Invest time reading God’s Word and ask Him to help you trust Him more in this area of your life. By going online, you will have many more potential options.
No longer are you just limited to the tiny pool of people you personally know, but you now have access to people all over the country and sometimes even the world.
I’ve had multiple conversations and read many blogs and articles about online dating.I’ve decided to boil all of that information down into this one teeny-tiny blog post.Let me start by sharing my personal online dating “status” with you. I want to trust wholeheartedly that God will guide me in the direction He wants me to go through His Word and the wise people around me.I don’t want to try and take control or make something happen on my own. However, I don’t see anything in the Bible forbidding online dating. When it comes to online dating, you have to weigh your own pros and cons with the Bible as your guide.Online dating sites are well known for matching guys and girls up according to personality, religion, and preferences, etc.
Many believe that this helps narrow down the options and gives a better chance of relationship success.While some Christian singles believe that looking for love online is not in accordance with the teachings of Christ, others argue that online dating is just another tool God uses in order to join two people. First of all, the Bible doesn’t tell us how to meet and date our future spouses, but speaks of the importance of choosing the right partner:‘’Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers.For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? ’’ (2 Corinthians )Christians singles should never settle for a partner who is a non-believer, or who agrees to go to church on some occasions.If you’ve ever thought about using online dating, I highly encourage you to think, pray, and weigh the pros and cons before ever getting online.Don’t do it blindly or in a hurry because your friends encourage you to do it. If you’re motivated to start clicking because you’re wrestling with fear you will never get married, I’d encourage you to wait. I’ve heard it said that online dating really helps narrow down the singles who are serious about marriage from the ones who aren’t.Some godly friends of mine love online dating to pieces, and some godly friends are strongly opposed to it.
