Christian dating a non christian
John Piper is founder and teacher of desiring and chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary.
For 33 years, he served as pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
I was convinced that after I shared the Gospel with Duncan, he would believe in Christ and our yokes would then be equal. One year into our relationship, I began to hear God speaking to me. I had dreams of Duncan and I constantly fighting, of Duncan with another girl, and of me being in church with a guy who was not Duncan.
While I struggled to make sense of these dreams, I sensed the Holy Spirit prompting me that the relationship was wrong.
I knew that she had been praying for my mother’s salvation too.
My mother eventually converted to Christianity when I was nine and I accepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior when I was 16.
I cannot be certain that I will eventually be married in the future.
Jesus said: “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. I had ignored His promptings and His Word throughout my relationship with Duncan, which lasted two years.I have always been amazed at my dad’s boldness in marrying a non-believer, and his patience and trust in God to make the flower bloom as he planted the seed of God’s love in my mother’s heart. Duncan and I were colleagues and we worked on many projects together.Day by day, we became closer and we started hanging out exclusively.It also troubled me that Duncan was finding it especially difficult to forgive people who had wronged him. I would get so exhausted that I gave up trying to change his mind.I would give in, not wanting to continue our fights.
