I remember speaking to one friend who was engaged to an unbeliever about her relationship and her response was that she knew scripture taught it was wrong, but that in her situation God had made an “exception”.
“Are you not afraid that this person, the one you love the most in this world, will one day go to a lost eternity if they are not saved? “I’ll just have to deal with that if it ever comes to it,” she replied and they married.
I am married 25 years, so I am so far removed from the dating scene. When I began dating my husband I was in the EXACT same situation. I am trying to explain to her how that is not the norm, and dating an unbeliever is a recipe for disaster.
My daughter is 19 and in her first year of college. Tonight however, she introduced me to a young man she would like to date.
He was a big help to me in the early days of my new life, everything seemed great, and I was convinced we were to marry – when quite suddenly, he ended our relationship.
I asked them to pray that all my feelings for him would be taken away. I left the conference really quite concerned and confused.I asked her if she would write out her testimony about this experience, and I am so grateful that she agreed.Her name is Angela Mc Innes, now happily married to James, a student for the ministry at the Free Church Seminary in Inverness, Scotland.I had been warned by my mother, after speaking out to some of these friends, of the need to take heed in case I also would fall into the same sin.I had broken off a relationship when I was converted as the man was an unbeliever. We were engaged 1 week later and married 11 months later. he apparently has agreed to go to church with her, which s a great first step. My daughter is 19 and in her first year of college.

The “hottest” response I’ve had to anything I’ve written on this blog came after I posted the text of an email I had written to a young Christian woman (name withheld), begging her to end her relationship with a non-Christian man.I would think what a great Christian he would make! Like the previous years, the teaching was fantastic and we had great Christian fellowship.With all his personal and professional qualities and with his interest in working in the developing world – his skills and his knowledge could be put to so much use in mission too… I basically cajoled this chap into attending on the Lord’s day, and he even swapped shifts to do it.
