I agree with Aceofspades because it clearly states that if a nonbeliever chooses to marry a believer and follows the rules of marriage and is faithful and loves their partner unconditionally then yes they should not divorce them. The first thing is to find out who is the dominator and the submissive one. We all strive for a 50/50 relationship but the truth ...

1 Corinthians 11:
23 For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, 24and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body,
i.e., the body of Jesus
which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 25In the same way also he took the cup, ...
1 Corinthians 15:
All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
I don't think Paul meant this as describing modern scientific biological taxonomy.
And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon ...
“Could Genesis 6:12 be referring to a dramatic physical/biological change, violating God's 4 categories? Perhaps mixing or altering the physical traits of creation?”
You ask an intriguing question. One that is difficult to verify scripturally. The reason it is difficult is because of the traditional interpretation of this period of time.
Genesis 6:4 talks ...
3 And the Lord said: My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 7 And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 11 ...
As some already said.
The first resurrection is anyone that dies as a Christian Christ saves,
and goes through the tribulation maintaining their faith to the Real Christ. They didn't take the mark of the beast because that can strip you of your Salvation. Its called apostasy by deception. 2 Thessalonians 2.
The second is one chance given to people who did ...
Dottard's answer is definitive. Here, I'll supplement a little.
1 Cor 13:
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of these is love.
All three are essential. Comparatively speaking, love is the greatest.
1 Corinthians 13:
2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith,...
It appears that we need the trio of Christian virtues:
1 Cor 13:13 - And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love; but
the greatest of these is love.
These same three essential virtues are repeated elsewhere as well:
Col 1:5 - the faith and love proceeding from the hope stored up for you in heaven, of which you have already heard in the word of truth,...
While Melchizedek's prophetic declaration: "possessor of Heaven and Earth" refers to God most high, however, it is also a powerful prophetic declarative blessing upon Abraham, the faithful and humble servant of the most-high God, whom God is pleased to make his "seed" the heir of all things in Christ Jesus. So it's very correct to say ...
1 Cor 15:27-28
For "He has put in subjection all things under his feet." But when it may be said that all things have been put in subjection, it is evident that the One having put in subjection all things to him is excepted. BLB
For “God has put everything under His feet.” Now when it says that everything has been put under him, this clearly does ...
If 1 Cor 13:8 & 9 are taken as an argument for cessationism, then we have the following possibilities and consequences:
That these are only rhetorical example of the totality of spiritual gifts in which case, ALL spiritual gifts ceased with the apostolic era including wisdom, faith (1 Cor 12:8), the distinguishing of spirits (1 Cor 12:10, contra, 1 John ...
Where did this translation of 1 Corinthians 12:31 - 13:8 originate?
Doing a Google search for the phrase "If I have all the eloquence of men or of angels" led me to a parallel bible verse comparison page from BibleGateway. This page shows only three instances of the word "eloquence":

It's frustrating when answers major on the time when Christ delivers the Kingdom to God the Father, instead of answering your question as to what 'delivering over' means. This question requires understanding of what the Kingdom is, and what Christ's kingship amounts to, and whether the 'delivering over' conflicts in any way with who the Father and the Son ...
The surrounding verses give the answer. Paul expressed disappointment that he could not delve with these Christians into the deeply spiritual things of God. Why not? He tells us:
"And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as
unto carnal, as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and
not with meat: for hitherto ye were ...
