Interreligious marriage is a marriage between couples that are of different religious faith. The issue of interreligious marriage is always trending and hot. This is because interreligious marriage is a family issue and the church is not left out of it. Somehow, where there is an interreligious marriage some people do have a disdain and demean regard to it.

This is coming because of ideas like ‘it is impossible to habit with someone with a different religious faith’. Therefore, interreligious marriage means one falling away from his faith. The marriage that is acceptable is the marriage that is within the same faith. And this kind of marriage presumably will last, and build both couples in the marriage to a better growth in their faith. Unlike interreligious marriage in which the two couples are of different faiths.
However, the prognosis above is based on assumptions and as result do not have any scriptural backing. The life of a Christian is not based on what people are saying but on what he scripture has said. Therefore, in the life of any Christian, what the scripture said is final. And important to say is that this has nothing to do with how someone feels.

It is not about feeling but about the stipulations of the Scripture. The important thing to note is that the Scripture is the code of conduct a Christian has. This implies that any character outside the scripture is misconduct. The scripture therefore, is the standard to weigh the life and character of any Christian.
Where You Belong Matters Not Your Character:
And this is not just about marriage but about all the engagements of the Christian. The instruction or the verdict of the bible is that:
“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
There is this argument from some school of thoughts that the important things are love and the ability to live in peace. And that religion of the individuals involve is very infinitesimal to consider in the marriage. The truth is that Christianity is not about character modification but about belief. And is important to note that an unbeliever is an unbeliever no matter how pleasant his or her character may appear.

The bible injunction says “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers.” It didn’t say “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers with bad characters.” However, before we go forward let’s look at who is an unbeliever. An unbeliever is someone who has rejected the gospel of Christ. A believer is someone who has accepted the gospel of Christ.
The verdict from the Christian perspective therefore is that a believer in Christ should not be equally yoked together with an unbeliever. However, in the video attached to this article, many have divergent views and you have to watch and see what you can make of it.

Correcting This Wrong Notion:
It is very important to correct this wrong idea that has been there even among Christians. And that is what they call “Christian Marriage”. There is no marriage called Christian marriage, it is not scriptural. Marriage is a thing that happens between couples or more depending on the culture of the people involve. However, what we have is Christians in marriage. That is Christian couple in marriage living out their marital life on the auspices of Christian ethics. This is why a Christian going into marriage must start it on the bases of the standard of the scripture. And it is by this, Christian knowledge is nurtured in their family and they bring up children in the manner of the scripture.
