Christian Singles Titles are Hot, Hot, Hot
Posted on July 21, 2004
One of the hottest trends in self-help books is helping Christian singles navigate the world of dating. The New York Times has an interesting article about the subject. Apparently, many Christian singles believe that passivity really works: that there is no need to actively pursue a spouse, because God will just airlift one in when the time is right. This approach frustrates pastors and counselors -- who are determined to help.
Ben Young, an associate pastor at Second Baptist Church in Houston and author of the book The Ten Commandments of Dating, responds to those singles who choose to sit at home and wait: "Well, then the only person you're going to meet is the postman or a Jehovah's Witness." So, singles, you've heard it here first -- God helps those who help themselves in the dating world.
