This rubs people the wrong way, because no matter how respectful, sweet, or “loving” an unbelieving partner is, he is at odds with Christ – he is in rebellion. Therefore, those of us in Christ cannot be in a harmonious, God-pleasing relationship with an unbeliever.
But if we call ourselves Christians, we’re saying we believe the Bible is our final authority. There is no fellowship between light and darkness (2 Cor. The Greek word for “fellowship” in this passage literally means God knows this. Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? -15) No relationship apart from Christ can be truly “good” (Mark ).
This might sound harsh, but I promise you it’s a standard worth implementing.
(Proverbs 3:6)The Bible is pretty clear when it comes to this topic.
Perhaps the Israelites felt like there weren’t enough women, or there weren’t enough men to go around.
However they rationalized it, the Israelites formed covenants between themselves and people who neither knew nor served God. Over and over in Scripture we see this theme repeated.
That’s why he took the time to explain more than we love our own desire for a relationship. This is a call to reconsider your view of God and dating.Rather, it is a command designed for protection and honor.Being unequally yoked is more dangerous than you think – and waiting for someone with whom you share the same spiritual heritage is far more rewarding than many believe. In it, she said she didn’t think God cared about who she dated or married – He had bigger things to worry about. God has always cared about the unions His people make – as evidenced by His relationship with Israel.You’d be surprised to know how many Christians date someone with opposing religious views, all in hopes of converting them in the near future.I understand that God can use all things to work together for the good of those who are in Christ, but I cannot help but wonder if God would encourage a relationship that is unequally yoked. I’m not ignorant enough to think that God hasn’t used an unequally yoked couple for His good, but I will still fall on the side of discouraging relationships where both parties aren’t on the same spiritual page. (Proverbs 16)Your relationship with God should always be put above your relationship with anyone else, and that includes your future spouse.God cares about our relationships because He care about He cares about our purity because that is what keeps us in relationship with Him!
