Pastor Greg Laurie’s Promotion of Equally Yoked Rule in Regards to Marriage Plays Role in Why So Many Christian Women Remain Single Over a Life Time

Pastor Greg Laurie’s Promotion of Equally Yoked Rule in Regards to Marriage Plays Role in Why So Many Christian Women Remain Single Over a Life Time

I’ve done more than one post on this blog high-lighting and explaining how and why the Christian insistence on the “equally yoked” rule in regards to marriage leaves many marriage-minded Christian single women single over a life time.

If you are a Christian single woman who wants to marry,  take it from me, who was once a very committed Christian who was “relying on the Lord” for a husband (and yes, I even tried dating sites at one time), you have to take marriage where you can find it, even if that means marrying a Non-Christian.

There are simply not as many single Christian men as there are women, and the Christian single men who exist may (Link): not be marriage material, to under-state things.

You really have to look at a man’s character, not what religious label he slaps on to himself. An atheist man, or a Jewish man, or a guy who practices Wicca, or what have you, may treat you better than a guy who says he’s a Christian and who also attends church regularly.

April 2018

Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in California recently advised a Christian woman who’s in a long-term relationship with a nonbeliever that she should break up with him.

“Someone wrote to me recently and asked about the relationship with the guy she’s been involved in for four years. She says he’s not into God, he’s not into religion, and he’s dragging her down spiritually,” Laurie said in a Facebook video posted on Friday.

“What should she do? Ready for the answer? Break up with him!” he said.

“The Bible says, ‘Don’t be unequally yoked together with nonbelievers, for what friendship does light have with darkness?'” he added, referring to 2 Corinthians 6:14.

Many Christian women (I remain somewhat Christian these days) are left single for a lifetime for following such advice. I am now over the age of 45 and remain never-married.

If I were to meet a decent, loving Non-Christian guy with whom I am compatible now, I would not hesitate to marry him, with all due respect to Rev. Laurie and all the other Christians out there who keep putting obstacles into the paths of single women who’d like to marry.

Very easy to preach this “equally yoked” nonsense in regards to marriage when you are ALREADY MARRIED and have a spouse.

Not so easy when you’re over age 45, would still like to marry, and there are not many prospects out there.

I’ve discussed this topic in numerous other, older posts on this blog, so I’d ask anyone interested to please use this blog’s search box or tags to find such posts – most of them are under the “equally  yoked” tag.
