Scott croft biblical dating audit engine content not updating
The question for us is whether that approach to dating and marriage gels with the biblical approach to life and love.It doesn’t, for at least three reasons: The first is that worries about settling reveal a selfishness approach to marriage that misunderstands the Bible’s idea of love.This is what people worried about settling don’t seem to get.They think joy in marriage is all about the original choice one makes about whom to marry, rather than how they nurture and build their marriage. Scott Croft served for several years as chairman of the elders at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.
If you have a biblical understanding of human nature, then you will realize that in one sense, everybody settles — even the people who think they are refusing to.Every person who decides to marry makes the decision to marry a sinner.That means you will marry someone who is at some level selfish, who has insecurities and an ego, who has annoying tendencies that you will only discover marriage because they will only be revealed in that intimate context.If your idea of attraction — whatever that is — dominates your pursuit of a spouse, consider this: Is your approach biblical?
The Bible calls us to reject the world’s approach to love and marriage.I can’t begin to tell you how many single believers I have spoken to and counseled who are trying to avoid settling, worried that they are settling, think it’s “wrong” to settle, etc.
