Yes, you and your boyfriend could be totally unyoked. And knowing God— He refuses to share His glory with your little sorta-saved boyfriend so—most likely, He already told you to break that off.
Now, by faith— continue to choose Christ and the light. Block him from social media, change your number— do what you have to do. They may not accept or understand your walk with God and criticize you for it. Stand firm in love. What would you say if satan came up to you and said.. Would you believe him? We sit in church on Sunday for one hour a week and we live the rest of the hours a week like no God exists on this earth. Although they may not be satan—they live their life like they belong to Him.
That is how we know we are living in Him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did. If you belong to God—you will live in the light and stay in the light and make decision that line up with His word. They guard their heart. So I challenge you. Stop telling me that you belong to Jesus if you hate someone that hurt you. A man has to want God for himself. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? For we are the temple of the living God.
Is your master GOD or satan? Your lifestyle best identifies with who your father is. An unequally yoked boyfriend or girlfriend can pull you so far away from Christ. Nobody is going to know—I just want to be one with you.
Is it right for a Christian to date or marry a non-Christian?
All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?
You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. Your relationship will only get worse as you push God to the outside of it. Remember those that choose Christ are abiding in the light. Remember that our relationships are supposed to push us closer to God—not away from Him.
They can weaken your faith. You cannot tip-toe around this area. You would have to leave this world to avoid people like that. I meant that you are not to associate with anyone who claims to believe yet indulges in sexual sin, or is greedy, worships idols, abusive, is a drunkard or cheats people. You may be thinking that this is a bit extreme. If you continue to read that same scripture—it says to JUDGE the person inside the church who claims to be a Christian yet indulges in sexual sin.
If you have a friend who you are watching go downhill in a certain area—talk to them in a loving way about this.
Why Being Unequally Yoked Is More Dangerous Than You Think
But check and pull your emotions together before you speak to them. More than anything- be GOD led. He just said GO. You have chicks around you that are dropping seeds of doubt in your head? Of course they are. The proof is in the pudding. You get around that girl—and you find that you complain, gossip and feel heavy after leaving her presence. Back to the story—God told Abraham to get away from His family because his family worshiped idols. God needed Abraham to GET away from those people that were framing his thinking. They had influence on him. Your life is much greater than having a billion friends and a ring on your left ring hand finger.
At some point, we have to learn to trust God concerning these temporary things. YES 1 Corinthians 7: Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy. So if you are married— continue to pray and ask God for grace. You will remember my words if you do.

At the end of the day, this Christian walk is going to cost you something. You are required to DIE. So, you may think.. Also, baby Lindsey is a BOY! I will be blogging more moving forward! Have you signed up for the Pinky Promise Conference? We would love to meet you! WOW I was recently baptized this past September after years of being a so-called "Christian"living in constant sin.
I'm now a strict follower of the Bible. I found about you randomly on twitter and its so encouraging to finally find someone being very real and upfront following the Bible.!! Thank you, your pinky promise campaign is inspiring! I have been waiting on this! It is really hard. I live w 7 ppl, and I am the only one attempting to live according to the bible.
I guess my question is, What do yu do when you're unequally yoked w your fam, and yu cant just "go"? I updated it and included that above! Keep those eyes focused on Christ! Thank you Heather for this wonder post.
It was very nourishing to my ever so growing spirit! To the anonymous post above… I kind of know where you're coming from. I say this to you in response; God will never give you more than what He feels you can handle. Maybe God put a calling on you to be the light that your family needs!
Play your role well!!! God is using you. Before you know it as Heather stated in her post your quit and gentle spirit — 1 Peter 3: Direct your questions to Him and "He will" answer them.
I love this post. Can you speak on breaking soul ties after you have been involved in an unequally yoked relationship…. I love this blog Heather! Choosing to live for God, and being willing to make the sacrifices to actually walk the Christian walk the right way surely is not easy, but I know it's worth it.
I have seen and heard several situations where my girlfriends are in relationships thinking they can "change" their guys.
