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.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.Question: "Is it right for a Christian to date or marry a non-Christian?" Answer: For a Christian, dating a non-Christian is unwise, and marrying one is not an option.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.The same is true of two people who marry but don't share a common faith.While many start off with intentions of finding a godly partner, with each passing year the waiting feels longer and the hoping gets harder.

Rather, I’ll cut to the chase and zone in on those of you caught up in one of the more deceptive, yet prevalent sin in the dating world. It feels so right, and you have every excuse in the world to continue.

Like the oxen pulling in different directions, a couple who doesn't share a Godly foundation will clash and experience conflict.
