When you are a follower of Christ, it is inevitable that sometime someone will ask you: “What if the Bible/God/etc. is not true?” Perhaps you have even experienced doubt about God’s existance or the authenticity of the Bible. After all, how can you trust in a God you have never seen, heard, or touched?
Whenever I am asked the above question, I think this to myself: If the Bible or God or Christ is not true, my life would still have been worth living in a Biblical way as a follower of the teachings of Christ.
“Unequally yoked” does not just refer to a Christian marrying a non-Christian, but to a wide scope of differences within Christendom and even our own church. If a couple marries, and the husband and wife have different beliefs, this will… sooner or later …cause strife in their family. One of the biggest problems is: Which “belief” will the children be raised as?
Many times, we see what God has told us we must do, and we decided it is okay to do only some of it or to do it our way, instead of God’s way. There will be consequence for disobeying the Lord. Just because we received grace in Christ does not mean we can still consciously commit sin. A sin is the breaking of God’s Law, the Ten Commandments (1 John 3:4), and the consequence of sin is death (Romans 6:23). The Scriptures in Romans 6:1-2 are very clear: “Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid!”
