Bible verse not dating non christian

If you marry a non-Christian or someone of a different faith you’re the one who will end up compromising and you’re the one who might be led astray.If someone is not building you up in Christ they are bringing you down.

Paul gives specific instruction to believers who are married to unbelievers—stay together!

The short answer is "no." However, it is good to examine the scripture behind the answer to understand it more completely, including why such a marriage is a bad idea.

The usual answer given the believer is from 2 Corinthians: Do not be bound together [unequally yoked] with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?

A "yoke" was a farm implement that bound two animals together so that they could work together as a team.

Modern translations remove the "yoke" and translate the intent of the verse, warning believers, "Do not be bound together with unbelievers." Does this apply to marriage?
