Divorced christian women dating
That's why I asked- perhaps it is a CMA position that dating during a divorce is ok.Or perhaps this particular staff is choosing to turn a blind eye.If 'dating' is only defined as a sexual relationship prior to divorce, (which isn't Biblically condoned before marriage anyway) then we could claim any relationship as 'only friends', yet spending time and investing emotional energy into a friendship.I believe there needs to be caution here, and do we really need to determine motive if two are seen as a couple routinely.I see alot of Christians openly date, even in church -while going through a divorce. Is the church responsible to hold accountable these actions if they know, especially if someone is serving at church or on staff?Jesse If by "date" you mean going out with friends, with no intention of getting serious, maybe there is no issue, other than avoiding the appearance of evil.( In my situation, the marriage was very abusive, and resulted in immoral, deviant behaviors and an unrepentant spouse.It would have been dangerous to myself and children to remain in the circumstances.
Sadly, I believe that in our current American culture, it has become all too common for professing Christians to disregard what the Bible teaches about many issues and live in outright disobedience.

I also know this isn't the first and only instance that the church was aware of dating, living together, etc., and chose to do nothing, by means of accountability.
How does one trust leadership when the leaders are not modeling Godly leading? I have found new relationship with Jesus in the past 3 yrs that I have been going through this. And while I hope to perhaps one day have a healthy, Godly relationship, if it be His will, today that is not my focus or goal.
