Teen singles dating resources
By ignoring dating entirely, we are telling ourselves that we are incapable of dating in the manner God intends us to date.
We are capable of living how God instructs us to live.
If you read the above verses, and you followed God's blueprint for love, your dating experience would be a blessing!
I believe that if we follow what the Bible says about loving each other, dating or not, our relationships would be healthy, satisfying and glorifying to God.
The list of verses mentioned above outlines what love is about, and what I want to stress is that the Bible, to my knowledge, doesn't directly speak about a specific stance on dating.
If you're looking for something that says, unequivocally, "dating is wrong" or "dating is right," you won't find it.
John : Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.Genesis -19: Leah had weak eyes, but Rachel was lovely in form, and beautiful.Jacob was in love with Rachel and said, "I'll work for you seven years in return for your younger daughter Rachel." Laban said, "It's better that I give her to you than to some other man. Romans : Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Romans 13:9: The commandments, "Do not commit adultery," "Do not murder," "Do not steal," "Do not covet," and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this one rule: "Love your neighbor as yourself." 1 Corinthians 13: 1-13: If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. I listed these verses in response to criticism of my previous article on dating.Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. Some of the readers shared their disagreement with my stance that dating has the potential for good or evil and that dating can be a very positive experience.
