Guide to christian dating
While most people have differing opinions about dating, it is one area of the Bible where there is not a lot of information.
However, Christian teens can get some idea of God’s expectations from certain Scripture verses: 1 Corinthians 13:4-7: “Love is patient, love is kind.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (NIV) These three scriptures give insight into the Christian dating life.
According to Genesis, a man will leave home to marry one woman to become one flesh.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
There are all kinds of advice out there about dating today, but a lot of it is about dating in the world rather than Christian dating.
Christians need to have a different attitude toward dating.
