Christian Mingle Movie – Woman Fakes Faith To Get Spouse – Another Depressing Christian Message that Shames Single Women Who Want Marriage, Tells Single Women They Should Only Find All Contentment in Jesus, Jesus is Their Boyfriend

Christian Mingle Movie – Woman Fakes Faith To Get Spouse – Another Depressing Christian Message that Shames Single Women Who Want Marriage, Tells Single Women They Should Only Find All Contentment in Jesus, Jesus is Their Boyfriend

This woman “fakes faith” to get a Christian spouse? I had sincere faith for many years, and it didn’t get me a spouse, Christian or no (though I was engaged at one time). What a lame concept for a movie.

Just based off the headline, this sounds kind of insensitive. And as I’ve not actually seen the movie but have only read some reviews, etc, it’s possible I’ve gotten some things wrong. If my understanding is correct, however….

“Christians Are Following Secular Trends in Premarital Sex, Cohabitation Outside of Marriage, Says Dating Site Survey”

You don’t say! *feigned shock*

Not only are many Christians no different from Non Christians in the divorce, shacking up, and pre-marital sex departments, but many Christians today are telling the wider Christian culture to stop preaching about sexual purity and virginity, while preachers are admitting that they don’t want to preach about or against sexual sin, since it may offend or hurt the feelings of folks in the pews, some of whom have engaged in sexual sin.

Here is a long excerpt (if you want the rest, you can you the link above):

    A new study on Christian attitudes toward dating and marriage reveals a broad acceptance for cohabitation, premarital sex and a rejection of traditional gender roles. Experts believe that many Christians are following cultural trends over scripture when it comes to sex and marriage.

    “Christians are perhaps more influenced by the culture than they are by the teachings of scripture or the church,” Peter Sprigg, senior fellow for policy studies at the Family Research Council, told The Christian Post in an interview on Friday.

    According to the “2014 State of Dating in America” report published by Christian Mingle and JDate, 61 percent of Christians said they would have sex before marriage.

    Fifty-six percent said that it’s appropriate to move in with someone after dating for a time between six months and two years.

    Fifty-Nine percent said it doesn’t matter who the primary breadwinner of the family is.

    And 34 percent responded that while it would be nice to marry someone of the same faith, it’s not required.

    Interpreting this data, Sprigg shared his warning to Christians about dating sites. “Those who are active, committed Christians who believe in biblical values need to be cautious in using sites like Christian Mingle and not assume that others on the site share their values.”

    Rachel Sussmann, a licensed psychotherapist and relationship expert, agreed with Sprigg that even those who consider themselves strong Christians make unbiblical decisions about sex.

    “Oftentimes couples find this as something personal between the two of them,” Sussman explained. “Even if the church frowns on this behavior, they take it upon themselves to make an educated decision between the two of them.”

    Sussmann paraphrased a common expression she hears from religious patients: “I practice what the church teaches me, but this is something personal between me and my partner.” The therapist commented that, in many ways, churches are “fighting an uphill battle because this is nature.”

    According to Sprigg, “there may be a weakness on the part of churches” that explains the gap between sexual behavior and biblical standards. He described “a vicious circle,” where a pastor welcomes people regardless of their past sins, and then fails to preach biblical morality due to a fear of being considered too harsh.

    “I would encourage pastors to speak bluntly and boldly about sexuality and a biblical view of sexuality and marriage,” Sprigg declared. He urged religious leaders to “not shy away from challenging the values of the culture.”

    SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — A San Jose woman bilked out of $500,000 by a Nigerian scam artist on a dating website luckily recovered $200,000 from a bank in Turkey, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office.

    The case of the 66-year-old woman conned out of her money through a meeting on ChristianMingle.com should serve as a warning about fraud schemes on international dating sites, Deputy District Attorney Cherie Bourland said.

    “You get the love drug in you and you end up getting duped,” Bourland said.

    The victim, a divorcee, joined ChristianMingle and befriended a Nigerian man who falsely claimed to be “David Holmes,” an Irish citizen working on a Scottish oilrig, Bourland said.

Creepizoids Weirdos and Perverts on Dating Sites

Creepizoids Weirdos and Perverts on Dating Sites

I saw this on (Link): Single Steve’s blog – he had an unfortunate experience with eHarmony.

Well, who hasn’t, other than that one anecdotal story you always hear from your married friends who tell you,
“Oh cheer up, I’m sure you’ll meet a great guy! My friend Bertha met her husband Ralph on eHarmony! Have you thought of eHarmony!?”

Here’s the comment on Single Steve’s blog, by Amanda:

    Amanda January 26, 2011 at 4:49 pm

I met the urinator on eHarmony.

They should have that as one of their levels of compatibility. Do you enjoy being peed on?

They should also have the question Do you enjoy people with no personality? During 99% I would have rather been at work.

That’s right, when you join dating sites, you do meet weirdos like “the urinator.”

I met a few on dating sites. (Other types of weirdos that is, not specifically urinators.)

You married people out there need to remember that dating sites are not a magical solution to getting dates or a spouse. There are weirdos and perverts on Yahoo! Personals, Plenty of Fish, eHarmony, Match, and rapists on Christian Mingle.

Some of the men who say they are Christian on those sites behave like no such thing.

I’ve had “Christian” men contact me on dating sites who ask for sex up front, or list sexual preferences up front, make crude jokes, or else have vulgar comments or sexual jokes on their profiles.

Clue time: if you would not state your sexual preferences the first time you meet a woman – say you walk up to her at a bar, or it’s a blind date you were set up with – you would NOT mention sex on a first date. Why the hell would you think it’s proper or appropriate to do this on a dating site profile, or the first 2 or 3 exchanges on a dating site? It is not.
