Hindu believe in many gods. Christ is just a guru. Why will you want to marry a Hindu? You will be definitely unequally yoked. My goodness, there are probably a hundred christian men you would feel similarily about. Better to not marry him. BE FRIENDS. KEEP IT AT THAT. Invite him to church. Ruth was a Moabite and ONE of the most respected women in scripture. Ruth 1:16 But Ruth replied, Dont urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God." Short of these words, you should not marry him. CAN HE SAY AS RUTH, "YOUR GOD WILL BE MY GOD"? Unless he can claim ABBA and CHRIST, you should not marry him.

Are you a trinity christian person? If so, then there should be No prob's, because the trinity & hindu along with buddha, ala etc gods, the light & inspiration came from here, 2nd.Cor. 11 v 14, Are Man - made religions. They Are NOT of God Almighty.

Ana, God advises that we not be in love with people of other faiths because, even if at first we feel it works out well.....
Our Christian faith gets into too much of our life, and if the two of you get married, in the end, unless he also if Christian, there will be 'tension'
God does not do that because He does not want you to be happy. It is because God knows that there are things, like your emotions for a man, can cause problems for your faith for God
The best is for you to pray that this Hindu boy becomes a Christian

wow Gordon I hit a nerve did I? all I am saying is God tells us to equally yoked. that covers more than one thing. we have boundaries we all should live by. you can pray all you want, but God is not going to honor a marriage that is so unequally yoked. you can say what you please but God has already said it.

It's also testing God. You are in sin!

Yes, you are in sin.

You guys on here telling Ana that "It won't make any difference for you to pray, girl, 'cause you gonna marry da Hindu boy no matter what!" SAY WHAT? Cut her some slack, will ya?? She came here, as far as WE know, asking a sincere question and looking for some sincere Counsel and answers. She may end up marrying him at the end of the day, but, SHE MIGHT NOT. You don't know what she'll really end up doing! How about if you PRAY FOR HER TO BE OPEN TO RECEIVE GOD'S COUNSEL?
---Gordon on 2/13/13|
there is no need to even pray about this one. it won't matter if you pray or not, you are going to do what you wanted to do and that would be a mistake. the bible tells us not to be unequally yoked so Christ has already answered that one for you.

Ana, If you are a real Christian, seek GOD'S Face in Prayer about this, and search HIS Scriptures. II CORINTHIANS 6:14 says that we Believers are not to be "unequally yoked". You, as a Christian, marrying a HINDU is definitely "unequally yoked". You may think that you will influence him to become a Christian. But, if you do not get GOD's Counsel FIRST, Satan will convince you that you can "convert him". But, the flesh nature is more easily influenced into sin, than the new-man is to stand up in the Spirit of Righteousness. Even though Righteousness does prevail and win in the End, it is not always so with individual lives. At least WITNESS to him of the Gospel. See whether he is open to the Truth, first.

Ana, you can pray all you want to God about this marriage if you are not saved. In the end you will marry him, because you will do what you will to do because you will not hear God telling you its ok.
If you were saved, you would not even be asking the question in the first place. You would know God has told believers through His word already not to marry someone outside of your faith. He speaks all the time through His Word, the only thing is that many are not obedying God. Which is really saying, God does not know what is best for your life, you know better. If you are a Christian already, and you do marry him, expect all the consequences that come with your decision.

I do not know what you mean "pray God for our marriage."
Don't tell God who you want to marry. The only reason to marry a particular person is if this person will bring you closer to Jesus. How can marriage to a non-Christian do that?
Better to pray specifically that God will reveal His perfect will for you in this matter.
And wait. There are many things worse than not being married, and most of them are being married to the wrong person.
Glory to Jesus Christ!

Hindu believe in many gods. Hindu teach that Jesus was a guru, one guru among their many gurus.
The only way you would have biblical justification of marriage to him is if you have already joined flesh with him. Then there would be some grounds, and then only if your father goes along with it. But in truth, it is disobeying God for you to join flesh with this man because he is not in Christ. Do you love him more than you love Christ? It is unlikely you will ever be equally yoked unless you convert to the idea of many gods and christ is just one.

Ana - If you are a Christian you will love God and His Son Jesus and you will obey God's Word.
It is not what any person here says that matters, it is only what God says and He says in His Word (the Bible) "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers"
That is all you should go by, not the 'opinions' of other human beings.

Maybe Ana has identified herself in another as being a Christian. I really don't know. But, it appears from the Moderator generated title: "Christian Dating a Hindu" there's been an assumption made that Ana is indeed a Christian even though her question doesn't say so. For all we know, Ana may be a Hindu! So, I need to ask, are you a Christian Ana?
---Leon on 2/6/13|
Ana, I hope you are going to stay and share with us. There is a lot more to this, than if it is wrong or not. How about how to trust in Jesus? Have you trusted in Jesus for salvation and for the forgiveness of your sins and for becoming reconciled with God so He is your Father with us?
Do you understand that Jesus died for us and paid His own blood for us to have all that God means by His word for us?
So, if one Hindu person is impressive enough for you to want to marry him, may be you are too limited. We have so much more than one human to love, in our Heavenly Father's love. God bless you with us (c:

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God, as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people." 2 Corinthians 6:14-16
