Hi, I've been a member for close to two months, there is nobody so far local to my area on here and i live in a major city within a major county, I commented on my profile that I only want to meet someone that is local to my area within a reasonable distance yet I get messages and a wink from out of state members, so I edited my profile and rewrote the comment in all caps so that it is more clear. I am not new to online dating exactly but new to the Christian ones, it really irks me to no end when I am going through the photos and I see so many people who have posted their pictures but they look far from Christian in my eyes, call me a perfectionist, not intentional but as someone who values my beliefs and is straightforward, devoted and upholds my role as a Christian woman, why would I want to do or be anything less than that? What would be the point of allowing myself to live a worldly life and at the same time claim that i am a Christian? That would be hypocrisy and not upholding my Christian values, then I think, wWJT? (what would Jesus think?) I find that people feel like they have to be somebody else, that showing themselves as "sexy", posing in a "sexual" way, showing "sexually appealing body parts or clothing" is the way to attract a person to meet/date, we are not a species of bird or animal that has methodical rites by fluffing our feathers, showing off by exhibiting behaviors that attract a partner for propagation purposes so why do these members insist on exhibiting photos with these types of things?? Women showing their cleavage or posing in a sexually provocative way, posing with another person in the same way, too revealing of clothing, showing off tattoos and shirtless men showing off their physique... Isn't that the biggest problem in society today, living worldly? Not living the Christian life the way "God" wants us too? Since when has it become "OK" to live "lukewarm?"
Revelation 3:15-16 "I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth."
This is just one reason we fall short of the Glory of God, we choose to live like a teeter totter, on the edge of falling off, but what side do you want to be on? What side should you be on? I am just putting it out there to serve as a reminder to everyone, me included, we must check ourselves from time to time to be sure we are consistently living the life of a "true Christian", the one God intended us to be..
