Laying out guidelines for dating as followers of Jesus will alter lives by keeping people out of toxic and unhealthy relationships (and ultimately marriages).
“The one” says you need to find the perfect person.
That would make God a gambler, and the Bible clearly says gambling is from the devil (only joking).
I fear this mentality in the dating culture is actually promoting divorce.Suddenly, when marriage begins, you are asked to flip a switch.Why date someone who doesn’t even have God as a piece of the pie?Pull over at the closest gas station and decide what you want in a future spouse.If you love the Cowboys and your future spouse loves the Packers, is it important to work through this before marriage?
It is time for Christians to start talking about dating.The truth is you could spend your life with more than one person.Get to know yourself.” And as soon as the person you are dating smacks his or her gum the wrong way, you are out.The ultimate purpose of marriage is sanctification (becoming like God).If you have no idea what values are important to you in a future spouse, exit the road to marriage at the next off ramp.It allows you to jump into marriage with a clear conscience.
