Is it a sin for a Christian woman to be in a relationship with a man 4 years younger than her
I see no sin in that. Once he's has reach to the age of maturity where he can be legally married by the law. Love have no boundaries sometimes people love older and some younger. We cannot really have much controll with who or whom we fall in love with. Just pray about it make sure it's God's will and court well and make sure it's truly love okay.
Not at all, unless maybe the lady in question is only 16 or 17 years old, then it could be a bit iffy. Otherwise, why would it be wrong?
Absolutely not. You can take that younger man and enjoy the rest of your life in total fulfillment. Thank you. Go in peace. May your heart desires be fulfilled with this younger man and remember to be love be peace be free for this is who you are and every human being living on the earth now and into the future to the core of their being.
If both are consenting adults, age does not matter, Christian or not.
Love is what matters, and a full stomach.
The issue is not age but relationship.What is the purpose of the relationship,to serve self or God? If it is to serve your own interests,then this teaching from Jesus applies:
Luke 14:25-27 (New King James Version)
25 Now great multitudes went with Him. And He turned and said to them, 26 “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, WIFE and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. 27 And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.
TRANSLATION:We must love Jesus so much that we will sacrifice our own lives to serve Him and Him alone.
No. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 6:14 "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?" It says nothing about age. Go forward and be happy!
Age is just a number, so it has no bearing on anything. As long as it doesn't cross into something illegal, such as an adult having a relationship with a minor, it is not a sin. Spiritual maturity and beliefs of both needs to be considered. How can two walk together if they don't agree?
no thats a silly thought.why would age matter when ts only 4 years?
I am a Christian man... and my wife is four years older than me. I sure hope it's not a sin! A little too late now!
No, age is definitely not an issue to be with someone if you really love them and are committed totally to the relationship.
Age only becomes an issue when someone is trolling for dates among minors...
But you are asking about "Sin" which is about God's Laws.
So then by saying "in a Relationship" you are side stepping the key issue which is Marriage.
If that "Relationship" you are speaking of, is categorized by Sex outside of marriage then it is called by other Sinfull terms like: "Fornication", "Adultery", "Whoredom" or "Harlotry" depending on the circumstances that are involved.
I cant say I have ever seen an age requirement in the bible. If it is in there I would be surprised! The Bible being the Christian's last say on any subject, I can only determine no! The difference of four years should not matter. If you want to get into technicalities it can be a sin to break a law of the government. That being said, if the woman was 14 and the young man is 18 this would be considered a crime in most states. In this is the case, it "could" be considered a sin. I personally believe that the circumstances and the motive of the two young people's hearts make all the difference in this last scenario! Hope this helps!
Let's make sure that what we say is supported by scripture.
Definitely not. As long as both are pursuing Jesus individually, there is no sinful action involved. If they become sexually active with one another, then there is another story. God knows we need community, and it comes in many forms.
Age is not the issue. Are they having sex? It doesn't matter if he is 4 years younger or 40 years younger. If they are not married, it is a sin. I'm not judging. This is against God's will for all Christians.

What do you think about a younger woman dating an older man? (or vice versa)I've been dating a man that's 30 and I'm 23. We get a lot of jokes about it but there are also those who are against it simply because of our age difference. Do you think this is justified or does age really matter?
