Question: "Should a Christian use a Christian dating service to find a spouse?" Answer: The Bible doesn’t talk about dating services.Back then, families helped young women and men meet and become engaged and often chose their children’s mates for them.
In fact, it doesn’t even tell us how to “date” or “court,” or whatever term we use for the process we use to get to know a potential mate.
In the Bible times, dating did not exist in the same form that we see it today.
Warnings aside, though, many happy Christian marriages have come out of internet dating.
Professional matchmaking services are usually safer than internet dating, but are less popular, and don’t always have a very large pool of people to choose from.
Is it possible we are being too picky, looking for the fairy-tale prince or princess, and by doing so, limiting the possibilities of what God may know is best for us and which we have not yet considered?
Are we not being picky enough, forgetting that God calls all Christians to marry only other Christians (2 Corinthians ), or are we considering someone who is stuck in a serious, life-altering sin that could endanger the marriage?(Please note that Got Questions Ministries does not endorse any particular Christian or secular dating service site).One major downfall of internet dating is that you can never be sure who is being honest and who is pretending to be someone they’re not.Some of these people are trying to con the men and women they meet.Be careful about any personal details you share via online communication.We can put ourselves in a position to meet other Christians by looking for a church singles group.
