True Love Waits!

A4P Guest: I’m a 36 year-old woman and I’ve been dating a man (38 years old) for a couple years now. We both are born again Christians. This year, I was expecting him to propose to me but he doesn’t even talk about marriage at all. I told him in several occasions how much I desire to get married. But he usually changes the subject and avoids it totally. What do you advise me to do?

Characters of a Godly Christian Man

A4P Guest: “Missy, if you were single today, what would be the first three main characters you would be looking in a man?”
 
A4P: Wow! I love this question! Do you know why?
 
Well, I think I already told you this but one of the things I was looking for in a man when I was single, young and “st- -d” was “six-pack abs”, LOL! I know that is messed up!

Who Needs Help Here Is You

A4P Guest: I’m a 22 year old woman and the man I’m seeing is 27 years old. We met in our church’s yearly young adults’ retreat and it’s been a year now since we’ve been dating officially. I love him very much but he flirts with every girl in our church. I told him to stop once and I let it go and chose to pray. He cheated on me once and I forgave him. A couple weeks ago, I found something on his phone and I asked him about it. He confessed that he had cheated on me again. Continue reading Who Needs Help Here Is You

“Born-again Christian Girls Don’t Attract Me Much”

A4P Guest: I am 23 years old, fourth year university student. I haven’t dated any girl so far and I think I know the reason. Well, I am a born-again Christian but I always find myself attracted to girls who are not born-again Christians. Frankly, I don’t find born-again Christian girls that much attractive. You know how the saying goes, “A girl who makes you feel relaxed is the girl you need to pursue.” Well, I don’t relax around Christian girls that much but whenever I’m around girls who are not born-again Christians, I see that spark of attraction. What do I need to do? I know what the Bible says about being yoked with unbelievers but I don’t know what to do with my feeling.

“I’m interested in a guy”

A4P Guest: Hi Missy, I know this is the weirdest question you’ve probably ever come across but I’m going to ask it anyways. So here we go! So, I’m very interested in a guy in our Bible study. Missy, I’m literally thinking about him 24/7.

A4P: There is nothing weird about that.

A4P Guest: I’m not done. The guy is not interested in me. Talk about falling in love, I’m dying! What do I need to do?

A4P: Phew! That is tough!

(While I’m thinking how to address her question, let me hear how you advise this girl. It would be great if I read especially from those of you, young men, who might be “the guy” a girl imight be thinking about 24/7. Please, let me say this again, PLEASE, don’t advise the girl to ask the guy for a date or marriage, backing up your answer by Ruth’s story. Ruth’s story has nothing to do with a girl asking a man to date or marry her, but everything to do with the redemption work of Christ.) ///

Interracial Relationship

A4P Guest: I’m 26 years old and I’m from Ethiopia, residing here in the US. I’m dating a white Christian man. He proposed to me two weeks ago and we’re thinking of getting married soon. But unfortunately both of my parents are against it because of his race. Is interracial marriage against the word of God? 
 
A4P: Before I say anything, let me say this: Congratulations!  You must be so excited! I’m happy for you!

Sex Should Be An Okay Thing

A4P Guest: I have a quick question. So, my girlfriend is an Ethiopian girl. I love her very much and she loves me too. So, my question is this: What’s wrong with having sex before marriage? I don’t think we need to sanctify our flesh here on earth since the Bible says, “flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 15:50) and “The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing,” (John 6:63). So, as long as my girlfriend and I keep our soul and spirit holy, sex should be an okay thing since it is done on the flesh. So, can you give me few more verses to go over with my girlfriend since she is struggling to accept this truth?
