Sovereign grace ministries dating Looking for dirty chat
Meaning that a person isn’t attracted to someone who is obviously attracted to them…when there is a challenge presented do they feel compelled pursue someone and win/conquer them.
Very interesting to read the history of the beginning of their relationship.
You see, back in the days when we were part of a Sovereign Grace church and were trying to figure out whether we wanted to put down roots and actually become full-fledged members there, something that kept getting in the way of our feeling fully comfortable with SGM’s culture was the fact that every family in our church apparently believed that the “courtship system” was the only truly “biblical” way to find a mate.
Yes, there were varying degrees to which the different families subscribed to these beliefs in courtship.
I have no need to be protected from any evidence or response they have.
On the contrary, I have sought out this evidence and a response, for more than seven years.
She said the case dismissal—in which the judge ruled the alleged victims had waited too long to sue—was “not evidence, in any way, shape, or form, that SGM has not done what is alleged,” and urged SGC to allow GRACE (Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment) to conduct an independent investigation.
Denhollander said: I am glad to know that SGC is concerned about victims of sexual assault, but I assure them the most unsympathetic thing they can continue to do is refuse to respond to the concerns of sexual assault victims, myself included.
The thing that stood out to me most was Carolyn Mahaney’s use of the word “courtship” to describe her pre-marriage relationship with CJ.
Reader and commenter “Pampy” said, I also read on the Women’s Blog about C. and Carolyn’s recent 33rd wedding anniversary and Carolyn’s blog on how she and C. J., and that this is what attracted him to her…the fact that she didn’t want anything to do with him.
As someone who is very familiar with counseling techniques and emotional conditions, I can say that this qualifies as a very dysfunctional situation that can be referred to as the “push-pull” syndrome.
I pray that God gives us all grace to respond wisely and biblically.
But regardless of the public discourse, we are strongly committed to ensuring a safe environment for the children in our churches.
