Question: These two questions came at different times, but I believe they could be related. 1. If a husband is into drunkenness, he steals from his wife and their children, he has been verbally and physically abusive, and he has had extra martial affairs, is she wrong for divorcing him (paraphrased)? Even when he refuses to leave the martial home? 2. What does the Bible say about loyalty, once broken, can it ever be restored?
Question: Where does the Bible compare being unevenly [unequally] yoked [in marriage] to a cow and horse being unevenly yoked and trying to plow together?; Is Polygamy okay?; Musical instruments in the Church; How do I love an enemy that hates me?
Question: I’m a Christian man and I’m in love with a Muslim girl. She’s [at] work with me. I’ve never thought of being married [with] her because I’m living in a country that prohibits Christian men marrying Muslim women, so I’m just loving her. The problem is that from the time I felt emotions towards her, I felt things going upside down in my life and I started thinking that this might be God’s voice for me to stop loving her. So, could it be so and if true, what can I do? It’s very difficult to get rid of this love because we see each other nearly everyday in our job. So is love with an unsuitable partner a sin, even pure love? Please help me.
Question: See if you see any similarities between these two notes that were sent to us from different countries: Lady number one: “My husband is Hindu and he is having [an] affair with [a] Christian female. When I caught them he said he [would] stop it, but that female is not leaving him. She is married and [I] even requested her [to leave him], but she ignores me and pushes my husband hard to maintain [the] relationship.” Lady number two: “I’ve been married for 2 years. I recently found out my husband has a profile on —–.net and ——–.com. After having a check up, I found out that I have a STD. What does the Bible say to do?
Question: I was wondering if you would comment on a husband who is mentally and verbally abusive but who is also a Christian? I know this to be true, because while I do feel that he loves me, he also goes to church with me almost every Sunday and he and I are involved in Bible studies. (We just finished a couple’s class through church actually), he has grown more accustomed to tithing with our church.
He also on occasion will comment about Christ’s upcoming return and saying how exciting it is. I do feel that he is a good person. He shows that by helping everyone who asks him. He even asks me to pray with him at night. But he is only abusive to his mother and myself, a learned behavior from his father. I believe that he struggles with anxiety/depression and low-self esteem but he refuses to seek help with or without me. He has said that he would read books or watch christian marriage seminars at home with me, and we have, but none have made him put anything we’ve learned into practice. We have been together for about 5 years now but only married for a year and a half.
Question: Should a Christian woman stay in a marriage of verbal abuse for over 20+ years when the husband refuses to go and get some help and counseling and is angry at the whole world and he is also a racist. He has repeatedly said that he has done nothing wrong and that he is not changing for anyone especially his wife and daughter. The family had almost ended up in a physical fight with which all three involved could have been hurt or killed.
Question: My family believes that if you divorce for any reason and remarry another, you are living in sin. That I also believe, but the confusing thing [that] I cannot get them to see is if that divorced person now gets saved [they shouldn’t go back to the first husband or wife.] They believe that that person should go back to the first wife or husband. Now that I am wiser and reading my Bible I see nothing in the Bible that supports that. How can I get them to see that two wrongs don’t make it right?
