While you may not be looking at marrying anyone at the moment, it should always be in the back of your head.
Why get involved emotionally with someone that you should not marry?
This does not mean you cannot be friends with that person, but you should not date them.
This also means that you should avoid “missionary dating,” which is dating a non-believer in the hopes that you can convert him or her.
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.
There are all kinds of advice out there about dating today, but a lot of it is about dating in the world rather than Christian dating.
Christians need to have a different attitude toward dating.
God calls us to love one another, but the scripture is clear that He asks us to be careful.Non-Christians have a different perspective on dating.You see the magazines, TV shows, and movies that tell you how you’re young, and you should date a lot of people before you get married.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.
