Annointed Beauty Daily Devotions Ministry


Now here is the all time question. Many of us have heard the scripture quoted over and over and over again. Some of us have had it beaten over our heads by our church elders, ministers and brethren.

The verse in question is 2 Cor. 6:14

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with “UNBELIEVERS”: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”

This has been the center of controversy for quite some time. Some faiths have gone as far as to claim that “Unbelievers” are anyone who is not a member of their denomination.

That is absurd!!!!

How can a Christian be an unbeliever?

A believer is one who has accepted the Gospel of Jesus Christ and has been baptized by immersion.

(Now I will not compromise on this point. If Christ had to get baptized, then we too must go through baptism.)

An unbeliever is clearly one who does not believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ or in the divine plan of God.

Jesus said: ” I am the way, the truth and the light”..If two Christians who have accepted the Gospel message come together, how can they possibly be walking in darkness? They have both accepted the “Light” as their Redeemer, their Savior!. I understand that some Christian Faiths have doctrines that differ drastically from others. However, we are all professing to have the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. There is only ONE message.

I think our churches need to take a closer look at their interpretations of the WORD in 2 Cor. 6: 14.

God is clearly speaking of Christians marrying non-christians.

These unions are not equally yoked because they differ in the very basics of the faith. How can one who believes in Christ yoke his or herself with one who does not even believe in God? How can that union be founded in God if one party does not accept His very existence?

I have been a baptized member of a particular Christian denomination for quite some time now and I must admit, there are a few aspects of their doctrine that I do not accept as biblical or salvific. One of which is this very topic.

My advisement to those of you facing heat for being with someone outside of your denomination, search the WORD, fall on your face before the Lord and invite Him into the relationship. Once you have covered these three important aspects, rest assured that God will bring you through the heat Victorious.

Remember a three-fold cord is not easily broken. God must be the center of your relationship.

Now for those of you who have already married an unbeliever, there is still hope.  The Gospel of Jesus Christ and the saving message of God is OMNI POTENT. I urge you to continue in prayer and fasting. Pray daily for your loved one’s salvation and lead by example. If your faith is important to you, he will see it by the way you live your life. Be a testimony for God in everything you do and everything you say. If you feel disheartened (as you will), remember that there is nothing too hard for the Lord to handle.

Keep your faith strong and remain meditated on Him.
