Because from the relationships and attitudes I am seeing around me (and sometimes even in myself), we sometimes forget the ‘why’ and get confused trying to do the what.

I think the biggest example of this, and I'm not going to sugarcoat it here, is Christians who extend "dating a Christian" to "dating someone whom I will bring to church", "dating someone who is open to Christianity", or "dating someone who calls himself a Christian but hasn't really been to church in a few years". To do something like that is to miss the point of wanting to date a Christian in the first place.

Like the oxen pulling in different directions, a couple who doesn't share a Godly foundation will clash and experience conflict.

Perhaps you're not convinced yet, and you wonder, Even well-meaning Christians can fall into the trap of marrying non-believers.

A few days have gone by since the excitement and my heart is torn, I feel guilty for even dating a man who doesn’t follow Jesus.

The idea of my Christian friends ridiculing me for potentially marrying a no Christian and even worse the idea of disappointing God himself is bumming me out. It’s wrong to start pounding on someone just because you disapprove of something that they’ve said or done.“Verily I say unto you: do not vex me, lest I begin soundly thrashing you about your head and ears, you vapid dinkwad” is be, anyway)? If you know someone who is in a committed relationship of which you do not approve, an excellent question to ask yourself—especially before venturing to offer any opinion on that relationship—is whether or not anyone but you gives a rolled-up church bulletin what you think of that relationship.

It's taking God's wisdom and stretching it so we find a loophole.

So yes, back to the reasons why Christians shouldn't date non-Christians.

And sure enough, after awhile, I decided I couldn't go on with it anymore, because it was "wrong".

And so I broke up with the perfect guy all because he wasn't a Christian.

It's not an "agree to disagree" kind of difference - like whether Manchester United or Liverpool is better (is there really an argument anyway?
