Age gap relationships

Dear Jim: Is it wrong to date someone of a much younger age?

This questioned is raised from time to time in an email from a single. The question about age gap relationships is either about men dating younger women or women dating younger men.

Dear Jim: How does God describe what sex is?


Singles have wrestled with this question, in one form or another, since the beginning of time, I suspect. In another article, I have shared ‘why does God say not to have sex outside of marriage? (You can find this earlier article here: Sex Outside Marriage.

I often receive emails asking just how far can one go before it becomes sex outside of marriage?

Let’s begin with what Christ shared when He was on earth. Matthew 5:27-28 states the following:

‘You have heard that it was said, Thou shall not commit adultery: but I say unto you, that every one that looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.’

Singles can sometimes feel lonely or disappointed about not having met their perfect match yet. Our blog post today takes a slightly different approach on this. It’s about the impact of Jesus’ actions in the world and in our own lives. And, that we shouldn’t take for granted the plans He has for each one of us.

However, the journey in finding ‘The One’ isn’t always a walk in the park.  Some may find love early, while some will have to wait before it arrives.

All human beings need love. People won’t be satisfied with their life if there’s no one who can support them and show them respect and love.

Tinder has long been a staple of online dating. Unfortunately, it has also become a breeding ground for instant gratification and thus given online dating a bad reputation. Tinder has also made judging someone purely on their appearance a perfectly normal and acceptable thing to do.

Justin explores the origins of Valentine’s Day and the foundation of the traditions we see today. Should single Christians celebrate this occasion or avoid it, as it started as a pagan festival?

Where did Valentines Come From?

We may celebrate Valentine’s Day as a day of romance on 14th February, but its origins are actually quite murky, as there are many diverging accounts, and separating fact from fiction is difficult.

Dear Jim: What does God say about masturbation?

Here is a topic that is seldom discussed in Christian circles but certainly one very applicable to the single life. I do not find a “black and white” answer in the Bible, but there are some elements that we can draw out of it. Let me share some personal perspectives first.
