Scripture on dating unbelievers intimidating threats
Ever since my first ministry post as a middle school ministry director in 2003, I’ve dealt regularly with Christian folks who want to know if it is acceptable for them to date an unbeliever.
Often (but not always), those who are pondering this question readily acknowledge that the Bible says a Christian cannot marry a non-Christian.
For you, being smart means that after you leave the relationship you shouldn’t go back!
When God gave the Israelites an exodus opportunity, they took it. If your relationship is even slightly abusive, consider this your sign to exit the relationship NOW!
But we need to be precise at this point so that we do not attempt to protect a clear commandment (you cannot an unbeliever). 90), there was no such thing as modern “dating.” There were marriages, betrothals (similar to but not the same as modern-day engagements), and singleness.
My friend even started sleeping with her guy to make him happy. And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols?
For you are God’s temple, the home of the living God, and God has said of you, “I will live in them and walk among them, and I will be their God and they shall be my people.” Another reason I wanted to write this post was because I just read an interesting post on a page I often visit about an 18 year old girl who had married an unbeliever.
It’s such a common thing that either you’ve heard of it or are caught up in it yourself! It is the seemingly endless habit many couples have in which they will fight and makeup on a regular basis. It makes for great movies, but what works for a 90-minute Hollywood hit is a no-go in the real world.
What I mean is this: if fighting in your dating world means hitting, pushing, shoving, name calling, yelling, manipulating, or anything rude that occurs on a consistent basis then, of course, turn walk away. In bad relationships, bad things happen and will continue to happen if you let them. Wisdom always does now what brings satisfaction later.
