Christian views on dating non christians
Proverbs sets a very high standard for those with whom we should associate as friends, and surely this standard should not be lowered for those whom one would date.There are some myths out there that people assume to be gospel about dating.He says that God joins the relationship between a man and a woman at the point of marriage.Before that, the couple has to take the initiative.God will tell them if a relationship is right, and God will end it if it's not.All they have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride.
This would not only exclude unbelievers, but it would also exclude many who profess to be believers as well.
Within the context of a friendship relationship, the Gospel can surely be shared.
I would raise another set of standards, which are given to us in the Book of Proverbs.
Assuming that dating is appropriate under certain conditions, the next question is, “Does the Bible forbid dating an unbeliever?
” I think we can all agree that the Bible forbids the Christian from marrying an unbeliever.
But I do know this—if you rely on this idea too much, your dating life will get really confusing.
