podcast and answered ten questions on singleness and dating.We get a lot of questions from young Christian men and women who are “not yet married.” Their season of life awakens many desires and hopes, uncertainties and insecurities, and tricky pastoral questions.I just want to say THANK YOU very much for putting this seminar together.I can say for everyone that we all had a great time and learn alot about ourselves and the opposite sex. Best, Jade" - Our time with Sophia was incredibly insightful for me, and I've been spending a lot of time thinking about what I want out of life. In fact, asking myself 'why do I want that' has been an interesting question.
"My husband and I came to this retreat looking for a solution for our problems.And so I think the church really serves and helps Christian singles consider marriage and consider dating.Within the covenant community of faith, there should be those around a person that can speak of their reputation and whether they are serious about growing in the Lord and putting sin to death in their life. Is there seriousness in this person to grow in their relationship and understanding with the Lord?Because what I have tragically found is that Christian singles hit an area of desperation, particularly young women, and they will go: “Yeah, he is a Christian, he comes to church.” And really what they’re saying is this guy comes to church a couple of times a month, but outside of attending a service, he doesn’t have a real seriousness about growing in his understanding of the Lord, growing in his understanding of the Bible, being a prayerful person, no vivication or mortification that can be spotted, and no one who really knows them enough to speak to the growth in their character.Now practically speaking, this means singles are seeking out people to speak into their lives.I’d had enough of being alone and thinking that I wasn’t good enough for women.I’d see other guys with a beautiful girlfriend or wife on their arm and wonder, I knew that I was a good guy and that I deserved better, but hot women just didn’t seem to value the traits that I had to offer.When I met her 2 weeks ago, I was sure that I was ready to find the right person and get married. If my life's goal is to travel and have a life of adventure, why do I need anyone else at all?I can do that for myself, and it is probably easier to do by myself anyway.It was a crappy stage of life to go through as a guy.Eventually, I got to a point where I was sick and tired of missing out on sex, love and relationships with beautiful women.
