exactly. If you are a Christian, its alright to mix with the heathen, because they need help...think about who Jesus went with. He steered well clear of the religious of his day, even though they were Jewish and GODs Chosen...instead he went to the sick and healed, or he went to the sinful and forgave them, the rabble that followed him were litterally that...except for Saint Paul, they all had extremely humble and socially low positions prior to following Christ.
As this is a War Effort that we are engaged in, it should be your LAST thought to abandon anyone who needs saving...instead you have personal access to future Christians GOD willing of course
and he will, which is why he speaks through Saint Paul to tell you to respect their wishes if they want a devorce...but if they do not, stay with them, and lead them to Christ with your example
