While many start off with intentions of finding a godly partner, with each passing year the waiting feels longer and the hoping gets harder.Slowly, we can find ourselves starting to second-guess our original standards, wondering if we've been too extreme or unrealistic.As things moved forward, I continued to try to pry into spiritual conversations directed at his beliefs, whereas most conversations were a bit one-sided.He would always say he believed in God, but I felt a deep uncertainty that I, very unfortunately, feared and avoided.Clearly this broke his heart, as it's broken mine, but I know in my mind that this is too important to ignore, even if my emotions want to keep an attachment.Right now we are on somewhat of a "break," just a period of time to step back and figure out things.
What you must decide is who you will obey: your heart or your Lord.
He says he will try to read the Bible and seek that faith, but I am at a loss.
I told him I didn't feel comfortable marrying someone unless he loved the Lord more than he loved me.
You did say you tried to encourage spiritual conversations with your boyfriend, including talking about the Lord and the Bible, and that when he visited, he would go to church with you.
But all of these things, while commendable, aren't necessarily evidence of saving faith.
If Christ is Lord, then you must marry only a man who is committed to faithfully following Christ.
