What is dating with different theological backgrounds?
Theology can be defined as the study of God and your personal beliefs OR how somebody studies, interprets, and views God from their perspective. The word ‘personal’ is where we run into a little trouble here. Theology is rooted in truth but is also deeply connected with a person’s passionate beliefs and values based on their personal history as well as their specific divine purpose and calling from God.
Differing theology can cause significant conflict in relationships, even if the partners are both Christians. As crazy as it seems, this issue is way more common than you would think. Despite the fact that all Christians are supposed to be part of the same body of Christ, there are over 200 different denominations in the US alone! 200! These denominations all differ in some details which leads to many Christians having the same foundational truth but growing up, they may have been taught different beliefs and interpretations of scripture. Additionally, people may have different experiences or personal convictions that shape their theology.
