Am a Kenyan single ,48.Born again and a pastor. Have one mature daughter. Still have hope to be married. Can some body join me in prayer? Its challenging to serve while single. Pls advice

First of all, remaining deceived when one is born again, makes salvation impossible. And second, people do not understand the marriage laws of God.
---Frank_4695 on 8/10/18

Some are so devoted to this concept of marriage that after divorcing, they marry and divorce again and again and still believe in marriage. I think many Pastors subscribe to this concept as well. A woman pastor hoped that I would become one of her husbands. She had had five husbands and never tired of believing in marriage, divorce, and remarriage, and the wonderful thing in it is that she could continue to pastor and be a testimony and an example to others. Praise the Lord! that born again believers still believe in marriage again and again. Two thumbs up for marriage unions. The more often, the better our testimony to matrimony.

The reasons not to marry are plain. One, you don't know someone til after you marry them. Two, the supreme court has offered women the right to choose, no regard for God or the Bible or the child or the father, so a man have no say. Third, more marriages end in divorce. Fourth, alimony. Fifth, children are taken away from the man in favor of the woman and the man little sees his kids, but must pay support.

We need to be very careful in whom we marry!

In response to this blog I wish to say that I've learned that it is essential to wait on The Lord concerning meeting anyone. Believe me I've tried to do it on my on and had to learn the hard way that if God's hand isn't involved the results are only going to be chaotic and destructive in the end. Another underlying issue is that I've never really come across a woman that had that same fire and zeal for the Lord like I do. After all, in order for a "relationship" to be evident. 2 people must be able to "relate" to one another 1st and that's all I have to say regarding this matter. If someone doesn't love God as much as I love him then it's just not going to work.

But we see how there is a fifty-percent divorce rate in the U.S., including among Bible believers. I'd say this is because of ones getting favoritistic for ones they want to USE for their own dreams to come true.

And so, they are loving blindly.

A "real" man is wise to this. If you want a real Christian brother, you need to be committed to how God says to love, so you can connect with him.

God created marriage because He believed in it. I, as a born-again man, do also. But Jesus must be at the center of any marriage. Personally, it is my fervent desire to meet and marry a Holy-Spirit-filled believing woman.
---Gary_L. on 6/22/07

I hope those men are out there! I believe there are!
---maryj9396 on 6/14/07

There could be many reasons single men do not take that serious step to marriage:

1) Some love the Lord and his work and do not want their hearts to be divided.

2) Some feel they are not up to taking the responsibility coming with marriage not being spritually, emotially, finanically ready

3) Some just wait for God's will and right timing during which time their hearts will be filled with the desire.

Last but not least some men are naturally shy why not women help in there...
---Ephre3798 on 5/28/07

Actually, the question was posed because Elroys question 10/07/05, do real born again single women exist, was up yesterday.
It's interesting to see how there is always an assumption that when a question such as this is asked, there is some desperate person waiting for "the" answer to come up.
It's an honest question. Most of the responses are about what I expected.
I'm confident in my spiritual walk, and being married is not my main focus in life.
Thanks for the replies:)

I can think of several reasons why a Christian man may not want to marry:

1. Health.
2. Not finding a woman who would make a spiritually fruitful marriage.
3. Finding love of Jesus not leaving any room for love of someone else. (Think of St. Paul.)

But it sounds to me, Lynet, that you're a bit too concerned about getting your MRS degree.

I'm way too old! Seriously, Linda, my wife of over thirty years, passed into Glory in 2000. No one could ever compare to her and it would be wrong to ever ask someone to try. She was - well, pick a superlative! The reason for any success I ever had and the only good thing about me. She only made two mistakes in her life: She said "Yes" and then went through with the wedding!

"Real" born again. Either you are or you are not.
"True" Holy Ghost anointed men, either you are or you are not.
Only the "True" "Holy Ghost anointed Scripure", all Scripture is Holy.

Men do not chase desperate women. It scares them off. If desperate women chase men, they run, it scares them off.
---Brad on 5/27/07

Men may not mature as fast as women, they may never mature at all, ever.
But men can sense a desperate woman.
Desperate is not desirable. It's easy, too easy. Men like challenges. Men are natural born hunters, and they like to do the picking. If you think not, you would not be asking this question. Women who chase men don't keep them, emotionally.
A man convinced against his own will, is of the same opinion still.
---Brad on 5/27/07

Lynet, if you're searching for a man, the more elusive that "man" is going to be. They'll hide from you and dread every time you've arranged to see them at their watering holes. (Figured out their schedules, movements - called stalking in some instances). Men talk about women that chase them like bloodhounds, they don't like it.
Seek the Lord, He'll find you a man that won't run. He'll come looking for you.

---Brad on 5/27/07

Hi, Lynet . . . I'd say there are real born-again guys who are ready to get married. And they know they are to be the head of their wives, relating the way God's love has them relating >

"nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock." (1 Peter 5:3)

"submitting to one another in the fear of God." (Ephesians 5:21)

"Do all things without complaining and disputing," (Philippians 2:14)
---Bill_bila5659 on 5/27/07

So, if I am not becoming the head of a sister, this is all I need to know.

And we understand our first priority is to fully love God and be sensitive and submissive to Him, in how we relate.

And Jesus says, "For if you love those who love you, what reward have you?" (in Matthew 5:46)

So, I understand that God's love will have me loving ALL people, NOT just getting all my attention called to some one sister.

We hold to this.
