I am currently dating a guy who is not a Christian. I really like him, however all my friends at church say I should not be yoked with a non-believer. Am I sinning by dating him? Do I have to break up with him just because he’s not Christian? He respects my faith and principles but he is of another faith.
Firstly, if you love God, you shouldn’t feel guilty. Cause guilt comes from the devil, not from God. Secondly, good that you at least want to consider God’s consent with your marriage. Thirdly, it is very difficult to understand God’s will and what is right through Holy Bible. Mainly, because we just want to read what is good in the Bible and not what is against out will.
Now coming to your point, I recommend you to read the bible verse by verse, right from the start. Bible never approves or say anything about having non-believer girlfriends and boyfriends. It just talks about marriage, husbands, and wives, both believers and non-believers. Kindly read the entire Corinthians and Peter, especially, 1st Corinthians 7:14 and
1st Peter 3:1-2. And ask God to provide you power of discernment! He is kind God; he will suggest what is best for you. Take care 🙏
I can totally relate to your situation. The matters of the heart are tricky, and God has given us free will. Out of all of this, my prayer for you is that God will bring you a man who will love you the way God loves you (unconditionally). A man who will help you to fulfill your God given purpose, draw you closer to God and not further away. If this is that man, I pray that God will open the eyes of His understanding, may God guide Him and order his steps. If he is not the man God ordained for you, I pray that God will give your clarity and give you the grace to let go. As much as we can love, our salvation and the will of God is the most important thing we should strive for. Continue to pray and ask God for clarity. He always speaks to us, but sometimes we are too busy too listen or ignore the little voice. You are in my prayers sis!
I’m responding about the young lady dating a non-believer.
In short, as an elder and bible teacher in my church, I would advise her against dating or marrying him.
