The blog written last year for Christian Connection ‘Should you marry a non-Christian?’ Then we can decide if this person would help, whether they’re Christian or not. ’ is one that is no doubt debated among Christians all the time.The reason isn’t because it’s a stimulating academic topic, but because many Christians are dating, or potentially will date, non-Christians.In fact, this is about more than the pews they sit, or don’t sit on, on a Sunday.
