Holy marriage and dating
Physical touch/intimacy should correspond with commitment. This doesn’t mean anything goes if you are engaged. What is your motivation -- power and control, gratifying your own ego, meeting a selfish need, or genuine affection?
The apostle Paul writes in 2 Corinthians : "Do not be yoked together with unbelievers." We believe that this warning also applies to marriage, and that it's better for Christians not to marry non-believers.Maturity and readiness for marriage are not considerations in the decision to date.Instead, couples usually date with the selfish goals of having fun and enjoying romantic attachments.However, many Christians can't find their soul mate in church, and many singles are simply too busy to maintain an active social life.This is why we want to help unmarried Christians to meet other Christian singles — for a serious relationship, but also for fellowship and spiritual growth.Both parties, as well as their families and all the people who love them, should continue to trust in the Lord and accept the grace He gives to deal with any disappointment or unfulfilled hopes. The main difference between dating and courtship involves the goals to be reached by spending time with a potential marriage partner.
Men and women who choose to date often have no commitment to consider marrying the other person.
If you are dating someone who doesn’t have a personal relationship with Christ, you are playing with fire. Don’t let the relationship progress to a physical point and then hope you can cut it off later. You need all the help you can get in today’s world. Do you depend on Him to meet your needs of love and security?
If you can’t stand the person but have a great physical relationship, rethink the relationship. If one person is uncomfortable with any type of physical expression, don’t do it. Don’t push a date to do anything that makes him/her feel uncomfortable.
As a Christian dating site we believe that marriage is a sacred covenant between man and woman, ordained by God as part of His divine plan for each of us. God says in Genesis : "It isn't good for man to be alone; I will make a companion for him, a helper suited to his needs." God himself brings people together according to his timetable.
Sometimes it feels like his plans are limiting us, and sometimes it's not easy to wait for God's timing.
You must decide before you go on the date what your limits will be.
