Relationship With A Muslim
byAnneJuron 20 Sep, 2015 19:17
im a Christian for almost 6 years. Im well aware that having a relationship with a man who doesn't have a faith like yours is a disaster. Im also aware that feelings deceive us so much. I have a relationship with this muslim man for almost two years now. He respect my faith and i respect his too. My churchmates dont know about this yet nor are my parents but my sisters do. I know its wrong not letting them know but i dont like that they will judge us. We do get along very well. I've been also praying for our relationship and he does the same. I want to fight this till the end but my doubts are hindering me. Why there should be boundaries amongst human beings?

We all go through the same path. Love is blind. I have seen marriages between jews and muslims, jews and christians, muslims and christians, whats that supposed to mean muslim? Love surpases everything. You dont look at himas a muslim, you look at him who he is, loves conquer all. Stay true to jesus and let your love not be compromise for faith. That's is different.

Hello Annjur I am going to try and be as simple and straight toward as possible yet am going to try and base my answer on scripture as well. I am assuming the final destination of your relationship with the Muslim guy is marriage. Your situation is not unique. It has happened even in the Bible. Its not wrong to fall in love with someone else but according to the Bible but it is NOT acceptable in the christian faith for a christian to be in a relationship with an unbeliever. Throughout the old testament it has been law for Gods people (the Israelites as at then) to pick a spouse only from the tribe of Israel- among God's people. But I would want to focus more on the new testament since it applies more to us-the church age. Take a peek at these verses: A wife is bound by law as long as her husband lives; but if her husband dies, she is at liberty to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord. I Corinthians 7:39 NKJV
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. 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 unbeliever? II Corinthians 6:14-15 NKJV
A yoke is a wooden bar that joins two oxen to each other and to the burden they pull. An “unequally yoked” team has one stronger ox and one weaker, or one taller and one shorter. The weaker or shorter ox would walk more slowly than the taller, stronger one, causing the load to go around in circles. When oxen are unequally yoked, they cannot perform the task set before them. Instead of working together, they are at odds with one another. Paul discouraged them from being in an unequal partnership with unbelievers because believers and unbelievers are opposites, just as light and darkness are opposites. They simply have nothing in common, just as Christ has nothing in common with “Belial,” a Hebrew word meaning “worthlessness” (verse 15).
Consider this: the Bible says the husband is the head of the wife Eph. 5:23. This statement is not only true in Christianity but in almost every other religion and culture. When you finally get married to the Muslim guy who is to say that his position about your faith is not going to change. Are you going to have a Muslim wedding or christian wedding in a church? Are your children going to be Christians or Muslims? Is his Muslim family going to be okay with anything you do? Are your kids going to have Muslim or christian names? Where I come from, most of these decisions if not all are made by the HEAD and the wife is expected to follow his lead. These are just but a few of the numerous problems that can be mentioned. Take a look at this scripture as well:
For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife? I Corinthians 7:16 NKJV
The same situation arose in the Corinthian church. their argument was that they would lead the unbelieving spouse to salvation after marrying them and this is what Paul by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit wrote to them.
In conclusion, according to the Bible-God's word, it is NOT THE WILL OF GOD that we be in a relationship with unbelievers. If you wish to marry this same guy in the long run, he would have to be a true believer first. Dont get married to him and then try to change him. I would not try to argue with the scriptures because God who knows all things including the future said these things and that makes them true no matter what we think or do. I believe that if you have been led to ask this question concerning your relationship God must be speaking to you about it but you are struggling with what you know is right. I believe without a shadow of doubt that according to the word you should let go of him if he does not want to believe in Jesus. God would make sure someone even better comes your way....afterall every GOOD and PERFECT gift comes from the Father of lights....God bless you so much.

Wow @logeee I needed this word of wisdon just now.. when I went to church few weeks I took my spouse n the sister who talks n teaches open my eye n said I can be unequally yoke because my ex bf is not a Christian believer like I am. she said as long as am with him GOD would never bless me with a good GOD fearing husband, and I toke heed because am a believer of christ. I love the lord with all my heart and soul so if GOD Dont see that as right than miss leave that Muslim alone n let christ take control or you will forever have problems in your life... what wasnt mean GOD will tear apart.
