Look at Solomon: the Bible says his wives turned him towards other false Gods and idols.
So even the wise King Solomon made some mistakes in this regard, and it caused him to turn from God.
According to the scriptures, relationships are very important, and faith does matter.
After all, faith lays the foundation for your world-views, and world-views will control how you see and respond to the world, and that includes relationships.
So what does the Bible say about dating or marrying an unbeliever?
It is important to keep in mind that when a believer marries a non-believer, it can lead the Christian astray.
For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father.
1 Kings 11:4 The scripture above should be a “wake-up call” to Christians who think they can marry someone and not be influenced by their beliefs or faith.
The Bible says Solomon was the wisest man who had lived at that time, yet even he got swept up into idolatry.
The Bible is clear that Christians should not have close friendships with non-Christians.But what does the Bible teach about dating and marriage? Is it a sin for a Christian to date a non-Christian?
