There are stories of Christians going out with non-Christians who subsequently give their life to God and the two go on to get married.But there are many more stories to the contrary of great heartache and eventual splitting of partners either before or after marriage - sometimes much later in life.Since the beginning of humankind, we have been experiencing the pull towards that, which is “forbidden.” God says, “no” to some things, and just like Eve in the Garden of Eden, we allow ourselves to entertain the question, “Did God actually say…” This is no less true as it pertains to Christians dating non-Christians —the “forbidden fruit.” It can be tempting to go out with someone we are attracted to and think, “this one time won’t hurt.” But then the temptation arises to go out on another occasion, and then another.
You're going to have to go for a couple of weeks before you get to know anyone and even then you may not end up in a position to approach the person you like. Church hopping is not a sin but it's not a good way to find a partner.
You can introduce people whom you know have an interest in each other.
With an issue like no physical intimacy before marriage it'll take two to say 'no' for absolute certain.
When one is indifferent or weak in their stance here, temptation will be hard or impossible to resist so decide BEFOREHAND to do the right thing!
- Should I ask that non- Christian guy out at work? Should we consider dating a non-Christian partner outside the church when one inside seems so elusive As ever The Holy Bible offers practical advice to real problems!
A mature Christian woman dating a spiritually immature man: This may or may not worry you but consider the fact that the bible says the man should be the spiritual leader in a relationship.
It can be like talking to someone who "isn't home" for want of a less arrogant sounding description. It is true that many non-Christians have good relationships (though they could never be as fulfilling as a right relationship in which both partners included God) With one believer and one nonbeliever. Having established that it's praobably best not to seriously date a non-Christian (though this may not always be the case), how can we improve our chances of meeting someone?
You can visit different churches but this is a very inefficient way to meet someone.
However, that doesn’t mean that you should be “yoked” with him or her in the sacred relationship of marriage. She decided the baby, that God promised to Abraham and to her, wasn’t going to come unless she made it happen.
And please don’t pull a “Sarah” where you take matters in your hands because of your doubts. So she manipulated her husband to sleep with her maid servant so a baby was born.
Because of Sarah’s boldness to make this “promise” happen in only the way SHE thought it could, there have been negative repercussions for many generations, to this day.
