I don’t think it’s wrong for Christians to marry non-Christians. Daniel and I have been married for 13 years and have two girls.
Since I was a teenager I’d felt called towards ordination.
But there are many more stories to the contrary of great heartache and eventual splitting of partners either before or after marriage - sometimes much later in life.
With the added pressure of other people drifting in and out of casual relationships, everyone else is having all the fun and you end up wondering why you don't try it yourself!
It's a question that is regularly asked, but not always accurately answered.
It confuses, perplexes, and even angers both Christians and non-Christians alike.
To help you in this mission I have provided links below to several thought-provoking articles and videos.
Here is the article where Steve Shirley gives his biblically-based answer to the question: • CAN I DATE A NON-CHRISTIAN?
And then here’s something you may want to view on this issue, talked about by Pastor Tim Keller.
He would now quite happily call himself a Christian and a believer.
Of course, there are no guarantees on that front and I don’t think you should ever go into marriage hoping to change the other person.
This page talks about the question of should Christians go out with or date a non-Christian - the age old problem of having a Christian girlfriend or boyfriend that doesn't believe. Shouldn't we be equally yoked with someone who believes that Christ?
