arriage is a sacred relationship. It's the foundation on which families are built and the cornerstone of our society. It's also one of the most important decisions you'll ever make in your life. If you're going to get married, it's important to know what it means to be equally yoked with your spouse—both in terms of religion and personality traits.

What Does Equally Yoked Mean?

Being equally yoked means that you and your partner are both Christians, on the same spiritual level, committed to the same beliefs and values, and following God's plan for your life. When you are equally yoked with someone else in Christ it means that one or both of two people have accepted Jesus Christ as their savior. It also means that they're going through a process of repentance (turning away from sin) so they may live according to what the Bible teaches.

If you haven't been born again yet but want to become a Christian then you should get baptized in water as soon as possible because this shows that Jesus died on the cross for your sins so that you could be forgiven by God Almighty Himself! You'll need help from others if there's anything stopping them from accepting this gift from our Lord Jesus Christ; there might be some kind of emotional blockage preventing them from truly realizing how much God loves us all equally! Remember: everyone deserves salvation no matter how bad their past may have been."

What does the Bible say about being unequally yoked?

The Bible tells us that it is a bad thing to be unequally yoked. In 2 Corinthians 6:14, Paul writes “Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?” Paul is saying that if you are going to have a relationship with someone, make sure it is someone who shares your beliefs and will go along with them. If they don't have the same values as you do then they're an "unbeliever."

How do you know if you're being unequally yoked?

How do you know if you're being unequally yoked?

In order for this to make sense, we have to be clear on what it means to be “equally yoked.” To be equally yoked means that both parties in the relationship share the same values and goals, and they affirm one another's faith. In other words, two people who are equally yoked will support each other's spiritual life and help each other grow as Christians. They'll share similar beliefs about God and Jesus Christ, and they'll pray together regularly (1 Corinthians 7:14).

This isn't always easy—and there are many different types of relationships where two people come from different faiths or various backgrounds. But if your future spouse won't share your faith (or doesn't seem interested in learning more about it), then you might want to reconsider getting married at all!

Why is it bad to be unequally yoked?

  • You are unequally yoked.
  • You will be unhappy.
  • You will not have a good relationship.

How do I find my Godly spouse and avoid being unequally yoked?

How do you find your Godly spouse?

The best way to find a Godly spouse is through a church. If you are looking for a good man/woman who shares the same beliefs as you, it would be wise to attend church regularly and get involved with the members of that congregation.

  • Look for someone who goes to church regularly and has similar moral standards as yours.
  • Ask them about their relationship status, how many past relationships they have had, and if they have any children.


Finding your Godly spouse or partner is a great way to avoid being unequally yoked in the first place. If you want to find out more about how you can find this person, check out our blog post on how to do just that.
