"Just as I may eat, drink, sleep, walk, ride with, buy from, speak to, and deal with a heathen, Jew, Turk, or heretic, so I may also marry and continue in wedlock with him. Pay no attention to the precepts of those fools who forbid it. You will find plenty of Christians and indeed the greater part of them who are worse in their secret unbelief than any Jew, heathen, Turk, or heretic. A heathen is just as much a man or a woman God's good creation as St. Peter, St. Paul, and St. Lucy, not to speak of a slack and spurious Christian."
Martin Luther

Truth does not compromise and your boyfriend should find another girlfriend.
Some starry-eyed lovers may claim the other has become a christian just to hurry up and get down the isle, but in most cases this is more a concession than a renewing of the mind.
Your case may be different but again as I have said on other blogs, truly truly seek God's will and don't be too impatient to wait on his answer EVEN IF ITS NO.
Marriage, which seems like the goal, is a serious matter and can be life-long misery with a wrong decision made over a candle-light dinner or kisses in the moonlight.
God bless.

Plain and simple ....the letters of paul tell us " to be equally yoked ". This means liked minded .If you believe in Jesus , and your future spouse dose not . Then be weary and depart , till they have Jesus as there Savior. Better yet , look at yourself and see if you have Jesus as YOUR savior and you wont do this.

You are aware of the curse of God upon man in Genesis Chapter 3? The curse is real and takes effect once you are married. It's likely to creep up and ensnare you after the honeymoon period. If you're both not Christians it's likely going to be hard to control the curse.

If you don't believe in the curse, then watch Jerry Springer.

You love him, as you would any prospective husband. If it is meant to be, he will become Christian, but could you imagine living your life without him in it because of his personal beliefs? If that seems unfathomable, then you know you belong together. If you can spend your marriage praying for him but not preaching to him, then I think you should go for it.

"What if I am a non christian and my boyfriend is a christian and we want a life long relationship?"
Allow your mind to be opened to your Saviour, The Lord Jesus [The] Christ, by abandoning any preconceived notions you have embraced concerning religion of any kind. How can two walk together except they agree?
Two, whom the LORD joins together must of a necessity know the LORD who has joined them. There is only one, If you are refusing to exercise the faith that He has given you in Him, how can you have faith in any relationship you establish with another?
A "christian" is one who acknowledges the Lordship of Christ, are you open to that?

susieb,its not uncommon for people to keep asking questions about Gods word ,until they get an answer that linesup with the answers they want to hear.

love?something that is easy between parents and their children,between brothers,and sisters,cousins,aka family.Many people confuse attraction and love,some think love is what others do for them,still more take the words making love, and turn the act into a feeling.True love is sacrifice,giving,of placing the needs,wants,and welfare of others above your own.When someone says I dont love you anymore,or oh she,or he fell out of love,many times they truly never loved each other anyway.Dont confuse the love of,or the worlds way,or the flesh,s way of love,with what Gods way,or meaning of love is. They are totally different.

What if I am a non christian and my boyfriend is a christian and we want a life long relationship? We are more than sure that that's what we want. Blog Question.

I would consider that as a spiritual head of the house as Husband....what kind of infuence he might have on your offspring, and their offspring.....what about your extended family you'll marry into. Will you be infuenced?? Are you a one woman dynamo that will bring them all in? I would pray ernestly about this. I will too.

Most women have a better handle (maturity) than men at a young age in this regard, especially if you are asking the question.

I realized after reading this question again, that it is Heather who is the non-christian. How come this same question keeps coming back again and again? Does Heather think the answers will be different this time?

A long life together only comes when the two are committed to God. So, if this is what you really want, may I suggest that you give your heart over to God and allow the love of Christ to bring you into the Kingdom of God's greatness. His love will carry you and your boyfriend a long way. Without Him, I doubt that you will make it.
Spend a lot of time praying together, that's the secret to a long and prosperous life. True love only comes by the way of the Cross.

Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added unto you..that's goes for a husband as well. Don't you realize that he will be attending church without you, don't you know that he will be bending his knees and praying without you? because you have not given your life to Jesus, and he has, you will not be sharing your whole life with him. and I don't believe it will work out.
---a_friend on 7/15/09

One more thing for you to think about..draw a pyramid, put God at the very top, and your boyfriend at the right top to the side, now put yours at the bottom to the left..that's what it will be like..Just think if both names was at the top with Gods. It would be such a great marriage with God there with you. I hope you understand what I am saying.

1. Why are you a non-Christian? Is it the result of devotion to another religion, accident, or just haven't thought the issues through? (Don't answer to me, answer to yourself.) If you reject Christianity because you don't believe it to be true, make sure it's really Christianity you're rejecting, and not a charicature of it held by popular culture.

2. From my point of view, marriages work best when there is a shared spiritual basis--and even then they are hard enough.

Heather....Why are you dating a non-christian if you say you are a Christian? Why ask this question? You have already made up your minds.

many people will tell you that a believer amd non believer should not date,or marry. But they neglect to quote scripture that says the non believer is ,and iam not sure about the wording,are sanctified by the belief of the believer,atleast when they are married.Not sure exactly how this is acceptable to God,but I know somewhere in scripture it talks about one spouse being upheld by the other thru marriage.But just accepting christ would be a better way.
