Scripture on dating a non christian
If we’re really serious about “biblical dating,” than our Friday night rendezvous at Starbucks would probably need to include our entire extended family, a dowry, and a couple hundred donkeys, goats, and sheep somewhere in the mix.I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a pretty awkward first date to me.
But though Scriptures are filled with foundational life-changing truths, there are still some topics that are left untouched when it comes to finding a biblical perspective.It’s easy to include God in our spiritual lives, but why not include Him in our relational world as well?We are encouraged again and again through God’s word to bring our needs, concerns, and desires to Him (Matthew 7:7).All over Scripture we are reminded of the meaning of a physical relationship within the context of a committed marriage (Hebrews 13:4, Song of Solomon 8:4).
Dating well means that we make sure to honor and respect this portion of our future marriage by setting physical limits and boundaries when it comes to interacting with the opposite sex.
1 Corinthians reminds us that no matter what it is we’re doing; it can be used as a means to glorifying God.
