Dating versus courting
If we follow His plan for us we remain free from suffering and disease.
In today’s society most Christian people are different with their values and morals and this is how dating got started. Godly courtship has principles that work for building healthy relationships with the opposite sex and for preserving marriage.
The process by which unmarried persons of the opposite sex get to know each other has evolved over the years.
Modern dating seems to have replaced the courting process that was standard in decades past.
When we look at both of these styles of “getting to know people” and “having friendships” at face value, it appears they are the same.
But Godly courtship is far superior to dating because it is scripturally sound and does not hurt people.
We should think pure thoughts of the opposite sex and respect them for who they are, not what we can receive from them.
When it gets to the point of obsessing over a person with lust and desire and flirting with them it has gone too far.
He does not awaken lustful desire in a lady and does not disrespect or defraud her by having sex with her.Most of you think flirting is harmless, but it is a deceiving practice and should not be entertained until there is a commitment to marriage, at the very least.“But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart”.The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.” (1 John -17) To read more Christian based articles and books, check out Angie and Frank's Ministries.
