partnering with paganism

Deuteronomy 7:2 and when Yahveh your God delivers them over to you and you defeat them, you must completely eliminate them. Make no treaty with them and show them no mercy.
Deuteronomy 7:3 You must not intermarry with them, and you must not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons,
Deuteronomy 7:4 because they will turn your sons away from me to worship other gods. Then Yahveh’s anger will burn against you, and he will rapidly exterminate you.

partnering with paganism

These instructions may seem severe, but they are extremely wise. The objective of the Mosaic mission was a land dedicated to God. Treaties and mixed marriages with those dedicated to idols would defeat the mission.

Likewise, we who have a mission from our Savior need to take great care not to get caught up in foolishness of the ungodly by forming alliances and partnering with them. They are our mission, but we must not let ourselves or our children be theirs.

Lord, in our zeal to reach the nations for Christ, give us wisdom to know how not to partner with paganism.
