Over the weekend, I discovered perhaps the strangest new addition to the Christian dating cadre: Reformed
The site is designed exclusively for Christians who adhere to the Calvinist tradition, a theological system that focuses on human depravity, God’s sovereignty, and the idea that God has already chosen the select few who will be saved.
Are you Christian, dating in Canada and looking for a partner who shares your beliefs, both in a loving future and in God?
Elite Singles can help, matching you with Christian singles who share your values; Canadian men and women who are looking for a spiritually supportive partnership.
God uses our choices, other people, and sometimes even modern technology, to bring about marriages.
Some singles don’t bother to look for a spouse, believing God will bring the person to them, while others are forever on a feverish search for one, fearing they may miss him or her.
There should be a balance, as we remember that God is perfectly loving (Ephesians ; 1 John -18) and perfectly sovereign over every situation, desire and need (Psalm 1; Romans -39).
Back then, families helped young women and men meet and become engaged and often chose their children’s mates for them.
Today, singles are more on their own to find a mate.
