The New Testament is equally adamant in its position against mixed marriages.Christians should not be "unequally yoked" with unbelievers (that is, with people who do not believe the Christian gospel): "Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. Spiritually, there is nothing in common between Christians and unbelievers. How can the two walk together if they are going in different directions?Evangelicals seek to live a godly life in grateful response to the grace of God; Catholics perform works to merit the graces needed to attain eternal life.What are the implications of the differences between Catholicism and biblical Christianity?Then you and your Christian friend would be free to marry. Note The departure of Catholicism from the biblical truth is so serious that many faithful Catholics are being led astray by a false gospel.It is entirely possible that your Catholic friend is not saved at all.Do you want that to happen to you and your children? He wrote about his childhood experience, how he was raised by a Christian mother and a Catholic father. But he saw no unity at home and he gave up Christianity in disgust when he grew up.

" Answer: First, please understand that we intend no offense in the wording of this question.What do you think, is right or wrong if a Catholic and a Christian were to marry?Answer: I am deeply concerned for you and your friend.The Catholic teaching on this matter is contrary to the Law of God. The Catholic magisterium has no authority to annul the Word of God!The magisterium does not encourage marriage between Catholics and non-Catholic Christians, much less with non-baptized (Hindus, Buddhists, etc); but such marriages are allowed if a special dispensation is granted by higher Catholic authorities. I wish I can tell you to go ahead with your plans, but I would be irresponsible to do so.Catholicism and biblical Christianity are two dissimilar religions built on different foundations.To marry a non-Christian is a violation of the clear will of God.The Old Testament emphatically teaches that God does not permit his people to marry outside of the household of faith.As an evangelical you do not consider that Catholicism is right for you, why should you give it to your children? The first from a Christian woman who has just divorced her Catholic husband; she believed that they could make their marriage work despite the differences in their religions.Over the years I have received heartbreaking letters from fellow Christians who made this tragic mistake. She found out the hard way that Christianity and Catholicism do not mix.
