Dating people of other religions


So here’s the question, what do you make of a Christian dating a non-Christian? Instead, I’m going to give you three different perspectives: “Yes, date her! And because the Bible doesn’t specifically warn against Perspective 2: No, don’t date her! Now, I’m not saying this because inherent in her unbelief is some immoral compass that will lead you down a path of sin and debauchery. As a Christian, your life is built on a desire to trust and follow Jesus to the ends of the earth.

Within that struggle, inevitably the question comes up: Can a Christian date a non-Christian?

The Bible addresses the hardships that come with marrying a nonbeliever, so that's rather clear.

Type the word "dating" into your Bible search tool, and what comes up? I remember wishing there was an entire book of the Bible dedicated to the topic when I was single, or at least a chapter.

Now, I get emails from singles across the country looking for guidance on who and how to date.

In light of the compromises, weird conversations, and awkward moments we've been through in the last two years - and there have been many - I'm dropping a few truths on you, in the case you find yourself at a bar/on Match.com/being set up/accidentally falling in love with someone who doesn't share your religion. Your parents may be more (or less) okay with it than you think.
