We should find out if the person has been born again in the Spirit of Christ (John 3:3-8) and if he or she shares the same desire toward Christ-likeness (Philippians 2:5).
The ultimate goal of dating or courting is finding a life partner.
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 ).
But that process requires wisdom, discernment and guidance.The first is that we must separate from the world's view on dating because God's way contradicts the world's (2 Peter ).While the world’s view may be to date around as much as we want, the important thing is to discover the character of a person before making any commitment to him or her.The limits of the canon were effectively set in the early church, however the status of the scriptures has been a topic of scholarly discussion in the later church.Increasingly, the biblical works have been subjected to literary and historical criticism in an effort to interpret the biblical texts, independent of Church and dogmatic influences.Joshua Harris, for instance, has promoted a model of courtship that harkens back to a model used broadly before modern dating evolved.People attempting to follow a courtship model within today's culture, however, often run into a lot of practical questions, such as, "What if her dad is unavailable or uninterested in being involved?" or "What do you do when you live hundreds of miles from your family?"The goal of this series of articles, beginning with this introduction, is to provide our readers with a place to bring those questions.Focus’ online community for young adults, Boundless, seeks to help singles navigate these issues.Through Boundless, Focus encourages intentional living and offers resources that motivate young adults to know their worth in Christ as individuals and to be open to the opportunities God may have for them.
