1 Kings 11:4 The scripture above should be a “wake-up call” to Christians who think they can marry someone and not be influenced by their beliefs or faith.
So what does the Bible say about dating or marrying an unbeliever?
First, for a historical perspective, let’s look at the Old Testament for a moment.
You are going to spend your whole life with this person, and so you’d better get God’s advice on the matter.
Yes: “An alien living among you who wants to celebrate the LORD’s Passover must have all the males in his household circumcised; then he may take part like one born in the land. Exodus These scriptures tell us that quite clearly even in the Old Testament God is very protective and serious about His followers being involved with people who did not follow God.
A simple casual date, perhaps with friends, would be okay.
However, if the person is not a Christian, and you witness to them and they reject the gospel, you should not move forward with a romantic relationship.
God’s ideal for marriage is for Christians to marry other Christians, and raise up Godly offspring in the faith. After a few dates, a Christian will inevitably get to know a person’s beliefs, habits, and things like this.
If the person is not a Christian, God’s word says you should not continue in the romantic relationship.
