Christian dating non christian sin
The Bible says Solomon was the wisest man who had lived at that time, yet even he got swept up into idolatry.
The Bible is clear that Christians should not have close friendships with non-Christians.
But what does the Bible teach about dating and marriage? Is it a sin for a Christian to date a non-Christian?
According to the scriptures, relationships are very important, and faith does matter.
After all, faith lays the foundation for your world-views, and world-views will control how you see and respond to the world, and that includes relationships.
Does the Old Testament have anything to say about marriages among God’s people and unbelievers?
Look at Solomon: the Bible says his wives turned him towards other false Gods and idols.So even the wise King Solomon made some mistakes in this regard, and it caused him to turn from God.The Bible (and Jewish tradition) did allow for marriage between a believer and outsider, but only if the outsider converted. Otherwise, they were (and still are) commanded not to marry non-Christians/unbelievers.It is important to keep in mind that when a believer marries a non-believer, it can lead the Christian astray.
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.
