stereotyping!

by Barb
(Longmeadow, MA)

No dating nonbelievers? Simply because one does not adhere to the same strict belief system as yourself does not mean that one may not live a moral and ethical life! My husband was an atheist and he showed total respect for the lines I drew regardless. Over the years I have known him, I have shown him the light of Christianity and slowly but surely converted him into one of the most true Christian men I know. So please, anybody reading this, use wisdom in deciding whether or not to date nonchristians. It's one woman's opinions, not strict fact.

what the Bible says
by: cassandra

the Bible says NOT to be unequally yoked, which means to not date unbelievers. it worked out good for you, but there's less than a 1% chance of it working out like that for anyone else. before you go around spreading that--check your facts--WAY MORE TIMES THAN NOT, as in 99.9% of the time, it works the other way

marriage

Plus it would only create more problems in a marriage. Marriage is hard enough as it is but I couldn't imagine the additional struggles that would come along with marrying a nonbeliever.

I'm glad it worked out for you

Barb,
Thanks for sharing and I'm glad it worked out for you that you have been a Godly influence on him. Unfortunately, I've talked with many women who have not had that experience.

There may be a few non-Christian guys who will truly still respect your sexual boundaries before marriage, but I really think it is the minority.

In marriage the two become one...it's a picture of unity. However, with something as important as spiritual beliefs, many women have shared with me that it's been very difficult for them to be "one" or unified with their husbands when their spiritual beliefs are so different.

Mark 10:7-9, "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, 8 and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate."

2 Corinthians 6:14, "Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?"

Thanks for sharing your story and your opinion!

Marrying someone that is NOT a christian causes more problems. They don't share the same believe as you do. That's the main problem. God wants 3 people that love him to come together not one of each. It may be hard to stay commited if the other isn't in the same 'boat' as you. Just saying. I dont' mean to be mean or anything. That's my oppinion.
