" If You Marry A Non Christain , You Have Disobeyed God " - Pastor Faith Oyedepo Warns Christains

Pastor Faith Oyedepo is currently setting Twitter on fire and garnering mixed engagement. She took to her verified account @faithoyedepo to subtly issue stern warning to christains not to marry an unbeliever with the intention of converting him or her after marriage. She further said Christian marrying a non-Christian is disobedience to God’s Word, and is equal to building on a faulty foundation.

Here's the screenshot of the tweet on her verified page below 

Don’t be deceived, you can’t marry an unbeliever with the intention of converting him or her after marriage; you are not the Holy Spirit! A Christian marrying a non-Christian is disobedience to God’s Word, and is equal to building on a faulty foundation.

It is not completely unacceptable; however it is not recommended to participate in an interfaith marriage. In Catholicism, adherents are even discouraged to marry Protestants. This problem comes down to how each spouse may draw each other away from the Faith. If your husband is a devout Muslim and your wife is a devout Catholic that will certainly lead to some problems. There are some similarities, such as periods of fasting, Muslims fast during Ramadan and Catholics during Lent. They also both share a devotion to Mary

Here are some reactions to her tweet below 

And how different have believers proved to be with the high divorce rate in church even after parental and pastoral blessing? Abeggy - Burning bush 

Not like am against this statement but the said believers who marry each other, keep divorcing, some killing their partners plus infidelity in marriages is alarming, what actually went wrong? - Nonojtravels and tours

Is it okay in Christianity for a Christian to marry a non-Christian? Share your thoughts below
