Christian Pick-Up Lines

Tony Myles —  August 5, 2013 — 17 Comments

Back in my single days, I certainly had my share of cheesy pick-up lines. They ranged from flattering things I heard in songs (“Heaven must be missing an angel  ’cause you’re here with me right now.”) to quick blurbs inspired by the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (“Girl, if you was gravy I would sop you up with a biscuit!”)

(I didn’t say they actually worked.)

christianpickuplinesI’m sure you’ve noticed that being a Christian creates its own subculture of references and “isms.” I wonder if you’ve ever heard or said something as ridiculous as this when hormones meet the holy:

    • “I read the Bible daily. My favorite book is Numbers. Speaking of numbers, can I have yours?”
    • “My spiritual gifts are prophecy and discernment, which means I have a double-revelation that God wants us together.”
    • “Would you like to get into the Word with me? Great. This is my car, and I call it ‘Word’ Where to?”
    • “My multiple e-Bibles take up 85% of my iPod memory. I’ll let some love songs about you have the other 15%.”
    • “Girl/Boy, you are so unblemished that I would sacrifice you.”
    • “You make me want to be a better tither.”
    • “I’m here on a mission trip. But if we can’t be together, I’ll be mission you.”
    • “I’m praying for you. Not just for you, but ***FOR*** you.”
    • “As Christians, shouldn’t we honor all Scripture? Let’s start with 2 Corinthians 13:12
    • “You must be a Bible verse, because I can’t stop memorizing you.”
    • “You… complete me. That is, after Jesus completes me. You’re like the gluten in my communion bread.”
    • “How about we go back to my place? My accountability partner is there.”
    • I’d marry Leah if it meant I’d also get to marry you.”
    • “God told me I can break my fast for you.”
    • “For you, I’d start saying ‘Oh My Gosh’.”
    • “What do you say you and I take up a love offering?”
    • “I’m just curious… what’s your Promise Ring size?”
    • “Wouldn’t it be sad if our clothes weren’t next to each other’s in the rapture?”
    • “Your name must be Milk or Honey… ‘cuz you feel like something I was promised.”
    • “You and I are loaves and fish. Just imagine if we came together and gave ourselves to Jesus.”
    • “Hey, look! Matching Bible covers!”
    • “How about you and I go light a candle together?”
    • “What God thinks about me is infinitely more important than what others think about me. So, what do you think of me?”
    • “Don’t walk away, babe. You may not think I’m perfect but Jesus thinks I’m to die for.”

  1. If I walk around you seven times, will you fall for me?

  2. Not exactly a pickup line, but one of my students at a recent Christian conference approached a girl this way – he started a contact in his phone with the name “Beautiful Creation” and then handed her the phone and asked her to put in her number. He got it, the number was real, and he has been texting her and calling her multiple times per week since.

  3. “Hello my name is Will, God’s will”

  4. We recently had this discussion in youth. One of my students said…
    “Baby did you fall from heaven…….because your face is messed up!”

  5. Are you hot or is that just the Holy Spirit burning inside you?

  6. “You make me want to be a better tither” … made me laugh out loud :-)

    I heard Jesus called you. Mind if I do the same?

    Carmen;

    “Hey, look! matching Bible covers!” is one of my favorites it sounds so romantic. Do Connection Church pastored by Myles connects people to Jesus or each other????

  9. Approach the back of a girl and look at the tag of their shirt, and when they turn around and look at you, say “made from heaven”
