Courting verses dating Sexdating with free upgrde
As Christians, our primary purpose in life is to seek and serve God, and fulfill our destiny in Him. We need to find out what God's plan for relationships is, and then follow it. Let's study what we are doing now against what God has described in His word, and draw up a new standard. Other terms, such as 'betrothal' or even 'biblical dating' could be used, although they would possibly be confusing.
The current model that we are using is ineffective, at best. Dating was invented in the early part of this century.
Unfortunately, however, our culture teaches our singles to engage in multiple dating relationships as though it were a normal and useful practise.
The truth is, the modern dating system has only been around for less than a century.
The first is that we must separate from the world's view on dating because God's way contradicts the world's (2 Peter ).Prior to that time, marriage always involved much more input from the parents, and "trial relationships" leading up to marriage were not conducted at all.
