Jesus spent time with unsaved sinners, loved them, and even served them; but he never called them his friends.He was friendly towards them, but that is different than opening your heart to someone and forming a “friendship with the world.” While God calls us to love the world, he also commands us to guard our own hearts (Proverbs ), to be aware of the damage people can cause us who are not lovers of God (James 4:4), and to “not be misled: ‘Bad company corrupts good character’” (1 Corinthians ).The only exception I believe in is if a few or several Christians get together and go out with one or two non-Christians just to have some good, wholesome fun together.
Also, I have seen alot of instances when Christians can be hurt or "go downhill" if they get involved in dating a non-Christian.
As a single Christian, one of the questions which can dominate the thoughts is, “Who will I marry?
” With so little Christians in the world, and even fewer who share the same interests as you, the odds are certainly stacked against a Christian guy or Christian girl seeking “the one.” The temptation is understandable, therefore, to look outside of the faith at unbelievers, looking for anyone with common interests who is relatable to you, regardless if they are a Christian or not.
