Muslim Girl And Christian Guy

I'm an Iraqi Muslim girl and my BF is a British Christian guy, we want to get married in Iraq. Would you please give me details about the process?

Moderator - Not a good idea for you guys to get married based upon either one of your religions IE Christianity and Islam. Are you considering accepting Jesus?

To answer, just marry, then wait the years to process. You'll probably start talking divorce before you ever get to Britain.

Cannot the same thing be said for one christian marring another?

To answer, just marry, then wait the years to process. You'll probably start talking divorce before you ever get to Britain. Affidavits of support must be signed. There are minimum requirements for income. It's a poor deal for the man. Divorce does not end the obligation. The U.S. and Britain have not had a good relationship with Iraq, so things will be further complicated. The Moderator is right that two are not to be unequally yoked, but in this day and age, christian marriages are no better. Fact is that Biblically, it is better not to marry. (Matthew 19:10, 1 Corinthians 7:1 and 1 Corinthians 7:39-40)

Probably not a good idea to get married in Iraq. Actually, not a good idea for him to even enter Iraq at all, since being a Christian is illegal in Iraq and punishable by death. I think marrying a Christian is punishable by death also.

Here is a scripture that should solve the problem: 2 Corinthians 6:14 (NASB77)
"Do not be bound together with unbelievers,...."

Should a Christian sign a work contract to be employed by a none christian?

Wouldn't signing a work contract with a non-christian make a christian bound, or yoked to that none christian?

That is why i beleive that this text is primarily about worshiping / fellowshipping with unbelievsr

Here is a scripture that should solve the problem: 2 Corinthians 6:14 (NASB77)
"Do not be bound together with unbelievers,...."

Problem solved! Just to make sure, "NO" a Christian and non-Christian should not marry according to this scripture.

Marriage between Christians and non-Christians have happened throughout history, especially when marriages were arranged.

To give one example of many, St. Clothilde, Queen of France, was married to King Clovis of the Franks who was a pagan, but he later converted.

But no one is saying that these are good ideas today.

Happy New Year!

Christ is born! Glorify Him!

Once again, I never said the marraige was not valid. Yes, marriage is between a man and woman but those are not the only factors. I cannot be convinced that it is ok for a Christian to marry a non christian. Thanks for your thoughts
---pg1 on 1/2/13


1 Cor 5:9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:

This does not address marriage, it addresses condoning such behavior in the church

1 Cor 5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator

While I see your point. I do not believe that God has set aside marriage only for Christians.

Marriage is between male and female, not between christian and christian

A marriage between any male and any female is valid

Nehemiah 13:23-26 in my view supports your point much better Deuteronomy 23:3 - 8
---francis on 1/1/13


I agree that the text is addressing other types of relationships as well but not to the exclusion of marriage as it is still a relationship. Yoke means to be bound, linked or connected to. Other translations use the word mismatched. Marriage binds people. A believer married to a non believer is definitely mismatched. Paul addresses the issue of associating with non believers in 1 Cor.5: 9,10. I work with non Christians and I have no desire to form binding relationships with them because apart from sharing Christ I have nothing in common with them. Been down that road and those bonds once formed are hard to break.

2 Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?....let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

I think we disagree on what exactly this means. Let us take into consideration the total number of devout Jews, who were married to non-Jews

Then let us consider the relationship that many Christians in the labour force have with the employers who are non-Christians, clearly unequally yoked by popular definition

I believe this text is about fellowship, and worshiping with non believers, rather than marriage to non Christians

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times

Speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron,
Forbidding to marry, to abstain from meats, which God hath created!

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!

And yes! God forbid anyone should be unequally yoked WITH UNBELIEVERS!
But, what's this I read?

As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable, there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers.
Believe the truth!
Peace
---TheSeg on 1/1/13


The Seg - I'm pretty sure that the verses you quote refer to a couple where neither were saved prior to marriage but then one of them is saved after marriage.

It is a totally different issue when, prior to marriage one is saved and the other not.

"Be ye not unequally yoked WITH UNBELIEVERS."
---Rita_H on 1/1/13


Context is key. The couples were already married in the Scriptures you are referencing not dating and or considering marriage to a non beleiver.
---pg1 on 1/1/13


But to the rest speak I, not the Lord:
If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.

And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.

For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean, but now are they holy.


For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
---TheSeg on 1/1/13


Hi Francis
Not saying the marriage is not valid. I am looking at it from the perspective of whether or not it is Gods will. Scripture is clear. Christians are not to form bonding relationships with non Christians because you have nothing in common thereby making it more difficult to have a good and solid marriage.
---pg1 on 1/1/13


//Here is the kicker, we re-baptize Christians when they come from one denomination to the next,//
How sad, when man is the judge.

There are couples who are married and God was no where it in.
---pg1 on 12/31/12
I respectively disagree.
When non christians( buddist, toaist, muslims, atheists and other none jew / none christian married couples) join the christian church we never ask them to remarry, but we always ask them to be baptized.

Even before they are part of the church we recognize their marriage as valid in God's eyes regardless of their doctrinal beliefs.

Here is the kicker, we re-baptize Christians when they come from one denomination to the next, but we never remarry people who come from other religions or from no religion.

Because marriage is valid in Gods eyes regardless of religion
---francis on 1/1/13


Francis
I respectively disagree. Scripture tells us that the foreign women Solomon married caused hin to stray from God. The institution of marriage is ordained but not every union. There are couples who are married and God was no where it in.

2 Corinthians 6:14 - BE ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness ? and what communion hath light with darkness? -

Lets see!
I am a Christian guy, going into a Muslim country to marry a Muslim girl.
Yea, thats just the way, I want to start my marriage!

Why not just go there, hold up a British flag.
And say here I am!
Im sure theyll let you know.
Just how they feel about you!

But please dont tell them you are going to marry one of (THEIR WOMEN)
Dont the men there own the women?
This guy should talk to a doctor!

If you love this guy, bring him to Brooklyn, NY!
Marry him here!
At lease here, not all, but some of us will defend you.
If you do it there, God help you!

PS whatever you do!
May God Bless you

Peace

Tam, 'If' you were truly "Muslim", and your "BF" truly "Christian", this union would not even be considered, for you both would know that you are unequally yoked. Either rethink your plans, or, your religious beliefs.
---josef on 12/30/12


\\Such people refer to themselves as Christians because they genuinely think that is what they are but they are misled.\\

By your own words, RitaH, if you genuinely think you are a Christian, that means that YOU are misled, too.

Did you ever think of that?

There are many truly Christian men--even by your standards--who fall in love with the wrong women.

Christ is born! Glorify Him!

I don't know exactly what your boyfriend believes, but the entity that mahometanism called "jesus" is NOT the Jesus Christ of the Bible. (Moderator, it does not good to ask her if she wants to "accept Christ," for this reason. For the most part, mahometans think they already have. They don't believe that Jesus was crucified and rose from the dead.)

And do you love your boyfriend enough to risk being the victim of another mahometan honor killing? That's what happens to mahometanesses who marry non-mahometan men.

Christ is born! Glorify Him!

1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God.

Know that if your husband is a christian, that you are entering into a christian marriage

Joseph son of Jacob, King David, King solomon, Judah, and many other man have married outside of their faith.

1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God.

All marriages are a God institution be it of mixed religion or no religion

Be a good wife

I doubt he is a born-again Christian because if he were he should not be even thinking about this and would never have dated a muslim girl.

He is probably like millions of other people and 'goes to church' but has never accepted Christ as his Saviour and Lord. Such people refer to themselves as Christians because they genuinely think that is what they are but they are misled.

You will both have huge problems if a marriage goes ahead. Both of you should pray to God and ask Him to reveal His Son Jesus to you. I pray that you will both be saved.
---Rita_H on 12/30/12


I would not try that in Iraq. You would best do that outside a country that is more accepting of such things.

I would also expect backlash from all who love this world, and the things in it. This would include Christians as well as Mohammedans.

Marriage is trouble and suicide mixed together. If you are committed to die, both physically and psychologically for your boyfriend, and he for you, you will still rue the day you did get married many times in the future.

But, life is not about self-preservation.
