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.
He is clear on whom you should date and why you should date.
When it comes to Christian dating, you live according to a different standard – God’s. There are some solid reasons why God asks us to live a certain way, and dating is no different.
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.
Your intentions may be noble, but the relationships rarely work out.
It is culture and society that place an emphasis on race.
Be careful of recreational dating, where you date for the sake of dating.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.You see certain “role models” jumping from one dating relationship to another.Yet God has more in store for you than just jumping from one 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.
