LONDON â€” It took ten years for Shafiq and Sarah to decide to get married. The two met through friends while in college and developed a close friendship. But their respective religions â€” Shafiq is Muslim and Sarah is an evangelical Christian â€” held the pair back from romantic involvement.
â€śIt took a long, long time because we both had our faiths and we had to reconcile that,â€ť said the London-born Shafiq, whose parents came to England in the 1960s from Pakistan.
As Muslims become more integrated in the West, marriage to people of other faiths is becoming more commonplace. Nowhere is this more true than in London, perhaps the most cosmopolitan European capital. Muslims make up about 8 percent of the cityâ€™s population and neighborhoods are renowned for their diversity.
The 1960s and 70s Britain saw an influx of immigrants â€” a majority of whom were from South Asia â€“ and their children attended...
i seen this unequal yoke trend as many are ordered in the mosgues/masjid to intermarry with Christian women to try to revert them back to islam .. i always wondered why not many christian read the Bible and heed the warning about being unequally yoked with unbelievers in 2 Corinthians 6
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
This is propaganda for Satan. Encourage those raised with "Christian" influence in their lives to join with a damnable counterfeit religion and make it appear this this such a wonderful thing to make peace on earth.
I don't think that the girl will lose her salvation over this, the ball is in her court so to speak, but God's warning is plain. Maybe we will get lucky and she will convert the man to the winning team. I was just reading about Solomon, the wisest man in history, being led astray by too many foreign spouses and their gods, maybe this girl can use her feminine powers for the good guys for a change.
That girl is if she is truly a christian, has just fallen for the biggest and most common lie of the devil. Either first of all, she will forsake any faith in Jesus she has left, secondly, i wont give it too long afterwards before shafiq and his family will be enticing her to join the muslim faith ...and whallah, another silly western woman snared. Their offspring will be as islamic tradition follows..They will be muslims. She is just setting herself up for nothing but pain and sorrows.
Corinthians 7:13/14 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. 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.
I wouldn`t wish to spoil two young lovers happiness but If Sarah professes to be an "Evangelical Christian", Is she choosing to ignore the warning in 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?
