She rose to fame on the Lifetime reality series, Preachers’ Daughters.
During a Q&A on her Youtube channel, a fan wrote in and asked blogger Kolby Koloff, 23, for practical Christian dating advice.
“…My advice would be don’t chase after somebody who has a tattoo of a cross, but doesn’t actually bow down and surrender to the cross,” she said, for part of it.
While dating a person with tattoos is debatable depending on who you ask, Kolby brought up a good point.
As believers, we want to date a person who is truly on fire for God in their heart, and not just says they’re a Christian in name only. Actions are the evidence behind a person’s faith. Anyone can say anything. But it’s what they do that separates the wheat (true believers) from the tares (fake believers), according to Matthew 13:36-43. GotQuestions.org.
The North Carolina native, who has been open about her decision to remain abstinent until marriage, was later asked if she was a Christian because she was raised in a Christian home, or if she made the decision on her own.
Kolby admitted that being raised in a believing home set the foundation, but she “sought after” Christ by her own doing.
“There’s a saying…, ‘God doesn’t have grandchildren’, so it’s like, you’re not a Christian just because your parents are.”
And she’s right. No one can have a relationship with Jesus by their parent’s doing, or join God in Heaven because someone else in their family has a relationship with Him.
That’s a choice we have to make on our own. And obviously, God’s the right choice.
