The same is true of two people who marry but don't share a common faith.
Like the oxen pulling in different directions, a couple who doesn't share a Godly foundation will clash and experience conflict.
Don’t disobey God and wait patiently for the Lord.3.
Following Christ is the most important decision you'll ever make. Choosing a mate who shares your faith and who will support you in your spiritual growth.
Marriage based on a common faith is for our benefit, blessing and protection. Make the decision to follow Him and allow Him to help you find the right mate for you.
In 2 Corinthians , the Apostle Paul says that believers should not "be unequally yoked with non-believers." While it's true that this passage does not specifically mention marriage, it does refer to being bound in a relationship with another person—no relationship is more binding than marriage.
The picture of two oxen bound (or yoked) together is often used to explain this Scripture. Otherwise, they will fight with one another and experience exhaustion.
Dating an unbeliever can hinder your relationship with Christ.
Don’t think you will change that person later on in life because that rarely happens and only makes things worse. He loves you and does not want you to be one flesh with a person that won’t accept his son. An ungodly husband or an ungodly wife cannot do God’s will in marriage. 1 Corinthians But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. I want to also remind you this, don’t date someone just because they go to church because many people who say they’re Christians are not truly Christians. If you were thinking about dating a non-Christian don’t.You probably think nothing will happen, it doesn’t matter, you know better than God, but you’re wrong.Perhaps you're not convinced yet, and you wonder, Even well-meaning Christians can fall into the trap of marrying non-believers.
The most important piece of advice is that saying he knows Christ doesn't mean he has a relationship with Him.
