The nonreligious guide to dating
Looking back, I thank the Lord for protecting my purity and the purity of the girls in those relationships. My senior year of high school, a junior girl caught my eye.
We started talking on the band trip that year on New Year’s Eve.
I understand the temptation to believe that dating non-Christians is okay.
In fact, I get why so many young women have been deceived into thinking that it is a potentially wonderful missions opportunity.
Ask God now to prepare you and your future husband for the time when you will be wed.Specifically, it seems that some of you are wondering if it’s okay to date non-Christians. God’s Word urges us not to link our lives with non-believers, and the consequences of choosing to do otherwise can be disastrous.But I know that you might not be willing to simply take my word on this one.If they are not down with respecting you for taking this season in your life to grow more as a woman, then you need to pray for them that they may understand your heart and that you are letting yourself be prepared for your future husband.When you are not equally yoked to a believer of a very close maturity level in your relationship with Christ and when you don’t have a very similar philosophy on how to live your life, then you should not enter into a relationship with that person.
