Bible verses about dating non believers
If you were thinking about dating a non-Christian don’t. You probably think nothing will happen, it doesn’t matter, you know better than God, but you’re wrong. Dating an unbeliever can hinder your relationship with Christ. Being around an ungodly person can make you start to sin more, act in a different way, talk in a different way, be led astray, and always remember if your life is all about Christ you won’t be able to express and share things about Christ which all believers love to do because there is no connection.
Learn from the mistakes of others like Samson and Solomon. There is no point of dating someone if you don’t plan on marrying them and I’ve heard many bad stories about believers who married an unbeliever. Don’t think you will change that person later on in life because that rarely happens and only makes things worse.
Don’t think that God doesn’t care because he does. He loves you and does not want you to be one flesh with a person that won’t accept his son. Wait for a Christian. An ungodly husband or an ungodly wife cannot do God’s will in marriage. I want to also remind you this, don’t date someone just because they go to church because many people who say they’re Christians are not truly Christians. Don’t disobey God and wait patiently for the Lord.
- “You can’t save them by dating them. Let God change their heart before you try to start a relationship with them.”
- “Choose to be with someone who brings out your truest identity with Christ.”
- “Marry someone who makes you fall in love with God every single day.”
- “A woman relentlessly chasing after Christ is incredibly attractive to the man relentlessly pursuing Christ.”
