Hello, I am a young British-born Christian from Germany. I have been a Christian all my life although I have many atheist friends (including my girlfriend).
I accept evolution theory and I am thinking to study biology. I decided to join after reading some interesting debates in the Outer Court.

Not sure how to post things and join chat, tho.

Someone told me I need 5 posts or something.

So, a brief introduction. I was born in Scotland from Scottish parents, but moved to Germany at a very young age. Therefore, my German is much better than my English.

This year I need to decide what to study at the college. I am very interested in science, but I cannot decide between physics, astronomy or biology.

Almost all my friends are non believers. Sometimes, I have big problems to counter their arguments. Hope to find some help and inspiration here. I also know all their arguments and their weakness, which gives me a certain advantage when debating them.

My girlfriend is also an atheist, but it is not a big problem for our relationship. Actually, we both love to debate God. Deciding where to go to vacation is a bigger source of fights, lol.

Oh dear, maybe I should have split this post into different ones....

God bless...

Stuart (my real name).

In reading more on this thread... Is it really not a big problem to have an atheist girlfriend? The Bible speaks of this:

2 Cor. 6:14-15
14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?

Prov. 4:23
Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.


1 Cor. 15:33
Do not be deceived: 'Evil company corrupts good habits.'


Food for thought: How could a quality marriage be built and maintained if you disagree on the most crucial issue in the universe—the Lord Jesus Christ?

Praying.

God bless,
GE

Hi GoldenEagle,

I don't think it is a problem.

Corinthians 7 is actually pretty explicit about marriage. At least the word husband and wife have a more clear-cut significance than "yoked together".

7:12 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.

7:13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.

7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.

Welcome Stuart.

The Scriptures you quoted from Corinthians are addressing those who accepted Christ while already married. Scripture is clear that marrying an unbeliever will bring us nothing but hurt. However, you have free will and a right to ignore this cautioning, of course.

Welcome Stuart.

The Scriptures you quoted from Corinthians are addressing those who accepted Christ while already married.


Can you provide scriptural evidence that this is the case?

I don't think you can. If you could, then the Bible would admit that you can be a Christian at a certain point of time and then lose your salvation later. So, either salvation is not permanent or the Bible is contradictory. I am not ready to follow this path.

Much simpler to admit what Paul writes, black on white. And I doubt that Paul would write things which do not correspond to the will of our Lord.

In Christ

Stu
