To say or believe that another person is “everything” or the most important thing in one’s life is idolatry, which is sin (Galatians ; Colossians 3:5).
Also, we are not to defile our bodies by having premarital sex (1 Corinthians 6:9, 13; 2 Timothy ).
Distraction is one of the biggest issues teens can face in this new stage.
Is dating distracting your child from their homework, chores and even family life?
In courtship, a couple get to know each other and decide if there will be an engagement or other such agreement.”It seems that modern dating has become more of a sport or hobby and less of a purposeful activity.
Unmarried people are engaging in kissing, foreplay, and even sex outside of marriage.
We have told our daughter that we don’t want her to date.
The Bible tells us that, as Christians, we should not marry an unbeliever (2 Corinthians -15) because this would weaken our relationship with Christ and compromise our morals and standards.
When one is in a committed relationship, whether dating or courting, it is important to remember to love the Lord above all else (Matthew ).
If the answer is yes, it may not be a good time to date until they’re older and can maturely balance these different facets of their life. Dating appropriately is certainly possible at this age, but there are some temptations they’ll face along the way.
This is something we all have to face eventually; it’s simply a part of dating.
