Searching For Love in the Wrong Places
Praise the Lord! Sisters, come on in and have a cup of tea and lets talk about...searching for love.
This was an email question: "I am a Christian who is waiting for a mate but many of the Christian men I meet or date at church "recovering homosexuals" or have shared that they have been molested. Do you think God wants me to date or marry such men?
1. God created love as a good thing but because of sin the Enemy has twisted what
God meant for good into something perverted. As a Christian waiting for the Lord means you are waiting for his direction in your life. It is important to pray, read and stay in the presence of God so you can hear his voice.
Here are a few love scriptures :
'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' "This is the great and foremost commandment. "And a second is like it, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets." ( Matthew 22:37-40)
"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." ( John 13:34-35)
2. Christian love is different from love leading to marriage. "Dating" in church--like the world? I do not understand your concept. My church welcomes courtship which leads to a lifelong commitment of marriage. If God told you to wait. WAIT. You need to explain "recovering." Are these men now SAVED? Have they attended a class or seen a Christian counselor? Have they been delivered from their sin? How do you know beside the men telling you?
According to Wikipedia, Perversion is a concept describing those types of human behavior that are a serious deviation from what is considered to be orthodox or normal. Although it can refer to varying forms of deviation, it is most often used to describe sexual behaviors that are seen by the majority as abnormal, repulsive or obsessive. Perversion differs from deviant behavior, since the latter refers to a recognized violation of social rules or norms. It is often considered derogatory and in psychological literature the term paraphilia is now used instead, though this term is controversial.
 As a psychological term it was originally applied especially frequently to bisexual and homosexual behavior.The verb pervert is less narrow in reference than the related nouns, and may be used with no sexual connotations. It is used in English law for the crime of perverting the course of justice which is a common law offence. The noun sometimes occurs in abbreviated slang form as "perv" and used as a verb meaning "to act like a pervert", and the adjective "pervy" also occurs. All are often, but not exclusively, used non-seriously.
3. The Lord will tell you the right person to marry but you are not to be unevenly yoked. Do you have the personality to deal with a person who has such a pass or may have intimacy issues. Ask the Lord to reveal to you if that person has been delivered.
God will not encourage you to marry a mission project. He may want you to be a friend and help that person but a broken vessel has no space for another person, you may fall through the cracks in that relationship.
