Can a Christian marry a non-believer? What is the biblical view of marriage?
I do not support a Christian’s marrying a non-believer.
【2Co. 6:14-15】 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial ? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?
i think you can marry, but i do not support you. Because you many have different tinking in life, you will conflict with each other. They cannot understand your faith and serve in God. However, if you want to change their heart and want, you can do like that.
Yes, I agree with you that lthough it is possible to do this, I do not recommend it to others, because we have to pay different costs according to the direction we choose. I suggest that Christians marry Christians if the other person is a true Christian, not a false Christian. Although Christian marriages go through difficulties and contradictions, with God’s help and the guidance of the truth, it is easier for us to get through these difficulties and not give up marriage easily.
I don’t think a Christian should marry a non-believer. We don’t ignor non-believers.
2 Corinthians: 14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial[b]? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will live with them
and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they will be my people.”[c]
17 Therefore, Come out from them
and be separate,
says the Lord.
Touch no unclean thing,
and I will receive you.”[d]
18 And, “I will be a Father to you,
and you will be my sons and daughters,
Actully in the history of Israelites, there are very important women who were Getiles. But they have faith and they are more sincere than people of God.
And if a believer already got married with a non-believer, if the spouse would like to live together, then the believer should not divorce.
1 Corinthians: 10 To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. 11 But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.
12 To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord): If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. 13 And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him. 14 For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.
15 But if the unbeliever leaves, let it be so. The brother or the sister is not bound in such circumstances; God has called us to live in peace. 16 How do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or, how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife?
