While there may be a lot of reasons or contributing factors as to why a Christian would make the choice to be in a romantic relationship with a non-Christian, I don’t believe that it is simply a relational issue.
It’s a complex spiritual issue that requires some self-reflection and honesty.
2 Corinthians - Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? 1 Corinthians - Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.2 Corinthians -18 - Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? Proverbs - Favour [is] deceitful, and beauty [is] vain: [but] a woman [that] feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.2 Timothy 3:1-5 - This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
The moment I made the decision to waver on something I always said I would never compromise on, the offers flooded in. He had a great career and he truly could give me everything I ever wanted in this life. I knew he wasn’t a believer, but I wanted to spend time with him and get to know more about him. But the reality is, more often than not, they are great.
Suddenly I got asked out in a grocery store line-up, and then at a dollar store. So, I made the decision to spend time with this guy and got to know him. We liked a lot of the same things, had good conversations, and he made me laugh.
It felt like everyone I knew was married, including the kids I used to babysit.
There seemed to be 10 girls for every single available guy in church.
He is author of more than 50 books, including Reading the Bible Supernaturally.
