Chrsitian missonary dating
But when she began dating Dominick, a non-Christian, she told friends it was OK because he believed in a higher power and was very interested in the supernatural.
She argued that his interest and respect for people with devout beliefs was good enough to combat 2 Corinthians 6’s warnings that they’d have no common ground.
She would say, “Once he gets saved, he’ll be the perfect husband.” She acted as if it were a given.For my friend Amber, for instance, it was watching her best friend and younger sister get married (both to wonderful Christian husbands) and start families.She doubted God’s plan for her and began dating more aggressively to hurry up her own trip to the altar.So when I learned they were sleeping together, I was disappointed but not shocked.
Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 7:1 that we need to “purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit.” Letting someone who doesn’t hold our convictions and beliefs into the secret places of our heart surely can wear us down and contaminate the good there.
“Maybe 99 percent of the time the motivations behind missionary dating are impure: a need for attention or approval, [sexual desire], desire for companionship, longing to be understood, or a savior-complex. It’s better for me to not even approach a non-Christian than to tease hurtful motivations. In fact, I have even given some loved ones specific permission to challenge me and question me about dating decisions.
