Where the world comes to study the Bible

2 Corinthians 6:14

Mark Twain

Mark Twain married a Christian lady. She at first didn’t want to marry, but later did. He at first went through the motions of religion with her, but later said he couldn’t keep up the hypocrisy. In time, she came to the place where she no longer believed in a personal God. During a time of deep grief, Twain said to his wife, “If your Christian faith will comfort you, go back to it.” She replied, “I have none.”

Ox and Ass

Cf. Deuteronomy 22:9-11

Principle:
What God has joined, we must not separate.
What God has separated, we must not join.

Unequal yoking is:

Unfitting - Different in size, temperament, strength. Ox clean, Ass unclean.
Unfair - Both would suffer pain, discomfort. A poor working combination.
