Christian women dating online

Both husband and wife are engaged in constant self denial as they live out the beauty of the Christian marriage.Jesus said no one can be his disciple unless they take up their cross and follow him. If you know what you are looking for the way I have tried to describe it, I would think you could rule out a lot of losers by using the Internet.

According to Match.com, 1 in 5 relationships begin online. It could be your worst nightmare or a dream come true.

Choosing to date online means navigating a world full of predators, knuckleheads, and potential marriage partners.

I think it is at the Desiring God website, 50 questions that couples should ask.

The Christian man or woman who wants to marry a follower of Jesus must look for a spouse who has learned what it is to die to self in allegiance to Jesus.

A mature believer will want his or her spouse not just to profess some kind of creed or be willing to go to church.
