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?
Over the years we have counseled a number of young people who have become involved in relationships with Mormons of the opposite sex.
Typically, these Christians are encouraged to participate in the missionary lessons and join the LDS Church if they hope to take their relationships to the next level.
Often this results in a compromise with the children dividing their attendance between two different churches that profess major doctrinal differences. If dating is considered a possible precursor to marriage, then it makes sense to set the standards high at these beginning levels.
Why should the Mormon seriously consider following the Bible when the Christian obviously is not heeding its admonition?
“Mixed faith” marriages are a recipe for disaster, both for the couple and their children.
In 2 Corinthians , Paul wrote, “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? ” While Paul was not specifically talking about dating and marriage in this passage, he could have easily been referencing the lack of wisdom in such situations, especially since he had addressed the problems of mixed marriages earlier in 1 Corinthians –15.
” 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.
My boyfriend is mormon and i am christian and i am trying to witness my christian faith but do not have all the answers . Just to clarify: I am NOT at ALL being persuaded by the mormon faith.
