Perry Answers YOUR Questions About Singleness, Sex and Dating - Part 7

Sep 27, 2015



Episode Description

In this podcast Perry answers REAL questions that you've submitted to about singleness, sex and dating! In this month's episode, Perry answered the following questions:

  • "When is the appropriate age to start accepting Godly pursuits from guys?" - Karis
  • "Why were Old Testament heroes such as Solomon, David, Abraham and Jacob allowed to have more than one wife?" - Kyle
  • "How important is "chemistry" in dating and looking for a future spouse? For example- if you like and respect a guy a whole lot but just don't have that "spark."" - Alex
  • "Hey Pastor P! I'm very much attracted to and have a lot of admiration for a girl that I do youth ministry with. We are close friends. Every time people are around us, they wonder why we aren't dating. I confronted her once, but she is only interested in friendship #friendzone. I'm an interesting guy and I believe I would make a great husband, but most Christian girls tend to want the "bad boys". My question is, why do Christian guys always seem to finish last?" - Joshua
  • "In a relationship, how can you tell when to keep fighting and when to just let it go and break up?" - Carly
  • "I am learning to put down my ideals of what a godly man looks like. For example: maybe he isn't the up front Christian leader, maybe he also is the silent man who communicates his love for God by doing actions. So I want to ask you: What are the different ways that men show they love God? How can I know when a man's first priority is God (even if it isn't something he would be quick to talk about.)?" - Karla
  • "What about those of us who struggle with homosexuality, but don't want to be single the rest of our lives? How do we cope?" - Christina
  • "I'm a 28 year old female in love with Jesus. I'm a leader at my church and am passionate about growing Gods kingdom. The problem I have is finding my male equal. That guy- passionately in love with Jesus, capable of being my spiritual "head"- seems nonexistent around here. I've never found it attractive for a man to have a previous marriage and/or kids. I feel those are things I want to experience for the first time with my husband. All my life people have told me I'm picky but I just feel I'm searching for Gods best for me. After all, I don't have that baggage. I have a job, a house, I'm an independent woman. I want the same things in my partner. What do you think? Should I ask God to open my heart and mind to something I've never thought I wanted- to be less picky? Or am I right in being so selective?" - Kayla
  • "Is there EVER grounds for divorce aside from abuse and infidelity?" Kim
