I think it is true that our young people date too young, and that many dating situations are unwise in that they create unnecessary temptations and, even if nothing wrong takes place, a couple’s actions may give the appearance of evil.
Bible verses about dating non christians
Yet, what do you do when you become attracted to one of those non-Christians? What does the Bible say about dating non-believers, and how do you apply that in the world you live in?
Most people consider it missionary dating when you date a non-believer thinking that you will "convert" him or her to Christianity.
A man and woman was designed and created by God to have a spiritual, physical, and emotional relationship.
A prime factor in the failure of marriages in our culture is the lack of spiritual relationship between a husband and wife.
I suspect that this would be an inferential conclusion, and thus would have to be considered a matter of personal conviction, rather than as a clear biblical prohibition.
One could certainly ask, “If a Christian cannot marry an unbeliever, why would they ever date one? I think one can have a friendship relationship with an unbeliever of the opposite sex, without entering into a dating relationship.
Another verse that comes to mind that lets us know God's command regarding marriage is, "A woman . When a Christian marries an unbeliever, then they will find that they have two different directions in their lives, and as the Bible shows over and over in the Old Testament, that the unbeliever will drag down the believer into sin and will not promote a close walk with the Lord.
In addition, the Husband is to be the spiritual leader of the family, and how can that be if he is an unbeliever. Because he was seeking godly offspring." [Malachi ] God wants Christians marrying Christians because He wants godly children, children brought up to honor and adore Him.
This is again defying God's commands and usually ends up in misery and/or divorce.
