Missionary Dating: When a single Christian dates a non Christian with the intention of converting them to Christianity, and possibly scoring a Christian spouse in the process.
Putting it frankly, missionary dating is a bad idea. But not everyone agrees with me. Tamara would like to see good looking girls date non Christian guys to save them from hell. I can see several problems with this.
There aren’t a lot of prominent Christian characters in Australian (fictional) TV. We don’t exactly have a lot of Seventh Heaven‘s or Touched By An Angel‘s. We don’t even have a Vicar of Dibley. But we do have Home and Away‘s Geoff Campbell. Played by Lincoln Lewis, he’s the sheltered Christian kid who’s been introduced to a world that he doesn’t quite understand. He struggles to maintain his faith as he is tempted by the two greatest lures for the Australian male – girls and footy. What does Geoff tell us about being a Christian in 21st century Australia?
