They tend to involve the sharing of many aspects of each other's daily lives and routines.In other words, they tend to involve much of the type of intimacy and companionship involved in — and meant for — marriage.So is the trend toward intimate friendships between single men and women a good thing? If you haven't read my previous articles on biblical dating, you'll be helped in thinking through this issue by reading "Biblical Dating: How It's Different From Modern Dating." Based on some of the principles found there, let me offer a couple of practical reasons why I believe such friendships to be generally unwise, and then I'll suggest a positive role for friendship among singles in the Christian community.
Close friendships by their very nature tend to involve extensive time talking and hanging out one-on-one.
They tend to involve a deep knowledge of the other person's hopes, desires and personality.
However, many Christians can't find their soul mate in church, and many singles are simply too busy to maintain an active social life.
This is why we want to help unmarried Christians to meet other Christian singles — for a serious relationship, but also for fellowship and spiritual growth.
First Thessalonians 4:1-8 admonishes us not to wrong or "defraud" our brother or sister by implying a marital level of commitment (through sexual involvement) when it does not exist.
As I've discussed before, a broad (but sound) implication of this passage is that "defrauding" could include inappropriate emotional — as well as physical — intimacy.Browse our personals to meet new and interesting people devoted to being Christian.Whether you're interested in matchmaking, chat or penpals, join now for free and start meeting Christian singles!Whether you’re looking for love locally or internationally, we are committed to helping you find the perfect match, no matter where in the world they may be.We successfully bring together Christian singles worldwide and have seen many happy men and women meet their soul mates on Christian Cupid.
