Dating a non christian girl
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.This isn’t just an abstract concept for them; it’s a real issue.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.And dating a non-christian isn’t a route to unthinkable dating horrors either. While we can’t just apply Bible verses about marriage to modern dating dilemmas, it can help us think through some helpful principles.
’ 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?However, the truth is, going out with a Christian doesn’t mean your relationship will automatically honour God.
