Scripture on dating

People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of Godliness but denying its power. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 Given the above scriptures, God clearly wants Christians to limit association/closeness with unbelievers.

The divorce rate is high enough as it is (even among “alleged” Christians).

Does the Old Testament have anything to say about marriages among God’s people and unbelievers?

Yes: “An alien living among you who wants to celebrate the LORD’s Passover must have all the males in his household circumcised; then he may take part like one born in the land. Exodus These scriptures tell us that quite clearly even in the Old Testament God is very protective and serious about His followers being involved with people who did not follow God.

At the same time, Paul teaches us that those who are already married to an unbeliever should stay married if they are happy.

In other words: If you are a Christian, you have no business dating an unbeliever, or entering into a marriage with a non-Christian.
