Christian perspective on dating non christians


Modern translations remove the "yoke" and translate the intent of the verse, warning believers, "Do not be bound together with unbelievers." Does this apply to marriage?I have received a few emails from Christians (and even one from a non-Christian) asking if it is okay for a Christian to date or marry an unbeliever.



The short answer is "no." However, it is good to examine the scripture behind the answer to understand it more completely, including why such a marriage is a bad idea.The Proverbs speak of those with whom we should associate (i.e., the wise).They also have much to say about those with whom we should not associate.This appears to be clearly indicated in 1 Corinthians .

The principle stated in 2 Corinthians -18 would seem to apply to marriage as well, and some might see it as applying to dating.

Within the context of a friendship relationship, the Gospel can surely be shared.
