Biblical dating guidelines
This often includes choosing not to spend nights together, as Christians believe that sexual immorality should be avoided at all costs.
While Christianity sets forth many guidelines and the end result of all Christian relationships is a lasting, healthy marriage, do not pressure yourself with timelines or feeling that your current partner has to be your soul mate.
Does it cause you to lose respect for the other person?
While we have internal regulation as Christians in the form of our Spirit inspired convictions and knowledge of the bible, it is still not enough.
Having external mentors and checks is exemplified all over the bible and is key for maintaining our standards and values in relationships.
For dating Christians, having a relationship full of fun and love must be weighed with self-control and upholding the faith.
At times, Christian principles of chastity, honesty and worship present challenges but these same foundational guidelines also promote a wholesome and holy relationship based on trust, love and respect.
