Christian start dating
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 does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
Do you want to have God at the center of your dating relationship?
Would you like God to influence the love you show another person?
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.
You see certain “role models” jumping from one dating relationship to another.
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.
This has caused tension, which time apart between dates has helped ameliorate.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
You should check your potential boyfriend against the values listed in 1 Corinthians. Go through the characteristics to measure your relationship.
Ask yourself if the two of you are patient and kind to one another. God is pretty picky on this one, and the Bible makes this issue very clear.
