Bible verses about dating and courtship
Our young people are very smart and very knowealable.
They have internet and can access information very fast.
“Dating is a form of courtship consisting of social activities done by two people with the aim of each assessing the other’s suitability as a partner in an intimate relationship or as a spouse.
While the term has several meanings, it usually refers to the act of meeting and engaging in some mutually agreed upon social activity in public, together, as a couple.” Here is some history, we will not go into much detail here.
In everything we do, there are two choices: the worldly way and YHVH’s way.
We tend to do what we have always done, without questioning how it should be done according to YHVH’s way. It is not strange to see two young people out on a “date.” No-one thinks it unusual, not even if they afterwards go to a secluded place…it has become an acceptable practice, but is this practice acceptable to YHVH?
YHVH often refers to Israel using marriage imagery, a good example is in the book of Ezekiel, but we will get to it later.
To correct these problems would, however, require some changes on our part…Information about human sexuality grew, and with it an acceptance of all types of sexual orientations is becoming more common.Today, the institution of dating continues to evolve at a rapid rate with new possibilities and choices opening up.” From the above quote we see how immorality increased to the point it is now at, and we know it will further decline, because people are drifting further and further away from YHVH’s truth.Men and women became more equal politically, financially, and socially in many nations.Women won the right to vote and own property and receive equal treatment by the law, and these changes had profound impacts on the relationships between men and women. In many societies, individuals could decide––on their own––whether they should marry, who they should marry, and when they should marry.
