Dating a non christian bible verses

The Bible is clear that a Christian is never to marry a non-Christian.

The Old Testament specifically forbids God's people from marrying "foreign wives": "Now therefore, make confession to the LORD God of your fathers and do His will; and separate yourselves from the peoples of the land and from the foreign wives." ( So, the New Testament makes it clear that believers are only to marry fellow believers.

Although dating of Christians and non-Christians is not specifically handled in the Bible, it is clear that such an action is asking for trouble.

An unbeliever who practices Christian-like morality is going to be attractive to a Christian.

However, the chances that such a person will become a Christian, allowing the Christian to marry him/her is statistically remote.

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.

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.

Bible Verses About Dating - Christian relationships are talked about throughout the Bible in the Old and New Testaments.

The Bible covers topics relating to dating, relationships, friendships, forgiveness, and others that help provide biblical guidance for Christians to follow.

Such scenarios often occurred in the early church as unbelievers were converting in large numbers.

  2. If you choose to do this it is important to realize that it will increase the amount of interest that you pay because you will be paying on the loan longer.
