Christian dating non christian bible
I think Jesus clearly shows us that God actually wants us to go deeper than rules and laws when it comes to how we live for Him. I think the deeper question has to be ‘What kind of relationship do I want to build? Do you want to date someone who goes to the same church?
’ The Deeper Question When Christians ask me ‘Should I date a Non-Christian’, I always respond by asking ‘What kind of relationship do you want to build? Do you want one where you are both spurring each other on to make God the centre of your life and choices? ’ Then I ask ‘Do you think the person you like will help you achieve that?
Paul realises it isn’t black and white all the time and God still wants to be involved in their relationship no matter what.
However, Paul thinks the ideal for marriage is rooted in the couple’s relationship with God.
In fact, this is about more than the pews they sit, or don’t sit on, on a Sunday. It becomes about more then ticking the ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ box, and about preparing, with God in mind, how we can build something worth having with that potentially special someone.
It becomes about thinking what our priorities actually are. Why do you think a lot of Christians say dating a non-Christian is ‘wrong’?
Moreover, Paul’s vision for husbands laying down their lives and wives submitting, can only be achieved if the spouses believe in Christ and his achievements.
Many have probably been told by someone in the church that it’s wrong, it’s bad and they shouldn’t do it. But they want to be in a relationship and there is nothing wrong with that.After this point, you could even argue there was a cultural assumption that you marry within your own religion. Now I’m not saying marrying a non-Christian is right or wrong, that’s not the point.But whether you agree with David or not, I think partner selection in dating and marriage still comes down to a deeper question.The ‘rules’ and teaching in the Bible about marrying a non-believer are more about the cultural situation rather than some divine command.While his article is interesting, I would argue his conclusion has overlooked some key points.
Often Christians are in a church with an uneven number of single Christian guys and girls.
