Please prayerfully read and consider what God is saying to your heart —especially in light of the verses in 2 Corinthians -18.The following are links that will take you to these specific articles: • DATING NON-CHRISTIANS: Forbidden Fruits Appeal – Part 1 • DATING NON-CHRISTIANS: Forbidden Fruits Appeal – Part 2 And then below you will find another article that I encourage you to read.Following the transcript I offer a 4-point analysis.: [Christians over the years have said:] The Bible has reservations [about homosexual practice].
Please know that the person you are dating, considering dating, or even considering marrying (who is not a follower of Jesus), may be a wonderful person in many ways.
However, that doesn’t mean that you should be “yoked” with him or her in the sacred relationship of marriage. She decided the baby, that God promised to Abraham and to her, wasn’t going to come unless she made it happen.
And please don’t pull a “Sarah” where you take matters in your hands because of your doubts. So she manipulated her husband to sleep with her maid servant so a baby was born.

Tim Keller at Veritas [8 of 11] is getting significant play in Exodus circles as supporting Alan Chambers flawed theology in assuring gay Christians that unrepentant continuance in homosexual practice is no obstacle to inheriting the kingdom of God. 2011, I saw it for the first time only a couple of days ago. Tim Keller, prominent pastor of Redeemer Church in New York City (part of the Presbyterian Church of America, a conservative denomination that does not ordain women), being interviewed by I wrote a book about the gay rights movement because I was appalled by the oppression and the discrimination against homosexuals in my America. Even with these considerations I still find his response to be disappointing, especially as regards his unqualified insistence that homosexual practice will not send anyone to hell; but also for criticizing the church in an unqualified way for oppression of homosexuals, claiming that an act of homosexual intercourse is not as bad as an instance of greed (any greed), and viewing sin merely as something not good for human flourishing.
