You do not need to date a lot of people – just the right one. The word “love” is thrown around with little thought. We live for God’s love first and foremost, but we also live for the love of others.
While there are many definitions of love, 1 Corinthians tells us how God defines love.
While most people have differing opinions about dating, it is one area of the Bible where there is not a lot of information.
However, Christian teens can get some idea of God’s expectations from certain Scripture verses: 1 Corinthians 13:4-7: “Love is patient, love is kind.
It is love that should drive Christian teens to date, but it should not be the shallow version of love. You should know the person you are dating and know their beliefs.
You should check your potential boyfriend against the values listed in 1 Corinthians. Go through the characteristics to measure your relationship.
The choice is up to you and your parents, but Christian teens should still know God’s perspective on dating.
He is clear on whom you should date and why you should date.
When it comes to Christian dating, you live according to a different standard – God’s. There are some solid reasons why God asks us to live a certain way, and dating is no different.
Some Christians have even gotten married to non-believers, hoping that they can convert their spouse, but often the relationships end up in disaster.
On the other hand, some Christian teens believe that interracial dating is inappropriate due to the scriptures that tell Christians to avoid being yoked to non-Christians.
