One problem that often arises is a religious stalemate in the marriage.
When children come along, the couple has to determine a strategy for church attendance.
But am trying to share my CHRISTIAN faith, but they have a lot of “justifications” and i do not have all the answers and want to represent God well. Yes, I have studied Mormonism since the early 1980s, much longer than you have been alive!!! First of all, I’m going to lay it all out on the line. ) I’ll just come out and say in the very beginning that I think it is not very wise for you to be dating a Mormon, or anyone outside your faith, for that matter.
I don’t want you to take anything I say personal or as an attack, but if I were your father, this is what I would say. In our book we have a chapter titled “Why Won’t You Allow Your Daughter to Date a Mormon?
Well, that’s a lot of information, but as it said, you’re really dancing on dangerous ground by dating someone whose idea of God, Jesus, and salvation is quite different from yours.
In addition, think about what you’re asking each other.
Unfortunately, that sounds pretty selfish, especially for the one (or both) of you who says to him/herself, “I am not going to convert, but I’ll do everything possible to get him to convert.” If so, voila, you get to keep the relationship.
), using romantic attachment in an attempt to change the faith of those they’re dating is certainly a wrong application of this passage. Christians who emotionally manipulate Mormons for the purpose of conversion place their integrity in a precarious situation.
Why should the Mormon seriously consider following the Bible when the Christian obviously is not heeding its admonition?
” I won’t quote the whole chapter here, but here’s part of what we say: Many local LDS congregations host weekend dances and other social events to which their young people are encouraged to invite nonmember friends.
Nonmembers often end up becoming attracted to the wholesome Latter-day Saints.
