If Jesus is important to the person you are crushing on, then Christian pick-up lines might go a long way in facilitating a great conversation between you and him/her. Talking to someone you have been secretly admiring is not the easiest thing to do and it’s okay you are agitated about it. What’s not is forsaking a chance at love because you are worried things wouldn’t go your way. What you should keep in mind is that even when you express your feelings and get rejected, it doesn’t mean you are inadequate. It only means that just as you are definitely not attracted to everyone you’ve come across in life; you are one of the many people your crush isn’t attracted to, at least romantically.
While shying away from someone you have feelings for would keep you guessing what could have been if you took the shot, facing your fears would surely help you attain a new level of self-confidence that can impact every aspect of your life in positive ways. To get it done; fix a deadline and then do whatever it takes to improve on your communication skills and looks. Learn what you can about him/her and then make your move when the opportunity presents itself. To start the conversation, you can use any of the following pick-up lines or go through the list and come up with something unique for yourself
Christian Pick-up Lines for Men
1. Let’s remix the Songs of Solomon together, we’d make a great jam.
The Song of Solomon, also called The Songs of Songs, is one of the unique books of the Bible. In fact, you’d be surprised by what you’ll find in the book the first time you read it. It generally revolves around love and is quite explicit with its description of beauty and sexual intimacy.
2. Your name must be Faith, you are the evidence of things I’ve hoped for.
This Christian pick-up line is a way of telling your crush she is the woman of your dreams. Having Faith in God is another basic fundament of the religion. People that practice it are urged to completely believe in God and trust He would work things out for them. Even when facing a life-threatening situation, a Christian is expected to hold on to this belief. In the New Testament of the Bible, Hebrews 11:1 defined faith as “the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen”.
3. This must be another transfiguration because you are glowing!
This Christian pick-up line is derived from the transfiguration story of Jesus as the Bible narrates in the book of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Jesus went up the mountain to pray with three of his disciples where he transformed and emitted bright rays of light. The line essentially compliments your crush, if she is familiar with the transfiguration story, she will definitely open up for a conversation.
4. The devil has been lying to me too much of late, let’s hook up and pray about it.
Several passages of the Bible refer to the devil as a liar and the Christian faith consider him as the father of lies. So with this line, you can start a wholesome conversation with your crush that borders on literally every life struggle. Also, prayer is one of the core fundaments of the faith. Christians are encouraged to pray without season and to find a praying partner with whom they would encourage each other to stand firm in the faith and fight against the common enemy – the devil. As such, the part that asks for prayer meetings is a sly way to as the person out for a “prayer date”.
5. I don’t want to be nailed on the cross but I can take a few strokes for you.
Christians believe Jesus loved humanity so much he chooses to die to redeem and return them to God. He was crucified for this after he was severely whipped. This pick-up line refers to that. Essentially you are saying you would take some pain to show your crush how much you like them. It’s a delightful way to start a conversation with a Christain brethren you admire.
6. Did you know why King Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines? He was trying to find someone like you.
King Solomon of the Bible is known for his massive wealth, wisdom, as the son of David, and for his enormous appetite for women. As it was recorded, he was husband to as many as 700 women and yet a lover to 300 concubines. Given that, it is not hard to see why this is one of the best Christian pick-up lines.
7. You have one of my ribs and I really have to get it back
The second chapter of the first book of the Bible, Genesis, relates that God created a woman for the first man, Adam; after He saw that it was not good for Adam to be alone. For companionship; God created Eve for Adam. He created her from a rib He took from Adam. When God brought Eve to Adam, he described her as the bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh. Therefore, if you use this pick-up line, you are saying your crush is the God-chosen partner for you.
8. Are you Rachel? Because I would serve your father for 14 years to be with you.
Rachel was a Biblical figure, the second and favorite wife of Jacob. After Jacob fell in love with Rachel, he made a pact with her father, Laban, to serve him for seven years in exchange for Rachel’s hand in marriage. But on the night of the wedding, Laban deceived him into marrying Rachel’s older sister, Leah. In the end, Jacob had to serve Laban for another seven years to marry Rachel. It is one of the Biblical stories that illustrate the prize for love and the pick-up line is the Christian way of telling your crush you’d do anything for her.
9. I’m a man led by the Spirit, He led me straight to you
Every Christian ought to know what it means to be led by the Spirit of God. People who practice the faith are encouraged by their spiritual leaders to submit totally to the will of God. This means allowing the Spirit of God to direct their paths in life and day-to-day activities. Given that, it is easy to see why the pick-up line is a good conversation starter.
10. How about we break bread and drink some wine together?
The Holy Communion ritual in Christianity commemorates Jesus’s Last Supper with his disciples. According to the Bible, He fed them bread which He called His body, and wine which He called His blood. To this day, Christians continue to eat bread and drink wine to remember and honor the ultimate prize Jesus paid to redeem men to God. The pick-up line is a great way to ask a Christian out for a date. It’s like the Jesus way to ask someone to grab a coffee with you.
11. I feel strong around you, are you Joy?
The origin of this Christian pick-up line can be traced to the book of Nehemiah 8:10 which partly reads: “…the joy of the Lord is your strength”. It is probably the most popular of all verses in the bible that talk about finding strength in God.
12. Hey, I think you should become a part of my purpose-driven life.
Christians are encouraged to live a life of purpose that is aligned with the will of God in their lives. Essentially, this means that you have to discover your unique purpose in life as designed by God, and as well contribute to spreading the Gospel of Christ which is the common purpose of all Christians. It also means submitting to the leadership of the Holy Spirit in everything you do.
13. Let’s get lunch together, Jesus paid the price.
This Christian pick-up line is a funny way to ask your crush out. If she goes out with you, you should cover the bills as you inferred she didn’t have to worry about the bills. Please, don’t tell the waiter “Jesus paid the price” when it’s time to pay.
14. Your sink is as smooth as a baby’s bottom, were you just Born Again?
The born-again doctrine of the Christian faith originates from the conversation between Jesus and a Jewish pharisee named Nicodemus. As related in the book of John 3: 3 – 5, Jesus had proclaimed that “…no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again”. The rebirth didn’t make any sense to Nicodemus and Jesus explained that one must be “…born of water and the Spirit” to enter the kingdom of God. Most denominations of the religion have upheld that Jesus was referring to baptism and receiving the Holy Spirit.
15. Can I talk to you about Jesus, and how your neck is like the tower of David.
This is an effective and interesting way to start a conversation with your crush if she is a Christian. You can fine-tune the latter part of this Christian pick-up line to make it unique and peculiar to your crush, depending on the feature/s you find most attractive in her and would like to compliment. For instance, if she has fine eyes or beautiful hair, you could say:
- Can I talk to you about Jesus, and how your eyes are like the gateway to the hidden treasures of the Most High?
- Hi, let’s talk about Jesus, and how your hair flows like the rivers of living water.
If you are not comfortable with making suggestive comments about her looks, you should try lines like:
- Please, tell me about Jesus; and why I have been thinking so much about you lately.
Christian Pick-up Lines for Women
16. My phone has a Bible, I was going through the book of Numbers and I realized I don’t have yours.
The book of Numbers is the fourth book of the Bible, it essentially explores the history of Israelites as they wandered through the wilderness for years. This Christian pick-up line is very effective in kicking off a conversation with your crush; more than that, it’s a unique way of asking for the person’s number.
17. I’ve been walking around you, how long does it take before you fall?
This may seem a creepy thing to say to someone you’ve been admiring and want to converse with, but it is a good Christian pick-up line for women. It is derived from the Battle of Jericho as narrated in the Bible. The book of Joshua related that the wall of Jericho fell after the Israelites marched around it for seven days, giving way for them to take the city. So the pick-up line is like asking: what would it take to win your heart?
18. I could feel the Holy Spirit burning inside of you, it’s really hot in here!
In Christianity, the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, a doctrine that upholds that there is only one God but He expresses Himself in three persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. It is believed that a Christian filled with the Holy Spirit is a fiery Christian whose only concern is doing the will of God. This line alludes to the fiery nature of such a Christian in complimenting the looks of one’s crush. You can think of it as the Christain way of saying “you are hot”.
19. You are the only man I see in the world, are you Adam?
According to the Bible, Adam was the first man God created, and He later created Eve, the first woman to keep him company in the Garden of Eden. It would be difficult to not gain the attention of any Christian man with this line, it’s a good conversation starter.
20. You were made out of Water, Jesus turned you into fine.
The faith revolves around Jesus who gave up his life to reconcile men to God. For Christians, anyone who receives Jesus as his/her lord and personal savior would amongst other things, experience a transformation of his life for good. This pick-up line alludes to that and the first Miracle the Son of God performed. According to the Bible, in the Gospel of John, Jesus transformed water into wine at a wedding in Cana. “Wine”, “Fine”; it’s a play on words, the life-changing experience that comes with accepting Jesus, and a funny way to strike up a conversation with a Christian you intend to woo.
21. I’ve been blessed with the gift of prophecy and I see you in my future
As a Christian, it is expected of you to have the fruits of the Holy Spirit and as well quest for the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The fruits entail values like self-control, gentleness, faithfulness, kindness, love, peace, and more. The gifts include that of speaking in different kinds of tongues, the working of miracles, the gift of healings, the gift of prophecy, and what have you. The gift of prophecy is often regarded to be one of the greatest because of what the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 14:1 – “Pursue love and desire spiritual gifts, and especially that you may prophesy” (CSB).
22. I have been storing up treasure in heaven, my mansion there is massive and I’d like to share it with you.
This Christian pickup line came from two books of the Bible’s New Testament. In the sixth chapter of the book of Matthew, Jesus admonished people to not store up treasures for themselves on earth but in heaven where it’s most secure. In the book of John 14:2, Jesus also talked about having many mansions in heaven.
23. God takes only 10% of my income, let’s make a paradise together with what’s left.
In the Bible, God instructed the Israelites to bring in 10 percent of their agricultural produce to the temple of the lord. Christians continue to practice this to date, albeit voluntarily. It remains an important doctrine in many denominations of the faith. While this makes a good Christian pick-up line, it must be said in a way that wouldn’t connote arrogance, that’s not the first impression you want to make on someone you crushing on.
24. Maybe I’m one of His angels, I’ve been watching you for a long, long, time.
The bible made several references to God’s protection and it all boils down to His faithfulness in keeping those who call on His name and obey his commands safe. Luke 4:10 is one of the multiple Bible verses that talks about God’s protection and it reads thus: “…God will put his angels in charge of you to watch over you carefully” (ISV). With this line, you are letting your crush know you’ve been admiring them from a distance. If it didn’t creep them out right away, it will buy you some time to converse and sell yourself more.
25. Jesus said “It Is Finished”, so let me get your number (wink).
When Jesus was crucified, he uttered several words on the cross which Christians have come to associate with deep meanings. According to the book of John chapter 19 vs 30, one of the words he said was “It is finished”. Generally, the denominations of the faith agree that Christ meant he had paid the price in full to redeem men to God. But in the context of this piece, you are saying Jesus has done all the work for you and you only need to get your crush’s number to get on with planning the first date.
26. I’ve given my life to Christ, but He wouldn’t mind sharing it with you.
For most Christians, what defines their faith is the conscious decision to accept and proclaim Christ as their savior. They believe it is the only way to God and eternal life. Given that, this is a fine Christian pick-up line. You are not only telling your crush you like her but also letting them know are a serious Christian, a quality they are most likely looking for in a partner.
27. Thou Shall Not Steal, give me back my heart
The Ten Commandments, as outlined in the Old Testament of the bible, encompasses the things that are considered to be sinful in Christianity. “Thou shall not steal” is one of the clear-cut among the commands. Things may not work out in the end but it is hard to imagine a Christian man that wouldn’t pay some attention to you when you say this to him.
28. Behold David! The man after my own heart.
As you would find in the bible, God described David as a man after His heart, the chosen king to rule over His people. Having that in mind, this Christian pick-up line is a great way for any woman to strike up a conversation with that Christian brother she has been admiring. It is an outright way of telling the fellow that you like him and that he has all the qualities you want in a partner.
Flirty Christian Pick-Up Lines
The Christian faith frowns at sexual immorality of all kinds. So any form of flirting with sexual undertones is sinful as the bible advises Christians to “flee from sexual immorality”. In fact, it went as far as distinguishing it as the only sin one can commit against his/her body.
Even though some theologians have contended that the bible never said anything about consensual, premarital sex, it is widely held that several passages of the bible, in both the Old and New Testaments, made it clear that any sexual activities outside marriage are sinful.
With that in mind, you should really think twice before you use any of the following flirty Christian pick-up lines for striking up a conversation with your crush. If the person is a Conservative Christians, you might be seen as lustful and a temptation to flee from; you wouldn’t want that to happen, would you?
29. Holy kiss or kiss of love, which do you want first? I have to greet you.
Things might quickly go wrong and you find yourself facing the law for sexual harassment. So you have to be careful if you must use this pick-up line. If you don’t go overboard with it, it can make the first time you are talking to your crush a memorable moment.
While it might seem creepy to go about asking for a kiss, this line originates from two passages in the bible: 1st Peter 5:14 and 2nd Corinthians 13:12. The first partly reads: “…Great one another with a kiss of love.” And the latter says “Greet one another with a holy kiss”.
30. Part the red sea and I will explore the wilderness with you
The parting of the Red Sea is one of the most significant stories in the Bible. In the book of Exodus, the holy book related that the Israelites were trapped at the sea after leaving Egypt for the promised land. With the Egyptian army coming after them to recapture their slaves, Moses raised his staff towards heaven and God parted the sea for the Israelites to walk through it.
After they safely crossed to the other side, Moses again raised his staff and the sea closed, thereby drowning the Egyptians who were after them. But then, the Israelites would wound up wandering in the wilderness for 40 years. The pickup line is pretty innocent but can be found to be very flirty, especially when a man uses it on a woman.
31. Take me to the banqueting house and let your banner over me be love. (Song of Solomon 2:4)
As stated earlier, the Song of Solomon is regarded as the bible’s book of love. Reading through it, one would find so many flirty pick-up lines to use for kickstarting a conversation with their crush. Below are more pick-up lines culled from the book. Feel free to add some dramatic flavor as you use them:
- You have ravished my heart with one look of your eyes, what’s your name oh daughter of Zion? (Song of Solomon 4:9)
- How about you come to my garden and eat its pleasant fruits? (Songs of Solomon 4:16)
- “I am dark, but lovely, O daughter of Jerusalem, like the tents of Kedar, like the curtains of Solomon”. (Song of Solomon 1:5)
- “Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is as strong as death…”. (Song of Solomon 8:6).
32. Your skin would taste like Milk and Honey, take me to the promised land.
Every Christian should know what the Promised Land entails. Often described as a place flowing with milk and honey, God, according to the bible, promised the land to Abraham and his descendants. When the Israelites left Egypt, they embarked on a journey to take the promised land and later conquered and occupied Canaan which is believed to be the fulfillment of the promise as portrayed in the book of Deuteronomy. As a pick-up line, it is not difficult to see how this is flirty.
33. His presence radiates in your legs like the pillar of fire.
You don’t need to be told how this is a flirty Christian pick-up line. It originated from a story that relates the manifestation of the presence of God amongst the Israelites as they travel from Egypt through the wilderness to the Promised Land. As you would find in the book of Exodus, God manifested as a pillar of fire and a pillar of cloud so that they could travel by day or night. Through these manifestations, He led them through the journey and also reminded them of His presence among them.
34. How about we have a prayer meeting? I’m certainly willing to lay hands on you.
The laying on of hand is a common practice among various Christian doctrines; from Pentecostalism to Mormonism, Catholicism, Evangelicalism, Anglicanism, Baptists, and what have you. It is associated with receiving the Holy Spirit, praying for the sick, baptism, confirmation, the ordination of clergy, and even for casting away demons.
Using this pick-up line suggests you are proposing physical intimacy. In a very Conservative church, the prayer meeting you asked for might happen but the laying of hands would be on you; they’d be casting out the lust of the flesh that has captured your soul.
35. If you’re Potiphar’s wife and I’m Joseph, the Israelites would never become slaves in Egypt.
The Joseph story is one of the most interesting tales in the bible. He was one of the sons of Jacob and was sold into slavery by his half-brothers who were envious of him. He ended up in Egypt where he was sold to a prominent figure named Potiphar. Joseph became Potiphar’s personal servant and later, the person that runs his home.
Potiphar’s wife became fond of Joseph and tried to seduce him; he refused her and she accused him of rape which landed Joseph in prison. From being a prisoner, he became the second in command in the whole of Egypt and eventually brought his relatives to Egypt where they became slaves many years later.
Based on the foregoing, this Christian pick-up line goes against the teachings of the religion in terms of sexual immorality.
There are many things the Christian faith would frown at but having a romantic partner before marriage isn’t one of them. As long as the relationship is a godly one, with the parties involved not engaging in any form of sexual immorality, a Christian can have a romantic partner. Also, there is no prohibition for a Christian to woo someone s/he likes in church. You only have to keep in mind that you are in a place people consider to be sacred. And understand that dating a Christian excludes any form of physical intimacy.
If you are seeking a relationship where you would be physically affectionate with your partner before marriage, then you might have to consider looking for someone outside the Christian faith. In fact, most religions, to the best of our knowledge, condemn premarital sex.
A study on religion and sexual behaviors investigated how identifying with any of the world’s major religions – Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, and Buddhism – influences the likelihood of premarital sex. Amongst other things, it found that married Hindus and Muslims are less likely to report having had sex before marriage than Christians and Jews. Apart from Buddhists, it was also found that married Muslims are less likely to report extramarital sex compared to other religions.
