Should I leave my Church?Watch

The Church sound rather controlling.
“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.
Dating within Christianity is reasonable I feel, dating only within the congregation is most certainly not
And yes, obviously you should leave your church.
Here's the definition of "reality".

and here's the definition of "subjective"
influenced by or based on personal beliefs or feelings, rather than based on facts
