Husband Does't Want Christ
My husband doesn't want anything to do with God, he says he is not ready coz he's a sinner, I am so tired. I cannot trust him, this is causing alot of arguments. He's cheated on me. Will God forgive me if I leave? I don't want to put pressure on my husband, but without God, there is no marriage.

My Dear Sister in the Lord. I understand it must be very hard for you. The Lord does understand your position. . This is what the Lord says:1 Peter 3:1 "Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands, that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives," Read this as well sister:
1 Corinthians Chapter 7:v10-17. I know it is not easy. Ask the Lord to help you to look to Him and not your husband. And God will deal with your husband. Build your relationship with Christ and the Lord will do the rest. Get into the routine of spending a good hour in the Word of God and prayer, and you will find your home and peace there: Put God first and the rest will follow.

With God you never know. He wants you to have peace. He could remove you for a period of time and He can do what He pleases. But you must follow Him. Have a blessed life.+++

Sounds like he is what he says he is, Yolande.
How do you feel about the Bible? It says if an unbeliever wants to stay, keep him (1 Corinthians 7:13). And, "Do all things without complaining and disputing," (Philippians 2:14) YOU are obligated to do this, whether he does or not. How about 1 Peter 3:1-4 and more?
We ALL need "the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God" (in 1 Peter 3:4)

Jack: you can call yourself a sinner if you want. But for me, I am no longer a sinner but a Child of God. Old things passed away, behold everything new. Yes there is Jesus. Who makes one become a Christian, which is no longer a sinner.

**he says he is not ready coz he's a sinner,**
Who is NOT a sinner, including you and me, Yolande?
That's WHY there's Jesus.

You cannot make get saved. And God can't save an unwilling soul. God may convict him of his sins, but he won't force himself on no one. He says he isn't ready because he doesn't want to become saved. He is enjoying his sinful life. Why, I don't know. If you choose to leave, you need to leave because you can't trust him, not because he is a sinner. And yes if you leave him, God will forgive you.

Hi yolanda, I can hear the discouragement in your words. I would suggest that you read Psalm 34. I have found the words of this Psalm to be very comforting to me in my walk with the Lord. As far as your husband, only God can change his heart. Keep him in prayer daily. God bless you and your family.

If your husband does not want God,God cannot do anything for him. Your husband has to realize he is a sinner and that he needs God and not the other way around. Until then there is not much you can do. An unsaved person has no restraints and no fear of God, therefore, what would stop him from cheating?
If you caught him in the act of adultery you can divorce him. But if not you can free yourself from him,through separation.

"And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions, and in the world to come eternal life." -- Mark 10:29-30
God forgives all sin except blasphemy. Nothing should stand between you and the Lord.

The Bible is clear in 1Cor.7:10-15 that you are not to leave him if he chooses to stay with you. It also states in Matt.5:32 that you are also able to excercise your right for a divorce because of fornication on his part but this is not God's choice. What is God's choice is that your husband gets saved and you are the chosen one for that according to 1 Peter 3:1-6. Your holiness will be attractive to your husband. Examine if you are.

What is he supposed to be before he receives Christ? Surely not already righteous, but I am sure that is what he thinks. He who has the power to condemn justifies the ungodly and God commended His love toward us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Does he know that God loves him based on what Jesus did and not based on what he does?

Please read Matt.19:1-10 & 1 Corn. 7:10-17. then pack your stuff and bid him goodbye. Unless you love him and then you stay & pray. If one cheats the other is free. However, if you two are not born again Christians. Gods laws of marriage does not apply to you. Besides God curses no one. The curse if Death of the flesh then the second spiritual death.
