Christian dating non christian bible
For example, he highlights the fact that God loves non-Christians and values marriage, even if a Christian marries a non-Christian.However, David concludes that it’s actually okay to marry a non-Christian.Moreover, Paul’s vision for husbands laying down their lives and wives submitting, can only be achieved if the spouses believe in Christ and his achievements.David is right to say that Paul is pastoral when believers and non-believers are married.In fact, this is about more than the pews they sit, or don’t sit on, on a Sunday. It becomes about more then ticking the ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ box, and about preparing, with God in mind, how we can build something worth having with that potentially special someone.It becomes about thinking what our priorities actually are. Why do you think a lot of Christians say dating a non-Christian is ‘wrong’?
He has a keen interest in the area of dating and singleness and helping people apply God’s Word to these issues.
However, the truth is, going out with a Christian doesn’t mean your relationship will automatically honour God.
I know Christians who both love God, who have dated but it has ended badly or been a complete train wreck.
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.
Old Testament Understanding David also argues that in the Old Testament there was no rule for marrying a non-believer.
