I am a christian and dating an atheist
With this group, it sounds like WHATEVER you say that is not “” will be taken as a) the HEIGHT of rudeness and b) proof positive that this boyfriend is a bad influence on you and that they are right to try to separate you.The game is sort of rigged so that if they win if you break up with him, they win if you go all out trying to convert him, and they win the longer they get you to pay attention to them and the more you try to convince them that he’s great, because it gives them the illusion that you care about their opinion about this and that they have power in this arena. If you haven’t seen it, allow me to recommend The Wise Kids, an indie film directed by Stephen Cone (and art-directed by my genius friend Caity Birmingham).
Make it very boring to bring up this topic with you.God’s plan for humanity is evident in the lessons that we’re taught in scripture.It describes man and woman coming together in marriage (Ephesians ) and the two creating a Godly family (Ephesians 6:4) that comes to know, love and serve Him.And then feel such frustration and disappointment when they're actually not . I hope this has shed some light for those who were wondering about us.
Despite 2 Corinthians , this is one example where two individuals, with differing belief systems, have managed to create a happy union.Cori’s blog post about our marriage caused quite a bit of interest.Not only did many readers respond in the comment section, but both Cori and I have received emails from Christians and non-believers alike, interested in the fact that we have managed to make our relationship work despite our differing worldviews.I think the most frightening thing in any intimate relationship is accepting that someone is different from you.

Since we've been dating, I've gone out of my way to make sure I've been as caring as possible. I wanted to show her that I am my own person, and I am capable of love, compassion, and empathy without a god. I open the door for her as we enter the vehicle, open doors for her to buildings, get her water.… continue reading »

Feb 3, 2012. Or, as he likes to say, "I am my faith. My past boyfriends have been atheists or, like me, vaguely spiritual, but without subscribing to any organized religion. When I first told my friends I was dating an actual Christian, they were all uppity about it "Well, you have to respect someone's religious views.… continue reading »
