A few months ago, I wrote a post concerning Christian Pick-Up Lines. Since that time, I received some other lines from readers and updated the post. It was full of over-spiritualized sentiments of why two believers should be dating.
Maybe the lines worked for you. You got a date, but you now find yourself like someone I went to college with who thought it was God’s will to date and then later it was God’s will not to date that same person (which I said either God is schizophrenic or you are taking God’s name in vain – he didn’t like that too much).
If they worked and you now find yourself in a position where the relationship needs to end, but you don’t know how to break it to them spiritually. No worries, I have collected a list of Christian Break-Up Lines.
Here they are:
- “I’m sorry, I’ve found someone more spiritual.”
- “I’m sorry, it’s just not God’s will.”
- “I feel called to the mission field. As far away from you and as soon as possible.”
- “It could never work. I’m Arminian and you’re Calvinist. It’s like I chose you, but God chose me for you. It’s like you have no will in this relationship at all.”
- “God loves me and has a better plan for my life.”
- “You know, I feel like I’m dating my brother.”
- “You’re just not evangelical enough.”
- “I really want to get out of my comfort zone.”
- “At least I got a lot out of our Bible studies together.”
- “You need someone with lower standards.”
- “There’s always Christian Mingle.”
- “I think we should just be prayer partners.”
- “It’s not you, it’s Jesus.”
- “I do love you, but it’s only an agape type of love right now.”
- “I’ve decided to try celibacy for a while.”
- “Last night, it got a little too secular for me.”
- “At the rate I’m growing spiritually, you’ll never be able to catch up.”
Any to add to the list?
