DO NOT BE YOKED WITH UNBELIEVERS (by benaiah juma) (Edited 8th August 2017).
2Co 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
2Co 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
2Co 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
2Co 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
2Co 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
The word of God is teaching us here on how to relate with unbelievers. In the word of God you can see in other verses the lord Jesus Christ eating with unbelievers and in this verse and other scriptures we are advised not to have fellowship with unbelievers. You are not supposed to hang out with unbelievers if you are not teaching them about our lord and savior Jesus Christ or if you are not reproving their unfruitful works of darkness.
If a relationship with a believer and unbeliever can go on for a long time it is because the believer is not reproving the unfruitful works of darkness or maybe the unbeliever is derailing the believer further away from God. If you are not talking about God with an unbeliever or doing something fruitful for God you are advised not to hang out with them. There is no relationship between righteousness and unrighteousness, good and evil, e.t.c. Children of the world are of the devil and children of light belong to God.
God and Lucifer have nothing in common. When you hang out with unbelievers you are deluding down Christ. When you are a believer and you are hanging out with people that are sinning and doing abominable things, you are putting Christ to an open shame. You cannot hang out with people who are drinking beer and talking about football and doing things that displease the creator and you are a believer and you fail to reprove the acts of darkness, that is not of Christ.
If you hang out with unbelievers without reproving their sins you are just as good as them. You will win nobody to Christ mixing in with sinners. If you mix in with sinners you will just be as good as them and they will not feel like they need to change. When you reprove there unfruitful works of darkness and come separate that is when they will feel weird and they will realize that some things are not acceptable. Basically you are contributing to a new age Christianity if you stay and enjoy the company of sinners, because if you are mixed in everything is acceptable but if you call them abominations and come separate then all things are not acceptable.
Do not be mixed in with sinners you will go to the pit, you have nothing in common. Demons come in through friendship with unbelievers. Being yoked with unbelievers is disobedience to the word of God and you will get a demon through that friendship because of forming soul ties with unbelievers. When you are yoked with an unbeliever, you form a soul tie with that person, you become flesh of the flesh and the demons that are operating in their lives can be passed over to you because of the soul tie.
If you are hanging out with girls who dress skimpy you will also get the spirit of seduction and if you are not careful you will also behave like them. You cannot win anyone to Christ if you are in a place where all your friends are in the world and are sinning and you are the only one there that knows Jesus Christ, you will not convert anyone, they will convert you. The only thing that you can do is come separate and evangelize to them and get out of there as quickly as possible and pray for them.
Friendship with the world is enmity with God. When you are a believer and you enjoy gospel music the unbelievers will love worldly music, when you love decency the unbelievers enjoy indecency and call it fashion, when you enjoy giving God respect, the unbelievers enjoy showing God disrespect, when you enjoy going to church, the unbelievers enjoy spending their time in the clubs, when you love embracing the truth, the unbelievers hate and reject the truth.
There is no relationship between light and darkness at all. The Holy Spirit dwells in the soul of believers while the world cannot receive the spirit of truth because it goes against what they believe. Being yoked with unbelievers is sin. Enjoying the company of people who disrespect God daily is an abomination before God. Come out of the world and serve God in peace because if you stay mixed in with unbelievers you will have problems in your Christian walk and you will possibly be derailed from Jesus Christ. Be blessed.
