Biblical dating advice

Is it wrong that I am disappointed that there is apparently no sex in heaven? Also, holding my gas in public was becoming inconvenient, glad I can just let go and let God. Running around naked and convincing my husband to do things seems ideal. Check out more from Nina Borum on her blog and follow her on Twitter!

But there are some things that Jesus doesn’t do like take out the trash, rub my feet and you know the whole sex thing. You will find a man that loves you just the way you are. That gym membership was cutting into my fast food budget anyway. That would be easy, except that I’ve kind of always wanted to be more like Eve. Have you ever heard some ridiculous Christian dating advice?

Worse, it has brought great dishonor to the name of Christ and to the witness of individuals and the church. For Christians, the Lord has given us his Word, and the Holy Spirit helps us to understand it.

We have brothers and sisters in Christ to hold us accountable and to help us apply the Word to our lives.

You are looking for a woman who will not squander your income or lean toward gossip.

You are looking for a woman who will submit and obey, for there is no other way for a marriage to honor God without following the strict Biblical principles that God has laid out for us in the Bible.

I’ve been set up with guys—even ones who know I’m a Christian—who expect me to go along with their lifestyle choices: sex, drugs, excessive drinking, and the rest.If you have grown up in a Christian home that believes in the Holy Bible, then most certainly, you have limited yourself to chaperoned dating until the age of 21.If you are truly saved, it is not until your 21st birthday, that the thought of dating someone without adult supervision would even enter your mind. If you are truly saved, you are looking for a woman who will serve you and who loves the Lord as much as you do.If you're a Christian, that's the biblical life you're called to. Just this once, I'm going to set out a basic framework for biblical dating so we all know what we're talking about — or at least so you know where I'm coming from.That's what I hope this column will be about — applying God's Word to the topic of dating, finding a spouse, and getting married. After this column, you have my word that I'll spend the next several months answering your questions (that is, when I have answers). I have to start by explaining the theological doctrine that drives the approach I want to outline (and advocate).
