It may not be as bad as a police interrogation, but it’s definitely a high-pressure, in-depth, heart-searching situation for the guy.Uncle Batta shared with me the questions he asks each of his prospective sons-in-law, and I think they are good questions for any Christian couple to ask themselves when contemplating a serious relationship. Do you love the Lord with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength?
While you can't predict the future, you can make choices that will help guide you to relationships that are both exciting and honoring to God. As you think through potential dates, ask yourself these questions: 1. "Don't judge a book by its cover." That's how the old saying goes. (For instance: You value good grades and plan to attend college; your potential date regularly cuts classes and has no plans for life after graduation.) Do they have decent standards when it comes to the movies and TV shows they watch?
True, first impressions aren't totally accurate. But until you get to know a person, you must depend on first impressions. Are they committed, growing Christians who seek to live what they believe? If they've been in a serious dating relationship before, did they flirt with others or cheat on the person they were dating?
It’s a valid question for him to ask, because he believes in the Christian principle of the man and woman in a marriage being “equally yoked, “meaning that they share the same religious beliefs and depth of commitment to their faith.
Marriages are full of challenges, and Uncle Batta believes that being equally yoked in faith gives couples an advantage in dealing with those challenges.
If you're planning to be intimate or stay together for a long time (maybe even get married), you should feel comfortable asking anything you feel you should know, or whatever you're curious about.
