What the bible say about dating non believers
But he’d spent hours and hours with her one-on-one after midnight over several weeks.If you don’t want to get romantically involved with someone, don’t spend hours one-on-one.If we don’t acknowledge that we’re ruling God’s rule, then we’re ruling under the rule of an idol, or a combination of a whole series of idols. He needs a suitable helper in order to do that, so Eve is provided so that together they will fulfill God’s calling to bring glory to his name under his rule. “It is not good for man to be alone” isn’t true primarily because man is lonely: it’s true because he’s incompetent, even before the Fall.Practically speaking, this impinges on every single decision you have to make as a married couple. God did not create man alone to be competent to fulfill his calling to image God.
It’s my contention that if it’s forbidden for a Christian to marry a non-Christian, then it is at the very least a deliberate walking into temptation to date a non-Christian.If the Lord wants you to be married, he’ll make it clear that it would be possible for you to pursue such a relationship by them coming to faith!Furthermore, a proof-text for not dating a non-Christian is a strange thing to expect for a few reasons.In the curse, God pronounces how marriage post-Fall is a battle of one sinful will against another: marriages are hard.But in a Christian marriage, spouses have the opportunity to call one another to submit one’s sinful wills to God’s perfect will.
