Modern courtship and dating

However, we’ll never experience the same level of connection with an unbeliever as we would a Christ follower because they share our values, beliefs, and worldview.In addition, courting other believers creates wonderful opportunities to do spiritual activities together, such as attending church, Christian concerts, reading the Bible, and serving.

Fast forward to today’s dating scene and we see surface-level connections, one night stands, and high divorce rates.

"Dating" is not necessarily another word for fornication - anything that involves sex before marriage does not qualify as real dating, not even close.

I used to drink the "dating is bad, courtship is the only right way" Kool-aid myself.

But I’ve been scared to start “dating” again because of what dating has meant to me in the past, and fear of falling back into sinful habits.

The guy I have a crush on is a Christian as well, in fact he’s who talked me into going to church, which led to my salvation.

When hearing the term, many have images of their grandparents being chaperoned by their parents with their special someone.

In those days, courting was about getting to know your potential partner as much as possible in a safe, pure environment.Unfortunately, our sex saturated culture encourages people to lust over the person they are pursuing, which is dishonorable both to God and to them. Others don’t want to feel tied down so they keep their emotions surface-level.Instead, we must“…captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5, NIV) by edifying them with our mind. Still others avoid feeling anything substantial because they are only concerned about personal gain and physical pleasure. Instead, if the connection feels safe and warranted, we must allow ourselves to develop authentic feelings to cultivate god-honoring relationships.3-Courting cultivates emotional closeness, safety, and vulnerability.4-Courting preserves sexual contact for marriage alone.1-Courting puts spiritual connection first to become equally yoked.
