I’m starting a new series this week… Unconditional Love. I want to ask you guys what you think about some things that would generally be deal breakers when it came being in a relationship. And lets find out if we can find a way to make these deal breakers work or should they stay deal breakers.
Our first discussion topics is can people of a different faith make it work?
Now you have two people. We’ll say a Muslim and a Christian. I don’t know the Muslim faith well so I can’t really say what they believe in. Can these two really make a relationship work? I mean aside from the obivious differences in the religions. Doesn’t this seem like a realtionship doomed for argument?
Practical things seem like they would become huge issues. Like how are the kids going to be raised? What do we do on Sunday? Somebody might not be willing to give up that pork…lol
But my big thing comes to tithing. Again I don’t know anything about Muslim faith, but I’m only assuming they don’t following tithing like a Christian would. As a man of the Christian faith, I believe tithing is critical. But what happens when funds get low and I’m willing to tithe before I pay my mortgage. Now if I’m with a person of a different faith that may cause a problem. Because tithing was okay with her until money got scarce, now it’s just an unneccessary expense. And seeing as how most divorce happens over money, that seems like one in the making.
So how would we make it work? Can we make it work? Can people of different faiths make it work?
What if it wasn’t something similar like Judiasm and Christianity? What if it were a Christian and a Devil Worshipper? Could they make it work? Let me know what you think.
