Being a believer means that your relationship with God has absolutely, entirely and clearly changed your life.
If you are a believer and profess to have a relationship with Jesus Christ, there is no getting around the fact that this is by far the most influential relationship you will ever have.
When you meet someone you really like, it’s easy to start making compromises on some of the things you were originally looking for.
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.
And sadly, that may be true, but being a Christian is about so much more than just being a moral person.
Is it really that big of a deal to date a non-Christian?
- Tired of Being Single Dear Tired, First of all, I get where you’re coming from.
I believe that Jesus loves everyone, including gay people.
And I am very acceptable to hear what other religions believe in and see.I'm not sure what else to do...because if I stop seeing him on weekends and at work, because of our religion, that would be wrong of me..it would hurt him! But if I stick it out and be with him, would I be sinning? Did perhaps God put me in his life so I can encourage him and and help him?ANd maybe, God put him in my life so that he can help me too? Here's the story: I am 21 and have grown up in a Christian home, where I had a lot of rules and went to church periodically and youth groups.I’m interested in getting to know him more—the only problem is he’s not a Christian.He seems open to the idea of faith, but he’s never been involved in church or anything.I still believe you have to have Jesus in your heart though...
