Biblical view of dating
• There are no boundaries or ethics in this type of relationship.
Or, it is a mistake to marry a person for their personality when their spiritual life is a mess, etc.• 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.• Youth should be taught to have greater criteria beyond physically attraction.
They should be taught what to look for in a lifelong partner: someone who has God-given aspirations with their career, an education, the right concepts of family and God, the ability to handle money well, connected to a local church, etc.
Dating is revolutionized if the following guidelines are followed: • Dating should only take place in the context of having an accompanying chaperone with young couples. Groups can go to a movie or have an outing, or go for dinner so that two people can sit together and get to know one another in the safety of other trusted believers.
