Brother Tim,

I think that there is a gap between that which is sin and that which is not a sin.
Ok...I agree. Ignorance fills that gap. So we are agreed that if one marries an unbeliever ignorantly then they have not sinned...But not willfully or even doubting if you want to apply that verse to this.

The context of Romans 14:22 is food and going against your conscience.

I fully admitted earlier that if you ignorantly married an unbeliver that is different than willfully marrying one.

If you are wanting to apply this verse to the topic though, if you are doubting whether or not it is right to marry and you do it doubting then that is also sin.

As to Hebrews 12:1 -

Luke 18:25 For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Of course as you said it is not a sin to be rich, but it certainly can be a weight hindering you in your walk with God.

I don't see where there is a gray area between righteousness and unrighteousness except in ignorance.
