This happens before, during
or after reading the Gospel. A person feels an intense pull towards
Christ. This can be light and kind or very intense and strong. All
these people have in common that Christ calls them, each in their own way.
As far as I know, they always respond with "Yes".
this 'yes response', they do what is required to enter the Church of Christ:
- get married, if they are going to be married; then baptize in to the
Church of Christ and follow his commandments all the days of their lives.

not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.
CO1 7: 13 And
the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased
to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
CO1 7: 14 For
