Christian dating a non christian what to do
The Christian life then becomes not a question of being good enough for God but being the person God wants you to be - confidently living your life in obedience to Jesus.So your question should be “what is the obedient thing for me to do in this situation?The trajectory of lives and eternities are in the balance. Laying out guidelines for dating as followers of Jesus will alter lives by keeping people out of toxic and unhealthy relationships (and ultimately marriages). “The one” says you need to find the perfect person. The beauty of marriage is God sustains you despite your flaws. The shells of a shotgun are stuffed with tiny round balls. You are asked to go from a mentality that says “End a relationship as soon as difficulty arises,” to one that says, “Don’t end the relationship regardless of the difficulty that arises.” That’s a tough switch to flip.
It means dating someone who meets the values and goals you have for a future spouse (more on that later).
” Now at this point I need to be quite frank with you - dating a non-christian and living with a woman you are not married to (And by this I mean having sex with) is NOT living obediently under Christ.
The Bible teaches that Christian are free to marry whoever they wish, but they ought to be believers (1 Corinthians ).
It will seem to her that she is more important to you than Jesus is, and that’s unhelpful for her.
Normally I would say you should not marry a non-Christian (1 Corinthians ), but now that you are living together, it is more complicated.
