What the bible says about dating non christians
If your identity is in Christ alone, then your life will automatically come into conflict with your non-believing girlfriend or boyfriend. Proverbs says, Those we build our lives around, the people who are closest to us, are the ones who can either help bring us close to God, or pull us farther away.It's what Paul was referring to in 2 Corinthians when he said, I know that this seems so easy to say.Especially when you watch every one of your friends get married or start a family.Or when you’re invited out with the couples so you can watch the kids.Or mentioning their far-off distant relative who they thought might still be single (which they never were), and who they could maybe one day set me up with (which they never did).
If your heart is truly, genuinely, passionately in pursuit of Christ on a daily basis, then a non-believer — no matter how kind and caring and wonderful they are — can never truly know you.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.While the first two dates were just awkward encounters that made me feel uncomfortable and probably caused my face to glow red for hours afterwards, the third guy peaked my interest. All my ideas and hopes of leading him to Jesus weren’t realistic.He didn’t want to talk about church or Jesus, and conversations always turned uncomfortable every time I mentioned either.
