Christains dating non christian
May I suggest a couple of basic questions to consider? Someone like this would be a pretty good catch right? Our Heavenly Father feels very strongly about His children marrying anyone who doesnt belong to Him. And we were most certainly NOT in harmony with each other; nor were we often pulling together! But you see, He gave me free will the same as He has given you. Like the children of Israel of old, I ended up spending almost forty years in the wilderness. I now realize we actually discussed very little before we married.There are many possible answers of course; being in love, wanting a home of your own, wanting a family of your own, your body clock is ticking, wanting to get away from abusive parents, loneliness. Thats why the Bible says in 2 Corinthians : Do you already have someone in mind and you have been feeling uneasy because you thought that there was a verse like this somewhere but you hadnt yet got around to looking it up? And, as a mother who has wept when her own children have experienced traumas in their own marriages, I am just beginning to understand how the heart of Father God must weep when His children make wrong choices. To stay single until I was sure what the Lord wanted me to do. One road is rough, corrugated, gravelly, uphill, windy The other road is tarred, straight, (at least as far as the eye can see), wide, smooth. We didnt have Him in our marriage; I didnt want Him in our marriage. Its just that my need to feel loved by someone I could see and touch was so desperate, that I didnt take seriously Christs words about being unequally yoked together. Now that Ive repented, and got this sorted out with God, I thought, surely things will improve? We were more interested in the physical side of things, although I made sure that we didnt go all the way.It is easier in many ways to be not of the world than it is to be in it and not of it.Last year, our pastor in suburban Cincinnati challenged us at the holidays to pray for our neighbors by name, take them some baked goods, and then seek opportunities to invite them into our home.
Having decided we are going to spend Eternity with Jesus, we need to be VERY selective about with whom we choose to share our earthly life. In Genesis God Himself said: Your own wish list may include factors such as tall, good-looking, own home and car, secure job, similar cultural background, non-drinker/smoker/gambler, kind to animals, sense of humor etc. Because they were christened or confirmed at a certain age, or walked down the aisle and signed a decision card, that doesnt necessarily mean that they have understood their need to repent of their own sin and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. So why does God feel so strongly about this matter? Many Christian women who think about getting married to someone who doesnt have a place for Jesus in their lives, cant see the harm, if the man they love is morally upright. But I ended up paying a heavy price in personal loneliness, marital discord, and, worst of all, disruption to my own fellowship with God. For nearly forty years I was married to a person who made no place for God in his life, yet was a good-living person, and an upright citizen. As they say, love is blind, but marriage is an eye-opener.When that magic happens, it can be easy to gloss over differences that don't seem to have any bearing on the personal relationship.This is a problem being met by more and more Christians who want to marry. In a society where people can have hundreds of online friends from all over the world, it can still be difficult to find close, personal relationships in real life.Sometimes it feels like a miracle when we meet someone with whom we really connect—someone who likes us, likes spending time with us, and makes us feel appreciated.
