A man decided he was ready to marry but wasn't willing for his bride to be anybody. He had high ideals in this day and age but wondered if he should settle for someone that is not so high maintenance. He figured he could change her according to what he wanted seeing that woman is made for man. So he began his search. He came upon a woman who claimed Christianity but didn't know much about the Word of God only what pastors taught. He waited and watched how she behaved with certain issues and knew she would be ideal for his wife.
At first he seemed very sincere with how much he had grown to love her then he changed. It was ever so slight. He knew that she wasn't that knowledgeable about the Word so decided to teach her. His teachings consisted of him talking for hours. She was losing interest in the bible class and he feared that she was also losing interest in him. He then planned to gradually become affectionate with her to see how she would respond. His plan worked so well that intimacy was the result. Although initially he was pleased that he still held her interest, his mind bothered him knowing he committed fornication and she was a virgin. He also knew she was not interested in marriage having completed her first year of college and beginning the second. So he tried to change her mind.
"It is quickly approaching the end of the year," he began while they were on a date, "and we did something so wrong in the sight of God. I am free and clear because I wasn't a virgin but if Jesus comes right now and we aren't married , YOU will go to hell." He waited to get the reaction and response he hoped for.
"See to it that no one carries you off as spoil or makes you yourselves captive by his so-called philosophy and intellectualism and vain deceit (idle fancies and plain nonsense), following human tradition (men's ideas of the material rather than the spiritual world), just crude notions following the rudimentary and elemental teachings of the universe and disregarding [the teachings of] Christ (the Messiah) Colossians 2:8 AMP."
