Who is qualified for a Christian relationship?
Christian relationship in the most scenario has existed in the church more as a hidden or pretentious act rather than a valued behavior. Recently truth has become very accessible; such that a better solution would be to x-ray the situation properly.
Thus, one is qualified for a Christian relationship if he/she had secured a provable relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ.
