The cross, modern philosophy, and the arrival of the Internet have certainly changed things for Christians wanting to be married.
But what if there’s more to see in Isaac and Rebekah than meets the eye?
The data looks at our desires to be married, our levels of satisfaction in relationships, and the spiritual consequences of trends in our dating. Nearly two thirds of not-yet-married Christians express regret over previous relationships.
Crossway recently surveyed seven thousand readers about singleness and dating.
And the reality is most of us get it wrong at some point along the way. I dated too much (six serious relationships before I graduated from high school).The regret we carry often feels like it weighs more than we do, but that’s because we’re not meant to carry it around with us, and certainly not our own.As I have wrestled with my own regret, two verses in particular have renewed and revolutionized how I process my failures and mistakes in the past.One of the biggest mistakes Christian singles make is dating non-believers.Many singles get so desperate in their search for "the One" they compromise in this most crucial area of spiritual compatibility.
