Christian definition of dating
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.
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.
This does not mean you cannot be friends with that person, but you should not date them.
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.
There are all kinds of advice out there about dating today, but a lot of it is about dating in the world rather than Christian dating.
Christians need to have a different attitude toward dating.
According to Genesis, a man will leave home to marry one woman to become one flesh.
While you may not be looking at marrying anyone at the moment, it should always be in the back of your head.
Why get involved emotionally with someone that you should not marry?
On the other hand, some Christian teens believe that interracial dating is inappropriate due to the scriptures that tells Christians to avoid being yoked to non-Christians.
However, there is actually nothing in the Bible that prohibits dating people of other races.
