I sometimes wonder, too. Good thing Jesus forgives us for being lost.
Also dashing, the Jews made a covenant or contract with the Heavenly Father to be his people and follower his commandments.
The other nations of people were not covered ,De 31:16 They will forsake me and break my covenant that I have made with them
Lady: If u were not "in Christ," (Acts 2:42; Gal 1:6-9) during marriage, you were not "Married" in the sight of God! If divorced (man's law) but not "in Christ," u were never married! Now free to re-marry, "ONLY in the LORD! I Cor 7:39!
Norine the scriptures are clear , 1Co 7:13 and if a woman has an unbelieving husband and he is agreeable to staying with her, let her not leave her husband, he created the marriage bound, it is still valid rather
or not you know Jesus.
K&T: Would you pls read my response to the response (4th paragraph) I gave above!
Who mentioned "an unblvr" departing? I repeat, if NOT (key Words) "in the Lord," not a "Marriage in the sight of God!"
Because, your statement is not valid, each person is responsible for his own salvation to God rather they are married or not.marriage is benifits a man and woman .you can be married and fall to sin.
GOD said "be fruitful & multiply!" Said nothing about "Marry" for the reasons we do-Lust, looks, money, status, etc! If "IN CHRIST" love comes naturally!
Yes, "we sin," but not "against our own bodies" (fornication/adultery)! No desire!

True in scriptures as read dashing , but we must remember people do all these things and are not dead or stoned, but what we have is the principals and examples of how the heavenly Father feels about the subject matter, also the Jews
Kiss andTales people have always "cherry picked" which scriptures (they) wanted to follow. I also believe (man) not God wrote the bible and religion was designed as a form of government for people of that era.
Interesting dashing you are right people pick what is convenient for them , but Like a piece of Art we have copies made by man , but the image and mind of the Artist, the bible is the same. The message is not lost
No matter the time and generations
K&T: Why refer to the OT that has been "fulfilled!" OT (Ex 31:15, Lev 20:9; Deut 31:16; Prov 21:19;Mk 10:11-12 "fulfilled" by Eph 5:31-32) have ALL been "fulfilled!"
Do we sacrifice? NO-as ALL were "fulfilled" under New Covenant!
1Co 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified in relation to his wife,and the unbelieving wife is sanctified in relation to the brother; otherwise, your children would be unclean, but now they are holy.
marriage no matter who believes is sacre
True but at least ONE must be "sanctified" or (Key Words) "in the Lord!" God intended a REAL "Marriage" to be as "Christ is to the CHURCH, both Holy & "in the Lord" (I Cor 7:39) otherwise we WERE DEAD (Eph 2:1;Col 2:13;Rm 6:11; I Tim 5:16)! DEA

True the one offended is not obligated to stay rather they are repented or not. For the reason of release has been done.
The "Key" to a REAL "Marriage" (1st or 2nd) is "ONLY IN THE LORD" (I Cor 7:39)! If there's adultery in a "Marriage" I Cor 6:16 applies!
I Cor 7:15:16 "..God has called us to "rest" (peace)." What's "peace" to you? If one "rests" no longer active!
There are people that are faithful to their mates and do not worship God. That does not mean they are adulterers. Some people are not educated yet. And when they are they decide for them self.
It doesn't matter "what people do," only what GOD has said regarding "Marriage!" I find it "unScriptural" to "appease" ppl & not tell them the "truth!" Happy or not if "marriage" NOT (Key Words) "in the Lord," not a "Marriage" in GOD's sight!

So Norine what do you mean you are not married legally? Explain how that is scriptual
K&T: How did you come to that conclusion?
Married for 42+ yrs, not IN Christ @ 1st. Now "In Christ" & I Cor 6:9-11 applies! V.11-Now clean by "His Blood!" See how Grace & Mercy works? NOW "Married" in the sight of God! Always was re:
Norine your statement is not clear, you can not marry Jesus,
Through religion, that is a doctrine of men., you said you was not legal in marriage, but you did not specify how, all people do not live and see life and religion the way you do.
Who said that? R u looking @ "the question a girl asked" in my resp?
Yes, one can be "married" to Jesus that's our goal to become His "bride" who He is gathering now (THE CHURCH)! We are ONE as in a "Marriage!" (Eph 5:31-32)
It''s a GRT Alegory!
Norine that was written for the first pick of Jewish believers they are first picks to the Jobs of being beside Jesus in his Government.
The many churches listed are not valid and many are called to judgment as a harlots in Revelation. They are not
Norine many churches are contaminated with the ways of satan,
They have allowed satan to infiltrate his thoughts and ways,and many people see the hypocrisy in religion.So does God the Father, he will not allow the ways men practice come up in heaven
Did I not say in my resp that "We have moved AWAY from the Word of God & need to return? That's why NO ONE blvs a TRUE "Marriage" should be "ONLY IN THE LORD!" Moved too far fm GOD and they "believe" right is wrong & vice versa!

Kiss andTales says
The point is gifts of animal sacrifices were done away with, and the New contract was a better contract that included all nations of people to have a real relationship with the heavenly Father based on the last gift Jesus his son. A gift to all.
K&T: U KNOW? GRT!
I Cor 6:16 says "Do u know that if a man is married to a "harlot" (fornicator) she's still your wife if "IN CHRIST" for I Cor 7:13 says the "unbeliever" is "sanctified" by the "believer!" Law (Matt,Mk,Lk&Jn) r OT too-fulfi
