Dating a jewish person
If you are dating someone who doesn’t have a personal relationship with Christ, you are playing with fire.

Do you depend on Him to meet your needs of love and security?
If you can’t stand the person but have a great physical relationship, rethink the relationship. If one person is uncomfortable with any type of physical expression, don’t do it. Don’t push a date to do anything that makes him/her feel uncomfortable.

He has the support of all her friends who are not Jewish. My wife says that if we are not careful we will lose him as a son, and that I should go easy on my remarks and actions. Some ideas: 1) Get them to discuss the topic of Jesus. It's a result of years of killing it on the bar mitzvah, camp, and college circuits. Worried about your potentially awkward upcoming work dinner? Seriously, there was never a better summer on the planet than Lake Year '07 with my 36 best friends. And if you want to make jokes about how Jews are cheap, (1) I'm going to assume you're kind of an asshat who laughs at all kinds of rude things and (2) you're not the kind of person I want to date anyway.9.
