Bible verse for dating
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.
First, for a historical perspective, let’s look at the Old Testament for a moment.
The Bible is clear that Christians should not have close friendships with non-Christians.
But what does the Bible teach about dating and marriage? Is it a sin for a Christian to date a non-Christian?
The Bible (and Jewish tradition) did allow for marriage between a believer and outsider, but only if the outsider converted. Otherwise, they were (and still are) commanded not to marry non-Christians/unbelievers.
It is important to keep in mind that when a believer marries a non-believer, it can lead the Christian astray.
