    Two non-christians want me to go into business with them. It's to do with a travel website. The person initiating this business wants us to open a corportion together and the three of us to be board of directors/owners of the business.

    If I do go into business with them, would I be unequally yoked, or does that apply to only marriage?

    I believe "unequally yoked" apllies only to matters of faith, and worship of God.

    If we were to only do business with other Christians, we'd all starve.

    If you live your faith, you will be unequally yoked, but at the same time it will be a wonderful opportunity to witness your faith on a daily and intimate basis. Perhaps they too will discover that they are unequally yoked and come to Christ. Trust the Holy Spirit to guide you.

    angel,

    I agree with Bro. Curtis. This passage taken in context deals with the work of the Lord. We should not work with a known unbeliever in the furtherance of the gospel. This does not necessarily apply to marriage, though other passages teach we should not seek an unbeliever for marriage.

    But we should be wise in who we decide to go into business with. We wouldn't want to do so with someone unethical in their business dealings.
