The New Testament clearly teaches that sex outside of marriage is sinful (1 Corinthians 6:9-11,18-20; Hebrews 13:4). Since that is true, Christians who date will want to choose activities in public places where conversations and healthy activities can be carried on without becoming involved in too much intimacy.
Keep the lust in check and the touching to a minimum (Matthew -29). Since dating may eventually lead to marriage, we probably should not begin dating too early or date one person too long, unless we are ready to commit to a lifetime relationship.
They seek relationships with people who will support them in their walk with God.
They seek activities through which they can both get to know their date and act in a way that is pleasing to God. Just remember to take Jesus along with you everywhere you go!
Marriages were typically arranged for the parties involved. God still commanded husbands and wives to love one another and submit to one another’s needs and interests (Ephesians -33).
Though people in Bible times didn’t really date, there are some biblical principles that should govern our dating activities today.
It is good to be friends with lots of different people.
So glorify God in your body." 1 Corinthians -20 ESV "I am writing to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning.
Instead, good dates might be to sporting events, high quality movies, a nice dinner, a good concert, a church activity, a museum, or a service activity.
Do the kinds of things that you, as a Christian, feel good about doing.
Next, since the Scriptures teach us that it is important to form our primary relationships with people who will help us spiritually, we should date people who want to do the will of God.
Since we eventually marry someone we date, we should not date those who lack Christian values (2 Corinthians ff)..
