Christian Dating and Waiting on God

One of the most difficult things for Christian singles interested in dating is waiting on the Lord for that special soulmate. This is especially true as we see our single friends meet their dream date, get married and move on. Loneliness and anxiety starts to creep in as we wonder when God will bless us. Although King David did not have Christian dating in mind when he wrote Psalms 13, many single people waiting for a mate can certainly identify…

Masturbation and Christian Singles

 Let’s talk about the M word and Christian singles. Masturbation and Christian Singles. Male masturbation. Female masturbation. Adolescent masturbation. Chronic masturbation.   Christian Singles and Masturbation. Is it a sin to masturbate? Are you feeling awkward yet? Most pastors apparently are because they avoid the masturbation topic at all costs. This is a little ironic, to say the least, when survey after survey reveals a majority of married and single Christians of all different ages (guys and gals) masturbate, and…

Christian Single Men and Lust

All Christian single men battle lust of the flesh from time to time. In fact, let’s just make that ALL guys, whether they be single men or married men, Christian or non-Christian. One single man pal of mine said if his girlfriend ever knew his thoughts, she would never stop slapping him! Listen, men struggle with lust, and any single man who says otherwise is just lying out of fear, manipulative motives, embarrassment or a combination of the three. The…

Rebound Relationships and the Pain

Many singles seem to go from one rebound relationship to the next in search of that ultimate relationship. The only problem is that the vast majority of rebound relationships end as well, which makes daters feel worse then the previous relationship. As someone who worked in the Family Court system, I saw the sad effects of rebound relationships everyday. The Thinking Behind  Rebound Relationships The thinking behind rebound relationships goes like this: “Although my previous relationship failed, this one will…

Holiday Gifts-The Greatest Holiday Gift of All

Well, the holiday gift season is upon us once again. Oh Joy! Can you believe that in my area (New York) businesses had holiday gift displays with Christmas trees lit as early as the beginning of September? Unbelievable! Although poll after poll in the US, UK, Europe and Australia consistently show a substantial majority of people would like to see less spending on holiday gifts, each year folks spend more and and more on gifts. Holiday Gifts and Christian Singles…

Child Support Payments and Christian Single Parents

Receiving child support payments is a major worry for Christian single parents, who often struggle to keep their kids well fed and clothed. It’s no wonder then that custodial single parents rank collecting child support payments ahead of concerns like single parent dating with kids. Of course, when it comes to child support payments, these single parents are not alone. Skirting Child Support Payments: A Worldwide Problem According to ACES (The Association for Children for Enforcement of Support) only half…

20-Something Singles:How to Evangelize Millennials

As any 20-something Christian single could tell you, the vast majority of other 20-something singles do not attend church. Paradoxically, 20-somethings , or millennials as they are called today, are also one of the most receptive age groups to evangelize. How can both of these statements about 20-something singles be true? The answer is that many Christian churches are simply missing huge opportunities by not communicating the Gospel to 20-something singles in ways that make sense to them. In fact…

Romance Relationship Hope for Christian Singles

Spending New Years Eve minus a romance relationship usually spells loneliness and depression. I know many Christian singles reading this watched the Ball drop last night without a romance relationship in sight. Sigh. Under these circumstances it’s very easy to lull ourselves into a self-pity party, especially as we observe other couples enjoying their romance relationships. Romance Relationship Hope for the Future Last night as I watched the record crowd during the Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration, it dawned…

Christian Marriage Vows and Submission

Discussing Christian marriage vows can be one of the hardest parts of planning a wedding ceremony. A lot of Christian single engaged couples stumble over Christian marriage vows because of one simple word: submission. Christian Marriage Vows Controversy Many traditional Christian marriage vows, in an attempt to express what was thought to be the Bible’s teaching on wives submitting to their husbands, include one little phrase where the bride pledges to “love honor and obey” her mate. Today, most Christian…
