Unevenly yoked

Today we’re talking about several topics, including a couple of articles around the question of unequally yoked marriages, where one spouse is a Christian believer, and the other is not. Can believers thrive in a spiritually unequal marriage?  Is the standard for biblical roles different for men and women in this type of marriage? If you’ve been in that situation, we’d love to have you be a part of the conversation in our second segment.

In the first segment, our guest, Dr. Cal Beisner of  the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation, joins us to explain how the greening up of faith, education and the Church will radically change America and lead us to staggering results in our government. Dr. Cal was an instrumental resource and interviewee for the new documentary movie, AGENDA: Grinding America Down, a ministry in itself showing how end times prophesies are already playing out and have been for years. It’s one of those films every Christian should see and share.

    “As a Christian community, we're currently allowing politics to inform our faith, rather than allowing our faith to inform our politics.”

    I would agree with that. The problem is that most of the new "creation care" groups are really just lassez faire lobbies working the political spin mill. For balance sake let us consider that mankind was created to tend to the creation. If the by product of unregulated industry is considered in that sense the Cayuhoga River would still be on fire. There is also a verse in Revelation that should inform our sense of balance on tins matter.

    Revelation 11:18 The nations were angry; and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and your saints and those who reverence your name, both small and great–and for destroying those who destroy the earth.

    Don't be afraid to be in the minority when it comes to the proper biblical balance on any issue. You might feel lonely but you will be in good company.

    God bless.

    Unequally yoked

    Can believers thrive in a relationship where the spouse is unbelieving? This question is really asking another: is our growth dependant on our circumstances? This question has an implied assumption, it assumes that an environment that is not hostile is the most conducive for growth. I would argue without conflict growth is impossible.

    If there is conflict it is meant for our benifit. For one thing, we need to learn God's word is true and therefore trust it completely. Without this testing we will rely on our own understanding and thus shipwreck our faith.

    Romans 8:

    28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

    30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. 31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.

    34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

    36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    (And we must also put into practice what we are commanded to do. Our own inability to do this is a testiment to where we are spiritually and should teach us how depraved we really are. 2 Cor 13:5 again we are supposed to learn to have no confidence in our flesh so that we throw ourselves at the mercy of God and submit to the power of the Holy Spirit, to the end that God is glorified in us.)

    Matthew 5
    38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. 41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. 42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

    43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven:

    for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

    Oddly enough even in our churches today we are unequally yoked. That is not all who are there are saved and those that claim to be saved do not do what God commands us to do as a body of believers when we come together. Therefore little eddification is happening even when the most eloquent orator is speaking and our worship services end up in Idolatry which is adultry. Yes we are breeding this problem in our services.
