[Life 201 is a weekly advice column headed by pastor, counselor and RELEVANT Podcast member Eddie Kaufholz.Eddie answers questions and gives advice on issues you want to hear about.Is it OK for a Christian to date a nonbeliever for practice, even if she doesn't intend the relationship to progress because the man is an unbeliever?I'm single, 26, and going on three years as a Christian.
What I mean is this: if fighting in your dating world means hitting, pushing, shoving, name calling, yelling, manipulating, or anything rude that occurs on a consistent basis then, of course, turn walk away. In bad relationships, bad things happen and will continue to happen if you let them. Wisdom always does now what brings satisfaction later.
Christian finally comes along I'm going to be even more socially cumbersome due to years of inactivity.
What do you think of casually dating (no commitment, no physicality, etc.) as a sort of practice, even if the other is not a Christian?
For you, being smart means that after you leave the relationship you shouldn’t go back!
When God gave the Israelites an exodus opportunity, they took it. If your relationship is even slightly abusive, consider this your sign to exit the relationship NOW!
Anyone who doesn’t encourage you to seek a deeper relationship with God, isn’t someone worth giving your time to.
