Another thing you might be wondering is whether it is a good idea for you as an atheist to date a Christian girl? You and a Christian girl are not Romeo and Juliet.
Sorry, im a christian dating an atheist all
The most important thing about any person in the world is their heart. This is particularly important when it comes to love. This means that a Christian girl will not reject you simply for being an atheist. The other question that is being asked here is whether you should even try dating Christian girls, or you should stick to atheist girls instead?
Christian girls make excellent girlfriends. This is all thanks to some good old Christian virtues, which were instilled in them by their parents and the church.

Christian girls are or are supposed to be kind and patient, understanding and caring. They are great listeners, because they care about other human beings. They also care about other beings, such as animals, and are very good with them. Pretty much all you ever wanted from a girlfriend or a wife. One issue that bothers many atheists or non-Christians is the matter of celibacy. It is widely believed that Christian girls are saving themselves for marriage.
In one, your girlfriend, who is a devout Christian, has vowed herself to celibacy until marriage. She does not want to have sex and you, of course, are respecting her decision. Is it such as bad thing? Have you not had enough of meaningless sex?
Is sex that important, after all? And what is more important - having a great friend, a companion, someone who knows your heart and who helps you in the times of need, someone who is always there for you and who is also funny, smart and fun to be around?
On the other hand, there are many Christian girls who are not celibate. Yes, it is possible - you can be religious and full of faith and still practice safe, loving sex. But bear in mind that we are not talking about mindless, pointless, loveless sex with multiple partners here.

It took 7 years of love and prayer for me to saved from my Atheism and I am not a fluke case. Apr 26, 8. Like x 1 List.
Apr 26, 9. You'll have to judge for yourself whether it's good or bad to date a non-Christian, but I'll advise against planting a seed; missionary dating produces lukewarm Christians, thoroughly mediocre in their orientation. The only purpose of dating someone is to see if you want to marry them.
You can't Biblically marry an Atheist. This is bad news right from the get-go. I would end it.
Like now. The way dating should be: you're friends for a while, get to know each other, THEN go out if all works together. In all seriousness, do not date to convert. It will end badly. If anything, be friends with her and show her what a true Christian looks like. By sticking around, you're yoking yourself unevenly. Apr 27, Sorry bro, it probably ain't gonna work out. Romantic relationship? Here's why:. It's tough, I know but it's as others have said; the Bible's pretty clear that we shouldn't be yoked with unbelievers.
I know from personal experience how hard that is when you want to believe otherwise, hon. My husband grew up in a Christian family. He told me that he believed when we met and started dating. He knew from the start how important my faith is to me and I was so pleased to be with someone from a Christian background that I ignored the few warning bells in my mind. We got engaged and it became clear that while he believed in God as in that He exists- but even satan believes that!!!!
I ignored it for a few months. I told myself that I might be what he needed to to come to Jesus. I told myself that if I went and ended the engagement because he wasn't a Christian it would turn him against Jesus not to him and he'd already had enough bad experiences as a kid his family were Christians but his dad had problems that meant life when hubby and his sister were young was pretty grim. In the end, no amount of excuses I could come up with could stand up- and I had the horrible task of having to tell him that I was ending our engagement and why.

I told him how sorry I was that I'd let it get as far as it had. We talked for hours- the conversation turning more and more to Jesus until our relationship wasn't the issue at all.
To cut a long story short, although he had Christian parents, they'd never really told him the gospel. He was fascinated- and in the end wanted Jesus himself. I prayed with him as he received Jesus as his Saviour. Did I yell 'hallelujah' and put the ring back on? I wanted to- but didn't. I knew it had to be real- that motivation wasn't to say what I wanted to hear just to keep me. I had to 'test' it I suppose. But it turned out to be very real- and this year we'll celebrate out 21st wedding anniversary.
Breaking off that engagement was harder than you'll believe. If I hadn't, though, we'd never had talked and he may very well not have become a Christian.
So many things would have been wrong.

Life has been very hard for us at times- and we simply would never have made it without a shared faith. Now, my story sounds like a nice Christian fairytale ending but it doesn't mean it's been easy. Nor does it mean that if you do the same that your girlfriend will suddenly 'see the light' and also become a Christian.
It may be that you'll break up and that will be that. BUT: Think about a few things.

Nurturing a relationship can be a difficult task, and is more difficult if you do not share the same basic beliefs, such as a Christian in a relationship with an atheist. The Bible has two passages that deal directly with this issue - 1 Peter and 1 Corinthians , and the example of Abigail in her marriage to Nabal found in 1. I'm An Atheist Guy, Should I Date A Christian Girl? Many people think that Christian dating is an exclusive thing, a club where only members are allowed. To a certain extent, this is true, since the whole point of Christian dating is for Christians to meet other Christians and potentially start a relationship.
Do you really want a future with someone who can't truly understand what it is to love and serve God? They may 'get the idea' or be ok with it for you- but there'll always be the most important part of yourself that you can't share. How do you know that God hasn't got someone else in mind for you? He may have a woman who can truly be your equal- who will strengthen and support you in ways a non- believer can't.
Jul 31, Can an atheist and a believer build a strong, lasting marriage? My girlfriend and I are terrific together. Her family loves me and everyone else says we're the perfect couple. There's just one catch: she's a strong Christian, but I don't believe in God at all. Do you think the religious differences between us pose a serious problem? Personally, I could care less what other people believe as. A girl just emailed me asking for advice. "I'm falling in love with an atheist" she explained. The man she's falling for just happens to be her dance partner, causing her to interact with him several times a week. Knowing that she's not the only girl who has fallen for someone who doesn't share her faith, she graciously agreed to let me share my response with you. I am an atheist and I am happily married a Christian. Let me try answering from my perspective. I think you should share your beliefs and not hide them from your partner if you want a healthy relationship. But you need to manage your expected out.
What if you're holding your girlfriend back? You may actually be showing her that it's not a big deal being a Christian. If she accepts your faith and you accept and don't mind her lack of faith, then faith isn't really as important as you'd like her to believe. Do you see what I'm saying? If it's ok with you then she's not going to be in any real hurry to change her mind.
Being saved isn't going to be high on her agenda. Maybe something like this would be the wake up call she needs. It may be something she doesn't act on for years- but it may germinate slowly! As Katautumn says, you may not think so now but you may get dragged down over the years.
What she accepts now may very well be a cause of contention between you in the future. One day she may resent you going to church every week or being involved in other things.

Whenever I'm going through emotional turmoil or have a tough decision to make, she'll say, 'I'll pray for you.'.
What happens if you have children? Will she be happy to have them brought up going to church and being taught the Christian faith? Will she end up feeling resentful and left out? Will she decide that because she had bad experiences that there's no way she'll let the same happen to her children and so keep them away from church or resent you trying to 'indoctrinate' them? How would you feel either way if your own wife couldn't share in the family's faith or if she kept your children away from the Lord?
You can see why we're told not to be unequally yoked- it can cause so much contention and heartache. They're certainly things to think and pray about.
Apr 28, Thank you all for the great spiritual advice. After a day or two, things between her and I just didn't work.
God and his goodness is what I'm all about and I will not compromise my faith or the gift that was given to me the day Christ died on that cross. I don't own my heart and any woman that tries to grab a hold of my heart and dwell within must get permission to do so by my Heavenly Father! Jul 28, You don't need to pray about it.

The Bible is clear that you shouldn't be dating someone who isn't a believer. What everyone else said!
