Kind of a Drag: Being Unequally Yoked in Marriage
2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1
|2 Corinthians 6 (NKJV™)|
|14||Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?|
|15||And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?|
|16||And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people."|
|17||Therefore "Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you."|
|18||"I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the LORD Almighty."|
|2 Corinthians 7 (NKJV™)|
|1||Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.|

Those in unequally yoked marriage often find themselves in a difficult situation. A marriage between a Christian and someone who does not yet know the Lord can bring anguish, discomfort and frustration. Is "missionary dating" okay? Why are these marriages prohibited by scripture? Is there hope for believers who feel trapped in unequally yoked marriages? These are issues addressed in this message, where we'll learn that unequally yoked marriages are "Kind of a Drag."
