Some family and friends have had this ongoing, albeit playful, discussion about the concept of “soul mates.” Is this rooted in biblical concepts or has it been hijacked by romantics of our age? We’ve arrived at three possible answers:
1.) The concept of “soul mates” is essentially biblical. Eve was made specifically for Adam, brought to him, and fit perfectly with him. Likewise, God has created someone who fits perfectly with you and He works out your destiny to bring you together.
2.) The concept of “soul mates” is unbiblical. Relationships are entirely random and utilitarian. Any number of people could make “the perfect spouse.”
3.) “Soul mates” are possible, but not guaranteed; they are contingent upon factors both in and outside your control. Relationships have the potential to become a “perfect fit,” but are conditioned by number of factors, both human and divine.
What do you think? Which one of these three answers is closest to what you believe is true? Or is there another category we are missing?
