Tonight's Question Box will be of particular interest to some of you, although I hope it will be instructive to us all.
The question is "What are the ' Christian rules' for dating?
One of us is a longtime member of an Assemblies of God church, and a convinced Pentecostal.
I (just call me “Aimee”) speak in tongues, privately and sometimes in church services.
" Whenever I get a question like that I'm not quite sure how I should respond.
I’m not an “evangelist” for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and I don’t think speaking in tongues makes a person any more holy or mature than any other Christian. I also think salvation is a free choice, and that somebody can choose to stop being a Christian and, then, lose his salvation.
That’s what my boyfriend says makes me a “five-point Arminian,” although I’d never heard that language before.
This one of us (just call me “Calvin”) agrees with my church’s doctrine.
In case you misunderstand, we’re not arguing about this. We talk a lot about Jesus and a lot about the Bible, but, probably out of love for each other, we don’t bring up speaking in tongues, miraculous healing, or predestination! We know it’s not right to marry an unbeliever (we agree on that part of 1 Corinthians! But is it okay to marry a fellow believer in another denomination?If we do marry, should we continue to go to our separate churches?
