Bible say about dating
But this storm is as real and destructive as any of those we talked about above. Yeah, I know the Bible doesn't have the word "dating" in it. The way you do things now in your dating relationship will influence the way you react to the one you marry. Which leads us to our first principle on teen dating. God's Word clearly tells us to stay away from close relationships with unbelievers. Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? Dating shouldn't mean "mini-marriage." You aren't really married, so don't act like it. If this isn't enough to convince you, then look at what the Bible says about it. If you look in your Bible...you'll notice I didn't quote verse one (1.) The reason...? You're "young adults." And some day, you're going to move out on your own..from under your parents authority..live your own life. But as a teen, should you completely lose dating and find other "safer" options? The best and only place to go for good advice about teen dating is the Truth found in the Bible, the Word of God. or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? Hurrying things won't help your dating relationship. And it seems to have the worst consequences in teen dating relationships. Sure it was in a different time..what if dinosaurs were still walking the earth when your parents were dating (just kidding! And they know more than you..matter what you think! If you've made a decision for Christ..should live for Him. You need to listen to His voice in all walks of life...including teen dating.
In fact anything that starts that "fire of passion" should send you to your spiritual fire extinguisher..it out before someone gets burned!!!
Marriage shows the relationship between Christ and the church. Two sinful people are united into one and they commit to each other in everything. Run to Christ and whoever is keeping up with you introduce yourself. You will start saying, “maybe I’m too this, maybe I’m too that, maybe I need to start looking like this, maybe I need to buy that.” That is idolatry and of the devil. He wants you to keep on knocking and one day He is going to say, “enough, you want it? If she grows feelings for you she is going to be hurt if you decide that you never really liked her.
It shows how Christ loved the church and laid down His life for her. No one besides the Lord will come before the person you are going to marry. You have to say no to everyone else when it comes to your spouse. Do you listen to His conviction or do you do what you want to do? Not only are you to lead each other by the way you live your life, but you have to worship together. Never entertain a relationship just to have something in the meantime.
If the person claims to be Christian, but lives like an unbeliever God didn’t send you that person. No type of ungodly person can do God’s will in marriage. Many people think they are in love for reasons such as the person’s looks, communication skills, etc. Do you believe God has called you to commit your life to this person in marriage? For example, sex, physical attraction, looking at other couples, constantly listening to love music, fear, constantly watching love movies, etc.8. That’s his precious little daughter that you want to take out. Listen to her, respect her, and always keep her into consideration. I don’t believe kissing is sinful, but I believe it can be. Anything that leads you to indulge in sexual thoughts is sinful. It’s not good to seek a relationship with someone you are not physically attracted to.
“But he’s nice.” If you haven’t consulted God about it that means that you haven’t asked Him if the person you have met is the person He wants you to marry. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 “Love is patient, love is kind. “Oh Lord may this relationship honor your name” and this should be our mindset going into marriage. She is always going to be his precious little baby in his eyes. Now Imagine how much greater is the love of a holy God. She’s not a husbands must live with your wives in an understanding manner, as with a most delicate partner. If you feel the temptation just stop don’t lie to yourself. Kissing for a long period of time with someone who you are not married to is wrong, it is a form of foreplay, and it will cause you to fall. Waiting and disciplining yourself in many areas will make your sexual relationship in marriage more unique, special, godly, and intimate. This is something that you should really pray about and listen to the Lord. I’ve heard some guys say, “I can handle it I’m strong enough.” No you’re not! If God blesses you with a very beautiful godly woman or handsome man that is OK, but looks are not everything. Look for godliness because a husband is to one day be your spiritual leader.
