This doesn’t mean you can’t be friends with or even date someone who believes differently than you at all (especially since Paul wasn’t talking about friendships or marriage).
We discuss the Bible and share our deep passion for the truth. Physical touch/intimacy should correspond with commitment. This doesn’t mean anything goes if you are engaged. What is your motivation -- power and control, gratifying your own ego, meeting a selfish need, or genuine affection?

I believe that my marriage will be sanctified by God through me. 1) The term “equally yoked” is not used here at all. They were taught not to connect a donkey with a horse, or a cattle with an ox. Those animals would be unequally yoked because they differed in size, strength, purpose, and ability. I want to help you avoid this mistake, so grab your Bibles and turn with me to 2 Corinthians . The scripture we just read shows 3 important things that most people overlook. Back in the Bible days, farmers yoked animals together to plow fields and carry heavy loads.I broke up with my boyfriend who is a unbeliever and I’m trying to tell myself that I did the right thing, but honestly I still have hope for our relationship.I’m having a hard time to see that it can’t work out.In 2 Corinthians -16, it says not to mix with things that are wicked and that a believer and unbeliever has nothing in common, but my ex-boyfriend is not wicked.He happens to have very high morals, and he does not worship idols.
