Today’s question is, “Should a Christian
go into business with an unbeliever?” In this video I’ll answer that question
from a biblical perspective. Then afterwards, as always, I’ll share some
helpful resources, so stick around until the end. The question of whether a Christian should
go into business with an unbeliever is a common one. The most often-quoted Scripture is “Do not
be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have
in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14). Many times, this verse is taken to be a prohibition
against Christians marrying non-Christians. Marriage would definitely apply here, but
there is nothing in the context to limit it to marriage. All types of “unequal yokes” are forbidden—marriages,
intimate friendships, and, in many instances, business partnerships. The command implies that a great difference
exists between a believer and an unbeliever. Generally speaking, the motivations, goals,
and methods of a Christian are incompatible with those of an unbeliever. Faith changes the character of a person. A Christian’s highest ambition in life is
to glorify the Lord Jesus and please Him in all things; an unbeliever is, at best, indifferent
to such goals. If a Christian’s methods and goals in business
are identical to the methods and goals of an unbeliever, the Christian very likely needs
to reevaluate and reconsider his/her priorities. Second Corinthians 6:14 goes on to ask, “What
fellowship can light have with darkness?” People are said to be “in fellowship”
when they share something. Business partners are united in such a way
that they must share things—what belongs to one also belongs to the other. This is precisely what is meant by “fellowship.” With these principles in mind, it is best
to avoid uniting with unbelievers in business. If a Christian is truly seeking to honor the
Lord through the business, conflict with the unbelieving business partner is unavoidable. “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” (Amos 3:3). Want to learn more?
