Yesterday I was having one of my wiki moments and came across an entry for Missionary Dating, which, apparently, is also known as "dating for Jesus" or "flirt to convert." It's the concept of going on a date with someone of differing beliefs so you can convert them.
Don't you just love it when Christians come up with things like this? Is it really evangelism when you have to manipulate to get your message across? Or perhaps that is Evangelism.
To see the wiki entry for yourself, go here, or read it below:
Missionary dating is a phrase used in a Christian context to describe when a person of one religion dates a person with differing beliefs for the purpose of changing that person's beliefs or religion.
Synonymous phrases include "dating for Jesus" or "flirt to convert". The concept of missionary dating is sometimes used to cover for or justify to one's self, family, or religious community, romantic interest in a non-Christian if the relationship might be frowned upon on otherwise.
The morality and appropriateness of Missionary Dating is a controversial subject among some Christians, though it is rarely discussed.
