Capital Punishment Is Sanctioned By The Bible

Christians and believers in the Bible, the Word of God calls for the death penalty for first degree murder, rape, and other acts of violence. The Bible tells us to behold the goodness AND the severity of God whose Word--including in the New Testament--does NOT speak against capital punishment Read the scriptural proof now.

La Biblia sanciona la pena capital

Cristianos y creyentes en la Biblia, la Palabra de Dios pide la pena de muerte para el asesinato en primer grado, la violación y otros actos de violencia. La Biblia nos dice que contemplemos la bondad Y la severidad de Dios, cuya Palabra -incluso en el Nuevo Testamento- NO habla en contra de la pena capital. Lea ahora la prueba bíblica.

40 and Never Married No Kids: Mature Christian Singles Dating


The Never Married No Kids Stigma

Single Christians of both genders who are 40 and never married with no children are often viewed as weird, gay, or a social misfit. While it is true that some of these people do lack basic social skills, and/or dating skills, that certainly is not the case with many in this group. This is especially true for mature Christian singles who are genuine followers of Christ and looking for a godly wife or husband. True born-again Christians are very far and few between. The number is even smaller when speaking of those who are single.

Never Married No Kids and Looking for the Same

A significant number of mature Christian singles, who are around 40 and never married, are looking for the same in a godly spouse. Why? Is there anything wrong with that? What might be "wrong" with it is that desiring a never married, no kids spouse once you are past the age of 40 can be extremely difficult. This certainly is a truth that people might want to consider if they are tired of the single life. However, anyone who truly does not want children, whether their own or someone else's, probably would do well to continue seeking only the never married, no kids group.

There are, however, very important and "valid" reasons for many mature Christian singles who are 40 and over, never married and no kids, seeking the same in prospects. A significant number of people who identify themselves as Christian or Catholic do not believe in divorce. There are others who do not believe in remarriage after divorce when the divorced spouse is still alive or when adultery was not the sole reason for the divorce. This article is NOT a debate on these issues and beliefs. It is about the real reasons that exist in never married, no kids, mature Christian singles who are against seeking a spouse among the divorced.

Considering someone who has never been married, but who has children might also be a cause for concern. Is the "missing" parent still in the life of the children; and will he or she cause problems in the relationship? Will the children be accepting of a step-parent? Is child support being paid, causing significant amounts of money to be deducted from the total income of the house?

It is a fact that there are happily blended families. The truth is, however, that they are a rarity. And, most mature Christians who are never married with no kids do not want to invite the problems that a blended family might pose. Others welcome the children of others, especially if they do not and/or cannot have any of their own children.

Special Considerations for Mature Christian Singles

There are two sides to almost every "story." The same can be said when speaking of single Christians who are never married with no kids. Many of them, because of their wise choice to live in obedience to Christ, did not have the choices of prospects that lukewarm or non-Christians had. However, beware that a good number of these people "threw away" the few choices in life that God did send their way.

Some, not all, mature Christian singles who are now 40 and over and never married with no kids, are in such a situation because they sabotage themselves. They find insignificant reasons for rejecting a prospect. For example, some are closed to the fact that sometimes geographic relocation is necessary. Some have the communication skills of a three year old, yet they attempt a long distance relationship. Some have ridiculous requirements in a spouse. Some are controlling; and others play games while pretending to be miserable in singleness. Don't waste time with these unstable people. They are going to spend the rest of their life single--and complaining. And, if you allow them to waste your time, you might end up doing the same.

If you are a mature Christian single in the category of never married, no kids, and are serious about finding a godly husband or wife, don't give up. It may appear that you are alone, but you are not. Holy Matrimony totally FREE Christian dating was started to offer a quality service for TRUE, born-again followers of Christ.

Holy Hank this page is very rude and condescending to never married Christians who are past age 40, of which I am one.

I will have to link to this page from my blog (called "Christian Pundit", not to be confused with another blog of a similar title, only with the word "the" at the start), critiquing it to the hilt, and as another example of how unmarried, adult Christians are negatively stereotyped by other Christians.

This page lobs too many assumptions - negative, nasty, and rude - towards people who don't marry past their 30s. Wow. Just wow.

The article points out truths regarding some of the reasons why SOME Christian singles are still single. SOME is not ALL! We even used the word "some". How much clearer could we have been?! In fact, we even said that the truths we are pointing out do NOT apply to most Christians who are still single with no kids past 40. We also made it clear that it is simply extremely difficult to find a true believer. Where did you miss these statements, which are not in the least bit accusatory? Did you even bother to read the article before making your comment? Or did you read one thing, get angry, and send us a comment that does not make sense in light of defending where no attack was made?? Point out one thing that we said that is NOT true, and we will apologize, and remove it. Otherwise, read before commenting!

Yes, I read your post before commenting.

Despite your "some" qualifier, it reads as though you're saying older singles are too picky, are socially stupid, too stubborn (won't move to a new location), etc.

I don't think it's even helpful to generalize about why "some" remain single - at the end of the day, you do not know.

If you read articles about the increasing numbers of adult singles in our nation, it's due in part to cultural changes.

More people are delaying marriage to finish college, get a career established, etc, while others just don't find marriage appealing.

There are cultural considerations at play as to why marriage rates are down; it's not all due to the actions of individual single adults.

Tossing out suggestions, like, "Hey, you're still single maybe because you were too picky or passed up one decent guy at age 30" (etc), is victim-blaming.

It's like saying, "Hey, the reason your granny died of cancer is because you didn't pray hard enough - this may not be true for everyone who's granny died, but it MAY be true for you,"
or, "The reason God allowed your house to get blown away in a hurricane is because you didn't attend church enough."

That's all very victim-blaming.

Instead of assuming or guessing as to why any single may still be single past age 40, just offer empathy to the never marrieds who may read this page.

Never, ever reel off answers to concerns like this. Just admit you don't know. Saying, "I don't know why God didn't heal your family member" or "I don't know why you never married though you had wanted to" is far more considerate and compassionate.

Some singles have said things like, "I won't date anyone who won't eat Chinese food". To anyone sensible that is a silly reason to reject someone. And silliness is not of God. And don't dare attempt to equate a conversation about singles to one about death. Two entirely different things! We bet you would have no problem with the many articles published here that offer encouragement to discouraged older singles. Or did you not bother to read them? However, you have a problem with telling them the truth. As the saying goes, if the shoe fits wear it. If it doesn't, you have no need to get angry.
