Can I Date A Cult Member

I've met an amazing man who is a Jehovah's Witness. He is starting to understand Jesus. I want to be in a relationship with him. I'm trying to listen to God but I am having trouble distinguishing his voice. How can I be sure I'm following God's will?

There are a lot of seamingly amazing nonChristians, but after taking a deeper look you will find that there really is nothing amazing at all, just a dead branch. Perhaps you will lead him to the Lord in prayer, and he will become a born-again Christian, then he would truly be amazing.

God's Word IS God's will. The Bible says that we are NOT to be unequally yoked to unbelievers. Chances are you are probably following your own voice or Satan's voice on this, because this is NOT of God. Read the Bible, and you will start to hear God's voice in the pages (maybe or maybe not out loud).

Leslie - Mima's response says it all!!

a co-worker who once seriously considered joining recognized something about this group - JW's are salespeople with agenda of JW using God as their product ...they typically don't associate with people outside of JW - when they find out 'this man' knows you and you're not 'of them' he will begin to 'recruit' you ...probably subtly at first wonder if you're following Gods will? distance yourself from this man - clear to hear

Leslie: How do you know that you're not the cult member?

2 Corinthians 6:14 declares, Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?Do not be misled: "Bad company corrupts good character (1 Corinthians 15:33).

Having any kind of intimate relationship with an unbeliever can quickly and easily turn into something that is a hindrance to your walk with Christ. We are called to evangelize the lost, not be intimate with them. There is nothing wrong with building quality friendships with unbelievers but that is as far as it should go. If you were dating an unbeliever, what would honestly be your priority, romancing them or winning their soul for Christ?

It is great that the guy you are interested in has some faith. I have a cousin who is a Jehovah's Witness. However, I don't think it would hurt for you to remain friends with this guy and at the same time, remind him that Jesus is not interested in religion or the things that religion often teaches. He is interested in us having a relationship with Him and us trusting and believing that He is the Son of God, rose from the dead, and forgives our sins.

God will answer you with peace, but only God's people can have this. Getting into the flesh is a biggy for me. I do not want it. God, with me lately is saying try it and find out. Ofcourse in relationship it is different than just understaking perhapes a chore of some kind. Pray, listen and go. If you are walking close to God He will through road blocks in front of you, if you are not in His will.. Don't be stubborn. Have a good day.

2CO 6:14 Be ye not unequally YOKED together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

If it be of God dont rush sometimes we ask God for help and we already have our mind made up. He will let us know all we have to do is be on his time not ours. Not My will but thy will.

Here's what you're having trouble with,"I want to be in a relationship with him."
---Mima on 1/7/08

Leslie, Let me say from experience,they knew the identity of Jesus as far back as 1884. When Jesus asked His disciples "who do you say I am?" they correctly answered "SON of the living God" You may spoil his faith by trying to tell him that the Father and Son are one and the same! "My Father is greater than I" "Not my will but your will" etc..

Good rule of thumb: When in doubt, don't.
---Jack on 1/7/08

Hi, my case, when I am not sure of how God wants me to go with a lady I appreciate, I'm getting somewhere by waiting until I am clear about what to do. See how I am with God, and see what we do together while I stay how I can be with God. Your man of interest, if he is understanding Jesus, can learn that he needs to love you by freeing you to make sure with God > Colossians 3:15. You need more than one person who is good for you, anyway, not putting too many eggs into one basket.

Christians are not to be yoked together with unbelievers.Dating leads to marriage.Witness to him and lead him to the Lord if you can but even if he says he accepts Jesus as Savior and starts to attend a christian church I would wait at least 6 months to date to make sure he isn't pretending just to get a date or more.Be friendly and that is all until you're sure.

It would be unwise to enter a relationship because inevitably your faiths would clash.(at the identity of Jesus- Mighty God/Angel)...or worse yet you are converted witness, I don't know your faith, but you should discuss Jesus' claims about himself together and see for yourself what a barn burner this creates. (See Hebrews 1:5, Colossians 1:15-23 John 1:1-4, 5:23-24 14:6 KJV please)
