Can a Christian be married to an atheist and still have a blessed marriage?
God gives blessings to all. A Christian man or woman who is married to a person that is not yolked in the faith is not recommended but should one already be in a marriage with an atheist...who is to say that God will not move over the atheist and make a yolk eventually between them? It may be long suffering but God does powerful things. God is faithful to the Christian who loves their atheist wife or husband and does not desert them. So yes...the blessing may be a bigger blessing that you can imagine or expect eventually. It may be difficult to not have a spiritual connection from God acknowledged between both...but again God can do the impossible. So yes!
"God gives blessings to all."
I Cor 7:39 says a "true marriage" (when a Christian widower remarries) the marriage should be "...ONLY IN THE LORD!" He doesn't "bless all" marriages if against WORD!
If I take a homeless person into my home who does not know God & love him, feed him, clothe him. Is he not blessed by God? God is the giver of all blessings. My husband became saved & is now a Christian. Is this not God's blessings? God bless
The OT (basis) is our standard of what GOD desires re:marriage! (Ezra) "Divorce "foreign" wives!" Orig: GOD wanted both 2 b in HIM but We do us (uneq yoked)! I agree w/ur resp "So yes!" re: I Cor 7:14! If widowed, I Cor 7:39 "ONLY n the LORD!"
I wonder who man is to decide which is blessed and which is not. I was in love with and then married a wonderful Buddhist gal. Lord knows I love her to this day with all my heart. I studied Buddhism and we lived a life of Church and temple. Love was all that was needed to bless our union. Sometime later, she had a serious conversion of faith and a personal testimony to "meeting" Christ.
We are a loving and cherishing home with an abundance of faith that even through very tough times brings us closer to each other and to Christ.
Perhaps had I not married her. We would not both be Christians now with a child who is in a loving Christian home. I do not know so much about being blessed but I do know that we count our blessings each day and give praise. I cannot imagine that God was anything but pleased with our marriage.
When GOD initially established "Marriage," it was to be "Holy" and "In the Lord!" Was not Adam & Eve both (at the time) Holy & in the Lord? However, "We do us," marry for all reasons and do not take consideration what GOD has said re: Marriage!
I Corinthians 7:14 says "For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife...else were your children unclean; but now are they holy."
If you study the Book of Ezra re: Marriage, GOD told them to "Divorce "foreign" (unbelieving) wives," yet under New Covenant I Corinthians 7:14 is now effective! Laws have been "fulfilled" through Paul (or JESUS speaking through Paul)!
Based on WORD, "yes," a believer "sanctifies the unbelieving husband" but is not how GOD "initially" intended "Marriage!" Consequently, (Based on WORD), "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers..." (II Corinthians 6:14), it will be a "tedious journey" until GOD intervenes!
Pray - For there is "nothing impossible with GOD" (Matthew 19:26)!
