Christian dating is he the one
We’ve been through a lot together–hard things that I wouldn’t have made it through if he wasn’t by my side.
The dilemma I am having is do I overlook the bad in him and accept him or should I move on with my life?
The problem of course is that as a single Christian man, not only are you going to marry a sinner, but are a sinner as well.
It’s something that the person who is inquiring, needs to deal with in a very intentional and mature manner.If there is always that possibility, then you must ask yourself whether this person has the qualities you will need in a husband. Ask yourself these questions: How strong is his relationship with Jesus Christ? How passionate is he about reading God’s Word, prayer, and fellowship with other believers in a biblically solid church? However, in Ephesians Paul compares a husband’s role toward his wife with that of Christ’s role toward His Bride, the Church, “Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, the she might be holy and without blemish,” (Ephesians -27, emphasis mine).Christ’s role and a husband’s role do differ because only Christ alone can truly cleanse us.And if he is not ready to be a husband, dating him could only have a sorrowful outcome.Marriage is a covenantal bond between a man and a woman where there is dependence—to a certain extent.
