Ezra 9:11 Which thou hast commanded by thy servants the prophets, saying, The land, unto which ye go to possess it, is an unclean land with the filthiness of the people of the lands, with their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their uncleanness. 12 Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.
God’s people are not to marry those who hate God or are indifferent to Him. We as children of the light are to marry others that love God.
When you marry someone who doesn’t love God as much as you do then you open yourself up to being contaminated by their sin. Their attitudes and way of living will affect you and make you like them.
If we marry the lost we will end up being tolerant of their sin, their rebellion against God, their false religion or gods. We will take on their habits and sin to keep the peace in the family.
We must avoid this sin with all that is in us! We must remember that for two to walk together they must be in agreement. So be careful who you date. Be careful to seek out people that love God like you do or more so that you will be challenged to serve God with all that is within you!
