A Warning Against Being "Unequally Yoked."

There is a complete incompatibility between the values of the world and the values of the people of God. "Points of agreement" can exist only in "surface issues"; for at the heart of the matter, there will be nothing in common. This is why close ties with unbelievers tend to create serious problems and conflict. Scripture uses the concept of "yoke" to illustrate this issue. (Not "yolk," as in "egg yolk.")
