” Really, this might be the only effective pastoral approach: to find a man or woman who is willing to talk honestly about the difficulties of the situation and invite them into a counseling ministry with the about-to-make-a-big-mistake unequal couple.
Back in high school, I remember walking out of Walmart and finding a secret “love note” stuck to my windshield.
The passage goes on to say that there is no harmony between Christ and Belial (Satan).
There can be no spiritual harmony in a marriage between a Christian and a non-Christian.
If you were dating an unbeliever, what would honestly be your priority, romance or winning a soul for Christ? Is it wrong for a couple to live together before marriage?
If you were married to an unbeliever, how would the two of you cultivate a spiritual intimacy in your marriage? Should Christians of different denominations date or marry?
But the bigger reason I said no was because of something much more important.
Question: "Is it right for a Christian to date or marry a non-Christian?
" Answer: For a Christian, dating a non-Christian is unwise, and marrying one is not an option.
To my knowledge, this Walmart cart guy wasn’t a Christian.
And for that reason, I would never consider dating him.
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.
