Questions to ask while dating christian

If I can get that 24-year-old single guy with a 38-year-old married man, then I have high hopes for how that 24-year-old will see, understand, and desire marriage.But then on top of that I think what you celebrate and how you celebrate is important.If the relationship is outpacing knowledge of character, reputation, and knowledge of godliness, then that is way too quick.

I am going to be real cautious about saying there is such a thing as “too fast.” What I would rather ask is this: What’s driving the speed?

If mere physical attraction or some kind of emotive, frilly, this-is-the-one weirdness is driving the speed, then, yes.

But in a day when so much nominalism passes for authentic maturity, give us a few simple marks of spiritual growth that a man or woman should be looking for in a potential spouse.

I think what you are looking for is seriousness about growth in the person’s faith.

Is there such a thing as “too fast” in Christian dating?

How do you know if a dating relationship is moving too quickly emotionally, or too quickly toward marriage?

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.

So, in that way, I’m encouraged by what technology has to offer.
