Believer and non believer dating
To explore some of those things better, consider this article.Above all, such counsel will involve a careful examination of motivation and a re-examination of the trustworthiness and goodness of God who doesn’t call us to compromise in our devotion to him, but to trust him.Such an article would include a clearer picture of what marriage looks like: making decisions about career, where to live, how to spend money, how to raise children, etc.All of this is compounded when you and your spouse are living for different things.And just to be clear: getting romantically involved is likely to happen if you spend a great deal of time with someone of the opposite sex one-on-one.I recently had a painful conversation with a dear friend who said he’d never planned to get romantically involved with someone.For example, how do you decide what you should do at any point in your life? He created man and woman in relationship to do that.Single men and women can do that also, particularly in relationship to the church under the love of Christ, the fulfillment of marriage.
It’s my contention that if it’s forbidden for a Christian to marry a non-Christian, then it is at the very least a deliberate walking into temptation to date a non-Christian.

Once confessed, the problem isn’t recognition that they’ve sinned; the problem is the slow, painful process of repentance.
If you can’t marry them without a supernatural conversion wrought by the Holy Spirit in their heart, over which you have no control, then it would be both extremely foolish and very unkind to consider such a marriage in the first place.
Now, I hope to demonstrate how clearly the Bible says it is sinful for a believer to marry a non-believer.
