A Christian Finding A Non-Christian Life Partner?? + Not Having Babies Due To Finance??

Recently, I had a conversation with a friend regarding relationship.
She happens to be attracted to a non-Christian guy.
I recommended to her not to get attached to him first unless that guy accepts Christ first.
She quoted 1 Corinthians 7:16 as she really wanted to get attached to him.
However, I then explained this verse to her.

1 Cor 7:12-16
In this instance, the couples had actually been married first before Paul came.
When Paul came and preached to them, let’s say only the wife accepted Christ.
The husband then would either accept or object the wife’s decision.
If the husband did not mind, the wife was to stay married with him; no divorce as there was a chance for the wife to win the husband for God.
If the husband really rejected and wanted divorce, Paul advised the wife to go with the divorce.

I then SMS-ed her, telling that a Christian should never even get attached to a non-Christian (2 Cor 6:14).
Otherwise, he/she will not be fruitful for God: less passionate about God.
In fact, I believe he/she will then eventually disobey God in other areas too.

Well, regardless of whether she likes him or not,
I only pray that that guy will accept Christ one day…

An article in TR Emeritus shows a survey result done by “I Love Children” organization.
http://www.tremeritus.com/2012/10/06/survey-50-couples-not-have-babies-because-money-no-enough/

Apparently, 50% couple choose not to have kids because of insufficient income.
That’s a big news.

Pastor Kong has been teaching the members to confess God’s Word.
When it comes to finance, he encouraged the members to confess times  and again
“Money will come. Money will come. Money will come.”

Amen for that. I confess it too.
In addition to that, I firmly believe children are blessing from God (Ps 127:3).
In Indonesian, there is this saying “Banyak anak banyak rezeki” which means “more kids more blessing”.
Well, I am still single. So, what do I confess?

Money will come.
Girlfriend will come.
Wife will come.
Many kids will come
(repeat it 3 times daily)

Amen for that!
