Of course, when you first meet someone, you may not know what their faith is.A simple casual date, perhaps with friends, would be okay.After all, faith lays the foundation for your world-views, and world-views will control how you see and respond to the world, and that includes relationships.

In other words: If you are a Christian, you have no business dating an unbeliever, or entering into a marriage with a non-Christian.

Dating an unbeliever can hinder your relationship with Christ.
Being around an ungodly person can make you start to sin more, act in a different way, talk in a different way, be led astray, and always remember if your life is all about Christ you won’t be able to express and share things about Christ which all believers love to do because there is no connection.
