Hi Ray,

Thanks for your great site with lots of inspiring and
clarifying words!

   I have a question regarding marriage. If we are not
> part of a church, how does one get married? What does
> the Bible say about marriage in regard to the ceremony
> that is declaring a couple as husband and wife? What
> is the Biblical way to get married? Does one need a
> priest to give God's blessing over the union?

> Also, what about marriages where one of the parts is
> an agressor and treating the spouse in a destructive
> way with either physical or mental violence? I don't
> know what is right in these situations, when there is
> violence or abuse involved. My immediate reaction
> would be that a divorce or separation would be the
> best, if the agression doesn't end. I know that the
> general opinion is that divorce is not an alternative.
> However, I'm not sure about what is right to do in

Dear Eirik:

I get asked similar questions on a regular basis. It takes too long to answer these involved situations for me to rewrite my answers over and over dozens of times. Right now I have 471 emails that are waiting to be answered. If I gave each one the time needed to answer thoroughly with Scriptural references, it would take me a whole year. Then I would have many thousands of unanswered emails waiting to be answered in the following ten years. See the problem?  I will write a short paper on this subject when I have finished other projects such as my Lake of Fire Series.

God be with you,


PS   Sometimes divorce IS a Scriptural option.

Hello Ray,

Thank you, I really wasn't expecting an answer, I
perfectly understand your email and time "problem". :)

Reading your last article "Praying by God's Rules" I
learned that electronic mail is something that takes
up a great deal of your life. :)

Thanks be to God for what you are doing through Being given understanding about the
simple truth that God is in control of EVERYTHING, as
opposed to running an emergency operation, really gave
me peace.

God bless you!
