” This is a clear instruction from the apostle Paul that Christians are not to be bound together (in a marital/physical relationship) with non-Christians.Christians have been declared righteous in Christ and have been brought into the light of the truth.They should not have intimate fellowship with those that have not been declared righteous and are still in spiritual darkness.
