Dating a non christian
Understand that your close relationship with Christ may complicate your relationship with the person you’re dating if they don't know Him.Many Christians will get involved with non-Christians in hopes that one day their partner will find Christ and know Him.If you end up dating a non-Christian there’s probably already a part of you that’s compromising your values and standards for that person, which again raises the question of what comes first: your relationship with God, or the relationship with your partner?Before moving forward with that person, create a list that includes the criteria for who you date and find out what values are important to you.While there is no issue with you trying to bring the one you’re dating closer to Christ, you need to know whether they have or are open to having a relationship with Christ and if they are, that they want it for the right reasons.Are they not in a relationship with Christ because they don’t want a relationship with Him or because they’ve never been in a Christ context.If the relationship doesn’t support a closer relationship with God and causes you to drift from Him, you shouldn’t be in it.
If this relationship will have a negative impact on your relationship with God, it’s not the right one for you.
You probably wouldn’t be attracted to them if they were but you have to ask yourself, what kind of values and morals does this person have, especially given they don’t have a personal relationship with Christ?
Because they don’t have that Christian foundation, their values may not be in line with yours, which can take you down a path of sin, separation and non-forgiveness, only further separating you from Christ.
Ephesians -28 “Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord.
For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
