Dear Aunty Lisa
I am a Christian young woman engaged to a boyfriend who is not a Christian. Throughout our relationship, he has always encouraged me in my faith. It’s one of the things I love about him. He owns some businesses and drives several luxurious cars.
He does everything and anything you can think of for me. We both make each other happy.
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 him 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 him. Can you help me handle this?
