Do you know any solid Christian girls who are becoming seriously interested in a non-Christian guy? There was once a time in my idealistic past where I thought that all “good” Christian girls would automatically eliminate any non-Christian as an option in their dating pursuits.
Yet God has more in store for you than just jumping from one relationship to another.In "The Un Guide to Dating," a he said/she said look at adult dating relationships, authors Camerin Courtney and Todd Hertz discuss why the temptations – and dangers – of dating non-Christians are very real. Todd: My friend Steve isn’t a Christian, so I was surprised when he introduced me to his new girlfriend: a committed member of my church. There, with members of my Bible study, a friend and I quizzed our fellow member Emily about the guy she was spending more and more time with. Emily assured us he was a “really great guy” and that we needn’t worry since they were “just friends.” Well, three months later these “just friends” were dating. As their relationship progressed, I felt twinges of jealousy over Amber. Nor was I singing the eighties pop hit “Jessie’s Girl.” But I did think it was unfair: Here I am, a devoted Christian guy, searching for a committed Christian woman . Jake, the Non-Christian Camerin: Some of my first real conversations about the dangers of dating a non-Christian took place in college over Chocolate Chipper Sundaes at Perkins. But as logical and tempting as it seems, Camerin learned the dangers of dating a non-Christian. Here’s a woman of God in Steve’s arms, and he could care less. How could Amber consider marriage with someone who doesn’t share her beliefs? And because the non-Christian dating scene tends to be much more open and aggressive, those nonbeliever singles are standing by with invitations to dinner ready.However, even among Christians, there are differences as to whether you should or should not date.
