Bible courtship dating
• Although they are committed to one another as “boyfriend and girlfriend” they most often end their relationship after several months when one “feels a crush” for someone else.Thus, the relationship ends with at least one of the individuals feeling devastated and wounded especially because of soul ties that were created from sexual intimacy.Dating I have taught each of my five children the difference between dating and courtship.Dating is an unbiblical method crafted by the world with no boundaries or ethics with the following assumed rules and values: • Two people can mutually claim to be “boyfriend and girlfriend” if they are physically attracted to one another and (this is the litmus test) have a crush and claim each other for themselves in a special relationship.• People should be taught to back off and not run to a person to whom they are attracted.
Yet dating has caused the most havoc, destroyed countless lives, resulted in unwanted pregnancies and abortions, and even split churches apart.
• Youth should make chastity vows before they enter high school.
With these vows they should pledge to their parents before God they will not give their bodies over unless they are married to the other person.
Although the above three points are generalizations, they are true depictions of most cases regarding dating; its devastating results on the human soul cannot be fully measured!
Even worse, the double-mindedness that results from numerous sexual encounters with various people carries into future relationships and even marriage.Since most of the church doesn’t teach on this subject, a vacuum exists resulting in our teenagers adopting the worldview of popular culture.
