Christian Singles and the Unequally Yoked Scripture

bible.jpg

The scripture of 2 Corinthians 6:14 says, "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness, and what communion hath light with darkness?" This scripture is the core of the meaning of being unequally yoked and it is evident that it is not referring exclusively to dating and marriage. It specifically points out that there is no real fellowship between righteousness and unrighteousness and that there cannot be real communion between light and darkness.

This does not mean that Christians cannot have friendly and valuable relations with non-Christians. Biblical scripture plainly tells us that Jesus had friendly dealings with unbelievers. We read, "And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners" (KJV, Matthew 9:10-11)? Followers of Christ are not to be so isolated from non-Christians to the point that they cannot even have dealings with them that are necessary to introduce the Savior. However, those dealings often have to be kept at a certain "distance." For example, Jesus spoke to unbelievers in parables, but spoke plainly to his own apostles and to his disciples. He had dealings with unbelievers and with believers, but the dealings he had with believers were not like those he maintained with his followers.

Understandably, some Christian believers are confused about the level of fellowship and communion they are advised to have or not have with people who do not follow Christ. They read about Jesus having dealings with unbelievers as we see in scriptures like Matthew 9:10-11; they then read, "...Come out from among them and be ye separate, saith the Lord..." (2 Corinthians 6:17). How do we reconcile scriptures like Matthew 9:10-11 with those such as 2 Corinthians 6:17 in the study of what it means to be unequally yoked? Again, God's word warns not against having any fellowship at all with unbelievers, but rather against some levels of fellowship and communion with those who are not of the household of faith in Christ. Dating and marriage is only one of those levels. True believers in Jesus are one in Christ, meaning that they are of one mind and on one accord (Galatians 3:28). Husband and wife become one flesh (Matthew 19:5). If a Christian marries an unbeliever, he or she is going to be unequally yoked, because he/she is supposed to be one with Christ, yet is also trying to be one with someone who does not walk with Christ. This is one of the more popular examples of being unequally yoked. It is not, however, the only real life example.

Unequally Yoked in Other Important Areas of Life


Other areas of life in which Christian believers might want to think twice before entering into a close fellowship with those who don't truly walk with Christ include, but is not limited to political alliances and business partnerships. Issues are going to arise that lead to conflict. The believer determined to obey God will usually have to compromise or break off the type of relation in question. But, isn't there conflict among even true Christians? Yes, there is. Although genuine followers of Christ are of one mind, they have different personalities just like those who don't follow Christ; that is only common sense. However, mutual desire to be obedient to Christ makes all of the difference. Each party will give in, not to the other, but to the will of the one who governs them both. This is why God's word tells the Christian to avoid being unequally yoked. We read instructions to Israel such as, "Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods" (Exodus 23:32).

Again, dating and marriage is not the only area of life in which the follower of Christ is advised to avoid being unequally yoked.
