If both of you are born again, then you are not unequally yoked. Unequally yoked means a believer (Christian) and a none believer (sinner). But it would be better if both of you go to the same church, and have the same beliefs otherwise it could be and get confusing.

I don't think that as long as you are both born-again Christians that just attending different churches makes you unequally yoked. To my understanding, that is a believer with a non-believer.

I didn't know someone could show such hatred for their family either, Alan.

I didn't know that a Christian could show such hate.

MikeM., you have big family problems. Airing all of your dirty laundry isn't going to make them go away. And so what, your fundamentalist, tongue speaking relatives aren't interested in your mormon religion. I sure would like to hear the other side of the story, I bet there's a whole lot of oppositional defiance disorder in your closets. I'm not talking religion, but your personality in general. Every family has one, one that turns every conversation into an opportunity for a knockdown dragout.

MikeM., the sight of you pulling up to a family reunion would be enough for most people to want to go back to the motel and lay by the pool. Why, I would rather watch paint dry on the walls as to have you pay me a visit. Most every family has a know-it-all, ratchet jawed, religious fanatic. I doubt I could eat at the same table without wanting to give you an attitude adjustment. So to avoid the temptation to sin, I'd avoid you at all costs.

A family I know of; 3 are Mormon, 2 Baptist, 2 RCC, 1 Buddhist, several are born again fundamentalist, 2 remain uncommited.

Everyone but the fundamentalist consider themselves to be family in spite of striking belief differences. Its about security, maturity in what one believes. The fundamentalist make it clear all 'not them' must divorce, seperate, disown the non-fundamentalist family members ruined by cults and secular education. Is that Gods plan?

If you are both BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS, you are not unequally yoked due to where you assemble. While church doctrines differ and there are problems with most churches when checked against Christ's doctrine,the fact that you are both true Christians makes it right. You may have problems over it though.

Attending separate churches does not make you and your mate unequally yoked. If both of you are Christians that makes you equally yoked. I would prefer to join the same church as my spouse and vice versa. Separate churches can pose problems in the future. It is also divisive and can create unnecessary problems within the household. Much benefit in sharing the same church.

"No", going to a different churches does not make you, "unequally yoke". BUT, before you go any further, it would be wise what church you will attend if you decide to marry. You will find it hard to work in your seperate churches as a team. Denomination may have a role to play in this. If either one of you feels uncomfortable in each others demonination, you may want to find a church were you both are comfortable.

2 Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers

Until she comes back with a response, it's speculation.
Are you out there?
---Jenny on 6/19/07

The unequal yoke is talking about a believer and an unbeliever joining together.
Going to separate churches is only going to cause friction and discord in the long run. Make a plan that when it gets in the way of your family relationship that you will join together.
---john on 6/19/07

(2Cor 6:14)the bible specifically states unbeliever meaning not born again. so whether you go to another church its not the issue for aperson to be ayoke to you is when the person is not born again, hasn't accepted Christ as his/her personal saviour so your not unequally yoked!!!!
---flore5374 on 6/19/07

I don't see any problem from the different churches. The only problem would be if there was a serious difference in your beliefs. Otherwise, I think it's OK, though the same church might be more helpful. Not sure about that, even
