Years ago I received a tract entitled, " The Unequal Yoke - Will It Work? (1). " The key scripture associated with this tract is:-


Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? ( 2 Corinthians 6: 14 )


The Christian woman who wrote the tract confessed that she married an unsaved man. She said she didn?t wait long enough to get the Lord?s will in the matter. Even the pastor of her church, who was a well known conference speaker, encouraged her to go through with the marriage.


After she was married her spouse brought his unsaved, drinking friends into the home and caused her a lot of grief. Over 25 years later she stated we are still married but the husband is not yet saved.


In this tract the woman relates her bitter experience when she chose her own way and ignored God? s Word. She said, " I expected he would walk with me in the ways of the Lord ... but I watched my husband going deeper in sinful living. "


Not mentioned in the tract is the fact that a yoke is a wooden bar or frame that joins two animals, such as oxen together. Once they are joined, they cannot go in separate directions, but must work side by side.
