Dating a nonchristian
It’s about the display of the glory of God at work through our relationship (Ephesians -33).
Marriage is a glorious display of Christ and the Church—of sacrifice, and the laying down of our lives for one another.
Dating an unbeliever can hinder your relationship with Christ.
Being around an ungodly person can make you start to sin more, act in a different way, talk in a different way, be led astray, and always remember if your life is all about Christ you won’t be able to express and share things about Christ which all believers love to do because there is no connection. There is no point of dating someone if you don’t plan on marrying them and I’ve heard many bad stories about believers who married an unbeliever. So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful to the wife of your youth.5.
Is it really that big of a deal to date a non-Christian?
– Tired of Being Single Dear Tired, First of all, I get where you’re coming from.
I’m interested in getting to know him more—the only problem is he’s not a Christian.
Especially if you grew up in the church, you’ve probably heard people say that Christians should not marry non-Christians.When you enter a relationship with Jesus, you’re not simply a “better version” of yourself, you are made absolutely new.Again, I realize you’re just asking about dating, not about marriage yet, but I’m going to jump ahead to marriage because even if you’re not sure that is where the relationship will end up, that possibility should be a consideration when you’re deciding who to date.This statistic rings true for all belief systems, because having this integral part of our identity in common is like strings that hold two people together.But above and beyond the strings of “commonality,” believers in Christ are held together by something even greater: the Spirit of God who lives, breathes and works in us and through us.
