Christian code of conduct for dating
Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place.
(Ephesians 5:3-4) God designed sex for the sacred union of marriage, and reserves it for that union.
Sex is designed to be the joining of two persons, of two spirits, not just two bodies.
Sex should be giving to someone to whom I’m 100% committed (as measured by the state of legal marriage), not taking from someone to whom I’m uncommitted or partially committed. He who has clean hands and a pure heart.” (Psalm 24:3-4) "If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.” (Psalm ) "If anyone turns a deaf ear to the law, even his prayers are detestable.” (Proverbs 28:9) "When I called, they did not listen; so when they called, I would not listen,’ says the LORD Almighty.” (Zechariah ) Sexual purity is inseparable from a committed Christian life. Don’t kid yourself that it can never happen to you—it can.
The more involved you are in serving Christ, the greater vested interests Satan has in destroying you and God’s work in and through you.
The evil one wants to take you down to use your life as a bad example to other Christians, who will imitate your moral compromise.
Until we had gone over these principles together (my wife and I, our daughter and the boy) and made sure there was complete agreement, we didn’t allow a dating relationship to begin.
We found that this was a great help not only to our daughters but also to the young men who wanted to date them.
Since God’s children are close to God’s heart, Christians are at the very top of that list.Fire is an energy-producing gift of God that gives warmth and allows us to cook.But a forest fire or a house burning to the ground or a person engulfed in flames is fire -it is horrible and frightening.Sex is a privilege inseparable from the responsibilities of the sacred marriage covenant.To exercise the privilege apart from the responsibility perverts God’s intention for sex.
