Christian dating a non believer

Don’t sell yourself short out of fear and desperation, but instead, move toward God’s promises in faith.Especially if you grew up in the church, you’ve probably heard people say that Christians should not marry non-Christians.And since dating is the first step toward marriage, it follows that Christians should not date non-Christians either. I have met so many believers who—when times got tough or lonely—ditched that rule and started a relationship with an unbeliever. “My boyfriend acts more like a Christian than my Christian friends do,” they say.According to Scripture, when God joins something together, something powerful happens that can’t be separated by mere man.The Spirit of God is the only guarantee that we will have what it takes to love, to confess, to sacrifice, to give and to forgive one another.Don’t let fear drive you into the arms of someone with whom you can’t share every single part of your life.
