Do not give your children away to the heathen

Thus saith the Lord through Moses to the Children of Israel when they were almost to the end of the journey to the Promised Land. A whole horde of warnings were given, and this stands out to me this very moment.

How often have Christian Parents allowed marriages of their children to the non-Christian. Only usually resulting in disaster. Some are ignorant. So do so in deliberate ignorance. Some do so with "no choice". Children obey your parents for it is right in the Lord.

Deut 7:3-6
Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. 4 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly. 5 But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire. 6 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

Interesting. 🙂
