Are You Equally Yoked?

“What happens when your partner isn’t on the same page as you?  What Does It Mean To Be Equally Yoked?”  

Being equally yoked is a biblical term referred to in the Church that is used to
justify a decision about marriage or a relationship. 

I have heard people say that they were not equally yoked with someone because of
a difference of where they were raised, how they make decisions, beliefs, Money, education, looks and even appearance.

The truth is That this has nothing to do with being equally yoked! “unequally
yoked” does not specifically refer to marriage. Actually, the phrase “equally
yoked” is not even in the bible.

 II Corinthians 6:14 (KJV) says, “Be ye not unequally yoked with unbelievers. . .”

It doesn’t say in friendship, relationships, it doesn’t even say in marriage but its implication is that it is regard To any relationship with another person.

A relationship with another person could be a marriage, but not necessarily.

 If two people go to church together that does not mean that they are equally yoked. If two people don’t go to church together that does not mean that they
are unequally yoked. If one person goes to one church and the other person goes to another church, can they still be equally yoked? Well, maybe. If one person goes to church and the other person does not go to church can they still be equally yoked? 
 Well, maybe.

First, both people should be Christians.
Secondly, remember, no matter how great a person you think you are, no matter how you look, no matter how great you smell, no matter how much money
you have, no matter where you live, your status, your job or position, you
can’t make a person become a Christian or believe in God, they have to do this and make this decision of their own free will!

Just remember this: “Going
to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes
you an automobile.”
