Christian men dating non christian
Plus, in daily life, most Christians will come across far more non-Christian dating potentials than devoted Christian ones.
And, in a way, it may even be logical with all the confusion and droughts we’ve talked about.
In "The Un Guide to Dating," a he said/she said look at adult dating relationships, authors Camerin Courtney and Todd Hertz discuss why the temptations – and dangers – of dating non-Christians are very real. Todd: My friend Steve isn’t a Christian, so I was surprised when he introduced me to his new girlfriend: a committed member of my church. There, with members of my Bible study, a friend and I quizzed our fellow member Emily about the guy she was spending more and more time with. Emily assured us he was a “really great guy” and that we needn’t worry since they were “just friends.” Well, three months later these “just friends” were dating.
So when Jake asked if he could call me sometime, I gave him my telephone number and did a mental dance of joy.
“You’ll have a bed to yourself all weekend, and I appreciate your conservative views; it’s part of what makes you YOU,” he wrote, adding a smiley face next to it.
After reading Jake’s email, I felt giddy with the excitement of having someone interested in me – and guilty that Jake still didn’t know the biggest part of what makes me me: Jesus Christ.
As I spent time one-on-one with Jake, I discovered he was easy to talk to, intelligent, devoted to his family – and, as I suspected, a non-Christian. But I was drawn to this cute charmer who was showing interest in goody-two-shoes me!
In the weeks that followed, Jake and I exchanged flirty emails and occasionally hung out with his friends.
