Scripture missionary dating

And the simple fact is that efforts at missionary dating usually don’t “work out.” I have heard from and talked to many, many people over the years who married someone in the context of missionary dating or dating a person who was a very new believer, only to have the person later renounce Christ — with devastating consequences for the marriage and the spiritual and emotional wellbeing of both the believing and non-believing spouse.

It’s also true, as I have written many times before (check out the first article in my “Biblical Dating” series for one example), that the purpose of dating is not recreation, or to “practice being married.” The purpose of dating is to find a spouse.

It stands to reason, then, that if one cannot marry an unbeliever, it is at least spectacularly unwise — and nearly always an indication of sin — to search for a spouse among unbelievers.
