Bible verse not dating non christian
Such scenarios often occurred in the early church as unbelievers were converting in large numbers.
Paul gives specific instruction to believers who are married to unbelievers—stay together!
I have received a few emails from Christians (and even one from a non-Christian) asking if it is okay for a Christian to date or marry an unbeliever.
Usually, by the time the question is asked, the relationship has gone far enough that a negative answer is going to be difficult to accept, even if it is the right answer.
The New Testament goes as far as to warn us not even to eat with idolaters (1 Corinthians ). Bad company corrupts good morals" ( The Bible is actually much more direct about marrying unbelievers than has been indicated to this point.( In these verses, the Apostle Paul compares believers with unbelievers in terms of light with darkness (verse 14), Christ with Belial (a references to Satan, verse 15), a believer with an unbeliever (verse 15), and a temple of God with a temple of idols (verse 16). Even though you may think you have a lot in common, the most important things you don't hold in common.The Bible, especially the New Testament, warns Christians to avoid idolatry.Dating a non-Christian is also problematic, for similar reasons.Those who marry an unbeliever prior to converting to Christianity are encouraged to stay with the unbeliever unless they leave.
