Teenage dating from a christian perspective
However, even among Christians, there are differences as to whether you should or should not date.
The choice is up to you and your parents, but Christian teens should still know God’s perspective on dating.
If you want to shoot for a lifelong, God-honoring union with your best friend, then that is when you know it's time to start a romance (Genesis ; Matthew 19:5).
Philippians 2:3-5 When we talk to kids about dating, we can help them set the biblical standard of considering another person’s interest above themselves, and that love means wanting the very best for that person. He is kind, good-looking, smart, and a great soccer player. David has Jesus Christ living inside him by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Parents and youth workers can play an important role in equipping kids to navigate the dating years.
Here are some things we can do: Far too many Christian adolescents don’t have a clue that there is a better way to relate to the opposite sex than what the world shows us. This means that we are called to treat the opposite sex with a special kind of respect because Christ lives within them.
Love, dating and relating to the opposite sex are important factors in living out the "Purity Code".
How kids relate to the opposite sex and how they eventually date will determine the success of their relationships and say a lot about their Christian commitment.
