    Reply to Bruce's and other's statements. PLEASE read Romans 6....Many skip this chapter and go straight to Romans 10:9 to prove their 'faith only' doctrine. It is in water baptism Acts 8 Acts 2, Acts 22 and many others that we meet the blood of Jesus Christ that removes our sins, and destroys the old man of sin...After that, we receive the Holy Spirit Acts 2:38 There are no gray areas

    Always make Jesus Christ the center of your marriage. Give the Lord your Marriage and as the scriptures read "What God has joined together, let no man put asunder. When Husband and Wife quarrel, forgive one another and pursue the peace; so Satan does not come in the Marriage to destroy it. I am living proof it works. I have been married for 49 years and counting.
