He encouraged me to go back to church and spend time with Christian friends because he knew it would help me. I just am happy with my decision, and believe that it is not a sin and God will bless my marriage and aid me through the difficulties. I am a Christian woman; I love Jesus and my heart follows Him. I always said I wouldn’t date non-Christians, but he caught me when I was slipping in my faith due to problems with my mum’s mental health.Throughout our relationship he’s really encouraged me in my faith … But I do not know how to handle the simplistic thinking from many members of the church who think that my relationship is wrong—that I should either end it, or be living in sin. I’ve been dating this man for two years now and he prepared me that he’ll be making a proposal soon.But when we announced our engagement I received a few emails from the pastor saying the Bible is clear that the relationship is wrong and that I need to end it. I knew that, out of love, I would receive some hostility from Christian friends, but it is getting to the point where I do not want to go back to church, because of the volume of people telling me to end the relationship—when they cannot give me a reason for doing so, other than him being a non-Christian.

If you know someone who is in a committed relationship of which you do not approve, an excellent question to ask yourself—especially before venturing to offer any opinion on that relationship—is whether or not anyone but you gives a rolled-up church bulletin what you think of that relationship.Dear Christians who make a point of letting their Christian friends who are in serious relationships with non-Christians know that they think it’s wrong for a Christian to date or marry a non-Christian: If I ever meet you, I am going to beat you up. More importantly, does anyone actually you’re a Christian, and be quiet about it? Offering unsolicited critical opinions of others makes you a toxic gossip, which is one of the lowest things anyone can be.And being shy means that I am a ‘good’ Christian girl.However, for me, as the years passed, I wondered if this was true. It seemed that in every other area of life God requires my active participation.
