Question 436

By: Robert Serreyn

Question? Is a Christian or a Minister allowed to continue to preach or teach if their spouse REFUSES to serve the Lord?


YES, just because the spouse IS or HAS BECOME unfaithful DOES NOT influence the Lord to SO CALL “Take Out” that “Faithful” christian from serving him.

The Scriptures states in Romans 11:29

For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

The Lord DOES NOT “Change his Mind” when it comes to serving him, if he has called someone to be a Pastor, Evangelist, Missionary, or a Sunday School Teacher that is where he wants them and nobody else if he wanted someone else the Lord would have called them instead.

Those that DISAGREE with the ABOVE STATED “Quickly Quote” 1 Timothy 3:4, and 5 which states…

One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (5) (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

They THROW OUT “Common Sense” and this is the SAME CROWD that says that a Christian CANNOT get remarried if their Wife or Husband divorces them for UNBIBLICAL REASONS that is just garbage.

There is an old saying that states “If it makes common sense then seek no other sense” and that makes “PERFECT SENSE” in my thinking.

In Conclusion:

Satan WILL TRY to use unsaved people or carnal christians to DISCOURAGE the Faithful christian Husband, Wife or Friend from serving the Lord and “Often Times” SADLY it will be those from their own family or household.

But remember that the scriptures state…

2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.

The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.

-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8

-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24

-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9

“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
