Christian daughter dating non christian
When you ask why they are doing this, you hear rationalizations, such as: “I love him, and love is what matters the most.” “He promises to go to church with me and the children.” “If I break up with him, he won’t have anyone to lead him to Christ. You should no more pray about marrying a non-Christian than you should pray about whether it is God’s will for you to commit adultery or murder your neighbor.Besides, I’m sure that he’s going to become a Christian.” “I’ve prayed about it and feel a peace that this is God’s will.” I want you to hear me loud and clear: It is never God’s will for a Christian to marry a non-Christian! God has made it abundantly plain that it is sin for His children to marry an unbeliever. Someone may be thinking, “But I know of cases where a believer married an unbeliever and everything has turned out fine.The unbeliever came to faith in Christ and today they have a fine Christian family.” Yes, God is often gracious in using even our sins for good when we repent.I’ve heard of people who tried to commit suicide, but God spared their lives and saved them.From the contemporaneous books of Ezra (9, 10) and Nehemiah (-29) we learn that one of the ways the priests had set a bad example and thus had led the people astray was in this sin of marrying foreign women who did not follow the Lord.In fact, they were even divorcing their Jewish wives to marry these foreign women (Mal. Through the prophet, the Lord warns His people against the sins of marrying unbelievers and divorce.But that should not encourage us to sin that grace may abound!
He uses it to wreak havoc among God’s people and to thwart God’s work. I have seen spiritually vibrant young people throw their lives away by marrying unbelievers.
The scheme is so simple that you would think that even the most naïve of God’s people would have caught on by now, but they haven’t. Usually, it seems to be Christian young women who marry unbelieving men, although occasionally the pattern is reversed.
