    As long as they share the same core beliefs, (i.e. divinity of Christ, virgin birth, atoning death, justification by faith alone, and literal resurrection) then they're fine. That applies to protestant religions, when you start mixing protestant and catholic (bastard religion created in 313 AD by Constantine by mixing christian & pagan beliefs) or Mormon or JW (both semi-christian cults) then there's trouble.

    Catholic Christians, and Protestant Christians don't have the same beliefs. There are so many different denominations of Protestant Christians that don't have the same beliefs about who Jesus is either. How can you marry someone for life, that doesn't believe as you do? How would the children be raised? So, yes, even though you still may both be called Christians, you could still be considered unequally yoked.

    No, I don't think it would be considered 'being unequally yoked'! That phrase only takes action when it's a christian with a non-christian!

    Yes it is because if they have different beliefs how could they possibly be yoked evenly?

    Yes and no, different demonations of Christians are fine but mixing Christians with different religions is not.

    No people are not yoked. That is something you do to livestock when you harness them. xx
