by Larry Solomon from Biblical Gender Roles – How the Modern Practice of Christian Dating is Cruel to Men as always linked through Do Not Link
Editor’s note – Larry finally comes out and spells out the only way in his mind for two people to decide to marry, by committee meeting. Followed by a quickie wedding so Mr. Bridegroom can control his brain and his gonads. Such weak silly men in Mr. Solomon’s world!
If we are to truly avoid emotional cruelty toward men and men being placed in highly tempting positions then Christian dating needs to be approached in a very logical and methodical manner.
A man and woman definitely need to “interview” one another and then have their families and friends interview prospective spouses. Once compatibility has been established the wedding should be planned very quickly. During this short engagement period the couple should seek pre-marital counseling with a Pastor to make sure they both fully understand and agree upon the Biblical roles of a husband and wife in marriage.
