’, written by David Instone-Brewer, looked at the issue of the biblical teaching on marrying non-Christians.
’ Then we can decide if this person would help, whether they’re Christian or not. ’ is one that is no doubt debated among Christians all the time.
The reason isn’t because it’s a stimulating academic topic, but because many Christians are dating, or potentially will date, non-Christians.
This isn’t just an abstract concept for them; it’s a real issue.
Many have probably been told by someone in the church that it’s wrong, it’s bad and they shouldn’t do it. But they want to be in a relationship and there is nothing wrong with that.
After this point, you could even argue there was a cultural assumption that you marry within your own religion. Now I’m not saying marrying a non-Christian is right or wrong, that’s not the point.
