If you answered “yes” to the above questions, then 1 Corinthians 13 says that you truly have a loving relationship.
Are you freaked out by the idea of dating an SCD—you know, a Super-Christian Dude? But still, I find myself wary of guys (and gals) who are, you know, Christian. I have been rejected on more than one occasion by a woman who considered me to be “too Christian” for her taste, and while I won't pretend to be able to speak for these women, I do wonder how much their decisions were informed by my reality as opposed to their preconceived notions.By putting Christ before your relationship, you’ll have the wisdom to know whether or not you mean “I love you” in the biblical – not just emotional – sense.

That guy likely chose to justify his behavior by clinging to certain Bible verses. Are there Christians who have a naive, simple-minded view of the world and can’t seem to think for themselves? But there are also Christian Nobel Laureates and Supreme Court Justices.We should date for fun, friendship, personality development and selection of a mate, not to be popular or for security.
