What the bible says about dating unbelievers
It’s such a common thing that either you’ve heard of it or are caught up in it yourself! It is the seemingly endless habit many couples have in which they will fight and makeup on a regular basis. It makes for great movies, but what works for a 90-minute Hollywood hit is a no-go in the real world.
Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. Ever turned on the television or radio to catch a sermon, song, or message seemingly written specifically for you? If you’re a believer dating an unsaved person, your date has not only rejected the Lord but also the Lord living in you.

A mature believer will want his or her spouse not just to profess some kind of creed or be willing to go to church.What they will want is not just a marriage that is minimally Christian, but a Christian marriage.
And a Christian marriage is described in Ephesians five like this.
If travels down doubt path have you pondering whether or not to proceed in your current dating relationship, allow me to throw out a sign for you which reads, “faith and peace mean go; doubt and fear mean NO!
” …The one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
It’s perfectly healthy to forgive, but it’s not OK to be unwise.
When it comes to making up, don’t misunderstand me.
If you can’t get peace, that is an answer.” When God opens the door for marriage in your life, you will know that you know you are with the right person. Here’s why: in the dating world, thoughts like, “I can’t break up because…,” mean that doubt has given the keys to fear which will drive you down a rough road containing potholes of confusion and bumps of anxiety.
