Christian views of dating
The key will be to lean on other Christians who know you best, love you most, and have a proven record of telling you when you are making a mistake or wandering away from God’s will for you.
Today more than ever before, we’re faced with a never-ending buffet of opinions and advice that has something to say about everything and yet lets us choose the answer we want.
There's no doubt in our minds that God, not our dating site, was our ultimate matchmaker.
Boundless has even joined forces with online dating service Christian to help connect marriage-minded Christian singles and provide them with Bible-based relationship advice. What if a single man or woman signs up to Christian and meets someone? You can't stay online forever, so how does a potential couple make the jump from the virtual world to the "real world"?
To help answer this question, I'm going to share some tips from one of my female colleagues.
He captures our into his goal and plan for our life: to make disciples who love him with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength. Will we trust him, even when we want something else for ourselves?
If our heart is not there — if our soul is not already safe through faith, if our mind is distracted and focused on other, lesser things, if our best strength is being spent on the things of this world — jobs, sports, shopping, entertainment, relationships, and on God — we simply will not date well. Listen to Jesus, and “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” Seek him first (Matthew ), and dating will be added according to his perfect plan and timing. It’s not the first rule, but I have found that it is a “golden rule” that most often makes the difference between healthy and unhealthy Christian dating relationships.
