I am not married to a non Christian, but am seriously considering doing so. Most Christians bring up 2 Cor 6:14 (unequally yoked) that it is disobedience and sin against God. However, it is my opinion that in 2 Cor 6:14 (when taken in context and looking at the Greek), Paul is actually referring to Christians living in Corinth and pagan temple practices and that Paul is not directly referring to marriage, but talking in general terms. Naturally, I see that there could be many complications with such a marriage such as child raising. And as a whole it does seem unwise in most instances, but I cannot find where the Bible specifically says it is a sin. We do go to church together and because he was at one time a Christian we can discuss many Christian things and he even encourages me if I have had a bad day using Scriptures. He also respects my beliefs and tells me I should pray if I am dealing with a situation. He has also stated that he will NEVER return to God that he has chosen to remain agnostic, which is heartwrenching.
I have an issue because my past relationship with a Christian minister was horrible. In fact, I was once a full time missionary. I met this minister in seminary, and he became extremely violent. Coming from such a horrible situation, the non Christian issue does not seem so bad to me. We love each other dearly and respect each other and he is extremely moral and kind.
I am not looking for approval, but what I am looking for is to hear about real experiences from those who know people or are in a spiritually mixed relationships themselves. I would greatly appreciate any insight you could give me. I am praying about the situation and I know it is ultimately a decision only I can make. Thank you for taking the time to read through this long post.
