Dear Aunty Lisa
I am a Christian young woman engaged to “Ben,” who is not a Christian. Throughout our relationship, has always encouraged me in my faith. It’s one of the things I love about him.
When we announced our engagement, I received several emails from the prophet of my church telling me that, because the Bible says Christians shouldn’t marry non-Christians, I need to end my engagement. Since then many others at my church have been telling me the same thing.
I’m happy with my decision to marry this good man, whom I love. I believe that marrying Ben is not a sin, and that God will bless my marriage. But I do not know how to deal with people at my church saying that I’ll be living in sin if I marry Ben.
Can you help me handle this?
