Jehovah witness dating a non believer

Whatever the circumstances, you may have known it was wrong to get involved.But sometimes it is hard to resist attention from the opposite sex. During his first year in high school, his parents were going through a divorce. A girl in school seemed always to have the right word of encouragement for him. The Dangers Left unchecked, such feelings can get you in real trouble.This was the case with Sheila when she realized that a schoolmate had a crush on her. “During lunch hours he would come over and eat with me.During study periods in the library, he would seek me out.” Sheila’s feelings for the boy began to grow. If you can absolutely determine that Jehovah’s Witnesses are a cult, so what? The label or word itself may not be important, but the level of cult-like, abusive control the religion has over its members should be of concern to anyone inside the religion and to those studying the bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses. That’s not a flippant question, as being able to label Jehovah’s Witnesses a cult or not doesn’t really change or affect anything. “Hey, we’re not technically a cult, so you have to let us in, Russia.” I don’t think that’s going to work, but try it on Putin and let me know how it goes.

Writer Andrea Eagan thus advised youths: “Having the same religious background isn’t important if neither of you is religious. Youths among Jehovah’s Witnesses know this is a matter of obedience to God’s Word, which urges Christians to marry “only in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians ) Since dating is not mere recreation but a prelude to marriage, it would displease God for one of his servants to get romantically involved with someone who has not dedicated his or her life to Jehovah.

It was not hard for a friendship to develop.” In the case of 14-​year-​old Pam, a neighborhood boy went so far as to give her a ring as an expression of his affection for her.

Admittedly, it has not always been a case of a Witness being the innocent victim of advances.

First Corinthians explains that an unbeliever simply “does not receive the things of the spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot get to know them, because they are examined spiritually.” Think of how much your religious values have shaped your emotions​—the joy you experience at Christian meetings, the thrill of sharing the Bible’s message with a receptive person, the pleasure of studying the Bible itself.

Can an unbeliever possibly grasp​—much less share—​such feelings? Paul thus exhorts Christians: “Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers.
