I have a question: Can I use believer and unbeliever as an adj? For example, "believer family" means my family members believe in God. Is this OK?

    It sounds a bit strange to me, Dennis.

    But then, I'm not a believer.

    Perhaps it works for those who are.

    I can't readily think of a context in which you could use "believer" as an adjective. A "believer family" certainly doesn't work. :(
