Is It A Sin to Marry a Non-Christian?


Kristina: “The person who loves me is not of my religion, but he is willing to study the Bible and convert to a Christian and then marry me. He is willing to do anything for me just to make me happy. My parents find it difficult to believe and they feel I am falling into a trap. But I believe he loves me even more than I love him, and I know that is the greatest blessing.”

The Voice for Love: “Beloved child of God, thank you for having the courage to ask this question. I know this is important to you and therefore, I will answer the many questions that are presented here.

“Beloved one, I want you to know that sin does not exist except in the human mind. Please contemplate this, if you will: Almost all religions agree that God Is omnipresent (present everywhere, within all things) and that God Is Love, unconditional, eternal Love. If this is true, and certainly Christianity agrees with this, then how could God lack something, how could He need anything? The Almighty IS all things therefore He does not know lack. In His unconditional Love of you, His precious child, He neither demands nor needs anything of you. It is you in your human condition that chooses, always, between the only two voices that you may listen to: Love or Fear.

“God’s Will is that you be happy, profoundly happy in the absolute knowledge that you are one with Him. Nothing else matters to Him because once you know you are one with Him and always Loved by Him, everything else becomes secondary. Seek first the kingdom of Heaven and all else shall be given! By asking your question, you have done so, beloved one. Please take a moment to feel this.

“You have asked if it is a sin to marry someone not of your religion and I have explained to you that it is not, for there is no sin in the eyes of God. All things or situations are but experiences and God has no judgment and no agenda. Just Love.

“Beloved one, it is important that you look deep in your heart and ask yourself if you can be in a relationship with a man who cares more for you than you for him. That is the real question and only you know the answer. To be loved by another is a grand thing but it is also important to love as well. Mutual love creates a strong partnership for when things get difficult, and it also brings you joy as the giving is as important as the receiving. I tell you this with much love. Please join with God in prayer as you contemplate these things.

    Why then does the word  says be not unequally yoked.Not because it is sin but because how can to walk together if they don’t agree money,child rearing,and religion are values that people at time find hard to agree on.And only the love of God and listening to the holy spirit can change a man. Do not go into a relationship hoping that you can change him. you have to see yourself and love him the same  .In all things listen to your inner voice just as candace and paul did and wait for guidance .  SRT

    This teaching absolute not to be preaching in scriptures and i totally diagree with it.The bible itself have the whole clue to  this do issues.Take from the History of Abraham,when isaac what about to marry,Abraham sent one of His slave man to go to His father house to get a wife for isaac.why! cos the house is safe than outside the house.
    There are lots of broken home now due to the fact that they are two different people.when God vreated adam,it was record that God called a deep sleep on him  and brought eve out from His ribs.Not like starting all over again to create what has already exist.
    Did the author of the blogs himself married out of the Kingdom of God!God warned the children of Isreal many consecutives time not to marry the stranger.check what happened to samson for marrying deliah,how about solomon the king too!
    I believe you know all this,please let give what is cesar for cesar and whatis God to God.
    thank you

    The advisement above is really poor, be not unequally yoked is what the bible says. If this man truly comes to love Christ and devote his life to him as you do, then by all means if there is mutual love and respect marry the man.

    The advice given here is beyond the teaching of the scriptures of any religion, including the Bible, as it is from the Holy Spirit (i.e the Divine Self or the God within). The Holy Spirit does not need religious scriptures and its associated theology and beliefs to give advice to anyone. It does not discriminate on who it is giving advice to – remember, it’s love is unconditional.

    God gives advice from Love – Divine Love, regardless of whatever religion that person belongs to that the Holy Spirit/God is giving the advice to. To try to define God/Holy Spirit and the infinitely loving, peaceful and joyous advice that it gives by the means of religious scriptures, beliefs, etc… is limiting Its abilities, which, in truth, can never be limited in any way. God/Holy Spirit existed before religion and its scriptures and beliefs came about.

    Lastly, attacking the author is not the way to get your point across. Yes, you believe very strongly in what you believe in as a Christian and have a different point of view, but personal attacks really will get you nowehere, especially wth God.

    With Blessings,

    I agree. That is what I see with organized religion in that it is limiting and restrictive to some degree. In reality, we are all God’s children, regardless of what religion each of us belongs to. We are all equally worthy of God’s love and each other’s love and respect. God does not discriminate as to who He loves, why should we? That is a great point that you make.

  • I couldn’t agree with you more.  I’ve personally struggled with the same situation.  I grew up in a christian family, going to church, and have a deep relationship with the Holy Spirit.  When my fiance and I were going through marriage counseling through my church, our counselors attacked my fiance and our relationship because he was not a “Christian.”  I had a feeling this was going to happen, and they threw the “equally yoked” message at us, and all this made me and my fiance feel terrible.  But in my own time with him I saw God within him.  He constantly suprised me with his true goodness, his actions showing me that he really is pure and beautiful, selfless, soulful, strong, everything I need and want in a husband.  In fact he seemed more christ-like than most church people I knew.  His family never took him to church growing up because of the dogma and hypocrisy they saw in “christian” people.  So he was skeptical of religion.  After my marriage coulselors personally sat me down and asked me to break up with him, or at least hold off the wedding until his soul was “saved” I had a long heart-to-heart with my fiance.  We discovered that it wasn’t religion that we wanted to hold us together, but spiritual relationship.  All I wanted was simply effort to grow together spiritually, to pray and meditate together, to share our hearts and support eachother.  I’m happy to say that He has found Christ, but in non-conventional ways.  It’s not that the Church and Bible teachings aren’t good, but in my situation they were limiting and like you say, the Holy Spirit is greater than that.  We have now been happily married for over a year, with many more to come!

    Thanks for sharing that. Marriage should be more than just physical love and a connection on the physical/material level – it should also be a connection at the deeper spiritual level. I am glad that you listen to your inner voice and went with it instead of the marriage counselor. I with you two all the best!
