Discussion 12

Bless it be the name of the Lord, my lovely readers! I pray that God brought you through a peaceful weekend to the start of a glorious week. Getting straight to the point, an interesting topic was brought up on Twitter: What if a male dated an unbeliever, he shared the Gospel with her, and when she becomes saved, they wouldn’t be unequally yoked anymore? Some of the comments I observed made some valuable points, but I disagreed with them. Why? Well, what’s the definition of an unbeliever? The dictionary says that it means one who lacks/withholds belief or faith, especially in religious matters. Nevertheless, God can use anyone to change an unbeliever’s faith IF they’re willing to be changed. At some point, unbelievers were and still are being converted, and most of the time, by the works of God, a believer was used to convert them. We have a duty to carry on what the disciples started, spreading the Gospel. Jesus spent His time with sinners and unbelievers. I know that the topic is regarding unequally yoked couples, but I’m saying that it’s possible that a relationship can work after an unbeliever had been converted. I’m referring to a female who only likes or respects the idea that her boyfriend is God-fearing. Being converted is being transformed by baptism in Jesus’ name, repenting and turning away from sins, and getting the delicious fill of the Holy Spirit to where you don’t want to go back to your old ways. If an unbeliever is changed in that way, that couple would no longer be unequally yoked. Now, if she doesn’t want to be changed and tries to influence him to sin, then that relationship needs to end quickly. Our mission is to help bring people, including unbelievers, to Christ. However, God allows it to be our choice, and if they choose to remain unbelievers, then we do as the Word says: And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet (Matthew 10-14). We cannot force people to believe, but we can let our light shine ( Matthew 5:16). I would love to know your views on this topic, so please comment below. I pray that you all would have a wonderful and blessed week. Talk to you soon!
