    I needed to access to my partner’s cell phone. He has changed for the past few days. I came in contact with an hacker on instagram @redhackpro He explained how he would grant me access to my partner’s phone without any suspicious activities. I was able to spy on my husband phone remotely with the help of Redhackpro.

    In all honesty, A woman sounds great, but I’m looking more into fellowshipping with one. Growing in the faith and as friends. Whoever wants to text and talk about God, you’re welcome to message me!

    Im not lucky to find one, but its okay i trust God for his plan for me. Now a days its really hard to find true love. But im happy for those who happy married and find their true love in online dating.

  7. Candace Smith on February 17, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    Online dating is convenient. But you approach them the same way without seeing them. I am giving it another chance. But I am holding to my principles and discernment.

  8. Chel on February 17, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    It blew my mind the first time I heard you mentioned online dating in one of your videos. Now I’m here wanting to know if there are apps for Christians.

  9. Megan Manuel on February 17, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    I’m 23 years old and never gone on a date before. I just moved 4.3k miles away to an island. And I’ve been here for a few months already. I feel like it would be a good way to meet someone, especially since I haven’t found someone yet. I am very strict with who I might go out with. But it doesn’t hurt to try

  10. RED Sky on February 17, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    I know you gives us advice on this, but I have a prayer request from you. Bring me in your prayer on this matter.

  11. Kwesi Amponsah on February 17, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    Thanks for this video, the most vulnerable people in our society are genuine believers and it’s sad to know how many men and especially women have been taken of through online dating. unlike traditional dating where there would be someone who would surely know a bit about the one you want to date and could help you with a bit of details of that person to support your decisions, online dating is totally different because you meet a totally strange person who would not wish to disclose much personal details or true lifestyle since she does not want you to prejudge her by her past, you both also want to ensure discretion to a level which is also not helping your full convictions, at the same time both don’t want to waste time on the wrong person and so there is a bit of pressure at all cost. And one dangerous thing is that if you try for couple of times and you don’t find the right person for you, there is the tendency of becoming addicted and idolizing it. Pray for God to really guide you before you enter into any dating site weather christian or non christian site. beware of the king’s meat when you remember Daniel.

    If I were to use online dating I would look for someone humble and that loves god because only god knows who’s for you for now I’m just waiting on him to he says ok she will be your spouse

  13. Ana Ibanez on February 17, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    this was such great advice, thank you for all your videos!

    John 14:6 KJV, "Jesus saith, I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

    1 Peter 2:24 NIV, "He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed."

    John 3:16 KJV, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life".

    Romans 3:23-24 NIV, "…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus".

    John 8:12 KJV, "I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life".

    Jesus is the only WAY to God, the TRUTH of salvation, and the Breath/Bread of LIFE.

    ACCEPT Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Sins separate us from God because He’s Holy. All sins will be forgiven and erased through faith in Christ Jesus. God ♥ you, is alive, merciful, faithful, truthful, and is waiting with His arms wide open FOR YOU! For Jesus did not come to establish a religion, but to become a mediator between God and men.

    Through the Grace of God, Jesus was given to us by paying the price at the Cross at Calvary. Repent and confess from your sins to Jesus and ask Him to forgive you. A sinner cannot save a sinner, only a sinless person can. That sinless Being is Jesus Christ Himself.

    Through the faith in Christ Jesus, the sick was healed; everywhere He went, He healed the blind, the mute, the deaf, the demon-possessed, raised the dead, as well as performed many miracles; He also walked on water, turned water into wine, calmed the storm with His command, and was raised up from the dead. Miracles are still being seen today! Jesus is our helper, our healer, our refuge/protection, and our strength for when time gets tough.

    God is standing and knocking at the door waiting for your answer right now because THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS COMING.

    For introverts, absolutely

  20. Valesca Murangi on February 17, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    I don’t know but been a Christian for long time and I learned to have discernment spirit because even in church people’s comes with wrong motives and end hearing the word of God and change their lives. So as Christian we should be afraid of talking to people or meet them because they are not Christian because our journey is to represent the light in the world and they have to see come by hearing and hearing the word of may not get to meet the godly man online dating but you may sow the salvation seed.because there a space of God in every soul on the planet.

  21. Adalia Vásquez on February 17, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    I just feel weird about dating online. It feels as though you are shopping for a spouse. I feel that meeting people in person is much easier, since you get to know the whole person and not just their profile picture/texts. I’ve also had some somewhat unpleasant experiences on christian dating sites. I’m praying that God will bring the right man in person and I continue to put myself out there and seek first the Kingdom of God!

  22. Claribel Maysonet on February 17, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    I went to verbal and mental abuse in my marriage and my parents too. so,this is my challenge.

  24. Diomelyn Simbajon on February 17, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    Thank you for your advice ❤❤❤

  25. Bob Bobbington on February 17, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    As Christian women are world leaders in divorce and broken homes, pretty sure God wants men to avoid them everywhere.

  26. Jannie Schlüter on February 17, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    Relationships are 99% time wasted and 1% hoped for the impossible.

  28. Bluish Aqua on February 17, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    I need someone who loves God more than me because I believe that he will be the best husband if he ever do. I pray that I will be married to a man from my church because I want to worship God with him.

  29. Young & Christian on February 17, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    I’d like to know which is better in the early stage of dating..getting to know the person as they are and seeing if we are comfortable with each other or getting to know their spiritual maturity to be sure we are equally yoked?

  30. Shalena Hackney on February 17, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    You’re amazing Mark oh my gosh you are GOD sent and always on time

  31. Jino Thomas on February 17, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    I want to date a christian women because I never dated any women in my life

  32. Kris Williams on February 17, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    I like the point about online dating. I think once you know who YOU are in Christ you can discern who you should give your time to in online dating. The setting (online vs traditional) may be different but your morals and values should remain the same.

  33. Lyne Rosie on February 17, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    this is amaizing i love…

  34. I Love Jesus Christ and Dog's on February 17, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    God bless you and your loved ones Mark

  35. Lewis Thomas on February 17, 2022 at 11:16 pm

    regular dating just doesn’t work for me, i’m 22 now and i can’t find any christian girls.. they’re all anti religion or laugh at my faith.. so i’ve turned to online

  36. Alicen Lynne on February 17, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    What are we supposed to do? Some of us are too old to go to the bar/club and have few friends. How are we supposed to meet people? Someone’s not going to fall in our laps!

  37. G S on February 17, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    Given up online dating. Not only does everyone live far, but you just don’t know who they really are. Are they really single? Are they really who they say they are? Bleh…

  38. Slaterguy on February 17, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Too many scammers in the online dating sites and that includes Christian dating sites. Buyer beware it is a big risk. There is nothing wrong with finding someone at your church.

  39. Tiffany Langhorne on February 17, 2022 at 11:20 pm

    I am almost 21 & I am working in an environment with only women (I’m a teacher) & I go to church where my college youth group consists of 4 guys & 3 of them are married. I have been single for nearly 6 months & I ended things on good terms with my ex so I have no attachments. I’ve been praying to God & preparing myself & I plan to continue doing that. I also haven’t been on a date in a long time & it didnt go too well! So, I’ve been looking to online dating & I have been worried because my friends feel like it’s a bad idea.

  40. Geradessiel Simon on February 17, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Practical opinions,makes reasonable sense,yet IN ALL our ways we should first seek….PRAY,we truly must be led by The Spirit of Truth!
    Many thanks for all your sacrifices!
    My love be with you in Christ!
