Question Do you know of any Bible verses pertaining to Christians dating non-Christians?
If the unbeliever leaves the Christian, the Christian is no longer bound to that spouse (1 Corinthians ), If the same concept applies to the case where a non-Christian abandons a Christian, one could conclude that being freed from the marriage allows one to remarry.Such scenarios often occurred in the early church as unbelievers were converting in large numbers.Paul gives specific instruction to believers who are married to unbelievers—stay together!What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols?" [2 Corinthians -16] These verses are commonly applied to marriage, but actually apply to any spiritual endeavor.The short answer is "no." However, it is good to examine the scripture behind the answer to understand it more completely, including why such a marriage is a bad idea.
The usual answer given the believer is from 2 Corinthians: Do not be bound together [unequally yoked] with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?
An unbeliever who practices Christian-like morality is going to be attractive to a Christian.
However, the chances that such a person will become a Christian, allowing the Christian to marry him/her is statistically remote.
