What the bible say about dating non believers

25 Jul

While many start off with intentions of finding a godly partner, with each passing year the waiting feels longer and the hoping gets harder.

Slowly, we can find ourselves starting to second-guess our original standards, wondering if we've been too extreme or unrealistic.

There seemed to be 10 girls for every single available guy in church.

Then there was the pressure of every person I knew asking about my relationship status every time I saw them.

Proverbs - Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it [are] the issues of life.1 Corinthians 13:4-7 - Charity suffereth long, [and] is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 1 Corinthians - Flee fornication.

Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 - For this is the will of God, [even] your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: Deuteronomy 7:3 - Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.1 Corinthians 11:1-34 - Be ye followers of me, even as I also [am] of Christ.

It is important to keep in mind that when a believer marries a non-believer, it can lead the Christian astray.Instead of working together to pull the load, they would be working against each other.While this passage does not specifically mention marriage, it definitely has implications for marriage.The Bible is clear that Christians should not have close friendships with non-Christians.But what does the Bible teach about dating and marriage? Is it a sin for a Christian to date a non-Christian?The passage goes on to say that there is no harmony between Christ and Belial (Satan).There can be no spiritual harmony in a marriage between a Christian and a non-Christian.Second Corinthians (KJV) tells us not to be “unequally yoked” with an unbeliever.The imagery is of two incompatible oxen sharing the same yoke.According to the scriptures, relationships are very important, and faith does matter.After all, faith lays the foundation for your world-views, and world-views will control how you see and respond to the world, and that includes relationships.
