SHOULD CHRISTIANS ENGAGE IN ONLINE DATING?
In a world that seems to accept wrongdoing as the way of living,
Christians must be resistant to this way of life. Some of the
wrongdoing that troubles our world today transpires over the internet: pornography, gossip, identity theft, money scams, and so on.
The concern here is online dating. It’s an internet activity that
brings people together. Some people find love; others get scammed out of money. There have even been situations where people were murdered after meeting their online date in person.
In other words, like anything else, online dating can have its problems. So, should Christians engage in it?
The Answer is in The Spiritual Voice
We must follow God’s plan for our lives. Otherwise we won’t find our true purpose for life; we won’t even be happy. So, to answer the question of whether or not Christians should engage in online dating – it depends.
If the Holy Spirit is telling you to engage in it, then follow the Spirit. The path is already set for you and your soul mate to find each other through this method. You’ll even be guided as to which website you should join since there are several.
Please note that if you feel led to join an online dating site that connects people for sexual purposes only, this isn’t God’s intention. God is about love, not one night stands. So make sure you’re being guided by God and not desperation or lust.
On the other hand, if you don’t hear or have a spiritual intuition to set up membership at a decent online dating website such as a Christian dating site, then follow your instinct. Doing so will never lead you in the wrong direction. It’s just happen that God could have for you to meet your soul mate another way.
So online dating for Christians … yes or no? Just wait and listen patiently for God’s wise, whispery voice and you’ll have your answer.
