A dear brother in the Lord named Roberto has a huge fascination with cars, especially sports cars, like the Camaro and any model Porsche. In his native country of Brazil, he and his buddies often spend a Saturday afternoon test driving new cars at a local dealership just for fun. Modern dating was successfully launched during the sexual revolution and spiritual mayhem of the s and many of the principles of biblical dating courtship rapidly became less prominent and less important in our society. The practice of courtship offered structure which allowed both parties to get to know each other before encountering emotional and physical entanglements.
While many are in it just for the fun and physical, not everyone is so laid-back about it. Unfortunately, survey after survey indicates that many of those who say they are Christian are following on this path right along with the masses.
Certainly, the Lord is not pleased, but rather deeply grieved, by the casual, drive-by dating scene that professing Christians are immersed in and with which they are seemingly quite comfortable. A young single man who desired someday to be married came to our recent Annual Conference and asked about the biblical view of dating, courtship and finding a spouse.
The Bible provides authoritative guidance for any sincere, conscientious believer about how to best glorify the Lord in every area of our lives. The contemporary dating scene affords countless opportunities to meet members of the opposite sex—who may or may not be a potential marriage partner. The problem is, it is overwhelmingly driven by pure lust and self-centeredness and is often emotionally, physically and spiritually destructive to one or both parties. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.
One should ask for much grace, wisdom and patience to meet another single, godly person of the opposite sex.
When choosing a spouse, earnest Christians should consider these two passages of Scripture among others which stress how important it is for any two Christians to be on the same spiritually:. To avoid getting into an ungodly trap or becoming a stumbling block to one another, a single man and woman must also be purposeful from the onset.
Is my purpose to please and glorify God by serving others, or is my motive to get something for myself? Is my interest in dating to have fun and be entertained, or is it to glorify God and serve others? Establishing good physical and emotional boundaries will help both parties maintain the utmost level of purity. Romans Simply believe Him for this, and you will see the Lord bless you in ways you could never think or imagine.
