Christian advice on dating cheating
Question: "I am in the process of getting a divorce.
Can I start dating, or do I have to wait until the divorce is final?
But it cannot redeem it, at least not in any truly deep and lasting way.
But the gospel offers real grace for the heart reeling that can happen from finding out about a boyfriend’s or girlfriend’s sexual past.
When it happened to me, there was almost nothing out there to give me Christian guidance on what to do about it. And what was there, was, I discovered in retrospect, based on a false understanding of psychology and, even worse, a false understanding of Biblical marriage and sexuality.
Almost all the stuff I found was about a guy cheating, not the woman cheating.
This is despite the fact that female marital infidelity is a growing trend within the Christian community, one that the church refuses to deal with and likes to paper over. He had mine, even though it took me a long time to realize that. She will try to tell you she did this because she was “unhaaaaapy,” because you don’t listen to her, because you don’t communicate well, because you don’t keep the house clean (my ex-wife tried all of these). No, the Bible gives us only one reason that she cheated on you: Lust. Women lust too, even though, again, a lot of Christian pastors don’t ever mention that.
The other day I mentioned Christian Men’s Defense Network.
Given the familiar names in the discussion there and the nearly 700 clicks to his site in the stats since then I know that many of you have already gone over there to see what he is building.
