Christian Matchmaker, Make Me a Match, and Soon

Friends tell me I’m a virtual Christian matchmaker service. No, I don’t offer the kind of Christian matchmaker services they have on the internet (although we do review them here). What I do is simply introduce Christian singles to one another in nonchalant ways. Here’s an example of what I do: “Susie, this is Johnny. Did I tell you that he lives right in your dorm, and plays the same instrument you do?” The rest usually takes care of itself.…

Sex Life of Christian Singles

John is a thirty-something Christian single whose sex life is a real mess! After just promising God through tears that he would clean up his sex life, and not have sex again with his Christian girlfriend, he ended up in the sack this past Saturday night for the umpteenth time. John is now depressed over his lack of sexual purity. He also knows his sex life is out of control, but doesn’t know where to turn. He is afraid others…

Keeping Perspective as Christian Singles

Dear Brothers and Sisters: Since I usually write at least 3 Christian Singles articles a week, some of you may be wondering if I dropped off the face of the Earth. I haven’t. However, I was hospitalized with what doctors feared may have been liver cancer. I thank Jesus for having mercy on me, and for helping me regain perspective on what’s really important in life. Thought: As a single Christian seeking your soulmate, is your perspective Christ-centered or self-centered?…

An Online Christian Dating Wedding

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban got married this past weekend, but I chose to go to a best friend’s wedding instead. Margaret met Tom, her husband, through one of the online Christian dating sites we list on this site, and had a two year long distance dating relationship before tying the knot. It was the most unlikely of circumstances that these Christian singles even crossed paths online, but our God has a way of doing things like that. As I watched the…
