Dating outside your religion/denomination is difficult for any relationshio. Its seems more difficult for men because they always expect the woman to follow them unquestioningly.
Adventists are considered part of mainstream Christianity but they have beliefs that dont necessarily mesh with many other denominations.
So dating outside your denomination is going to present some difficulties.
I know enough about Adventism that i wouldnt date an Adventist man because we wouldnt share enough beliefs.
I certainly wouldnt do a second date with one if he perhaps was trying to sell me his denomination or was too preachy or rigid.
by Tom Warner ONCE UPON a time, I became a Sabbath-keeper.
A few years later, I came to see that keeping a day wasn't a requirement for New Covenant saints, so I eventually went back to meeting with and ministering to a first-day congregation. What I write here should not be taken as an attack on brothers and sisters whom I love, but merely an explanation for how my mind was changed. In the late 1980s, while pastoring a loving congregation of first-day Christians in Ashland, Maine, I read Making Sunday Special, by Karen Mains.
She argued that the Ten Commandments are perpetually binding, and that the Sabbath obligation had been transferred to Sunday.
I was impressed, but wondered, “Where does the New Testament clearly teach that the Sabbath obligation applies to Sunday?
” That question led me to books by seventh-day scholars: The Forgotten Day by Desmond Ford (1) and From Sabbath to Sunday by Samuele Bacchiocchi.(2) Eventually, I was convinced by their arguments.
So, Shelley and I and our two children began to observe the seventh-day Sabbath, while I continued serving our Sunday congregation.
Our early Sabbath-keeping proved to be a good experience in many ways.
We would have a Sabbath-welcoming meal after sunset Friday, with opportunity for each of us, and sometimes guests, to tell what God had been doing in our lives that week.
Then we tried our best to unplug from stress until Saturday sunset.
