1. Leads to double standards

2. Leads to hypocrisy in the fellowship

A. Marrying outside the faith is an affront to God

2. It is an assault on the worship of God

3. It is in direct disobedience to God’s word ( II Cor. 6:14-15)

B. Marrying outside the faith is inviting God’s judgment (v. 12a)

1. Due to the profaning of God’s holiness

2. Due to willfully disobeying God

3. Due to the hypocrisy of unrepentant worship

1. The unbelieving spouse cannot be converted (I Peter 3:1-5)

2. The believing spouse should end the marriage (I Cor. 7:12-13)
