Christian dating physical relationship Live sex chat phone messenger
Are we supposed to be actively looking for a spouse? I have recently enetered a relationship with a christian girl, and both her and i have a growing concern about having a relationship that pleases GOd…Courtship advocates claim that courtship allows for the two people to truly get to know each other in a more platonic setting without the pressures of physical intimacy or emotions clouding their view. For daters, spending time alone with a member of the opposite sex whom we find attractive can present temptations that can be very hard to resist.The Christian dating couple must have boundaries in place and be committed to not crossing them.
"Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" (1 Corinthians , NKJV).If a couple is never alone together, they never have that one-on-one opportunity to relate and get to know one another in emotional and spiritual intimacy.In addition, some courtship situations have led to borderline “arranged marriages” by the parents and have resulted in resentment in one or both of the young people.As one poet has said,"dating is a dangerous game, temptation should be its name!" Your question sounds very much like"how far can we go? Unfortunately, while we would like a definitive answer, the bible doesn’t lay down a set of hard and fast specific boundaries, but rather gives a set of ‘principles’ for relationships.
Finally, care must be taken to avoid the pitfall of believing one’s personal preference—dating or courting—is the “only way” and looking down upon those who make the opposite choice.
