Christian courtship and dating

13 Apr

First things first, let's separate how the world views dating from how God wants us to handle the period of time before a couple gets married.

The world says that dating as much as you want is totally fine.

Dating and courting are basically the same thing—just different terms.

"Courtship" is generally viewed as pursuing a relationship with the full intention to marry the other person.

And with today’s modern attitudes toward dating, we’re tempted to look to serve ourselves first before thinking of the needs of others.

All these factors have led to a sharp decrease in the idea of “courtship” as opposed to dating.
