If it sounds like I have it out for Christian dudes, well, I should tell you—I am one.
Speaking for myself and all the other SCDs who never stood a chance in this modern dating labyrinth, I think we deserve a shot. That number includes everything from Roman Catholics and Russian Orthodox to Southern Baptists and Evangelical Lutherans.
We still serve the Lord through weekly volunteering at the food pantry.“ How can a young person stay on the path of purity? I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” Psalm 119: 9-11Nick began memorizing scripture around the time we started dating and he mentioned to me more than once that he was able to remember full chapters and books from the Bible because it wasn’t just stored in his mind but God’s word was written on his heart.
Although I am a follower of Jesus, I have a background in science which I feel only enhances my understanding of God’s creation and the good work He does each day.
My passions include writing to inspire others, crafting and creating art, tending to and saving animals, gardening, running, traveling and enjoying the company of good friends and family.
When I moved home I began volunteering with Nick at our local food pantry each week even before we began dating.
Just as said in Proverbs , “ In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders.
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.
Have you avoided men with online profiles touting their “love of the Lord”? I’m convinced that both men and women tend to approach relationships with a set of assumptions about potential partners, and I think religion is one trait that is too often judged based upon fiction rather than fact. Christianity is the largest religion in the world, claiming 2.2 billion of the world’s 6.9 billion people, as of last year.
Yet this is something that vanished in him as he committed himself to Christ. When things would come up in our dating life that we knew we shouldn’t do or positions we should put ourselves into, Nick persevered.
He insisted we may not enjoy the restrictions God has set up for us to follow, but it will be worth it.
