Quote# 80978

When God's people intermarry with unbelievers, they are rebelling against the Word of God and sinning against God. They are also sinning against their unborn children and their children and their children. It should be ingrained in every child in his earliest days that he should never marry an unsaved person. Hence, he should be taught that he should never date unsaved people. Think of it! Intermarriage between God's people and the heathen caused the entire world to be destroyed and also caused man to have his language differ from others. This has caused and is causing all the trouble in the Middle East and has brought grief and heartache to millions of people who have violated the command of God and to millions of people who are children and grandchildren of those who have violated the command of God. Marriage is a yoke, and we are plainly commanded not to yoke up with unbelievers.

Intermarriage between believers and non-believers isn't causing problems in the Middle East. Centuries of an overabundance of believers in the Middle East and Western imperialism are what causes that region's problems.

I'd have to agree.

I can only imagine the grief Christian spouses have brought to the non-believing ones until they converted.

With an attitude like that I can't imagine you'll have to worry about marrying anybody in the near future

Hit the road Jack and don't come back around here, intolerant asshole.

Doubting Thomas

Because we all know that unbelievers are evil, immoral devil worshipers who eat babies. Best not to let their blood mix with the pure blood of fine, upstanding Christians.

White supremacists say the same thing Jack does about marrying outside your race.

The only time it causes problems is when one side is very fucking myopic. Otherwise I can't see it being a major problem unless one side makes it so. You would make it so Mr. Hyles

Wow, nobody wants to marry a christian. I would rather be single.

4/30/2011 4:18:41 PM


...must be a virgin

The late Rev. Hyles was a real expert on marriage and child-rearing. *snort*

{ahem} Naomi's son and Ruth? The implication seems to be that Ruth was at first not a worshiper of Yhwh, thus Naomi telling Ruth that it would probably be best for her to return to her original city, and its particular Baalim. That Ruth has decided to follow Naomi's god is a little beside the point, methinks...

Jezeus: Anything except. Hyles was a major fundamentalist archon, and had several children. He was ALSO a rather remarkable adulterer...

Thinly disguised racism.
Still obvious though.

"Plainly commanded?" Paul suggests that Christians avoid marrying non-Christians because it creates an awkward situation. He would not have considered his letters to be holy writ, and while it's a good suggestion, it's good because it's practical, not because it's God's command. He also gives advice on how to make interfaith marriages work, which I'd say indicates pretty clearly that he didn't consider them totally out of the question.

Also, the tower of babel? really? of all the points in the OT where marrying people of other religions or cultures is actually condemned you managed to pick out a story that has nothing whatsoever to do with marriage at all. nice going...

Sorry Jack, the yoke is on you.

4/30/2011 5:18:19 PM

Bleh bleh bleh

Ah, the reverse slippery slope. Since Gay marriage is banned based on our beliefs, we can ban all other marriages we don't like.

I can just imagine judges and managers complaining about being sued for not giving interfaith couples the same rights as Christian couples.

Voldemort said the same thing about wizards who marry Muggles. Just saying...

Can we apply the same back at these types of people?

4/30/2011 6:23:11 PM


Get the feeling that Jack meant black people when he said "unbelievers"?

Marriage is a yoke alright, and the yoke's on you!
(Sorry, I couldn't resist)

gay deist

doesn't the bible also state you sanctify your spouse if you're a believer regardless of your spouse's beliefs?

4/30/2011 6:37:39 PM


Christians marrying non-Christians is the cause of the unrest in the Middle East? You may want to tell the Sunni's and Shiite's that so they stop killing eachother.

Hey, don't worry. I have absolutely no interest in marrying any of your ilk. In fact, I have no interest in marriage at all. Just imagine; all my life I will have extramarital relations! Oh, the horror! Hehehe, sorry. I don't want to be mean. I just find this funny, that's all.

4/30/2011 7:09:45 PM


What if someone's spouse converts or leaves Christianity after you're several years?
