Katie Kuhlman, 24, is suing Sean Patrick Burns, who she met on Christian Mingle, for the sex attack and his mother for defamation after she sent a Facebook message to her brother last year indicating she had lied about the rape.
According to the complaint, the message read: 'I'm wondering if you are aware of your sister, Katie's accusation that she was raped in November 2012 and that she testified in a trial this summer which has sent an innocent man to prison?
I’ve had multiple conversations and have read many blogs and articles about online dating. Online dating gives the users the chance to put their best foot forward and keep the ugly in the background. Online dating has the potential to be used because of a lack of trust in God.
I’ve decided to boil all of that information down into this one teeny tiny blog post. Going online requires you to fork over a bunch of personal information (that’s how they make the matches). It can be difficult to know the true beliefs, convictions, and character of the guys you meet. A lack of trust that God is the Creator and hold the hearts of Kings in His hands. God is working in your life and giving you opportunities to grow and become more like Jesus. God has tons of work (the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few) and singles are a great set of people to focus on that Kingdom work.
The interface is clean and easy to navigate, making the experience of finding love online as painless as possible.
The community was created specifically for Christian singles looking to find like-minded people for friendship, romance, or marriage, and faith influences nearly every aspect of the site.
My life verse (Proverbs 3:5-6) has really become my personal mantra on this issue. Don’t get online blindly or in a hurry because your friends encourage you to do it. You’re a girl going online and getting to know total strangers. Without serious wisdom involved you could end up chatting with a total weirdo or creeper. It takes time to create a profile, time to keep up with emails and time to get to know the different potentials. Don’t underestimate His sovereign control over your love life.
It says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”At this point, I’m just trusting that God will guide me (through His Word and the wise people around me) in the direction He wants me to go. Don’t get online out of fear or a lack of trust in God. It can help differentiate the intentional from the non-intentional. By going online you will have many more potential options. Online dating sites are well known for matching guys and girls up according to personality, religion, and preferences, etc. Online dating is often for the purpose of finding your lifelong match. Seek to trust in Him with ALL of your heart and He truly will make your “relationship path” clear.
