What the bible says about dating relationships
Does the Old Testament have anything to say about marriages among God’s people and unbelievers?Yes: “An alien living among you who wants to celebrate the LORD’s Passover must have all the males in his household circumcised; then he may take part like one born in the land. Exodus These scriptures tell us that quite clearly even in the Old Testament God is very protective and serious about His followers being involved with people who did not follow God.Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.It would be best to seek out a Christian from the beginning, perhaps in a local church.
So even the wise King Solomon made some mistakes in this regard, and it caused him to turn from God.God’s ideal for marriage is for Christians to marry other Christians, and raise up Godly offspring in the faith. After a few dates, a Christian will inevitably get to know a person’s beliefs, habits, and things like this.If the person is not a Christian, God’s word says you should not continue in the romantic relationship.People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of Godliness but denying its power. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 Given the above scriptures, God clearly wants Christians to limit association/closeness with unbelievers.It is a sin to enter a marriage with an unbeliever.
