We are continuing our study of verses most commonly taken out of context. The majority of times I have heard this verse quoted out of context is when well-meaning brethren or believers are showing that Unequally yoked meaning marriage teaches that a Christian must not marry a non-Christian. There are a few reasons why reading this passage this way is a misuse of the passage… II.
I have heard people say that they were not equally yoked with someone because of a different upbringing, decision making process, beliefs, finances, education, location and even appearance. That stuff has nothing to do with being equally yoked! A relationship with another person could be a marriage. If two people go to church together that does not mean that they are equally yoked. If one person goes to one church and the other person goes to another church, can they still be equally yoked?
