i was having a talk with my friend, and i told him i like this girl but she's catholic and i'm not christian. i belive the whole bible, but not all the saints and stuff. he told me that a girl is more important than faith. and i disagreed, but now i'm not sure... what do you think?

Fait is more important. Nothing more ackward than your girlfriend/ wife to be of a different faith. Seriously, if your a Bible believer, then you would think that she is probably not right in the eyes of God. 
 
I don't know. I've never been in that situation before, so I can't relate. But the Bible is clear.

Faith is way more important. Girls come and go but God is forever.He'll never leave you or forsake you.

does she like you? if you and the girl talk on a regular basis, maybe you should tell her what you're feeling. honestly, she probably won't care that you're not religious, her main concern will probably just be if you believe in God.

yes i'm pretty sure she likes me she kind've makes it obvious. but i know a lot of people will ask why i don't belive the way they do and then i state why and they get ofended and next thing you know i wouldn't even be talking to her. we're not and a relationship but i like her and she likes me, so if i told her i would kind've sound like a creep since we're not in a relationship. would i not?
 
thanks everyone for replying:)

Faith is the basis of relationships, if you don't share it, chances are it won't work. 
 
I don't think you'll sound like a creep, you'll just sound like you openly like her.  If she thinks thats creepy then you guys are probably a little young to worry about that anyways :P

Oh Lord

I was wondering when I was going to run into this, better late then never. Let me give you all an ironic parellel. My current relationship, I am a conservative Christian, she is an absolute atheist. In short her behavior is about as healthy for me as cigs to lung cancer (no offense to smoker or those who have had experinece with lung cancer). But the extreme metaphor fits the bill exacly. MATURITY my friends is what counts in the realm of faith and Earthly love. Your maturity in self and in faith is what detirmines whether you sink or swim. Now as for the Catholic part, get to know the girl before you start making movies. If she is serious about her faith she'll say so. If she is not then she is not. If you feel mature enough to handle a relationship then by all means go for it.

I think that faith is far more important than a girl that you probably won't last 1 month with (no offense to the girls, y'all are the most special of all creations). This is why dating to me is so important, you will see why a little while of lust is incomparable to the companionship of God. However I know you should decide for yourself, give it a try if ya want, its not like you're marrying her.

I would say that faith is more important, especially at this time in your life, but that doesn't mean it couldn't work between you. One of my older brothers is a Christian (most of the family is) and he married an atheist. They are fantastic together, even though they don't agree in that department.

Whatever you love the most. It's really up to you. Not an easy choice.

why cant you choose both? my friend is lds and has a catholic boyfriend and they`re perfectly fine together and if someone makes a big deal about it they just kinda brush it off.
are you two actually in a relationship? or is this keeping you from asking her out? and you could try asking her if it would/does bother her
if you dont care what people think and if she doesnt care what people think then i dont see a problem
