So I’ve been talking to this guy for a while, known him longer than I’ve been a part of my Church and now I realise that I quite like him. However, my Church says that we can’t date outside of the Church never mind do anything else.
When faced with the reality that this would be choosing worldly men and sin over God, I back down but it’s so difficult sometimes. I feel like I’m compromising my happiness but then what’s a little sadness and disappointment now next to external life with God.

Why do you equate what your Church says with what your God says?

The Church sound rather controlling.

Yes, I think so, the church shouldn't constrict what you can do, what you do is between you and God. If you feel that God is with you and calling you to him that's where you should go. Talk to him, away from church, just in your house or outside or something, where you just focus on him. He will tell you what to do because he knows what's best for you.

Tbh you should look into Islam if you're having doubts then a lot of your questions can be answered just visit your local mosque and try it out.

2 Corinthians 6: 14
“Do not try to work together as equals with unbelievers, for it cannot be done. How can right and wrong be partners? How can light and darkness live together?”

Surely this ought to be open to interpretation (you’re not going to seclude yourself from the world)but when talking about one of the most intimate relationships you can form idk.

When you say you can’t date outside of your church do you mean outside of your specific church (the congregation) or outside Christianity?

Dating within Christianity is reasonable I feel, dating only within the congregation is most certainly not

God isn't real. So you can do what you like.

And yes, obviously you should leave your church.

You believe that God isn’t real, but you don’t get the authority to dictate what others believe sorry

That's true. People are free to believe what they wish. However their doing that doesn't alter objective reality.

I see..

Here's the definition of "reality".

the actual state of things, or the facts involved in such a state

and here's the definition of "subjective"

influenced by or based on personal beliefs or feelings, rather than based on facts
