The most important points John and Kerri drove home were: where you need to be in your walk with Christ to be able to have a successful relationship, the purposes of dating in a Christian way, and ways you enact a healthy and Godly partnership.You need to be fully satisfied in Christ before you begin to pursue another person.
However, if you are a Christian, and you choose to date, here are some ways that you can honor God and your date while enjoying your time together.
One year ago, I never thought that I would ever try out online dating, but there was something about my 20th birthday that changed me.
Looking at some typical dating practices of many Christians helps to better explain their perspective on the process.
First, in many cases the date may take place during a church-related activity.
What is known as modern dating does not really take place during a courtship.
And then there are the arranged marriages that some Christians believe are the right way to go. These are just a few of the different Christian perspectives on dating.The two individuals get to know one another while interacting with others of the same faith.Fun, lighthearted outings, such as a trip to an amusement park or a basketball game, are also opportunities for two people who share a common faith to become acquainted.When the two individuals know one another better, then they might decide on a quieter atmosphere for the date, in order to talk alone.Many Christians believe in abstinence before marriage and even no-touch love as a way to avoid getting swept up in powerful emotions that may cause them to compromise their beliefs.Treat them with the respect you would as through you knew they were destined to be with someone else, after all they be. You don’t know how someone will grow and change over time.
