Violated My Marriage Vows

I can not forgive myself for violating my marriage vows. Confession and requesting forgiveness from God has brought no relief to the demons inside my head.

Shira, for your information I never said you were not saved. I said people didn't know how they were saved. You called me a false teacher, when it is you who does not know the God of the Bible. I have studied Predestination, and studied every topic in Scripture. I do not speak of things that I have not studied. I study it in order to answer for God's Word not to be popular.
---Mark_V. on 12/13/13


Paul said he would not speak of anything that wasn't first WROUGHT IN HIM. So Paul experienced first what he knew to be fact and truth. It had nothing to do with studying at all.

Anyone can study other peoples works and false doctrine, but that doesn't make it truth or a personal experience.

Romans 15:17-19

17 I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God.

18 For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,.

19 Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.


The reason markv knows nothing of the CROSS is because it has not been WROUGHT IN HIM.

Markv is just someone elses tape recorder.

Elder 2: The God we worship never learns anything. He knows it all. Nothing anyone does brings any new knowledge to God. He is not in time as we are, He designed this plan and it is complete before Him. He knows the beginning and the end of all things. It is us who don't know the outcome of what tomorrow brings. It is us who don't know who will be saved and who is not. Every little detail of what we do in time has already been taken care of by God. Even the evil acts of man have already been taken care of by God, they are a part of the plan of redemption.
---Mark_V. on 12/13/13


Shira, for your information I never said you were not saved. I said people didn't know how they were saved. You called me a false teacher, when it is you who does not know the God of the Bible. I have studied Predestination, and studied every topic in Scripture. I do not speak of things that I have not studied. I study it in order to answer for God's Word not to be popular. What you should do is study who the God of the Bible really is, because the one you present is not the one from Scripture. You just don't like for someone to tell you, you are wrong. It would be very nice of me to say you are right at the expense of the Truth, but I do not do that. When you are wrong I try to correct you. And you are wrong so many times.
---Mark_V. on 12/13/13


MarkV, I do know the answers to my questions. I just wanted to know if you did. You don't so that is that.

But beyond that issue explain this one please.
You said, "God saves through His word whomever He wishes to save."

If everything is predetermined why do we need God's Word involved? Why do we need to be involved?

Was anyone involved in telling you about Salvation before you were saved?
---Elder on 12/13/13




Elder, you of all people should know the answers, you say:
"Well, if your doctrine is so correct why does God need you involved?" God commands all believers to bring the gospel Truth, that should never be questioned. Then say,
" What can you change in what God has willed to do?" not a thing, He willed for all believers to preach the gospel. Then say:
"You have also said that you don't know who is saved or not." We don't know who is saved. God saves through His word whomever He wishes to save. We do what we were willed to do. "For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them" (Eph. 2:10).
---Mark_V. on 12/13/13


markv, I am surely not upset with you I am just trying to let people on cn to see the truth. I have never said I wanted you off here. never, never. to be frank, I wish you would study predestination instead of reading books or whatever you read. you have accuse me several times and you even told me I wasn't saved. now brother, that made me down right mad. if you don't know you are saved then how do you know about my salvation? you don't.
---shira4368 on 12/13/13


MarkV I have not seen anyone who has said they want you to leave.

But explain this to me. You said, "Shira, it does not hurt me that you try to stop me from bringing the Truth of God to individuals who do not know yet how they were saved. I present a God of power, who does what pleases Him"

Well, if your doctrine is so correct why does God need you involved? What can you change in what God has willed to do?

You have also said that you don't know who is saved or not. So what good do you think you can do above what you claim God has willed to do?
---Elder on 12/12/13


Shira, you had said to me:
"markv, to take you personally would destroy my credibility and my integrity. I would not want "any sinner" that reads these blogs to listen to you" First, if you don't take me personally, why do you get so upset at me that you want me to leave, and don't want anyone to listen to the Word of God I present? I write the Truth down, give Scripture passage, what do you want me to write?
I am the opposite of you, I would not want "any believer" that reads these blogs to listen to you, if they did they would be confused with the words you use. We are called to edify our brothers and sisters, and you want me to stop.
---Mark_V. on 12/12/13



I know that many Popes confuse the two, and assume they are the head of the whole church, not just the section based in Rome.

---Peter on 12/11/13


That's the part you're missing! To Catholics, there is no difference. ALL popes believe they are the head of the whole church. They believe that the Catholic Church IS THE WHOLE CHURCH! Catholics believe that any time the Bible says "the church", it is actually referring to The Roman Catholic Church rather than the universal body of believers. Their name "Catholic" is very indicative of who they actually think they are. Catholics truly believe that the entire body of believers is contained inside of their denomination.
---Jed on 12/11/13




Jed on 12/9/13: I just wanted to point out, in your discussion with Cluny, that in the old days (until about 1000AD), the term catholic church, just meant the whole of the church.

In those days, disagreement with the beliefs of the catholic church (which had agreed, for example on which books would be in the New Testament) could be classed as a serious problem in one's faith (like if one considered other books to be part of the New Testament).

I know that many Popes confuse the two, and assume they are the head of the whole church, not just the section based in Rome.
---Peter on 12/11/13


markv, I must confess if a person is truly born of the spirit, they absolutely know it. I know the very second God saved me. any person who is truly saved knows where and when.
---shira4368 on 12/11/13


Shira, it does not hurt me that you try to stop me from bringing the Truth of God to individuals who do not know yet how they were saved. I present a God of power, who does what pleases Him, you present a god who is powerless to do anything right. This happens all the time from so many people like you who don't know, yet speak as if you did. There is many here who are saved, yet don't know how that happened. You don't want them to know. You rather keep them guessing. Was it God or was it their own ability to use their free will? Go ahead and speak for sinful man, I do not mind, I will continue to speak for Almighty God even if you don't like it, that is my duty as a believer in Christ.
---Mark_V. on 12/11/13


markv, to take you personally would destroy my credibility and my integrity. I would not want any sinner that reads these blogs to listen to you. I would never never want one to miss heaven because of false prophets which you are one. you accuse me of participating in very few post and I must tell you every single blog you post is about predestination.
---shira4368 on 12/10/13


Shira, the reason we all disagree with you is because you are wrong on almost everything you say. And what you do is take it personal. I do not think anyone here hates you personally. I disagreed with you when you mentioned you want to help Cluny with money even though he disagreed with you on many topics. I said give with an open heart, there was no need to mention that he disagreed with you. Godly giving has no conditions. That is an act of love. Love does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the Truth. I know you enjoy getting on many blogs, but you answer on topics you have not studied, or know very little about, only what you heard from others.
---Mark_V. on 12/10/13


Guilty, you must be real guilty that you cannot forgive yourself for violating your marriage vows. Could be you might have to tell your spouse before you can find forgiveness for yourself. You know it will hurt him very much, but it is always better to tell the Truth, it might be worse if he finds out from others or maybe the very person you violate your vows with. The consequences of sin some times are very terrible, and other times not that bad. Ask for forgiveness from your husband and you will live a life with no more guilt.
I am praying for you, that you will do the right thing.
---Mark_V. on 12/10/13

Peter, I copied and pasted the quotes word for word. I am only aware of one Catholic Church. And since these quotes came from Popes who were leaders of the Roman Catholic Church, I'm quite certain that's the Catholic Church they were referring to.
---Jed on 12/9/13


Jed: You quoted, I think to Cluny (who is not Catholic), four quotes, three of which use the term 'Catholic faith' and one uses 'Catholic Church'.

Are you sure they are like you quote them and not 'catholic faith' and 'catholic church'

Because the people who agreed on what was in the Bible DID included 'in one holy, catholic and apostolic church' (they did NOT mean the one based in Rome)

So the capital letter makes a HUGE difference - only the one with a capital C is the one based in Rome - catholic church with no capital C, means the entire church, all Christians

If the four comments were made verbally, you do not know which the Pope meant

Also, again, not that Cluny is NOT of the RCC
---Peter on 12/9/13


BTW, I'm still waiting for Cluny to address the Popes' quotes that I posted which state the exact opposite of what Cluny says the Catholic Church teaches.
---Jed on 12/9/13


grandma, cluny, Christian and markv are the ones I see who are nuts. everything I put in my post and I mean everything is met with controversies. cluny is just insulting and tries to act like we are all not as intelligent as him.

From here on, I'm being careful not to attack the person posting, and stay with the ideas.

I actually wish EVERYONE, including those with no jobs, could and would get out of their houses more and on the computer less! I just happened to notice that Cluny IS on CN all the time and happened to be posting on other blogs constantly during the times I was waiting for a response on this thread, so I know he was simply avoiding answering me.

And I never said it was. YOU are the one who has volunteered this information. I never asked for it.

All I asked is why you suddenly stop responding to arguments once you have been proven wrong? But I already know the answer. It's obvious you are too weak of a man to simply admit that you are wrong. So you simply avoid the topic and either leave the blog altogether, or try to distract attention to something irrelevant, like someone's spelling or punctuation, or some other irrelevant topic. Just like you did now by posting this remark instead of answering the question about the Catholic quotes I gave.

You're an open book, Cluny.

Jed: Every quote supports what I was taught in Catechism in Catholic school. I was also taught that it was a sin to attend a Protestant church.

I remember when my aunt and uncle, who'd been married for years, and had three children, had to get married again, IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, as they were converting to Catholicism. I also remember that when I got married, after I left the Catholic church, my Catholic godmother was upset that I wasn't married "in the church."

Still waiting, Cluny. I've noticed you have responded to several other blogs today. What's wrong? Cat got your tongue?

Grandma:

My point is that what a church teaches, and what its members believe, are not necessarily identical.

Jed:

You said: BTW, did you know that Catholics believe that only Catholics are saved? ...

You can criticize what the church teaches, but not what Catholics belive (since each one may believe differently).

Cluny messaged on 11/30. You said So no reply from Cluny? Typical of Cluny to suddenly leave a conversation when he's been caught in an obvious lie. He replied on 12/1, only one day later.

Thank you for saying that my mind is not deceived and confused like yours! Apparently I "don't have the mind" that makes me give a totally different meaning to things other people say. I'm glad for that! I don't look for some alternative meaning in what people say. I take their words to mean exactly what they mean. I don't play childish word games like you do.

God has forgiven you, that is the easy part.

however, Satan loves the guilt trip of you staying in bondage from that sin. This is where forgiving yourself comes in. C.S. Lewis quote says "not forgiving oneself is like making your self a higher authority than God" and "What saves a man (woman) is to take a step. Then another step" Jesus says it this way "How often to forgive a brother? 70*7" even if it is for the same issue.

Cluny: Exactly when did the Catholic Church stop teaching that only Catholics can go to heaven, and Protestants, like Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, and all the rest, are definitely Hell bound. I was taught that only Roman Catholics go to heaven, and that people who do not convert, get Christened, and observe all the Sacraments, are Hell Bound. I was taught that by the nuns in Catechism. Who taught you different, and when did they teach it?
---Trish on 11/30/13



Trish, if you really knew the Bible, you would know that a GOAT was the sacrificial victim on Yom Kippur, not a lamb.
---Cluny on 11/29/13


WRONG AGAIN! I guess that's because spiritual things are spiritually discerned! On Yom Kippur numerous animals (a bull, a ram, goats, and lambs) were sacrificed (Numbers 29:7-11). On Passover, the only animals sacrificed were lambs (Exodus 12:3). A spotless lamb was the most sacred of all sacrifices, representing purity and sinlessness. Goats represent sin. This is why the Bible actually refers to Jesus as "The Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world" (John 1:29). Not "the Goat of God", because Jesus was our sinless sacrifice.

---Jed on 11/30/13


Strongaxe, I agree with you. There is many who will be called by God from the RCC, just like from many other denominations. Those chosen by God before the foundation of the world are found everywhere. Second, no one knows who is truely saved right this minute, only God knows. I disagree with many doctrines of the RCC. But I cannot stand here and say they are not saved. No one can possibly know who God is going to save next. Many great man have come out of the RCC. While many held to bad traditions, God saved them by Grace through faith just like He has all through history. Another thing that is true, the sacrifices made in the Old Testament could not save anyone. Only the Sacrifice of Christ is sufficient to forgive the sins of man.
---Mark_V. on 11/30/13

StrongAxe: You're comparing apples and oranges. Abortion is a sin issue, which believers confess and repent of. Salvation is a doctrinal issue, which has to do with the core teachings and beliefs of a church and it's believers. If a Catholic is a born again, blood bought believer in Christ and claims to be saved, they disagree with the doctrinal teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.

Sacraments, particularly penance, are one key example.

Holy Days of Obligation are another. In the U.S. there are four about Mary, one about all the "saints," and only one about Jesus.
---Grandma on 11/29/13


Jed:

You said: StrongAxe, I have taught over and over again on these blogs on the severe doctrinal errors of the Catholic Church.

So what? Salvation comes by faith in Christ, not doctrinal correctness. In Matthew 25, Jesus separates righteous from wicked based on their compassion, NOT their doctrine.

Furthermore, even if a church teaches one thing, a member of that church may believe differently. A pointed example of this is Rome forbids abortion, yet more than 50% of American Catholics support it. If it's possible to believe wrongly something while your church teaches correctly, it's equally possible to believe correctly while your church teaches wrongly.
---StrongAxe on 11/29/13


Cluny: If you knew anything about the sacrifice required to forgive the sins of Israel, you'd know that it was the shed blood of a spotless lamb poured out that forgave their sins on the Day of Atonement. Since Jesus is the Lamb of God, it's HIS blood that was shed for my sins.

You obviously have not been taught what you claim your church is teaching you. Tsk tsk.

Cluny said: Where did you get the idea that you were saved, Jed?

You replied: Because the Bible says I am.

No verse in the Bible says "Jed" and "saved", so you must be drawing an inference (which may be true, but it's an inference nonetheless, not anything the Bible specifically says).

You said: Dear poster, ... This may be the reason you don't feel forgiven. God does not forgive the unsaved.

It sounds like you infer that Catholics are automatically unsaved. What basis do you have for such a conclusion? Nowhere does the Bible mention membership in any organization as preventing salvation. Except maybe Nicolaitans, who Jesus said he also hates.

Alan of UK: It's so good to see you. I've missed seeing you here. Welcome back.

Jed: Once again, I find myself having to say I totally agree with you on this blog. I was raised Catholic, and was not saved till I attended a Bible teaching church. God's grace, through our faith in Christ's blood, is how I found forgiveness, and the peace that passes all understanding.

\\Lutherans do not have priests, genius. They call their ministers "pastors", not "priest".\\

Except for Scandanavian Lutherans that maintain the three fold ministry.

\\Furthermore, Angelicans generally do not practice private confession,...\\

There's an order for private confession in the American BCP.

\\Those outside these denominations know that any differences between the two are purely political.\\

Those inside know better than you.

\\Where did you get the idea that you were saved, Jed?
Because the Bible says I am.\\

BCV, please.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Lutherans do not have priests, genius. They call their ministers "pastors", not "priest". Furthermore, Angelicans generally do not practice private confession, except in extreme and rare circumstances. And only members of the Orthodox and Catholic churches are foolish enough to make a distinction between the two. Those outside these denominations know that any differences between the two are purely political.

Where did you get the idea that you were saved, Jed?

"Forgiveness is only possible by grace through faith in Jesus' death and resurrection"

Precisely what Catholics beleive in.

\\ Which suggests to me that you are Catholic?\\

He could be Orthodox.

He could be Anglican.

He could be Lutheran.

It's not just Roman Catholics who practice auricular confession. Or did you think they alone did?

Dear Lady, all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. There is only one way for the sin to be forgiven, and that is through the confession of sin. You say you have confessed your sin to your priest, but it didn't remove your guilt.

Discover the Truth:
Go to a room where you can be all alone, and close the door.
Get on your knees and confess all your sin before God, and ask "him" to forgive you. When you finish, I guarantee this weight you carry will be lifted.

This is the way Jesus taught us to pray in (Matthew 6:6-16), and this is the only way to remove your guilt. And pay especial attention to verses (14 & 15)!!

Have you asked forgiveness of the human being you have offended by this violation of your marriage vows. That is something which must be done if you are seriously repentent.
---Rita_H on 11/27/13


Dear poster, you stated that you confessed your sin to your priest. Which suggests to me that you are Catholic? This may be the reason you don't feel forgiven. God does not forgive the unsaved. Forgiveness is only possible by grace through faith in Jesus' death and resurrection. My suggestion would be to first find a Bible believing pastor and congregation that will show you how to begin a walk with the Lord. And not only will this sin be forgiven, but ALL of your sins shall be forgiven through faith in Jesus Christ.

Be patient with yourself. Some wounds take a long time to heal.

Perhaps the anxiety you feel will only deepen your repentance and strengthen your marriage. (St. Augustine said similar things about his own colorful past.)

God bless you.

I committed adultery. I have confessed my actions to my spouse, my priest and close friends. My spouse and I are trying to work through this with a marriage counsellor and our priest but I still feel so guilty and ashamed of what I have done.

In what way did you violate your marriage vows? Adultery or abandonment? If adultery have you repented to your spouse? If abandonment have you considered returning?
