Christian dating a non christian verse
Is it a help or a hindrance to their spiritual health? Unfortunately, too many people do not take into account the extremely serious situation of children and their eternal destiny.Yet, because of "love" and because they listen to their hearts over the Word of God, many people marry unbelievers anyway... If you are already married to an unbeliever then you need to love him/her as best you can, set a good example of being a Christian, and pray for your spouse's salvation. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a pretty awkward first date to me.The system today's young men and women have inherited for finding and marrying a future spouse leaves a lot to be desired.The modern-day concept of “dating” looked far different 2,000 years ago.The process of meeting a spouse had very little to do with compatibility and personality traits, and everything to do with family lineage and economic status.
I never would have considered dating a non-Christian. In fact, “loves God and puts Him first” was always on the top of the list of what I was looking for. It started as impatience, but it soon developed into a rampaging beast of unbelief, doubt, and worst of all, hopelessness. You go to youth group, you love Jesus, you meet someone, you graduate high school, you get married, and as the fairy tales say, “You live happily ever after.” When I was 19 I was ready. At 27, I understood and accepted that God was using the last few years to prepare me for marriage. Growing up in the church, I thought I had a solid understanding of how my story would play out.But though Scriptures are filled with foundational life-changing truths, there are still some topics that are left untouched when it comes to finding a biblical perspective.In fact, I have to chuckle to myself whenever someone asks me to give a “biblical” perspective on dating.
