marry a nonbeliever? Notice that the question isn't is it wise or a good idea, but is it an actual sin and offense against God?
2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
But we know that people were married to nonbelievers.
1 Corinthians 7
12 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.
13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.
Some believe this passage refers to people who were married before salvation.
1 Corinthians 7 20 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.
Second question: What does "the unbeliever is sanctified by the spouse," mean?
