---------- Family Life & Marriage ----------

My wife and I were married for many years and she divorced me and is living with another man. If she marries this man will they be one flesh?
I recently heard someone say that in the pastor's home the ministry comes first before his wife and family. He is to be consumed with the ministry; it is his first priority, and his wife should accept that. What are your thoughts on this?
I have some questions about Job...
I know that sex outside of marriage is wrong, but what does the Bible say that a couple should do if they fall into this mess? Does the Bible say that the couple should get married?
My wife who is a DEVOUT Oprah Winfrey follower and a devout believer in "being a good person gets you to heaven," Over the past nearly 13 years that I have tried to live for the Lord I have endured more persecution than I can handle....I have come to the point where I have no other choice but to give up on ever being able to live a Christian life again.
If a married man's wife is not a Christian but the husband is, will this exclude them from church membership?
What is a woman to do when she is basically forced to divorce?
Why do you believe the way you do about music, and what books would you recommend that I read to learn more about the subject?
Can you speak to verses like Psalms 109:10 and 12 ? ........I just don't understand why He would call for a blind eye to orphans.
When I was nine years old my dad had an affair with a woman from church and left my mom. We begged him to stay, but he left anyway.
Do you understand or see a need for true Christian psychologists?
My husband and I have been married for almost 1 year but there is something we are consistently having problems with.
Would it be wrong to reconcile with your first husband according to Deuteronomy 24:4?
I have been divorced and remarried.
My youth administrator told us not to believe what people say but to look it up for ourselves, so I would like to know where I can find the verse in the Bible that says pre-marital sex is a sin.
What do You think about divorce in the book of Matthew?
We recently had a discussion of the verse "train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it." I have heard people teaching that that verse means you should raise a child in the way he is bent towards like being a doctor, plumber, so forth. When we asked this question at ______________, they also gave that answer. They said they had just seen to many good Christian people raise kids that have gone wrong. Please give us your opinion on the matter.
There is somewhere in the Bible where Jesus told someone to leave their family behind to go and follow Him. My husband feels that God is calling him to preach the word. I am really excited for him and willing to help him all I can. He has been told that he may even have to leave me and our 4 children and give us up to serve God. I know the high priority that God holds in marriage and family and I also know that there will be times that he will have to be away. Could you tell me of some scriptures that would help him in his decisions about leaving the family?
What do you believe about inter-racial marriages?
Do you consider Disney movies [Snow White, Aladdin, Beauty & Beast, etc.] harmless entertainment or something that we should keep away from our kids?
When you write that divorce and remarriage limits an individual's ability to assume leadership in the church, I guess by what you are saying that Jesus was lying when He said: "Who the Son sets free is free indeed." It is this type of bondage that he came to deliver us from. I will pray for you.
I am engaged to be married in about a year. I am a 24 year old saved Christian and my fiancÚ is not saved and not religious at all. My problem is that my fiancÚ is so reluctant and negative when it comes to being saved. I pray for him every day and I just don't know what to do anymore. I am so frustrated and confused. Is God is trying to give me a message that it won't work, or if I should continue to pray and hope that everything falls into place? I am beside myself about this. My fiancÚ knows how much this means to me but still feels pressured and that everyone is trying to make him do something that he doesn't want to do. He feels everyone should accept him the way he is. I pray and pray and things only seem to get worse as far as his coming to the Lord is concerned. I have faith that he will eventually come to the Lord but I am so frustrated by his negativity and harsh words...
