Can A Jew Marry A Christian

May a non practicing jewish man of the highest moral and ethical values date a devout Christian woman? My platonic friend of 9 years is in her late 40's and future children would not be an issue. Yes, I believe we could be lifelong soulmates / possibly marry some day.

If the Jewish man has not been born again,the union would be unequally yoked.
---Robyn on 12/31/10


No, the new testament says good and bad shouldn't mix. If a Christian promises that
Christ comes firsti= in a marriage, over husband or wife. Thye also need someone who has
pledged away their loyalty.
Christian girls think they can save their
Jewish boyfriends. but they don't need saving, execpt from the Christian girlfiend and her familh.

No, you should not date. SHE, if truly a Christian would be in direct disobedience to God's KNOWN will for His Born Again Children. It doesn't matter if you are a Jew or whatever.....the fact is.....Christians are not to be unequally yolked.

4) Yes, the Jews were God's chosen ones, God's original selection to be His people, through their disobedience and ungratefulness, He opened the door up to everyone to become His child and the door He opened was Jesus. Oh....but when a Jewish person accepts Jesus as their Messiah, whom God promised to them throughout the Old Testament, God is so very pleased and full of joy, because this is a fulfillment of His original plan for His chosen people, Jesus was sent to the Jew first, then the Gentile.

Do not take wrong....but, there were more than Judah.
See Heb 8:8 and Jer 31:31.
Northern house of Israel was 11 Nations, more than Judah. Don't know where this group is....GOD does. Revelations, Isaiah etc.

NowThe Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils,
Speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron,
Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.

Just because someone is from a different country or upbringing doesn't denote an unequal yoke. 2 Cor. 6:14 explains that if one is a Christian and the other is not, that is an unequal yoke. It is this kind of union that God tells us not to go into.
---john on 10/27/08


No!! And here's why,
In the New Testament Acts 4:10-11-12
" 10-Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.

11-This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

12-Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

As an Orthodox Jew you deny the truth of these Scriptures.
---mima on 10/27/08


No, you are unequally yoked. There is only one way to the Father, and that is Jesus Christ. If he is not a born again believer in Christ, then it is not Jesus' heart that you marry Him.
---emerald on 10/26/08


You both believe in YHWH God so being unequally yoked is not an issue. If you like him and he likes you go for it and best wishes to you both.
---notlaw99 on 10/26/08


Yes, if both are Born Again,By Trusting in (Jesus Christ YWeh's SON)as stated Jn.3:16-17 Neither Jew,Greek,etc.(col.3:11)we're all the same.Pro.18:22Whoso finds (A) wife finds a good thing & obtains Favor from the Lord.Heb.13:4 Marriage is honorable(in all) & the marriage bed un-defiled but whore-mongers & adulterers God WILL judge.un-equal yoke(Believer marrying un-believer) as stated in 2 Cor6:14.Born Again Believers should pattern God, who looks NOT at the outward appearance.1 sam.16:7

catherine, What planet are you from? Why can't you just answer the man's question? It had nothing to do with getting drunk are Jesus coming down here to get married.
---betty8468 on 7/15/07


No, because she would be unequally yoked with you because you are not born-again (2Corinthians 6:14-17).
---Helen_5378 on 7/14/07


Leslie:
1) Christians as a group, are not Messianic Jews...Messianic Jews are Jewish people (whether they were practicing Judiasm or not) who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord, Savior and Messiah. Messianic Jews can also refer to themselves as Christians. Usually people who refer to themselves as Christians (who were never Jewish) were some other type of religion or never believed in anything at all. I know this because I am a Jewish believer in Jesus as the Messiah.
---Holly4jc on 7/13/07


2) For a Jewish person, whether practicing their religious beliefs or not, who has not received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior to marry a born again believer, who follows Jesus is TOTALLY unequally yoked, since the Jewish non-believer is still living in darkness and the born again person (whether orginally Jewish or not) is living in the light. What does darkness have to do with light? Nothing! I know, I've been on both sides of the fence.
---Holly4jc on 7/13/07


1) What makes us "equally yoked" with another person is having the same values and beliefs, which are instilled within us as believers (in Christianity) by the Holy Spirit. If you do not have the Holy Spirit residing within you as a result of accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior, then you cannot possibly be equally yoked with someone who does.
---Holly4jc on 7/13/07


2) Jews and Christians are "equally yoked" only when they both have Jesus Christ on the throne of their hearts with the Holy Spirit within each of them knitting then together as one, in one spirit and in one accord, to follow in the ways of the Lord. It is not in our nature as human beings to want to follow the ways of the Lord, but with the Holy Spirit empowering us and changing us from within, it becomes possible and we desire to follow God and His ways.

3) Without the Holy Spirit, it is impossible to follow the ways of the Lord on our own. This was proven by the story of the Jewish people wandering in the desert for 40 years, they just could not keep God's commands. We are all God's creation, but only become His children when we receive Jesus as our savior. As a Jew, I only became His child when I received Jesus, up until then, I was His creation.

4) Yes, the Jews were God's chosen ones, God's original selection to be His people, but through their disobedience and ungratefulness, He opened the door up to everyone to become His child and the door He opened was Jesus.

Christians are really just Messianic Jews - they are Jews that believe that Jesus is the Messiah. However, if he is not a practicing Jew, that may be a problem. A Christian and a Jew are equally yoked because both are God's people. Non-pacticing Jews may make you unequally yoked together.
---Leslie on 7/13/07


If you are not practicing your Jewish faith, have you considered learning about Jesus as Messiah? I suggest you contact Chosen People Ministries, they have a website. Ask them how you can learn about Yeshua, Jesus.

You are free to marry whomever you wish. If your friend is a devout Christian, she may not wish to disobey God's Word on marrying an unbeliever.

It happens all the time.

Whether it SHOULD is another issue.
---Jack on 7/13/07


I don't know. Can he? I'll tell you one thing I do know, Jesus didn't come down here to get married. And Jesus didn't come here to get drunk either. Jesus came for one reason, to be raised from the dead, so a few people could be saved, because the heart of man is WICKED. ++
---catherine on 7/13/07


Skater, I believe you both need to seek God for that answer. Why are you non-practicing? Have you considered Christianity? Since you say you are non-practicing you don't believe the way Jews believe. Why? Seek God for your life first then consider your friend. If you love her, then you will at least consider her beliefs and search for the Truth before making any committments to her of that nature.
