Atheist christian dating
It was for me to be with this godless man, and I let it get to me. He's way more Christ like than any of the Christian men I dated!" so screw anyone who judges him without getting to know him Religion just isn't a huge deal for me.
I am very active in my church, attend every Sunday, teach Sunday School, etc. Sometimes I see other couples at church and wish he was there with me, but in general I try to remember that it's healthy for people in a relationship to have separate interests.Then when our son gets older he'll have both sides of the picture to make his own choices on. I feel like I would be really uncomfortable knowing that my wife thinks I'm going to hell when I die. I don't try to convert him and he doesn't try to convert me.It certainly gives me a weird feeling around some of my friends. This means we can have conversations without feeling threatened - which I think is a big part of a lot of the conflict between people of different faiths.But in a situation like yours it’s still important to think things through on a deeper level. Because in the final analysis the challenge you’re facing is bigger than a mere difference of “religious opinion.” It’s not just a question of your willingness to “tolerate” someone else’s beliefs. And when worldviews collide, the results can be devastating for a marital relationship. They have to do this on an almost daily basis, and in response to a wide variety of practical problems. As an atheist, you assume that there is no higher authority. As far as you’re concerned, it’s just a question of “what works.” But your Christian girlfriend has a very different perspective.When two people are operating on the basis of two different worldviews, they can’t help but approach those problems and decisions from two very different angles. She lives her life in the light of a standard of moral and spiritual values. Ultimately, her goal isn’t simply to please you or gratify herself. If you take the view that her intentions are nothing but superstitious nonsense, we can almost guarantee that you’ll eventually reach an impasse.There’s a real danger of disconnect in the way the two of you will feel about each other in the long run. But if you and your girlfriend get married chances are good that the potential for conflict will only increase with time.
For instance, when it comes to raising children, tithing to a church, or dealing with serious illness and death, her approach is likely to be very different from yours.
I'm atheist and my girlfriend believes in God but isn't practicing. Her family all go to church etc, but she doesn't.
I think it can be easy to blow things out of proportion with how Christians can be sensationalised in the media. As she isn't really a "Practicing Christian", religion doesn't really make a difference in our lives, and it's not something we really talk about.
When we first got together and she mentioned her belief in God, we talked about it for a bit then realised neither of us will change our minds so we just don't bother now.
I'm with you, wife is Lutheran I'm atheist.
He never complains about the money I give to the church or Christian charities, nor about the time I spend working on church projects.
