Dating in the international church of christ weed friendly dating
This is not the normal way it should be done, but it happens every once in a while.
If God is working, if God is calling that person, He finds a way to bring him into His church, but always the point is conversion.
As in the physical plane, yoking together unlike creatures destroys harmony and productivity.
Two can't walk together unless they have the same beliefs and goals.
In the remainder of today's sermon I would like to explain the reasons why God does not want our single people to date and or marry outside His church.
There are many reasons, and they are good reasons—they are very strong spiritual reasons which to me are quite convincing when you look at them from a spiritual point of view from the Spirit of God.
Dating outside the church is fraught with obstacles and potential dangers, yoking a believer with an unbeliever and exponentially complicating the spiritual overcoming and growth process, exposing one to perdition or providing a grievous cross to bear.
I am going to read all the whole way through to II Corinthians 7:1 because whoever put the chapters and numbers on these verses did a poor job in this section here because the section goes from verse 11 all the way to verse 1 of chapter 7. We have spoken openly to you, our heart is wide open.God warns us many times in the Scripture not to do this.He does not say, "Don't date outside the church," but He says it in other ways that are very clear.But I want to make it very clear that the Church of the Great God does not teach that dating outside the church is wise. We teach that baptized members should not date outside the church, and that baptized parents should not allow their minor children to date outside the church.We do not teach that it is a good thing that our young people and older single people should date outside the church. Once children reach their maturity and still are not baptized, we then hope that they will decide not to date in the world because it is a trap that rarely produces good results.
