    Marriage is a life long obligation. marriage is a divine institution. Christ is the groom and the church the bride. With this in mind it is easier to understand the will of our God in the Christ Paul speaks by the authority given and provided by the holy spirit. We too through faith, can learn patience and grow in love with one another, asking God in Prayer for his support in all these things.

    Clearer explanation of 1 Corinth 6:9, 10 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Then lists the fornicators sexually immoral , idolater, adulterers, effeminate male prostitutes , abusers of themselves with mankind homosexual offenders , 10. The thieves, covetous the greedy , drunkards, revilers slanderers , extortioners swindlers . . .
  • Adam
    Fornication in verse 2- do you believe fornication is sexual intercourse outside of marriage? Does it include all sexual activity even kissing is considered sexual by some or just intercourse?
  • BSP
    Verse 16~ A husband's or wife's faith can have a powerful impact on their unbelieving mate and may even move that one to have faith.
  • Peace Francis
    1Corinthian 6:9-10 be not deceived neither fornicators, nor idolatry nor adulterers, nor effeminate(homosexual), not abusers of themselves with mankind... Shall inherit the kingdom of God.
  • Mrs. Lindsey
    Verse 2 is my favorite because it lets us know that a man is to have his own wife, not nobody else's and a woman is to have her own husband, not the husband of another woman and never, ever are two folk of the same gender to call themselves married to each other!! That's simply an abomination.

    Hallelujah Amen. So many people are content with the devil running their lives, that sin is bliss. No morals, no conscience, no consequences, no remorse. Without "JESUS...NO LIFE"
  • BSP
    Verse 28~There are no perfect marriages because there are no perfect people. Married people will experience tribulation in the flesh but they must stick to their vows of for better or for worse.

    Blessed; I'm not sure how you come up with the idea that my spouse left me; but it isn't true. The points you bring up however are worth talking about. God absolutely has a plan for each of us to know and understand Him through Jesus and His Spirit. Most do not think in these terms, but are greedily hoping and looking for some kind of glory and happiness for self. And YES Many impostors in church.
  • Blessed
    To a disciple,stephen and others that have gone thru the pain of your spouse leaving you
    It is because of that God again has a plan for each of us.
    I met a great Christian lady and fell in love like nothing I had ever experienced before. My ex had a affair with a person from church! Guard your family at church
    Do not let your guard down. Churches have many wolves in sheeps clothing!!
  • A disciple
    Stephen; I am so very thankful for the Lord's gentleness and forgiveness for taking me back as well, and not letting the devil destroy me while I was out there! There are many of us who have been betrayed and mistreated by those whom we loved and trusted, and have foolishly reacted by taking a bad turn into sin because of it. There's a lot of wisdom we can share with others, how and why not to do!
  • A disciple
    Josef; the first thing I've always thought about that verse is like when the Lord said, If your eye cause you to sin, pluck it out and cast it away from you; for its better to enter into life one-eyed, than to be cast into the Gehenna of fire. The Greek word translated, "burn" comes from the word meaning "to kindle" or "be ignited, glow" lit. be refined, or inflamed (with anger grief lust etc).

    Romans 15: 8 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: Now, I am a uncircumcised Gentile, therefore I follow Apostle Paul through Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord
  • A disciple
    Hello David; That is so very sad and painful! Without knowing you or your circumstances, I can only try to give some general advice and hopefully encourage you in God through some related experience. As far as Church "activities;" maybe just a little from time to time, to lift your mind and spirit up out of the doldrums; and if you can, have some "heart to heart" with a closer brother, and pray!
  • Ray321
    3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: Salvation is and always will be at the cross, that's where Jesus is glorified by his finished works. We must believe the Word and be saved with all our faith in heart. Amen
  • David
    how should a christian act in a church if he seperats from his wife should he take an active part

    lewis, If I am included in "most", I have not forgotten. Philippians 2:12 Paul said,"Wherefore my beloved as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling." There's those words again; obey ,fear and trembling."
  • Lewis
    I think most are forgetting several scriptures in the Bible, Jesus said you must be born again, of the Spirit and of the water, Peter said to repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus, Paul said we must work out our own salvation, and there are many more scriptures confirming this.We as adults can not be saved by what some one else believes.

    marriage was created by God if at time we have no respect for God how can we have respect for our spouses. the Holy Spirit gudies us into all truth if we have the holy within us our desire will be for God and God alone hence any other relationship will have a positive and strong influence. but this is a daily relationship with God its a process so that we may reach the standards of God
  • Calvin Johnson
    Great chapter of the bible. As a christian counselor let me say Marriage should be taken seriously. I have seen so many fall apart because of our lack of knowledge. Just as you would tune up your car to keep it running smoothly. I advise married couples to attend marriage seminars or retreats annually. God Bless

    What a treasure trove of wisdom! And such important subject matter.
  • BSP
    Verses 32 through 38 talk about the advantages of being single. It allows one to focus on serving God more fully with less distractions.
  • Stephen
    In this times and season of chaos, pestilence, recession, terrorism, crisis, wars, draught, famine experienced around the world, we need to draw closer to God.

    It is a good thing to serve the Lord. When the word of God concerning marriage is wholly applied, it brings peace, joy, harmony, togetherness and above all love to the home.

    God Bless the Marriage of all our brethren globally.

    To 'p' on 1 Cor. (lust) -- as lust is condemned, then it isn't part of the Spirit of God. The spirit of God is found in Gal. I forget the scriptures. A person with God's spirit indwelling in him - God gives desire' to for their mate, not 'lust'. You have to have the indwelling spirit to know the difference. Lust is of Satan.
  • P
    If looking at another with lust is considered adultery, and we are more or less biologically programmed to feel lust in order to propogate the species, it would appear that the overwhelming majority of human beings are guilty of a mortal sin because of their nature.Good thing looking at other peoples food isn't a sin.
  • Judith
    It is so good to adhere to God's word. When you ask him to help you. You will be sustained. It is good that people who are preparing to get married agree and ask the Lord to assist them and do not indulge in formication. It is possible to wait until the day of the Wedding. God bless you all.
    I left my husband for the 3rd time ,due to emotional ,physically and spiritually abuse, it's sad cause the only time he pleased if I allow him to come over and stay a night or two, but I'm not happy with that. I would love for my husband to seek GOD for his healing and blessing, and then if its meant for us to be 1 again then ill be happy. If not I must accept the fact and truth divorce.
  • Loved my Corinthians in the Bible!
  • Wandering but not lost
    @cassandramorgan Jesus says that one who looks at another with lust in their heart has already committed adultery (Matthew 5:28).

    @jessicahoover your husband is sanctified through you: according to Strongs accordance, that word there means set apart, holy in sight of God
