Verses in the bible about dating and relationships

But what does the Bible teach about dating and marriage? Is it a sin for a Christian to date a non-Christian?

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.

The Bible (and Jewish tradition) did allow for marriage between a believer and outsider, but only if the outsider converted. Otherwise, they were (and still are) commanded not to marry non-Christians/unbelievers.

We’re looking, sometimes it feels frantically, for love, for affection and security and companionship and commitment and intimacy and help.

Breakups in the church are painful and uncomfortable, and many of us have or will walk this dark and lonely road. God engineered romance to express itself in fidelity and loyalty — in oneness (Genesis ; Matthew 19:9; 1 Corinthians 7:2–13).

There are a few incidental mentions of race in the Bible (e.g., that Ethiopian's skin was different, Jeremiah ), but there is nothing saying one race is superior to another.

Moses was married to a Cushite (Ethiopian) woman (Numbers 12:1-16), and God was angry with Aaron and Miriam for criticizing that marriage.

No one begins dating someone hoping to break it off someday.
