That he’d worked up the courage to ask me out was flattering. We did go to the movie, but our budding almost-relationship ended with that conversation about faith.
I was going out with a non-Christian 10 years ago and I felt God spoke to me in answer to a prayer, telling me to go out with a Christian. It is a constant battle to remain faithful to this instruction, as time goes on I wonder when and who I will meet.
Some Christian friends of mine have married non-Christians and I think that works for them, but as I have heard directly from God (or at least I hope so! It is not easy, especially as child-bearing years slip by, especially having given up a very loving relationship 10 years ago.
Experience of non-Christian marriages from which they were now divorced (16%) 'I have had non-Christian boyfriends in the past, and my faith has always been the reason they have broken up with me.
We have had such different outlooks on life and our futures that it wasn't possible to reconcile those differences.''Personally I think you can be happy married to a non-Christian but I don't think it is God's best.
I have given a few close friends permission to hold me accountable on this and to give me a very hard time if they see me slip.''Have met some lovely caring men along the way but they did not share my faith and conversely some Christian men who shared my faith but who I did not love.
