Where to Find A date WHERE DO I FIND A DATE?

computerdateSO, WHAT ABOUT COMPUTER DATING? A PERSONAL AD WITH YOUR PICTURE ON IT…CAN’T GO WRONG………

WELL……..christiansingles

YOU GOT THE CHURCH OF CHRIST SINGLES.COM, CHURCHES-OFCHRIST-SINGLES.NET, CHRISTIAN MINGLE, E- HARMONY, MATCH.COM, FISH IN A BARREL AND JANITOR IN A DRUM…………….

Silbano Garcia, Church of Christ minister and the founder of churches-of-christ.org states that computer dating can be very safe and deliberate and it enables you to meet people you would not have met otherwise. Many good marriages have happened because of each of the (legitimate) services above. He recommends you ask lots of questions, ask the church where the person attends for personal refernces and visit to go to church. Hazards include…they lied….they don’t look like that…while they attend church, they may not be seeking Jesus……..Be careful!

The Dating Game (Really?) Part 1

dating-game-01

The Dating Game! Really? You remember the cheesy host, the guest single and the 3 suitors. The bachelor asked each bachlorette (or vise versa) questions and chose a date sight unseen…….Incidently both Billy Crystal and Jay Leno were guests early in their careers…NOBODY would date this way would they?

You might be surprised by the christian dating show ************where the congregation helps the single find a mate. Goodness! What do you think about that. Would you want your preacher or the sister on row 4 to set you up?

Bible

What does the BIBLE say about dating? hmmmmmm….strangely silent………..

adam and eve

Now, in the beginning God saw that it wasn’t good for man to be alone so he produced Eve and Adam was ….overwhelmed….I think he said, “Kazinga!” Do you wonder if He might help in your search for a mate?

Jacob, Rachel and Leah

Now, we know that Abraham sent his servant to find a wife for his son Isaac (Rebekkah). Would you want your parents to choose your spouse? Still happens in many countries……..low divorce rate too.

Jacob chose his own wife. He was in love with Rachel. But, he got more than he bargained for. You remember that he got TWO wives and 2 additional mistresses for only 14 years of hard labor.

david-and-bathsheba

Unfortunately, David’s method of finding women most resemble the modern times. He laid out of work, was a peeping Tom, lured and seduced a married woman and tried to get off scott free…..Oh yeah! And he was already married and had neglected at least one wife….

Song of Solomon

Ah…but his son Soloman was the romantic. Shoulda been. With 700 wives and 300 porcupines, he should have known women. I like where he told her she was pretty because her teeth matched……………..

Of course, we can go to 1 Corinthians 7 for lots of info on marriage, divorce, etc. If you are burning with temptation, get married….So, why isn’t it that easy?
