I married an Atheist...and I'm a Christian!
Wow, there are plenty of warnings in the Big Book of Life that say that a "Christian" should not be yoked with an unbeliever.
Lets discuss this concept.
I just got married on 7-21-06, and I yoked myself with an Atheist. I was confronted with the question: "why would you marry somebody that will challenge your belief system every day?"
I have been a Christian for 11 years. I am yoked with an Atheist. This decision has brought some mental turmoil for me due to the fact that I KNOW how God feels about this...he was pretty clear about it in the Bible. Also, my family has not completely stood behind my decision to be with an Atheist, even though they admire and love my husband.
Although my spiritual situation is not ideal, I admire my spouse for his years of great effort and exploration to finally arrive to this solid conclusion. I would rather be with an Atheist who is sure about his spiritual stance (there is no stance), than a person who labels themselves as "Christian", but doesn't go to church (or know God for that matter); or is a "Christian", but molests children; or a "Christian", but beats his wife before Sunday service.
....I'm sure you get my point!!!!
I have fallen in love with the person that I married as a "whole". I accept him for the marvelous person that he is! I accept our differences: for example, our brains are wired differently. He is a scientific brain and I'm an artistic brain. He can't believe in God because there is no "Scientific Basis" or logical evidence for this system. I can believe because of personal experience with God. What makes me different from an Atheist? After all, I would not believe in God if He didn't make Himself real to me!
My only hope is that I do not have to suffer because of the decision I've made to be with an Atheist husband.
