Some people also call it "evangelistic dating." While most people fall into missionary dating because they find someone they are attracted to and want to date, there are some people that seek out missionary dating opportunities in order to convert people to Christianity.

Baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to do everything I have told you.

I will be with you always, even until the end of the world." (CEV)While there are a number of Bible verses warning Christians against marrying non-Christians, there are also some other major reasons to question missionary dating.

Many of the scriptures seem to discourage marriages between a Christian and non-Christian, so some people feel that dating is not the same.

So dating a non-Christian could also come down to your views of dating.

As you know, there are some Christians who believe that any dating is inappropriate.

It seems to me that one has trouble defending this view from Scripture.

While people who are "lukewarm" in their faith tend to see more success in dating or marrying non-believers, the situation is much more challenging if you are strong in your faith.

However, there are couples that have overcome the hurdles and both people become stronger Christians.

Another argument against missionary dating involves questioning the reasons for someone becoming a Christian.
