This faith in Jesus gives us confidence because we know that not only can God save us through Jesus but that he has. Is this the basis on which you say you are a Christian?

But the beauty of marriage is God sustains you despite your flaws. ” Can you imagine how constantly hearing this question from friends, family, and unsuspecting old ladies at church can make some people believe they have a problem? When you date, allow the community of people around to speak into your relationship. Your friends are able to see inconsistencies and problems you can’t because they are outside the storm.
The brokenness you see in yourself and the brokenness you experience from your spouse point both of you to the only perfect one, God. Get to know yourself.” And as soon as the person you are dating smacks his or her gum the wrong way, you are out. If you aren’t ready to date, don’t allow the cultural pressure to override God’s plan. I know too many men and women who refused to listen to people around them, and their prideful arrogance resulted in a failed marriage. Find men and women you trust, and allow them to speak into your relationship.
I have a girlfriend that I have been with for over two years. So before I answer your question I just want to ask if you are this confident in your own salvation? This confidence does not come from our effort (“If I am good enough then I’ll be saved!
If Jesus came back right now before we got married or even after would I still be saved? It’s then a matter of persevering in faith and obedience through your whole life.
A "yoke" was a farm implement that bound two animals together so that they could work together as a team.
Modern translations remove the "yoke" and translate the intent of the verse, warning believers, "Do not be bound together with unbelievers." Does this apply to marriage?
I have received a few emails from Christians (and even one from a non-Christian) asking if it is okay for a Christian to date or marry an unbeliever.
