    Hello, I am new here and I hope you are all doing great. I am glad to be a part of this community and in joining different communities I hope I get to learn and share from the rest.

    I was born in a Christian family and all my life the only religion I've ever known is Christianity. I am engaged to a Muslim and I'm told to convert before I can be allowed to marry him else if we get married I am to convert.
    I don't want to convert and I don't want to leave my fiancée either, I'm at crossroads and I'm hoping a few pieces of advice here and there may go a long way.

    Hello @ChildofGod001, WELCOME TO CF :wave: I'm glad that you found us and joined in the discussions with us :)

    That said, you have come here at a difficult crossroads indeed because, as I'm sure you are aware, Christians are commanded to marry other Christians for several very important reasons (and we must never convert to a different faith, of course).

    Having an intimate relationship with an unbeliever can quickly turn into something that is a hindrance to your walk with Christ. If you marry an unbeliever, how will the two of you cultivate a spiritual intimacy in your marriage, and how can a quality marriage be built and maintained if you disagree on the most crucial issue in the universe—the Lord Jesus Christ?

    Perhaps @Hazelelponi can offer you some helpful advice as she has already done what you are now considering doing.

    Praying for you!!

    --David

    2 Corinthians 6
    14 Do not be bound together/unequally yoked with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?
    15 Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever?

    Welcome to the forum.

    I have found that God does the deepest work in us in the area of relationships.

    Having a spiritual unity in marriage is critical.

    Having an equal yoke in marriage is critical.

    What is your church saying about it ???

    Do you know what the bible says about it ?

    God will not guide you to do something the bible prohibits.

    Can you pray about it with Church leaders ?

    Hi and welcome to CF!

    Does your fiance attend to church with you? Have you attended a mosque with him? Where will you be married?

    Islam is a cruel religion. Better to remain single than to become the slave of a cruel master.

    I wouldn't convert to a religion for a man.

    First of all, myself being a convert from Islam to Christianity all I can say is that it's wrong on every core level there is. If you believe in even the possibility of God then don't convert - half hearted or not.

    Second, the spirit that is over the man will be over your household. There is a reason Muslim women cannot marry Christian men but Muslim men can marry their women - and it's spiritual first. You being from a Christian house don't want an unholy spirit over your own house, and over your children, and over you.

    I cannot stress enough that if this man is refusing to marry you without your conversion to Islam then you will end up finding yourself in a very bad place down the road that you will be lucky to escape from. Any kind of mixed faith marriage is hell and exceedingly unwise, but a man demanding you convert? This marriage will not go well.
