Bible verses on dating and mating

If you were thinking about dating a non-Christian don’t.

You probably think nothing will happen, it doesn’t matter, you know better than God, but you’re wrong.

Dating an unbeliever can hinder your relationship with Christ.

Being around an ungodly person can make you start to sin more, act in a different way, talk in a different way, be led astray, and always remember if your life is all about Christ you won’t be able to express and share things about Christ which all believers love to do because there is no connection. There is no point of dating someone if you don’t plan on marrying them and I’ve heard many bad stories about believers who married an unbeliever. So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful to the wife of your youth.5.

Don’t disobey God and wait patiently for the Lord.3.

2 Corinthians - Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? Psalms 37:3-4 - Trust in the LORD, and do good; [so] shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

I want to also remind you this, don’t date someone just because they go to church because many people who say they’re Christians are not truly Christians.

If the person claims to be Christian, but lives like an unbeliever God didn’t send you that person. No type of ungodly person can do God’s will in marriage. Many people think they are in love for reasons such as the person’s looks, communication skills, etc. Do you believe God has called you to commit your life to this person in marriage? For example, sex, physical attraction, looking at other couples, constantly listening to love music, fear, constantly watching love movies, etc.8. That’s his precious little daughter that you want to take out. Listen to her, respect her, and always keep her into consideration. If you’re going to be a leader you have to know the Scriptures to teach God’s daughter. I am not saying that you should not be attracted to the person who you are dating because you should be. Is God working in his life and making him more like Christ?

“But he’s nice.” If you haven’t consulted God about it that means that you haven’t asked Him if the person you have met is the person He wants you to marry. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient, love is kind. “Oh Lord may this relationship honor your name” and this should be our mindset going into marriage. She is always going to be his precious little baby in his eyes. Now Imagine how much greater is the love of a holy God. She’s not a husbands must live with your wives in an understanding manner, as with a most delicate partner. I don’t believe kissing is sinful, but I believe it can be. Anything that leads you to indulge in sexual thoughts is sinful. It’s not good to seek a relationship with someone you are not physically attracted to.

2 Timothy - Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.1 Corinthians - Flee fornication.

Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.1 Corinthians - Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.1 Corinthians - Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.1 Timothy 2:9 - In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; Jeremiah 17:9 - The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it?
