Jonathan Merritt has some interesting words about ChristianMingle.com. You should read all, but this struck me, about the result of his search:
The search function of the site is user-friendly. I’m given a list of women in my area. Their profile pictures are surprisingly provocative—low cut shirts, exposed shoulders, skin-tight pants, pouty lips. The selection proves again that while the Lord may “looketh at the heart,” His people are still very much interested in outward appearances.
Yeah, methinks he’s got that right. And the rest of it too. It’s not that one cannot meet one’s future spouse online, though I’m old fashioned enough that it seems odd. It’s just that the theology is so hopelessly wrong. No, make that shallow—and disgusting.
