What You Should Know Before Dating A Christian Woman, According To The Bible

christian woman love bible - What You Should Know Before Dating A Christian Woman, According To The Bible

It certainly won’t be easy.

There are two kinds of people in this world that can be pretty difficult to fall in love with: criminals and Christians. Weird combination right? I’m sure criminals being on that list makes perfect sense to you.

After all, they’re people who committed crimes. It seems like the only other person that could really understand why would be another criminal. But why Christians?

Christians aren’t bad people. They’re taught to be nice and to love everyone and they’re all about spreading God’s word.

That sounds like the perfect person to fall in love with. But the problem with falling for a Christian is while it might seem nice, it might actually be a lot of trouble.

I’m going to specifically talk about men falling for a Christian woman here.

If you happen to be a woman who’s fallen in love with a Christian woman, you’ve …

does god exist thomas aquinas apologist - 45 Thomas Aquinas Quotes & The 5 Ways He Proved God Exists

Simply the most influential philosopher in the Catholic world.

Does God exist? Lots of people wonder if God is real, including Thomas Aquinas. He knew that it was hard to imagine a supreme being out in the universe without seeing evidence of his work here on Earth.

Using Natural Law, Aquinas developed five ways to prove the existence of God, and people still lean on his process to this day.

When looking for a way to prove the existence of God, people often start with themselves.

It’s normal to ask if God is real and then to wonder who He is and why He does things in a certain way?

If God exists, and His purpose is connected with planet Earth, then where is He now and why does he allow bad things to happen?

These questions and arguments in favor of or against the existence of God have led to the practice of Christian and Catholic …

12 Bible Verses For Christians Who Believe In The Bible & Science

bible quotes faith god science - 12 Bible Verses For Christians Who Believe In The Bible & Science

Lord give us the strength to believe in what we cannot see!

Have you lost your faith in God? There are many challenges to faith: world events, science vs. the Bible, and bad things happen to good people… the list goes on and on.

The word of God speaks to believers about losing their faith and encourages Christians to stand strong when doubt starts to overtake belief.

Science wants evidence to prove belief, and that’s why you have a theory before you can say something is a law. A hypothesis tests the theory, which has to be repeatable and under a controlled environment. But, who controls God?

It’s hard to put him in a box and expect him to act the same with every person in a timely fashion. This is one of the clashes between science and the concept of faith as described in the Bible.

The world of …

5 Best Bible Quotes On Love & Commitment

commitment bible quote scripture - 5 Best Bible Quotes On Love & Commitment

I do, do I?

The Bible encourages faithfulness. All of the scripture verses relate to commitment and reference a relationship to God or growing stronger in your faith with God to help you live out your life’s purpose.

What is commitment?

Dictionary.com defines commitment as an engagement or obligation that restricts freedom of action. It is essentially calling commitment a limitation.

But I think there is more to it than that. I think that what we can take away is that what we need to commit to something wholeheartedly is faith.

Perhaps not faith in God, but faith in our choices, faith in our partners and faith in ourselves.

No one is going to be able to trust in you until you trust in yourself.

Why then, is it sometimes easier to trust in our ability to stand alone than it is to trust our ability to stand in union …

7 Bible Verses That Celebrate Love, Feminism & Gender Equality

bible feminism - 7 Bible Verses That Celebrate Love, Feminism & Gender Equality

Girl power (in Christ)

What does the Bible have to say about women and gender equality? There are lots of great women found in the Bible, and more then likely these females were early feminists. When you are involved in personal Bible study, it can be hard to find mutual identity in both feminism and Christianity.

Christianity has some harsh verses that if taken at a surface level can feel demeaning and sexist toward women, and put off to females who are feminists.

What is feminism?

Feminism is a word that comes with many different implications. But the actual definition is inarguable.

The definition of feminism is the advocacy of women’s rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes. Feminism is just the principle of advocating for equal rights for both women and men.

As Christian women, it’s hard to know what are we to do as feminists …
