Christian dating muslim man

However, increasing numbers of Catholics are marrying Jews, Muslims and adherents of other religions (the canonical term here is “disparity of cult,” but “interfaith” or “interreligious” marriage are more user-friendly terms).Catholic-Jewish couples, because of their greater number and longer history in American society, have a growing list of resources, including books, Web sites and support groups like the national Dovetail Institute and the Chicago-based Jewish Catholic Couples Group.One man even cut short a trip abroad, at his wife’s behest, to be present.“Mixed marriage,” the canonical term for marriage between a Catholic and a member of another Christian church, is a fact of life in America’s religiously plural society.

Allah says: “Do not marry idolatresses (al mushrikāt) till they believe; and certainly a believing maid is better than an idolatress even though she would please you; and do not marry idolaters (al Mushrikīn) till they believe (hata yūminū), and certainly a believing slave is better than an idolater, even though he would please you.(see quote from Romans 10:9 above) In the book of John it says about Jesus A Muslim is someone who stands condemned by God because he does not believe in Jesus.The Bible makes it clear that if a woman has the freedom to choose her own husband, (which in those times only happens in the rare circumstances that the woman becomes widowed - otherwise marriages were always arranged), they must marry a Christian.A study by Creighton University’s Center for Marriage and Family in 1999 indicates that today roughly 40 percent of all Catholics marry non-Catholics.Most of these unions involve Catholics and other Christians (a more ecumenically sensitive term is “interchurch” marriage rather than “mixed,” which has some negative connotations).Occasionally both Muslims and Christians feel pressure to convert to another's faith in order to avoid fallouts and ostracism.The new guidelines by the Christian-Muslim forum reinforce the need for religious leaders to accept inter-faith marriages and warn that no one should ever feel forced to convert.My answer to that is going to be a"no," but I hope you would read my explanation below.It would be helpful for us to look at the Bible’s definitions of what is a Christian and what is a Muslim.Estimating the number of people in mixed-faith marriages is difficult.The 2001 census suggests 21,000 but demographers believe the figure is considerably higher.
