This isn’t just an abstract concept for them; it’s a real issue.Many have probably been told by someone in the church that it’s wrong, it’s bad and they shouldn’t do it. But they want to be in a relationship and there is nothing wrong with that.The New Testament goes as far as to warn us not even to eat with idolaters (1 Corinthians ). Bad company corrupts good morals" ( The Bible is actually much more direct about marrying unbelievers than has been indicated to this point.The Old Testament specifically forbids God's people from marrying "foreign wives": "Now therefore, make confession to the LORD God of your fathers and do His will; and separate yourselves from the peoples of the land and from the foreign wives." ( So, the New Testament makes it clear that believers are only to marry fellow believers.Modern translations remove the "yoke" and translate the intent of the verse, warning believers, "Do not be bound together with unbelievers." Does this apply to marriage?I have received a few emails from Christians (and even one from a non-Christian) asking if it is okay for a Christian to date or marry an unbeliever.
A "yoke" was a farm implement that bound two animals together so that they could work together as a team.Often Christians are in a church with an uneven number of single Christian guys and girls.They want to be in a relationship, or already like a non-Christian, and wonder if it’s wise to date them.Since an unbeliever doesn't believe in God, to him everything is an idol, including his relationship with you.Included in the list of idols are sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed. Likewise, the joining of a Christian and a non-Christian joins Christ to an unbeliever.
There is a special case where a person marries an unbeliever while himself/herself are, likewise, an unbeliever, and only later to become a believer.
