What does 2 Corinthians 6:14 mean, “Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?” What is the context of 2 Corinthians 6:14? What did Paul mean when he wrote this to the Corinthian church? And how can Christians apply these words to our lives today?
In this Bible study, Wes McAdams and Travis Pauley consider the overall theme of 2 Corinthians, Paul’s defense of his apostleship. And how that theme applies to 2 Corinthians 6:14. They also consider other things Paul wrote about associating with unbelievers:
- Did Paul expect Christians to cut all ties with unbelievers?
- Was it ok for a Christian to be married to an unbeliever?
- Was it ok for Christians to have unbelieving friends?
We hope this Bible study encourages us all to, “cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God” (2 Corinthians 7:1).
This episode of the Bible Study Podcast is part of the, “What Does This Passage Mean?” series. During this series, Wes and various guests will study a different passage of the Bible in context.
