It was strange to me that this guy knew how my day at work yesterday had gone, and yet I didn’t know if his eyes crinkled up when he smiled or if he gestured a lot when he talked.
Online dating is one of those subjects that Christians enjoy debating.In one camp, there are some who believe looking for love online betrays a lack of faith in God’s provision of a spouse.They point to their neighbor/sister/uncle/friend that met his/her spouse online and is enjoying a healthy, happy marriage. Sometimes things are less about what we do than about the heart we do it with.More often than not, the Bible offers general principles over specifics.For some in the Boundless community, this may lead them to trust God to bring a spouse through church, work, or a blind date set up through mutual friends.
For others, it may involve signing up to an online dating site and seeing if God uses that.
In their view, the seemingly endless lists of online profiles creates a superficial consumer mentality that undermines the sacrificial nature of Christ-centered love.
The other side counters that online dating is merely a tool God can use to bring two people together – users don’t place their faith in the matchmaking site, but in the Lord. Like many things, online dating isn’t inherently evil or good.
My husband and I know of various other Christian couples who met online and are now married.
Common to all of us was that we transitioned from the online world to the “real world” as soon as we could.
We don't get to see how Abraham and Sarah got together but we do see a good bit of their marriage.
