Spousal Salvation

Category:  Ask Deepak

Question:

My wife is Christian, and I love her, but she doesn’t accept that I believe in other philosophies, every time I show her a different concept about something revealed to me, if it is different of Christian dogma , she rejects it and gets sad and sometimes we fight. I choose not to tell her about my beliefs because I see that it becomes a problem that I cannot handle, because she thinks that I am lost.and her sadness is about not being saved. I don’t like see her sad....any advice?


Response:

It seems your wife is content with the spiritual teachings she has already and is not looking for anything more right now. That is fine and if you understand and respect that, you can continue your spiritual quest without trying to urge her along in your direction. I understand that as you discover new and inspiring ideas, it is the natural and loving thing to want to share these gifts and experiences with your life partner. But it’s clear that if feels threatening and worrying to her right now, so the loving thing to do is to acknowledge that her own path, even if it’s different from yours, is perfect for her needs. Reassure her that your interest in other spiritual traditions and ideas will not jeopardize your salvation in any way, but in fact will only strengthen your spiritual destiny and connection to the divine.

Love,
Deepak

  • Yes, it is everybody`s goal to find the `ultimate truth` inside and everything you experience is a `lesson` towards it. What religion and also science is constantly forgetting is that it is an individual goal and no two persons are the same. As long as we are convinced that our own findings should also be the findings of someone else, we have lessons to learn.....

  • There are many different worldviews here in the 21st century. It,s interesting to investigate the major ones and what portrait each one paints upon the life canvas . www.21stcenturyconfusion.com

  • Everybody does have different believes in different religions but if she doesn`t want to listen to any reasoning of your believes, it can damage the relationship by different believes. Therefore, do share with her in bits and pieces but change the style you share maybe one day she might be able to understand one day .. just use a more convincing way to make her understand .

  • I am dealing with same issues.its going to take sometime for your wife to adjusf with your new belief.it`s seems to me that you have a spiritual mind and your wife have a religious mindset. This is a major differences. A spiritual minset person is somone. Who sees things with the eyes of faith or intuiation. A religious mindset person is someone who sees things as it is which is seeing with their natural eyes. The hard part is, it`s best not to say much if you think it going to destroy your marriage. Keep religious and spiritual conversation sample and short. If she ask any opnion on spiritual truth, think and respond with an accurate answer.your intuition will you with that. Try your best not to look arrogant but be truthful and boldly. When she is in the process of adjust to the true essence of reality which the true essence of things, take baby step with her. High spiritual truth can choke her.take it really slow. Good luck!

  • Love how you answered that Deepak! Fighting any kind of natural spiritual feelings will only lead you to be confused. Accept then take each step as it comes to you. Convincing anyone of your beliefs will only leave both of your unsatisfied and upset. Go with the flow and let the natural shift happen inside of you gradually... Who knows, perhaps both of you will meet in middle ground and perhaps learn from each other at the same time.

  • Sometimes all you can do is follow your beliefs without sharing them with the people you love. If those beliefs make a positive change for you people you love are going to notice that and ask to introduce to them what you have learned. Maybe she is not ready yet to accept other philosophies and receive new informations and you can`t make her to accept them.

  • I thing talking about religion is about RESPECT . We all have to respect what people believe because each one of us has a way to go and we, ourselves known what the way our heart and soul need to be. So, if we have RESPECT the people choices we can get along with everybody and that is no necessary to hide anything because we have the RESPECT about ourselves.

  • Yes, perfect. And try showing her the message of Jesus through the Urantia Book. It is a more full and clear account of the teachings of Jesus. Show her paper 140.

  • I like the response, but still considder Deepak Chopra a dishonest nutcase. Raised as a Lutheran myself, I married an agnostic, a Catholic and a Muslim converted Christian. Mahatma said: like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ." Now there was a guy who saw through things.

  • My understanding of this post is not that he is trying to convert his wife but that she is not accepting of what he believes. Having seen this close up and personal, I know that the person who believes they're right and the other is wrong can cause a host of difficulties for their partner. This note didn't suggest he felt that way but his mate did.

  • Most people will be SO very surprised the day they die. There's NO religion what so ever on the other side. Jesus is a great inspiration for me, but he was not Christian and he did not found Christianity. Others did. . . in his name. Today he is Master Sananda and LOVE is still his only religion.

  • Riuscire a pensare l'altro come "anche più meritevole di me"nella sua ricerca ,non solo religiosa,ma di qualsiasi tipo :umana,politica,spirituale, è davvero la più grande delle conquiste a cui si possa e si debba tendere. Vale la pena di cercare di uscire dalla propria singola logica; non è l'unica che esista

  • I have the same issue with my Mother. It's really hard to deal with her telling me that I'm going to hell and that I am a lost soul. I've tried to explain to her that this is not the case and that we are on different spiritual paths but it still stings a bit when she says it.

  • It is extremely difficult to reason with a fundamentalist christian and help them see that you are not lost. It is practice to still love them. A scripture that may help is "God is not willing that any should perish."

  • As a spiritual person, I certainly can understand the husband's point of view...and I actually think there is no other best way to handle this. BUT, most Christians are very single-minded and will continue to believe he is "lost" or "damned".

  • I have remained a practising catholic, grateful for the grounding in faith. However, my interest in spirituality in all its forms has grown & continues to expand as I seek for explanations and answers to the questions arising from the many concepts and beliefs that exist. I agree that we all have different paths to tread in our search for God.

    Christine Donegan // 2013-01-16 08:24:04 // //
  • The devil is a liar.... the only way into heaven is confessing with your tongue and believing in your heart that Jesus is lord and he died to save us. We most be born again. People seek God's kingdom by growing closer the whole world needs to know the truth.... we are destroying his earth and ourselves by allowing satan to blind us. Your wife is right exploring other religions is worshipping idols...the bible tells us that There is only one true God and he gave forth his son to die for our sins so that we may be saved.... don't curse your generations to come... your wife has the right belief explore with her.

  • I didn t feel he was trying to impose his beliefs on his wife, I felt he had the need to share them with her, instead of keeping his beliefs as a secret...it might be uncomfortable not to be able to show who you really are to your life partner. I guess he could try, through love and respect, to make her understand that he respects her choice and religious path and would like her to understand his. Acceptance (from both sides) might be needed.

  • I returned to the church of my childhood (Catholic) after much spiritual seeking. It is right for me. On the other hand someone else's relationship with God is their own business not mine. I am completely unthreatened by other's beliefs or seeking. To each their own. God has many ways of reaching us all.

    Thurston Overberg // 2013-01-16 04:10:47 // //
  • Thank you for asking this & also, thank you for the answer. I was raised in what I believe was a very conservative Christian family. My father was a very devout man. As I grew older, I saw inconsistencies in my own organized Religion. I`m Christian by default, but now I`ve discovered I am seeking "the truth" whatever that may be. However, I empathize (not sympathize, but truly empathize) as one of my youngest sister`s has recently becomed "saved" and preaches enthusiastically what she "encourages" me to do. Riddled with guilt from the past and never having felt wholly "accepted" (this may have something to do with losing our father when she was just 12), she finds this her liberation from guilt and her answer to life. I am fine with that--I`ve been there with the excitement to have Jesus as a reason to turn my life around. She is no longer partying and drinking every night (and driving home drunk occasionally). These were all problems for a while, so I am glad that is over now. However, the pang to my heart, which has been "the thorn in my side" (my own struggle with frustration, hurt, care & anger) since she got saved is the fact that she no longer heeds anything I have to say (as she did when she was the "non-religious" one in the family) & continuously "encourages" me to do and read the things she feels is the right way. I feel pushed and intruded upon when she continues to preach certain idealities despite what I`ve shared I do not believe in. It is as if she never heard me. I think the more you love someone, the more painful this can be--especially if you see that your differences cause them sadness and pain. I`ve always believed that love was the answer and even as a Christian, I suspected for the longest time that the best way to tell the true Christians from the "political" or self-righteousness driven ones is if you can see love at the base of their actions when all`s said and done. I share in your pain & will continue to hold love as my reason to share in her ways. Again, thank you for asking this. I am strengthened to see that you were courageous enough to share your separate spiritual "beliefs" with your wife as I often struggled with the decision to do so with my own two youngest sisters for fear I may hurt them.

  • Your wife is worried about the destination of your soul. While you delve into other philosophies. All I have to say is women are typically right. Most religions or philosophies only deal with the short time on earth, while Christianity primarily deals with the the well being of your soul. Engage The Bible, give it the same attention you give other philosophies. At least then yoou can say to your wife. I tried God.

  • the fun fact is, that jesus never wanted to be seen that way, christians do today. He wanted the we're see him as one of us, as our brother to walk with him together. Because he knew that we are all one. He said 'he and the father are one' and that we are all his brothers(and sisters)' and that we are all gods. Because god and we're all are one. It is all in the bible. I think the christians really should read their own book ;)

  • I have lost two(what I thought to be ) very good friends, over religion. They have been very devout in their belief system, although they did not belong to the same faith. Both eventually accused me of talking to demons when I pray, that I'm going to hell, and have tried their best to "save" me. Failing that, I was given up for lost, then rejected and abandoned. One friend said it would be too painful for her to be my friend in this life, only for me not to join her in the rapture. She ended our BFF friendship of 24 years, just like that.

  • All 'beliefs' carry at their heart a Love for our divine creator. There are so many areas we can agree upon and grow from one another...yet we focus so much on the areas of disagreement. This is the first fundamental we must change in ourselves.

  • It will difficult to live together with a Christian who feels that you are destined for eternal damnation. The Christian belief is that you are not going to be saved for eternal life unless you accept Jesus as your personal savior and ask God for forgiveness of your sins. While this could happen in the second before your death--you would still be saved--if you do not believe this, then your Christian wife would have to accept eternal life in absence of your soul as well as having to accept that everything that is in your mind is uninformed by God. Not an easy concept to swallow over time for most Christians so she will continue to try to convert you in your own best interest and hers in the name of love. You may not like it.

  • It's amusing to me how anyone who's not religious understands the acceptance concept but a religious person has that switch turned off by religion and it is almost like there is a mental fog or a blindness present in those people. There can be bright and adequate people otherwise but when it comes to spirituality it is as thought they have been drugged up. I wonder if religious texts and rituals were written to turn of the center of reasoning in a person. It is so bizarre to hear Lord is your only Savior idea coming up from otherwise intelligent person. And the thing that makes my head spin is that if you try and explain that your mind lives beyond that understanding of the divine, meaning that you have evolved beyond those concepts, they can't comprehend what you are talking about and think you are nuts. Maybe it is because you can't explain something to a person who 's mind is not ready to grasp it. In this case of course the mind is ready but is artificially turned off. If we learn how to turn it back on we will break free from all religions once and for all.

  • If two people love each other enough to not distress over such things, they CAN live in harmony. It is the individual that makes all the difference. You cannot tell somoene, "treat her this way or that way," as it might not work if religious differences are a huge issue between them. For instance, if the wife is going to keep insisting that her husband is "lost" how on earth does his compassion for her make a difference? He can "assure" her all her wants to, but if she sees this as him being deceived by the devil, there is bound to be unrest between them. This kind of thing takes real opennes, love, and faith in your own belief and in the relationship. Not everyone is ready for that.

  • People change over time. Could be they had the "equally yoked" chat prior to marriage & hubby is willing to listen & open himself to truth. it's ok to do what works for us as individuals. The wife will have a better husband if she allows him to discover God in himself. One thing I'm learning from living in the moment is that lots of things are not my business. There's no way I can be a part of any organization that puts doctrine before everything else. But that's my husbands choice at this time. We are not in the same place spiritually but we love each other. I used to be a ball of stress & now that I'm not I see him picking up my books and asking questions,

  • I feel that often as well....that people who are Christian look down on me, thinking Im "missing" something in my life, or think I am lost. When in fact, I believe myself to be way more spiritual than them and can see how I understand the world in a deeper way than they do. What I try to do is live my life as an example so that when/ if there is a situation, I can say, " I am this way ( strong, happy, etc ) BECAUSE of my beliefs.

  • Unfortunately, this is kind of a lame answer. You cannot reconcile this dispute. I grew up evangelical Christian, and they firmly believe that there is no other way into heaven than to believe in the Bible (and their interpretation of it) only. All other belief systems and philosophies are "Satan appearing as an angel of Light". If she cannot come to a resolution in her opinion about his spiritual health, then they should amicably separate.

  • Many Christians believe that Jesus is the only path to salvation and that all other paths and religions jeopardize your salvation and ability to have a relationship with God. They are then led to believe by the church leaders that any deviation from this is "backsliding" and that you have lost your way due to the devils influence in your life. I was involved with the evangelical Christian movement for two decades and know their doctrines very well but found that belief system is far too narrow as there are many paths to God; unfortunately when you're well entrenched in Christianity it takes great faith in yourself and courage to find your own voice/path as this is NOT supported/encouraged......

    Gina Ord // 2013-01-15 23:50:32 // //
  • I believe that the Holy Spirit has to open ones heart to receive Jesus Christ and in turn they will become a Christian. You can tell someone about Jesus but unless they have a desire to hear...then it's just a waste of time. Christians need to walk in love and Live as a Christian so that when one has a ear to hear, they will be willing to accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. She is genuinely concerned for what happens to him after leaving this world. The Holy Spirit will draw all men unto him and it's up to them to receive salvation. She should pray for him and trust that God will show him the truth. Until then, she just needs to show love in all areas wether he accepts Christ or not. We all must face our creator when we leave this world.

  • I would hope the wife is following the teaching of Christ, speaking the truth in love. Yes, many religions have distorted the simple truth because they accommodate it to their needs, wants, traditions, or whatever. But following the example of Christ is what we are to do. God says His word will not be mocked. Anyone who distorts it will be judged severely. But God also gives us the free will to accept Him or not, it's your choice. Just know that every choice has an affect or consequence.

Joy, peace... Kindness...justice... An end to human suffering, love,. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that God is a Christian. However, the Bible does say: God is love!

  • Sounds like a lot of opportunity for both of you to grow. Your wife has an opportunity to learn acceptance and how to let others be, and perhaps she is afraid to challenge her own beliefs so she operates out of fear. Perhaps you have some opportunity as well, as the head of the household, or head of the family ...I'm sure God has the same issue you do, getting his family to listen and to grow from the child to the more adult or mature. I think your idea of spiritual is more mature than the traditional Christian beliefs, I'm a Christian and my family doesn't understand my journey either, but it is mine and they can accept it or not... I still love them and accept them, even in their unbelief.

Only when we take out judgement can we accept other people but when a religion teaches that ALL other thoughts and philosophies are wrong, there can be no peace or acceptance between them. Unfortunately I bet he is more willing to accept her thoughts but she is not willing to accept his. Thats the rub of the religion of Christianity. I know this from years of experience.

  • I'm afraid I disagree. The Christian ideology doesn't allow for exploration of other spiritual paths. I predict that relationship will fail.

  • I think of other beliefs & practices as a way of augmenting my faith & expands the nourishment of my soul...

  • Everyone's gotta figure it out on their own, ultimately.

  • What if the relationship pulls us out of our conscious state all the time because our partner is living thru there unconsciousness?

  • I agree Deepak. I have tried to convert Christians to a more complete spirituality of monism. Even with archaeological proof they still hold on to their teachings. As the Beatles once said... "Let it Be".

  • Best advice to the husband, i think is: Say the serenity prayer & accept all beliefs All religions are mere paths leading to same goal. Ultimate goal is God, Salvation & peace. "Enlightenment" "Spirituality" "Fellowship" God Bless!

  • If she is Christian she should well know that having a relationship with the Lord is key no matter the religion one follows. Jesus likewise preached relationship not religion. God presents Himself in many and varying ways to each follower.
