This is an important commitment that you must make as a Christian to see God’s blessing in your life in this area. I have heard Christians say, “I am only dating an unbeliever, I won’t marry him/her.” The Christian who does this is playing with emotional fire.

2 Cor.-16 says, “Do not be bound together with unbelievers.
