I think it's not a sin, but it's not wise to do. In the past, i've been open to the idea of trying out people of different faiths. I've impressed a foreign Jewish girl with my knowledge of ancient Hebrew and Judaism so it probably could work out maybe? I own a copy of the Koran and i'm willing to learn more about Islam. Honestly i have no probs having a Jewish or Muslim wife preferably cuz we're monotheistic and we can relate. I realized that these types of relationships rarely work as God himself isn't bonding us together.

What about your thoughts? You don't need to be Christian to join.

What if she believed in faeries and that fantasizing about a better life will make it come true? What are your limits in terms of what a potential partner could believe before they just seem too far out there for you?

To my knowledge, if you are religous, there's nothing in the bible that prohibits interfaith marriage, and although it may be difficult at times, it should be no more difficult than if you had different political views. If you truly love the girl than it shouldn't matter, and I would say go for it.

Differences in spiritual beliefs is a leading cause of relationship issues. It's something I avoid.

I think that an interfaith marriage can work out so long as neither party is very religious, otherwise religious differences would cause deep rifts in the relationship. The only way I could see an exception to this is a devout Sikh (Sikhism believes that all religions can lead to some sort of enlightenment) and a devout Buddhist (Buddhists are usually fine with other religions).

Lol than and a Sunni Shiite marriage
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

"Your views on interfaith marriage?" None of my business and don't force your business on me.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

It's such a fundamental difference in worldview... You're basically disagreeing about the fundamental nature of reality. It's hard to see how that wouldn't just cause conflict.

My old partner was a Christian. I don't see a reason not to. Conflict isn't necessarily negative the same way death isn't necessarily bad. I'd say just stop thinking too much and go with it and have fun.

lol i say when those beliefs start to take control of her life like believing that drinking an animal's blood brings health benefits or other superstitions. Maybe something like Scientology lol.

fair enough but i'd think avoidance leads to trouble later since your supposed to come to an agreement to disagree, don't ya think?

Very good point but some religions don't believe in absolutes like Hinduism. As long as there is a mutual understanding and acceptance then it could work.

lol true. Just because you have a conflict with someone's religious beliefs doesn't mean it's a bad thing. It's simply a sign that the relationship is growing.

DIsbelief in absolutes is absolute. It's just as much of a point of disagreement as anything else.

Beliefs affect actions in general. If you're with someone who believes that fantasizing about a better life will make it come true, guess what, they're probably not going to put in as much work to improve your shared life.

Personally, I don't see scientology as significantly more crazy than any other cult or religion. So I'd be very unlikely to consider anyone with religious beliefs.

Honestly there are some religions that are a complete no no like Satanism. I can never marry someone who is fully opposed to my religion. You have a very great point, beliefs must be put into action but i'm sure some religious people like Muslims can do that since our belief systems are somewhat compatible.

Truth is a relative concept in my view. Everyone has their own views on what is true and what isn't. I care about finding the Truth but i converted to Christianity and adopted God's Truth. Truth can be approached in many different ways.

Well, I completely disagree with you that truth is subjective. You don't get your own personal truth about things we know factually, e.g., Earth orbits the sun, and not the other way around.

What I hear when you say what you just said, is that for things aren't currently known, you want to make up your own subjective reality and call that truth. That's exactly my point. What happened to caring about truth, as in the truth about reality? Your's appears to be the kind of attitude that doesn't care what is actually true, only what you want to be true. It's completely antithetical to science.

I don't think scientists would call that Truth and if they did, it's only the truth of nature not of metaphysics or the supernatural.

I think it's not a sin, but it's not wise to do. In the past, i've been open to the idea of trying out people of different faiths. I've impressed a foreign Jewish girl with my knowledge of ancient Hebrew and Judaism so it probably could work out maybe? I own a copy of the Koran and i'm willing to learn more about Islam. Honestly i have no probs having a Jewish or Muslim wife preferably cuz we're monotheistic and we can relate. I realized that these types of relationships rarely work as God himself isn't bonding us together.

What about your thoughts? You don't need to be Christian to join.

What if she believed in faeries and that fantasizing about a better life will make it come true? What are your limits in terms of what a potential partner could believe before they just seem too far out there for you?

lol i say when those beliefs start to take control of her life like believing that drinking an animal's blood brings health benefits or other superstitions. Maybe something like Scientology lol.

Beliefs affect actions in general. If you're with someone who believes that fantasizing about a better life will make it come true, guess what, they're probably not going to put in as much work to improve your shared life.

Personally, I don't see scientology as significantly more crazy than any other cult or religion. So I'd be very unlikely to consider anyone with religious beliefs.

Honestly there are some religions that are a complete no no like Satanism. I can never marry someone who is fully opposed to my religion. You have a very great point, beliefs must be put into action but i'm sure some religious people like Muslims can do that since our belief systems are somewhat compatible.

I can't even understand why someone would adopt a belief system. What happened to caring about what is true?

Truth is a relative concept in my view. Everyone has their own views on what is true and what isn't. I care about finding the Truth but i converted to Christianity and adopted God's Truth. Truth can be approached in many different ways.

Well, I completely disagree with you that truth is subjective. You don't get your own personal truth about things we know factually, e.g., Earth orbits the sun, and not the other way around.

What I hear when you say what you just said, is that for things aren't currently known, you want to make up your own subjective reality and call that truth. That's exactly my point. What happened to caring about truth, as in the truth about reality? Your's appears to be the kind of attitude that doesn't care what is actually true, only what you want to be true. It's completely antithetical to science.

I don't think scientists would call that Truth and if they did, it's only the truth of nature not of metaphysics or the supernatural.

Science doesn't have "Truth" with a capital T, because "Truth" is made up in a feeble attempt to cover up the fact that what someone is saying or proposing isn't even true with a lower-case t.
