Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?Thank you for your response. We have been seeing our pastor for counseling for a few months now and I agree that discipleship/accountability is necessary. I'm glad that I came back to view this thread today. I found out this week that my husband has been engaging in an online friendship with a woman who calls him baby. He has been talking to her for two hours a day for three months now after I go to sleep. If I had just done better at trying to get past my trust issues, maybe this wouldn't have happened. He says that I pushed him away. I can honestly say that I tried, but I definitely wasn't perfect. Please pray for us and our children.
The only problem with marriage is disobedience to the Word of God. Nobody reverences and follows the Word, so no results come. It's just consoling and praying, praying, praying, but nothing will change.
If a Husband is called a Brother in the lord, then you have clear instruction. We always want Help from God, but if one spouse is not willing to do what the Lord said do, then the children are even in danger. For the Children are sanctified by the believing parent. Someone has to believe and obey.
I never understand why someone called a Christians is willing to allow a satanic spirit to operate in their home. Not only is porn the dinner bell for all kinds of evil, but deception and lying is also straight from hell itself. We don't tell our children there is a Santa Clause for example, lying is the wrong spirit, and so will your kids learn to lie also.
Our God is an amazing God, healing all manner of disease, giving victory in every situation, but He is also a not to be taken lightly as fear of the Lord is beginning of Wisdom.
