Hi, i was with a hindu 4 over five years. The religon is based on idol worship and witchcraft. Though the culture of people themselfs are beautiful people. Look at the ignorance of the religion and decide. Who are you going to serve?
---Sunnie on 7/21/09

Don't do it. You have no common ground in truth as Christ does not share the throne.
Worse, you are likely to be pulled in his direction.
Hindu, as any religion which does not acknowledge Jesus Christ and the God of Israel, is demonic.
What literally in God's name would have you do such a thing?
There is no way God's will is to have one of his children unequally yoked. Puleeze!

I am christian woman about to marry a hindu man. I have always had very bad relationships with christian men.And i was close to giving up on love until my path crossed with the man i now love. He is a blessing in my life and a great burden was liftd. He is the kind of man i was praying for.God is to judge not man.each relationshp has its own journey with God
---charmi on 7/20/09

AMONGSTTHEDECEIVED, The unbeliever inthis case is anyone who does not believe in THE NAME, who do not believe CHRIST IS GOD. so pretty much all muslims and everyone who is not christian in this sense. this includes as example Yehovah wittnesses.
---Andy on 3/2/09

I just want to know what is a non-believer ? someone who is a pagan worshipping and is on a path of self destruction or someone who follows ie. islam/judaism. Is their a difference in non-beleivers ? does this scripture apply to both perspectives ?
2 Cor 6:14-16, "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
I didnt know my brothers and sisters in ie. islam/ judaism were following unrighteousness (have the same association to those of a non-believer who is pagan praticing).

No way!! You must not be unequally yoked. If you are a christian, it is a sin to marry outside of the faith. If Christ is not at the center of your relationship, your marriage is already doomed.
---jody on 2/25/09

T: If you call yourself a Christian, i do not know, but if you do, please start reading the bible, and aplyin g it to your life. Christians are the most tollerant in the world. HOWEVER THERE IS A LIMIT TO OUR OPENNES. WE ARE CALLED TO seperate us from the world in matters of marriage, nevertheless when one is married and commes to repentance, he/she should not look for a divorce. this NT advice was givve to
1 protect the person against unnecessary persecutions
2 prortect tyhe church against infioltration of different doctrines rather the ones teached to the church.
---Andy on 2/25/09

Question: what part does light have to do with darkness?
And Hinduism is truly a darkness.
---mima_inMM on 1/25/09

Well she can , so long as, she is able to accept him as he is, and he able to accept her as she is.

No one should convert, if they have to live forever together without resentment - faith and religion are a part of life, and leaving that for someone else sticks in your brain, and will build resentment and a bad relationship over time.

For all those who think it's a sin, or everything other than Christianity is wrong, shouldnt be having affairs or relationships with people of other religions in the first place... simple .
---T on 1/25/09

You are all separating this into Christian/nonchristian or race....
The ONLY thing that matters to Christ is our hearts, if we BELIEVE in our hearts that Christ died for us, and ask him to guide our lives---we will be saved!
God created man in HIS image, we are no longer under the law, we are under Grace.
And I for one, married a 'christian' man who was abusive and expected me to be submissive...its the man, and what is in his heart. not a religion. God is called by many names.
---Dena on 12/15/08

hey u people, world is gng some where n still u fight for religion n god...... No god tells that they r great only we humans fight for religion ..... juz love ur god n religion and help the poor needy or juz try to help people around u ONLY THEN UR GOD WILL LOVE U.Can a Christian woman marry a Hindu man??? who r u to decide that .it is the individual who is gng to live to which ever religion people belong to have no rights to stop it . now a days world is filled with people who fight for religions n caste .. really there is no use in fighting for it.. LOVE ur life life is only once live it and let others live.. try to be a matured human rather that being a animal who fights or argues in name of religion or god..
---vicky on 10/13/08

Private this is only for you here and all other religious people who talk about their religion great... Can you prove about yours from the start of your religion? I can prove my Jesus Christ as the only God and Lord for this world. If you CAN prove yourself correct I wwill GIVE UP my Christ... CAN YOU ALL DO IT? This is an open challenge for non-christians
---Davis on 6/10/08

She can! But, she would be disobeying God to the very limit of His patience.
---catherine on 4/25/08

Tray ... will yuo quote the scripture which says that races are not to intermarry?
---alan_of_UK on 4/25/08

Trav, Different races may marry with each other. The problem is not racial. the problem is IDOLATRY. For example: certainly Jews may marry amongst themselves, and yet, there are Jews of many different races, or nationalities all across the Earth. That is blatant RACISM to claim that different races cannot marry each other. For we're ALL human beings. AGAIN, with king Solomon, his problem was NOT so much that his wives were foreigners, it was that they influenced Solomon with their foreign gods.
---Gordon on 4/25/08

This question actually not complete. Are the two people here the same race.. equally important to the answer.
There is only one people/race given the New Covenant servanthood. Same race as found in the Old Covenant. There was never meant to be "adultery", or adulteration of any races.
This will fire some up.....but, I didn't write the scriptures. Whether I am or am not the people mentioned is of no bearing on truth. Love..usually starts out as lust...this may be the issue here.
---Trav on 4/18/08

No. King Solomon did that, and his foreign wives drew him into idolatry with their FOREIGN gods! Saints are not to be UNEQUALLY YOKED!
---Gordon on 4/18/08

if christian girl has to marry a hindu person due to some reason(love,parents like etc),if she submits that matter in the hands of God,then God may want that she shud marry him sothat he can get the salvation through her?
---rani on 4/18/08

I agree with you Julie. Unbelievers can be those of any religion other than Christianity and those of no religion at all. We are told not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers and that means ANY unbelievers.
---RitaH on 8/30/07

Will your stance be the same if there was a Christian and a person that didn't grow up in a Eastern religion.

I find that the minute you mention another religion people object but if its a unsaved western person people start coming up with solutions like take him him to church and observe him.

We live in an imperfect world. We are the religion we are for a number of reasons. Every situation is different.

Jesus was not concerned with domestic bliss

Matthew 10:21-22, 34-39

You must not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a sons wife against her mother-in-law; and a man will find his enemies under his own roof.
---Simon on 7/7/07

Not judging! But are you two not uneven yolks????????
---cheryle on 6/8/07

What Bible are you reading that you would even ask such a thing? God clearly says light has nothing in common with darkness and specifically says not to be unevenly yoked with an unbeliever. Jesus says "If you love me you will obey me" So i have to question your walk with the Lord. If this seems harsh take it up with the Lord he said it i didn't.

If you are a glutton for punishment and pain. Sure. Go ahead. Just keeping it real.If you are a true disciple of Christ(Christian) you know the answer to that. No! You will be unequally yoked. Learn to obey and understand the Word of God.
---Robyn on 6/7/07

We use words so loosely. A Christian woman. Is she a true Christian woman, with the true, living, God living in her? If the answer is yes then the answer is NO!
---catherine on 6/7/07

If you are a committed Christian, this will never work. I am in such a marriage & have been for 12 years & it's basically a sham. I'm left having to compromise to keep the peace.Fine if you're a nominal Christian where truth is relative and compromise seems OK. If you're a committed Christian like me, you're life will be hell - I'd never recommend it - please learn from me! I pray daily for my husband's salvation & am probably the only person doing this for him.
---Cathryn on 6/7/07

Sure but you will be unequally yoked. You will also be in direct disobedience to God.If you are a Christian of any length of time you should know what the bible says on being unequally yoked. Those words were not put there to just entertain us. We should live them out in our lives. Hinduism is in total opposition to Christianity. Why do you want to do this?

---Emcee on 5/28/07

The answer is Yes. they both live a righteous life and abide in God's commandments. Jesus Christ will judge the whole world by our thoughts, words and actions. there are many that live in harmony with Jesus Christ and His gospel. Jesus is no respector of persons. He does not see race, creed, culture etc. He sees the heart and how people live. who is in danger of the judgment. a person professing Christ and committing every sin under heaven, or someone living the gospel and avoiding evil at all costs.
---ashley on 5/28/07

I recently made the descision to not marry my Hindu boyfriend of 6yrs. I regret it everyday. He has also gotten an arranged marriage--He regrets it as well. I wish I had examined the meaning behind the command of being unequally yoked first.

Maybe I should not have been in a relationship like this but I was. Do it all over again I would have married him.
---Asha on 5/28/07

Isa 45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
Ro 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

If Jesus isn't this mans saviour you are totally going to miss out on godly leadership in the home.

I am a born Hindu and my answer is yes for the question. kanhanna don't tell anyone what to read Hinduism. God has created Love as eternal. You need to have a religious tolerance if you say yes for this marriage. Then you have to respect your spouse religion. You are true Hindu there is no problem following Christ. He is perfect in all sense. To take you to God, this is what we believe. And Respect all religion
---Rakesh on 4/19/07

Hinduism is a eternal religion.A Hindu may not be knowing it.If you have the intention of marrying a Hindu and if you have ample time to go to the root of its scriptures you will find you are on the right choice of your life.A basic thing on Hinduism for you.
---kanhanna on 3/10/07

If you are truly a born-again Christian, then the answer is "no" you cannot marry a Hindu man. If you do that you will be unequally yoked and in disobedience to the Lord.

But you need to sit and talk about this, do not enter a marriage with your boyfriend unless your deeply devoted to the other. If you decide to not marry him, you need to sit him down, and explain that you love him, and why you cant and your beliefs. Hell be deeply hurt so you owe him an explanation. Email me and tell me what you choose to do because Im extremely curious about your decision. You dont have to of course.

My parents were mixed, they exposed us equally to both sides of our culture, and let us pick our own religions, some picked Christianity, some Hinduism, and I even have a brother who completely surprised us and converted to Buddhism.
---nicole on 8/17/06

. I tend to see Christians more then anyone else turning the children against the other culture. Indians in my experience dont tend to do this because their very family orientated and that makes them flexible, their willing to do most anything for the happiness of their loved ones.
---nicole on 8/17/06

Its important for the kids to know about their background. Its so sad, when the mother or father, completely raises them one religion, and then makes them hate the other. I think the best thing to do, is teach them about both religions and let them pick the one they want to follow if any

And whatever religion you choose to raise the children as you should also expose them to the other culture. Hindus have traditions that are not tied with their religion, and even the ones that are, you should celebrate it, along with and American traditions.

I suggest you sit and talk to him about it, you guys could decide to raise him one of two ways.
Raise them both Hindu and Christian, just Christian, or just Hindu. Whatever you choose though do not turn the child against the other religion or culture.

Impossible to understand on this earth, but true. And God loves you so much that He sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die on the Cross for your sins, then Jesus rose from the dead.
---Helen_5378 on 8/16/06

I thought god loves everyone. If thats true I honestly doubt he'd mind you marrying someone who chooses to worship him in a diffrent way. It's not like he hates god is it? And Hinduim is a bit similar to christinity. They only have one god too. He just takes diffrent forms to accomplish diffrent tasts. It's a mental thing, more of a methapor. And it's supposed to make it easier to consentrate when you pray
---private on 8/16/06

I am a born-again Christian, and I was in an "unequally yoked" marriage with a nonbeliever, and it was a total disaster from Day One. DO NOT MARRY A NON-CHRISTIAN if you are devoted to Christ.

Well, I can but not here for it would take too long. But, the burden of proof is not on me because I say it is true.

Pushyamitra_Sunga it is not true that Christians marry Hindus all the time. There are possibly many people who attend Christian churches and pay lip service to Chrisitianity who marry Hindus but the fact that they marry a non-Christian shows that the majority are not Christians themselves. Just rarely a Christian will disobey God on this and regret it for the rest of their lives.

If the person you are married does not share your faith, it is a disaster waiting to happen. If you are not equally yoked, God cannot bless your union because you are choosing to marry someone without regard for God's ultimate plan, thus sinning. God cannot bless sin.

Dara, a christian woman can do whatever she wants. You have free will to choose your life's path. HOWEVER, what you sow is what you will reap so if you sow disobedience (being yoked with non believer in Jesus being the only way to God) then you shall reap a life of heartache, frustration and loss. I know from personal experience. Don't get fooled by the Hindu's "belief" in Jesus because its along with, Sheva, Krisna, and all the other gods equally.

A man is at this moment awaiting execution in India because he has converted to Christianity and wants to tell others of Christ. Those wishing to execute him are Hindus. They might be a loving people amongst themselves but are very opposed to anyone converting to Christianity. If you are a Christian you will not only be going against God's word regarding unequal yoking but could also be in mortal danger. If any converting is expected it will be you who will be expected to convert and become a Hindu.

A Christian can marry anyone, HOWEVER, the better answer is: A believer should only marry a believer. If you are a Christian believer, then please, don't bring your house down, wait out the lonliness, and marry a believer. Jesus is coming soon, no one wants a troubled household. Any non-believer's spirit is an open door to demons. Please use wisdom in choosing a mate. Choose someone who loves Jesus, and no one else. You can't serve two masters.
