Courtship advocates claim that courtship allows for the two people to truly get to know each other in a more platonic setting without the pressures of physical intimacy or emotions clouding their view. For daters, spending time alone with a member of the opposite sex whom we find attractive can present temptations that can be very hard to resist.
The Christian dating couple must have boundaries in place and be committed to not crossing them.
While there are non-Christians who date with the intention of having a series of intimate physical relationships, for the Christian this is not acceptable and should never be the reason for dating.Many Christians see dating as little more than friendship and maintain the friendship aspect of their dating until both people are ready to commit to each other as potential marriage partners.Scripturally speaking, the result of the process—godly Christian men and women marrying and raising families to the glory of God—is far more important than the method they use to achieve that result."Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" (1 Corinthians , NKJV).Because unlike the men of previous generations, you will no longer be allowed to let that body part do your thinking for you.
The #Me Too movement is rewriting the Holy Code of Manhood, and your generation will be the first to enter adulthood without a Get Out of Jail Free card as it relates to how you treat women.The challenge ahead, as I see it, is that you have a penis.And, yes, it makes me just as uncomfortable to say it as it might make you to hear it but, son, these are not the times to mince words.If a couple is never alone together, they never have that one-on-one opportunity to relate and get to know one another in emotional and spiritual intimacy.In addition, some courtship situations have led to borderline “arranged marriages” by the parents and have resulted in resentment in one or both of the young people.As stated before, during this time there should be little or no physical contact, as this is something that should wait until marriage (1 Corinthians -20).
