I am mostly concerned about her losing her parents. Will she still have her parents if she leaves on her own or will that be worse then being disfellowshipped excommunicated? I am looking for a loophole. I know that is not the right thing to do, but she loves me and I love her. As for the articles I have read on your site, I have read them thoroughly and I like what you said in one of your articles: Is it possible to go to an elder to ask for his blessing on our relationship? Dear friend, You and your girlfriend are in a tough situation.
My sweet Christian child who had withstood peer pressure in high school had not had many dates because she would not put out. It was a great answer to prayer because the market had dropped badly and the amount of money in her college fund was significantly less. I knew she would party at college, but she had worked during high school and had paid for her own dance lessons for big band music. She had shown the ability to watch out for herself.
5. The addict. Churchgoing men who have addictions to alcohol or drugs have learned to hide their problems—but you don’t want to wait until your honeymoon to find out that he’s a boozer.
I have often thought how much simpler it would be if I could remove myself from the conversation and invite those already married to unbelievers do the talking to singles who are desperately trying to find a loophole that would allow them to marry someone who does not share their faith. You can find those passages in abundance, but when someone has already allowed his or her heart to become engaged with a person outside the faith, I find that the Bible has already been devalued as the non-negotiable rule of faith and practice.
Marriage is hard enough when you have two believers who are completely in harmony spiritually. Just spare yourself the heartache and get over it. Sadder and Wiser If only I could pair those sadder and wiser women—and men—who have found themselves in unequal marriages either by their own foolishness or due to one person finding Christ after the marriage had already occurred with the blithely optimistic singles who are convinced that their passion and commitment will overcome all obstacles.
Even the obstacle of bald disobedience need not apply to them. Only ten minutes of conversation—one minute if the person is really succinct—would be necessary. In the words of one woman who was married to a perfectly nice man who did not share her faith: The collective weight of their stories would be powerful in a way that no second-hand lecture ever would be. Three True Outcomes For the moment, though, here goes: There are only three ways an unequal marriage can turn out, and by unequal I am willing to stretch a point and include genuine, warm Christians who want to marry an in-name-only Christian, or someone very, very far behind them in Christian experience and growth:
I don’t want to keep my new relationship a secret, but is interfaith dating ok? I am a Jewish man who was raised Orthodox, but am not currently practicing. I am involved in a relationship with a Catholic girl who I love spending time with. She had introduced me to her family and they like me and let me come to their house.

Julia I am a 14 year old girl in the 10th Grade. He believes strongly in Evolution and we often try to avoid taking about religion and politics. Let me make one thing clear.

Sermon on the Mount, it tells us that we are like salt and light. Our saltiness is our sharing our God with others, along with that being our brightness. Share your faith with him, plant the seed.

What can I do? Based on the experiences of other parents, and on my experience with the church, the church will gradually become a surrogate family for her, and thus weaken your relationship with her. If she really gets involved in it and they will pressure her to become more “active” she will spend more and more time on church activities, associate more and more with her fellow Mormons, and have less and less to talk with you about, since you cannot possibly “understand” her new spirituality.
Ultimately she will be taught that her position in heaven will depend on whether she marries a good Mormon man in the temple, and she will be pressured to do so. Since only good Mormons are allowed into the temple, you and all her non-Mormon family members and friends will not be invited to the wedding. Often the interest in Mormonism is a romantic friendship with a Mormon. It is a collection of comments from people who joined the Mormon church because they were in love with a Mormon, and who later regretted it very much.
The old saying, You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink! You can lead a Saint to facts, but you can’t make her think! In other words, unless you can get her really to examine facts about Mormonism with a truly open mind, there is little hope of changing her thinking. Of course, the church leaders specifically warn Mormons against doing that: Often a daughter has already cut off communication.
You will go ahead and marry a non-believer hoping he would change. God can do that! The story is that I was a non christian when I became engaged- after being engaged I became a christian which my fiancee didnt. I know now as a christian I’m not suppose to marry a non christian but why should I just break it off with him just because I turned a christian. I’m praying and hoping that he’ll change his life around just like I did mine. Do you plan to take the good advice given here – advice you asked for?
Discrimination is not a Christian value. Unfortunately, discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people remains common, even here in the United States. In 29 states, it is legal to fire or discriminate against hardworking employees based on their sexual orientation.
Next My son is dating a Christian girl? My son is an atheist because we raised him that way my husband and I are both atheists and we told him that he could never date a girl with religion because it is required that atheists only date atheists My son is 18 but he still lives in my house and if he lives in my house he has to obey my rules. So he told me that he’s started dating a Christian girl that he really likes and he wanted to bring her to our house for dinner. I got angry and I told him that he has to break up with her or else I’ll kick him out of the house.
He cried and told me that she’s really nice and accepting and she’s “not like other girls” and he’s happy with her. I told my son that I wont want any Christian coming into my house because they will pollute the air with their ridiculous beliefs. I’m worried that she’ll try to convert my son to Christianity but he told me that she respects his beliefs but I don’t believe him because ALL Christians are bigots and they will always shove their beliefs down other people’s throats no matter what.
They have no respect for other people and they generalize all atheists for being evil. The reason why I posted this question here is because I want to show the answers to my son and prove to him that I’m right and he’s wrong. Don’t you think that what I am doing is right?
Erin Davis 43 Comments Print Hey, girls! In fact, we are revisiting some of our most read posts this month as part of our attempt to give you some great advice on the subject of romance. Lately there has been some discussion on this blog about whether or not it is okay for Christians to date non-Christians. We encountered this same conversation over and over as we did research for Lies Young Women Believe.
Answer: For a Christian, dating a non-Christian is unwise, and marrying one is not an option. Second Corinthians (KJV) tells us not to be “unequally yoked” with an unbeliever. Second Corinthians (KJV) tells us not to be “unequally yoked” with an unbeliever.
I was so connected to my Jewish identity that my betrayal of it was not even statistically probable. Some of my friends began dating non-Jews. I stopped socializing with them in silent protest, after a more outspoken effort had failed. I self-righteously concluded that we had nothing in common, since they were prepared to give their Jewish identity the backseat. In the Talmud, Rabbi Hillel warns us that we should be careful not to judge another person until we have stood in their place.
And I was going places. It was an inspiring night full of memories and promise for the future. As we gathered round looking at photos, I pretended not to notice the attractive guy sitting next to me. He just wants to meet you. Attractive had inquired after me.
