Friendship dating intimacy
German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer addresses this issue in a wedding sermon he wrote for his sister from a Nazi jail cell.
He says that God joins the relationship between a man and a woman at the point of marriage.
God may, in fact, have a spunky brunette in mind, and he's steering you toward her as you read this.
But the Bible does not promise that God will provide a loving relationship for you while you sit around and do nothing.
Though God won't do all the work for you, he'll be with you every step of the way.
You are destined to be with her, and God will guide you to her." Good luck finding this one in the Bible.
There is plenty of stuff about God's will for his people, God wanting good things for you, and God's ultimate plan.
One glance at the numerous books about love, dating, and marriage suggests that we're making a lot of this up as we go along.
Of course, there are biblical principles that are essential in dating.
