Teen christians and dating
Well anyway obviously Nate isn't old enough to be thinking about marriage anyway. I can't go by my past on this because when I was a teenager I was living in the world and following what the world said.Nate is surrounded by teens who have been supposedly been 'dating' for a long time now.. He is constantly being asked if he is dating some girl if he is seen talking to them...It's a good thing to date as a teenager because it's a great way to learn about dealing with relationships and the emotions they bring in a healthy manner.
These pressures can be significant with teenagers constantly asking each other things like "how far have you been?Courting is dating with boundaries and aligning with God’s Word with the vision of marriage.Boundless.org, the singles website from Focus on the Family Radio, states that “Courtship ordinarily begins when a single man approaches a single woman by going through the woman’s father, and then conducts his relationship with the woman under the authority of her father, family or church, whichever is most appropriate.I asked him if he took her on a date what would they do and she said oh go to a movie with her and another girl.
Which is a good idea actually.no different then what he does now with his friends.. Plus his youth group at church is telling them that dating should only be done when you are interested in marrying the other person. How can you get to know someone to know if you want to marry them if you don't spend time with them..ie, date?
Dating exposes teenagers to a lot of emotions and tempations they aren't used to dealing with.
