by Scott Croft If you're reading this, you're interested in dating. In our society, dating has become something of an obsession. It's just something you do if you're single and of age (and that age is quickly dropping) in America. In fact, depending on which statistics one believes, the divorce rate for professing Christians may actually be higher than for Americans as a whole.

You've done it, you're doing it, you'd like to do it, or you need to teach somebody else how to do it. It is considered the natural precursor to marriage, and is generally considered something to be desired, whatever form it might take. If you were to Google the word "matchmaker," you would receive something in the neighborhood of 12,100,000 responses — with a few of these outfits claiming to be Christian, but most making no such claim. As evangelical Christians, we're called to be distinct in the ways we think and act about all issues that confront us and those around us. Granted, not all of these people are evangelicals, but we're not doing so well either.

That truth has brought immeasurable emotional pain and other consequences to many Christians.

The doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture assumes inerrancy but then goes a step further.

This doctrine simply holds that the Bible is sufficient to guide and instruct us authoritatively in all areas of our faith and life, and that there is no area of life about which the Bible has no guidance for us.

Ever wonder how many single guys out there are actually looking to find a Christian wife?

I would think many Christian single women in the market for a husband would be interested in knowing the number of Christian men hoping to find a Christian wife.

We have brothers and sisters in Christ to hold us accountable and to help us apply the Word to our lives.
