Dating advice for christian men
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.

Male leadership wasn’t the result of the Fall, but of creation (as Genesis implies and Paul makes clear in 1 Timothy 2). Clean your act up today, not "when" The lie is that once you find the right girl, all your problems will go away—you just need the right motivation, right?

Joshua 1:8 says, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it.” Every man needs to realize that he will only be worth following if he follows God.If you aspire to be a godly husband or wife someday, what have you done and what are you doing to prepare for that ministry?Second, are you at a place in your life at which you are ready and able to marry?Other times, guys find out I’m a Christian and automatically assume I’m uptight and judgmental.The stereotypes get old.” Of course, the problems don’t disappear when Christians choose to date only other Christians.
