Since the Bible teaches that equal yoking makes for the best relationships, I hope that all that believe in Jesus will chime in on this blog so we can know who we are, anywhere in the world.

No offense to any that believe differently - hope you will add your thoughts, too. Here is a picture of me dressed as Jesus at my Easter service '06 - that is supposed to be blood among my chest hair :)

Hello, I agree about being equally yoked in a relationship. It is the only way. God is good and will help those who seek Him. I would love to talk more, although I am not a PREMIUM MEMBER at this time. I would love to discuss Christian beliefs, the Bible etc....
Thanks

Ok Grizlibr, so now I'm curious. How did you get "busted as a newbie"? :)

Proverbs 31, As a lifelong 52 year old bachelor, who has been a virgin all my life, I know where i am speaking! Not every saint, and that is the rioght work, which the early church was called. Christians, were thought of as not very nice people, in the early Roman world. Paul, amd all the new testament writers, referred to the church as "saints". I am not Mormon. Personally., I see every person's spiritual experience, is a bit different, and each one's walk, a little or a lot different. I don't think most "Christians, really know their Bibles much, or know themselves or the Christ they profess, much, at all! I don't think all these hundreds, and hundreds of denominations are Almighty God's best effort, to "save the world, for Jesus"! Maybe he is NOT trying desperately to call, or save every one now. Maybe, only a small number, through the ages, as "firstfruits", to rule, with Christ, after His return, to save the world, and all of humanity who ever lived, since Adam, resurrected , in the great "fall harvest" second resurrection, for their first real chance for salvation. If God, and Jesus, though He died for all, is DESPERATELY trying to get everyone saved, since Adam, and Eve, then Satan, has won, hands down, and God is the universe'biggest loser! Could it be, that God has barely begun, that, he has not yet begun, to CALL, the masses, since Adam?? |Something to read, and think about, REV. 20-21:1-3. Thanks for letting me share.

Never2tall: I think the thing that both believers in Christ and those who do not yet believe have in common is that we're flawed human beings. Sinners, all of us. But as a sinner who is now saved by "G-R-A-C-E" (God's Riches at Christ's Expense), my soulmate will be one who has also been overwhelmed by God's life-changing love...and has a great understanding at how costly my sin and theirs truly is. What comes along with that is a desire to turn from sin and allow God to work in and through us to change our own lives as well as the lives of others. I'm a work in progress...will be my whole life. But could not connect with someone that has not already had this life altering experience - that changes your life focus and purpose forever. It DOES make it tougher,however, to find your soulmate. Many men I meet call themselves "Christian", but it appears to be more a label they wear as a result of a particular type of church they attend, rather than a life-changing experience that they have had with Christ.

Proverbs 31, I am not disagreeing with you. Ecclesiastes 12:13, Soloman came to this conclusion, at the end of his life-"Fear God, and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person." NASB, and we are to do all for the glory of God. But, there was not one truly converted Christian, on earth, in Jesus day. He only had unconverted humans, to fellowship with, until the disciples were called. God is not desperately calling every person on earth, at the same time. Each, in his, or her own time, as He opens their minds, and hearts. I have had to live with housemates, who want nothing to do with Christianity, or the Bible, and, it does take a lot of LONGSUFFERING. I did not get to date women, until I was almost 28 yrs old. My first interest, a new Christian, killed herself, with pills. All of the women, I have dated, recently, whether professing Christ, or not, say, they have no desire, to date, or marry again, having been through divorce. I have not seen much difference, between those professing Christ, and of those who don't. "You shall know them by their fruits", not so much, their words, amd lonsuffering, is a fruit of the spirit. I have had to learn lonsuffering, with unbielievers, and, when we do, we are becoming a little more like God, lonsuffering, for the ages.I acceipt your poit, and don't really disagree.

2TallGary: I agree with you that there are WONDERFUL people who do not yet know Christ as their saviour. A lot of people have biblical values...even if they may not KNOW that they're biblical values. However, Christ is not a PART of my life, he IS my life. And, to marry someone who would just "tolerate" my beliefs would not be the type of kindred spirit that would interest me. Would want someone who has experienced the transforming love of Christ...that impacts his everyday life and relationships. And...who is in a growing relationship with Christ. THAT's a guy that I could hook up with.

Good comments by all.I differ from, most Christians, in this, as I am in a small, sabbath observing branch of Christianity, which has almost no single ladies. I have dated Jews, and all sorts of Christians, and some in between. There are principles, that,non-church folks CAN share, such as, the ten commandments, the golden rule, the 12 steps. Remember , Jesus said we are to be "lights", not,horns. So many people talk about Jesus today, but, "you shall know them by thrir fruits. I agree, it is best, to date, and marry someone, with at least similar beliefs, in God, and Jesus, but, there are some, who have Judeo-Christian values, who don't go to a church, or synagogue, yet. Being kindred spirits, even, outside of spiritual beliefs, is very good, too. Not all believers, are a match, as many of us have found, but, you all are right, in that it is best, to be both believers, and, tolerance, helps, too. Thanks.

Commitment, Honor and Respect, I believe I understand to be what God provides His children to be the core necessities of any marriage, where the man and woman agree to place anything/everything they have to face that remotely challenges their relationship at the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ.
This is only possible when the two are equally yoked ? both believing in Jesus Christ, having both accepted Him as their personal Lord, Master and Savior. When it comes to true Christianity, there is no fence to ride - you are either in or out!
I pray regularly and faithfully for that one woman God has set aside for me to be my companion, best friend, sister-in-Christ, wife, lover and everything else He has in store for us to be as individuals and as a couple seeking to follow His guidance, direction and leading over our own. I also pray God, in Jesus' name, by His Holy Spirit, prepares me/us for that relationship, and keeps us close when we do meet, for the rest of our days.

What a BIG surprise that I'm the first person to respond to your blog! :) I agree with the "equal yoking". "How can two walk together unless they agree?". I think good marriages are a rarity these days, and shared core values are at least one key to success, though not the only factor.
