Are we supposed to be actively looking for a spouse? Belle* is 28 years old and has never been on a date in her life. Remember, you’re a beautiful, chatty, lovely person!Of course, the courtship style presents its own set of difficulties.While many courtship advocates see it as the only choice for finding a mate, others find it oppressive and overly controlling.
"Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" (1 Corinthians , NKJV).
First and foremost, dating is a time when a Christian finds out if his or her potential marriage partner is also a believer in Christ.
The Bible warns us that believers and unbelievers should not marry each other, because those living in the light (of Christ) and those living in the darkness cannot live in harmony (2 Corinthians -15).
Finally, care must be taken to avoid the pitfall of believing one’s personal preference—dating or courting—is the “only way” and looking down upon those who make the opposite choice.
As in all things, the unity of the body of Christ should be of utmost importance in our minds, regardless of personal choices others make pertaining to issues on which the Bible is silent.
