start fresh with a new list based upon God's principles.

The only thing on your list has to be, G-d I want the man You want for me. G-d knows our needs and desires. Our hopes, dreams, and aspirations, are ever before our Father. G-d's thoughts towards us are for Good, Peace, and Love. When we submit to His will, plan and purpose for our life, He becomes responsible to meet our needs. If we could choose the right one and know without a doubt who the "right one is" it would have already happened.G-d does not make mistakes, and He knows what we need before we even ask, stand strong in the Faith of J-sus and believe in His will for your life.

I see you believe in the power of pray.

For you say.
I finally met him last year but turned out to be a non Christian.
Believing youre pray was answered.

You pray and receive and then doubt.
Either make the tree good, and his fruit good, or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

And he said unto them, Where is your faith? And they being afraid wondered, saying one to another, What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.

If you are truly a Christian and you truly love the Lord God Allmighty with all of your heart and soul, then you should NOT marry a non-Christian. The bible says, "DO NOT BE unequally yoked together with unbelievers, for what does belial have in common with Christ?" Where is your heart dear one? Is it with God or with man? Moderator is RIGHT.

Teresa, why don't you speak to the guy and try to convert him to Christianity? Does he belong to some other religion? Is he a good person? Honest?

You lose nothing by trying and you can gain a lot.

2Corinthian 6:14 Don't be unequally joined with a unbeliever;for what friendship has righteousness with unrighteousnessor what common intrest has light with darkness.david7744

"IF" you are a christian, then it would be unwise to marry this man. You could marry him, but, God's word says that we are NOT to be unequally yoked,i.e. joined together with unbelievers. If you think you can marry him and convert him, you are not showing wisdom. While it could happen, it likely would take a long time for it to come about, and you would be unhappy in the meanwhile.

As a single Christian woman living a set apart life, and believing the LORD for a Chistian husband, no matter what changes I have made in my list, it always begins with " a man who know's God for himself, and lives like it"
Make no mistake, there is something to be said for the phrase, be careful what you ask for.
Be clear about what you want when you pray, God is not the only one listening.

I Corinthians 7:12: "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.
I Corinthians 7:13: "And the woman which hath an
husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell
with her, let her not leave him."

Those verses speak of a married couple. Now, I wonder
as to how that union came about? Perhaps one or the other
got converted after they had already been in the marriage.
Paul recommendation is that the believer just need to ascertain
if the unbelieving partner "is pleased to dwell" with the believer.
The believer only needs the assurance that the unbeliever
will not hinder the believer from walking with the Lord.
---Nana on 1/6/07

If you as a believer can define what is it that "pleased to dwell"
means, you may be able to santify your union. But know this,
that you as believer must also be "pleased to dwell" with the
unbeliever. If you hope he be converted it is a good thing but
you must not insist that it be a requirement. Fair is fair and we
are called to Peace and to Love.

If being a Christian was not at the top of your list it should have been. A person you have only known for one year cannot be your best friend. That should be reserved for someone who has known you most of your lifetime. You do not know this man in only a year and he does not know you. It takes years for even married couples to get to know each other.

It would be interesting to see what was on your list since this man is not a Christian.
---Susie on 1/5/07

Is there any chance you can turn him on to Jesus? That would be awesome. But to marry him before he is a Christian is danger. What does he believe in? God would not send you a man who was not a believer, unless maybe it's up to you to teach him?
