Christian views on dating and relationships
If "dating" is defined as two single friends of the opposite sex doing things together for fun without any attraction or romantic desire or intimacy involved at all, there is no issue to discuss regarding dating. The Bible describes and gives directions concerning friendship.Also, in our culture, through "dating" people will often find a life partner and marry.
This has caused tension, which time apart between dates has helped ameliorate.The Bible does not talk about "dating," but it does talk about relationships.However, the Bible does describe three kinds of relationships with the opposite sex and gives certain characteristics of each relationship (there are others such as parent/child and sibling, but they don't clarify the issues of dating).Marriage involves three elements, commitment, care and concern, and emotion.When a Christian marries he or she is making a commitment to fulfill the responsibility God ordains for the husband or wife to fulfill.
How men and women view a "date" and "dating" can have a profound effect on their future.
