Warnings aside, though, many happy Christian marriages have come out of internet dating.Professional matchmaking services are usually safer than internet dating, but are less popular, and don’t always have a very large pool of people to choose from.For these people, it may be wise to consider other methods.Some of the modern methods of finding a mate include internet or online dating, professional matchmaking services, and speed dating.Question: "Should a Christian use a Christian dating service to find a spouse?" Answer: The Bible doesn’t talk about dating services.
It can be difficult to meet single Christian men and women, especially if most of our friends have already married.
Some singles don’t bother to look for a spouse, believing God will bring the person to them, while others are forever on a search for one, fearing they may miss him or her.
There should be a balance, as we remember that God is perfectly loving (Ephesians ; 1 John -18) and perfectly sovereign over every situation, desire, and need (Psalm 1; Romans -39).
Is it possible we are being too picky, looking for the fairy-tale prince or princess, and by doing so, limiting the possibilities of what God may know is best for us and which we have not yet considered?
Are we not being picky enough, forgetting that God calls all Christians to marry only other Christians (2 Corinthians ), or are we considering someone who is stuck in a serious, life-altering sin that could endanger the marriage?
