Catholics jews dating
A Christian dating a Mormon; a Christian dating a Jehovah's Witness; a Christian dating a Jew; a Christian dating a non-Christian; a Protestant dating a Catholic; a charismatic dating a non-charismatic, a Catholic dating a Mormon.
Over the years, I have received emails from people involved in these various types of interfaith dating relationships.
If it is the Christian writing me, I will tell him/her to study your own faith.
Understand what true Christianity teaches and what it does not teach.
Probably the most common interfaith dating situation I have received emails about is a Christian dating a Mormon.
The biggest difficulty I run into in addressing this issue is neither party in the relationship seems to realize there is a big difference between the two.
Many even refuse to believe, for instance, that Mormonism does in fact teach that our God used to be a man on some other planet out there, but by following Mormon ritual and rules he attained to godhood and was given this planet to rule over; and similarly, that Mormon men can one day become gods and be given their own planets to rule over. And again, I document very clearly on the Web site that such teachings are their official doctrines.
The problem is that many Mormonism are not even aware of these teachings.
But where the problem in a relationship starts is when one or the other becomes aware of these doctrines.
But I address all of these issues in my book and in various articles on the Web site.
The next step is to do some studying on what the other person's faith teaches.
I have even received emails telling me it is "ridiculous" or "silly" to say that there would be problems in such a relationship due to religious differences.
So the first thing I do is to encourage both parties to better understand their own and the other person's faith.
