Dating a non believer Totallt free uk mature hook up
It seems to me that one should not date anyone whom Proverbs tells us not to associate with, and that one should consider dating only those who possess the qualities of a good friend (or of a potential life’s mate).This would not only exclude unbelievers, but it would also exclude many who profess to be believers as well.Within the context of a friendship relationship, the Gospel can surely be shared.I would raise another set of standards, which are given to us in the Book of Proverbs.Proverbs sets a very high standard for those with whom we should associate as friends, and surely this standard should not be lowered for those whom one would date.

In the same way, Paul says that a binding relationship between a Christian and a non-Christian will be mutually injurous because they are so essentially different.
How easily we can say, “I’m ready to accept that responsibility.” That is, until we experience the painful results of ignoring God’s will!
Often an unequally yoked person returns to follow God closely years later.
