There is plenty of stuff about God's will for his people, God wanting good things for you, and God's ultimate plan.
Nowhere, however, does it say that God picked out a spunky brunette whom he's waiting to spring on you at the right moment. When it comes to God, I'm pretty careful about saying what he does or doesn't do.
There are plenty of them, but let's focus on what I believe are the top five myths that make dating harder for Christian men.
Rather than directing the course of the relationship, God wants the couple to grow and learn how to make a commitment.
Once they've done that, God increases his sustaining presence.
There are things floating around that have little or nothing to do with the Bible.
Most are well intended and contain a nugget of truth. Dating is hard enough without sifting through all this erroneous information, so let's debunk some myths.
Though God won't do all the work for you, he'll be with you every step of the way.
The good news is that most men don't have a problem with this.
But the Bible does not promise that God will provide a loving relationship for you while you sit around and do nothing.
But, as in all things, it's best to ask for his guidance.
God will tell them if a relationship is right, and God will end it if it's not.
All they have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride.
Falling in love before you got married or engaged is a twentieth-century concept. In college, I had an older professor from Japan whose marriage had been arranged.
