I knew that she had been praying for my mother’s salvation too.My mother eventually converted to Christianity when I was nine and I accepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior when I was 16.Type the word "dating" into your Bible search tool, and what comes up? I remember wishing there was an entire book of the Bible dedicated to the topic when I was single, or at least a chapter.Now, I get emails from singles across the country looking for guidance on who and how to date.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.
[Life 201 is a weekly advice column headed by pastor, counselor and RELEVANT Podcast member Eddie Kaufholz.
We really want this verse (or any verse) to be all about dating and marriage to a non-Christian because it would make this whole conversation a lot easier.
I’ve been single for years, but I recently met a guy I hit it off with right away.
Eddie answers questions and gives advice on issues you want to hear about. Can a Christian and a non-Christian date, fall in love, be genuinely happy, get married and do great things for the world? There are countless follower/non-follower relationships that would be viewed as phenomenal by any standard.
Email your questions to [email protected]] I’m dating a woman and I really like her. She’s an incredible person who teaches me so much and is kind and everything you’d hope for in a mate, but she just doesn’t buy into Jesus. And before you start getting all nervous that I’m about to drop the axe on this sweet thing you’ve got going, know that I’m not about to tell you to break up immediately. Additionally, it is possible for you to follow Jesus and bear fruit throughout your life even if your dating relationship isn’t rooted in Christ. But somewhere, at some point, you’re going to realize that you are building a life on two different foundations.
