An idol is something that is held in higher esteem than God.Since an unbeliever doesn't believe in God, to him everything is an idol, including his relationship with you.I have received a few emails from Christians (and even one from a non-Christian) asking if it is okay for a Christian to date or marry an unbeliever.Usually, by the time the question is asked, the relationship has gone far enough that a negative answer is going to be difficult to accept, even if it is the right answer.
