Day 132 (Cockblocked by Jesus?)

“Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?”
– 2 Corinthians 6:14

So there you are, half-way through some Kenchic kuku porno na chips a sumptuous meal with a very attractive looking sister and all through the date the conversation is flowing until the issue of religion comes up. Personally this has always been my Achilles’ heel. I mean it’s hard to control a first impression created by telling someone that you’re sort of in-between faiths, that you’re exploring your spirituality, that you believe in God but you dont want to be necessarily be tied down to any one religion.

Not having a church you go to every Sunday is apparently as criminal as not owning your own set of golf irons and having a club membership locked down somewhere and using expressions like teeing off, putting and hole in one. Yes, I know, I’m going to hell and with my luck I’ll probably be ironing designer shirts for eternity.

So aaaaaaaaanyway, my boy G who upto this point fully identifies with my religion issue, was telling me earlier how he’s had an unfortunate streak of dating saved women. And so, we ended up discussing why saved women insist they would not consider having anything to do with you unless you’re saved. What sort of thing is that? Men are men, saved or not saved and if you think that dating or even marrying a saved man will guarantee you peace and happiness, then by all means, go right ahead. But dont even dare make it seem that I am less of a man or not worthy just because I’m not saved. Men ought to be judged based on their own strengths and weakness, their qualities and flaws and not solely on the basis of who or what they believe in!

That being said, I must admit there is something absolutely to die for in those women with deep religious conviction, and don’t necessarily rub it in your face but you can just tell they’re content in their spirituality and religiosity, waiting for The One whom God has pre-chosen for them. And until that One comes along, they’re happy laying in wait.

Something like this…

  1. Forgive me for saying this but there’s something kinda selfish about this post. It’s all about you and not about her. Have you stopped to think that just maybe it’s coz she needs someone who can relate with her on that level? Of course not every guy who says he’s saved will guarantee happiness! The news is full of evidence of that.
    If a chic is the real deal saved then Christ means everything to her. It’s not just about believing in some external thing. It’s about everything in life. If a guy is not saved then he can be the most charming, wonderful guy imaginable but he’ll never make her truly happy. He can try, but he’ll never do it. And as much as she will helplessly, totally be in love with him, it’ll grieve her that he rejects the God she serves. And about what that means for his soul.
    You can laugh about going to hell but don’t think she will take that lightly… not if she loves you. I could write a whole lot about this coz there’s so much more to say but I’ll spare you my ranting. I can get a little carried away, but this here touched a sore spot.

  2. Not selfish, just subjective. Although I do concede to what you’ve raised towards the end when I say:

    “That being said, I must admit there is something absolutely to die for in those women with deep religious conviction, and don’t necessarily rub it in your face but you can just tell they’re content in their spirituality and religiosity, waiting for The One whom God has pre-chosen for them. And until that One comes along, they’re happy laying in wait.”

  3. I didn’t know religiosity was a word until I read this. Yay! New vocab.

    However, if you think saved ladies are annoying you haven’t met saved men. The kind that think “Jesus loves you” is an appropriate thing to say when you are horny and just wanna have sex despite any feelings that Jesus might have for you!!

  4. Can I call you KD? Thanks!

    LOL @ “Jesus loves you”. I guess the frustration can also be both ways. Thank you for that reminder.

    So what would you suggest is the best way to deal with this issue of religion within relationships especially in the dating and courtship stages?
