I for one certainly understand and empathize with the reasons single Christians practice missionary dating.Most will say dating an unbeliever or thinking of “unequally yoked” dating because there are simply not enough decent Christian prospects out there, or they are afraid or tired of going through life single and alone.And it doesn't mean that there aren't some people out there who got married when one was not a believer, then after several years the spouse became a Christian.

How long was it going to take for me to listen to God? I have heard all the stories, not to mention I have a few of my own. I guess I have always known in my heart that any guy who didn't love God, didn't put Christ first and wasn't growing in his relationship with Christ by the evidence of his fruit is someone I shouldn't date. As each relationship unfolded, there would be a pattern.For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. God warns us when we join ourselves with those not walking with God, (those who don't believe, those who might even say they believe but their lives show otherwise), we take the risk that they may pull us away from God and the purpose he has for our lives. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? As God has said: "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people." "Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord.Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. 2 Corinthians -17 The goal should always be to be equally yoked. When things go wrong, we can go to Christ together to get help.The dude become a Christian and the two are now enjoying a blissful marriage, ministering together in a local church.Although I have no real scientific data on missionary dating, I would definitely say that for every missionary dating success story, I have probably heard of 9 others that have failed miserably.

Some of you haven't even begun to wait, while others may have given up.
