They Claim to Be in a Relationship With Christ But Are Not Truly Invested
Just because someone you're dating professes to be Christian, doesn’t necessarily mean they have Biblical beliefs or true Christian values. Be cautious of those who profess to be Christian, but don’t model Christ in their actions. The Bible tells us there are many. Jesus warns: “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote” (Isaiah 29:13). Titus 1:16 says “They claim to know God, but they deny Him by what they do. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit to do anything good.” Some of these candidates will sin on purpose, sinning now and disobeying God’s teaching. The Bible say, “Whoever says, ‘I know him,’ but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person” (1 John 2:4). Before we get involved in any romantic relationship, it's important that we keep our eyes and ears open for this truth.
