Today is Monday, the 30th day of May in the year 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of 2 Corinthians 6:14.
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.2 Corinthians 6:14.
Now, what does the bible say about being unequally yoked together with unbelievers?
Let’s look at the above scripture in its whole context.
For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial?
Or what part has a believer with an unbelievers? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols?
For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God and they will be my people.”
Therefore, ” come out from among them and be seperate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean. And I will receive you.”
” I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
In the above passage, we can see how the writer, Paul clearly warns Christians not to associate with unbelievers.
And carefully studying the above scriptures, we can see that the unbelievers he was making reference to were the Jews and Pagans.
Judaism and Paganism are 2 forms of religion; that share features that involved animal sacrifice.
Though the Jews were offering their sacrifice to God for the atonement of sins as Moses instructed them, the Pagans were offering their own to idols.
After the animals were sacrificed, the remains were cooked and eaten by the worshippers.
Consequently, Christianity itself was birthed from Judaism.
But since Christ had just sacrificed himself to take away the sins of the world, he did put an end to animal sacrifice; and so it was forbidden for the early Christians to participate in it nor even eat any meat that came from it.
So if a Christian should sit down to a meal with a Pagan and another Christian or even Pagan sees it, they are going to condemn or pass judgment on such Christian.
And that was the very reason Paul warned Christians to keep away from the Pagans as we can see in the next text.
