Across Christianity, there are far more single women than single men, which means that the odds are not in the favor of godly single women. There are three main ideas that I believe are completely false and/or overblown.
In addition, for theological reasons, many Christian women do not want to be the dating initiator, asking guys out and taking the lead in the relationship. For starters the idea that there are more Christian women than men is complete garbage.
One of the problems in our evangelical culture today when it comes to singleness and marriage is the message that is sent over and over again that men are less spiritual, more sinful, and less mature than women. In case you don’t believe me read the following quote from one of the biggest names in evangelical culture today.
