Bring It On-Line: Undefiled Marriage Bed

My wife and I have been happily married for seven years, but we have run into a problem. I know the Bible says that "the marriage bed be undefiled," but my next door neighbors who are also Christians want to wife-swap for an evening. ... Read Transcript


ANYHOW, IT IS TIME FOR SOME

QUESTIONS.

AND HERE IS THE FIRST ONE

FROM ONE OF OUR VIEWERS WHO

E-MAILED US: "MY WIFE AND I

HAVE BEEN HAPPILY MARRIED

FOR SEVEN YEARS.

BUT WE'VE RUN INTO A

PROBLEM.

I KNOW THE BIBLE SAYS THE

MARRIAGE SHOULD BE

UNDEFIABLE.

MY NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR, WHO

IS ALSO A CHRISTIAN, WANTS

TO WIFE SWAP FOR AN

EVENING.

IS THIS IN LINE WITH WHAT

GOD WANTS FOR OUR MARRIAGE?

AND HOW SHOULD I TALK TO MY

NEIGHBOR ABOUT IT?"

Pat: YOU TELL YOUR

NEIGHBOR, HAVING SEX WITH

SOMEBODY WHO IS NOT YOUR

WIFE IS CALLED ADULTERY, AND

IT IS THE SEVENTH

COMMANDMENT, THOU SHALT NOT

COMMIT ADULTERY.

AND TELL HIM, HE AND HIS

WIFE, THEY MAY THINK THEY'RE

SWINGERS, BUT THEY'RE

SINNING AGAINST GOD.

THEY'RE ON THE WRONG TRACK.

SAY NO, NO, NO.

THREE EXCLAMATION POINTS.

Wendy: "MY FAMILY AND I

ARE STRUGGLING WITH PAYING

BILLS.

I HAVE BEEN UNEMPLOYED GOING

ON FIVE YEARS.

I AM PRAYING FOR FAVOR.

HOW COME MY FAVOR STILL HAS

NOT COME AND MY FAMILY IS

STILL SUFFERING," CHARLES

WANTS TO KNOW.

Pat: CHARLES, BUDDY, I

THINK YOU'VE GOT TO GET OFF

THE COUCH AND GET OUT AND DO

SOMETHING.

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'RE

PRAYING FOR FAVOR.

GO LOOK AT I WASN' AN

OPPORTUNITY.

YOU MAY HAVE TO START LOW,

FLIPPING BURGERS AT BURGER

KING ARE YOU MAY HAVE TO BE

DOING A SURVEY FOR A

TELEPHONE COMPANY.

PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR

JOBS.

IF YOU'RE NOT QUALIFIED,

STOP LOOKING FOR,

QUOTE,"FAVOR," AND LOOK AT

THE SKILLS PEOPLE NEED.

YOU CAN TAKE COURSES

ONLINE.

THERE ARE SO MANY COURSES

ONLINE THAT ARE AVAILABLE

ALMOST FOR FREE.

AND GET WITH IT.

DON'T SIT AROUND AND SAY

I'M, QUOTE,"WAITING FOR

FAVOR."

Wendy: BERNARD WRITES,

"I HAVE BEEN ABUSIVE TO MY

WIFE FOR THREE YEARS AND WAS

FINALLY ARRESTED.

IT WAS THEN THAT I

SURRENDERED TO THE LORD AND

REALIZED THAT I HELD A LOT

FROM THE PAST.

I REPENTED AND BEGAN SEEKING

THE LORD.

AND I FELL IN LOVE WITH MY

WIFE.

WE'RE BOTH GOING TO

COUNSELING, SEPARATELY, BUT

MY WIFE WANTS A DIVORCE.

SHE SAID SHE PUT HER

DECISION IN GOD'S HANDS.

WOULD GOD TELL HER TO

DIVORCE ME?"

Pat: HE MIGHT.

YOU MAY BE A PAIN IN THE

NECK AND IT IS TIME TO GET

RID OF YOU.

ACTUALLY, GOD SAYS, I HATE

DIVORCE.

WHAT YOU MIGHT SAY TO YOUR

WIFE, HOW ABOUT A TRIAL

SEPARATION.

LET'S SEE IF WE CAN'T

SEPARATE.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THE

BIBLE THAT SAYS YOU CAN'T

SEPARATE.

AND THE SIN IS REMARRIAGE

AFTER DIVORCE, IT IS NOT

GETTING SEPARATED.

YOU CAN SAY, LET'S GET

APART, BUT I REALLY LOVE

YOU.

AND LET'S SEE IF WE CAN'T

KINDLE OUR RELATIONSHIP.

AND I'VE DONE HORRIBLE

THINGS AND I'M SORRY, AND

GOD HAS FORGIVEN ME AND I

ASK YOU TO FORGIVE ME.

ALL RIGHT.

Wendy: I BELIEVE WE ARE

ALL OUT OF TIME.

Pat: THANK YOU FOR

THOSE QUESTIONS.

THERE ARE SOME TREMENDOUS

QUESTIONS COMING IN.

WE'RE TRYING TO TAKE THEM

THE NEXT DAY AFTER THEY COME

ON THE INTERNET.

SO AS YOU SEND THEM ON THE

INTERNET, WE DON'T HAVE A

BACKLOG NOW.

BUT WE'RE ONLY ABLE TO TAKE

FOUR OR FIVE QUESTIONS.
