Christian dating non believer
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.I'm in pretty deep, but unless he makes a commitment to follow Jesus I don't think I can marry him. For a sincere and dedicated believer, the Lord’s will is always the bottom line.At the same time, if there's a chance that he may accept Christ, I don't want to break things off and throw away the most wonderful relationship I've ever experienced. As we see it, your biggest cause for concern has to do with the depth of your emotional attachment to this young man.If you were thinking about dating a non-Christian don’t.You probably think nothing will happen, it doesn’t matter, you know better than God, but you’re wrong.What I mean is this: if fighting in your dating world means hitting, pushing, shoving, name calling, yelling, manipulating, or anything rude that occurs on a consistent basis then, of course, turn walk away. In bad relationships, bad things happen and will continue to happen if you let them. Wisdom always does now what brings satisfaction later.
I want to also remind you this, don’t date someone just because they go to church because many people who say they’re Christians are not truly Christians.
