  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 2
    A couple of Scriptures I would use to support this type of relationship, is 2 Corinthians 6:14: "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" and 1 Corinthians 7:39:"The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord." Allow me to explain this further:

    The first Scripture relates to any type of binding union, whether in marriage or in business, that such a strong union with unbelievers is inviting trouble, as some aspects of that union will go against the teachings from the Bible & of course, will cause a struggle in spirit as to whether to give in or challenge the other person or even break off the contract.

    The second Scripture actually speaks of a marriage when the husband dies (& this would apply the other way if the wife dies). Once the spouse has died, the other one is considered as single & eligible to re-marry if he/she so wishes. But if they do re-marry, then their spouse should be one who is also a believer in Christ, & preferably believing in the same doctrines/teachings from the Bible. Many marriages have become strained or gone sour because of major differences in this matter & in the raising up of children.

    You're still 15 yrs old, so don't be a great hurry to form such lasting bonds. Meet with other young Christians in your youth group & use that time not only to grow closer to the Lord, but to seek out friends that you can be close to & share more intimately with. When you get older, sorted out your education, job, & having the maturity to take on responsibilities that come with marriage, then pray to the Lord for the right young man who truly loves the Lord, putting Him first in everything & has a quiet, gentle spirit who will give you the love, honour & respect that you deserve.
