What Does the Bible Say About Dating/Marrying a Non-Christian?
1 Corinthians states, “A woman is bound to her husband as long as he lives.
While much of the advice so far should apply to both dating and marriage, this is where the approaches should be different.
If you have married a non-Christian or perhaps you have become a Christian while your spouse has not, you should not divorce him or her for this reason.
” While the Bible does not say anything about dating, the Bible does give Christians direct commands about not marrying non-Christians.
Since the most biblical purpose for dating is to determine if two people want to marry, I believe all that the Bible says about not marrying an unbeliever applies to the topic of whether or not it is okay for Christians to date non-Christians.
Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” (Romans 8:6-8) If we hope to please God, we must not be yoked with those still in the flesh (unbelievers) because it is impossible for someone without the Holy Spirit to please God. How to Avoid Dating/Marry a Non-Christian While the Bible is clear that it is not ever okay to date or marry a non-Christian, that does not mean many Christians will not still do this.
It’s easy to play mind games and make exceptions of why dating a non-believer is usually wrong for most people but not wrong for you.
However, the Bible does have many guiding principles that give us all the answers we need when asking, “Is it okay to date a non-believer?
So to avoid marrying a non-Christian, it starts with refusing to date a non-Christian.
