We’ve become a generation of imperfect people seeking "perfect” partners.
Keeping a pure thought life and remaining celibate until marriage can seem almost impossible, especially when we're surrounded in a sex-driven world full of temptations and messages urging us to toss our convictions to the wind.
The sexual tension that pervades even the simplest campus ministry meeting is a pungent and thick as smoke. I can't help but think that these problems wouldn't be problems if we were OK with casual mingling.
I love my husband, but he's not God's match for me. God is not an omnipotent Yenta, spending His days deciding which coupling would lead to the easiest, happiest, most attractive twosome. He certainly isn't sending down Christian biased algorithms to profit driven websites.
Christianity often forgets that our main man was a single, 30-something-year-old man. While his family was still a part of his life, his central support system was his friends and followers. So why is there such a large disconnect between single young adults and Mainline Protestantism?
