Christian dating tips for girls

Even some who were married concluded that it was more spiritual to abstain from sexual relations in marriage.

When Paul says, “It is good for a man not to touch a woman” (7:1), he is using the word “touch” as a figure of speech that refers to the physical relationship in marriage as representing marriage as a whole.

Thus, he means, “It is good to remain single.” He restates the same idea in 7:7-9, and discusses it at length in -40.

A story is told of a woman approaching 35 without a husband.

If you sense God’s call to be a missionary to a part of the world where you may likely suffer persecution or severe hardship for the sake of the gospel, you should consider remaining single.

Many Christians put pressure on singles, especially those getting along in years, to get married.

Sometimes we communicate an unbiblical attitude: “I wonder what’s wrong with him (or her) that he’s never married? Paul mentions at least two advantages for the person who is gifted to remain single.

This advice applies to every Christian, single or married, of course. Since the singles among us have had to listen to me talk about the family for the past couple of months, I thought we owed them a message that addresses many of their more direct concerns.
