Scripture on teenage dating

17-Jan-2015 19:25

I have sat with students who are dating that honestly want to honor God in their relationship so they set boundaries and spiritual goals for their relationship.

If you are around teenagers, maybe as a parent or youth worker like me, you have seen some of this stuff.

We want them to obey God’s Word in all areas of their lives, especially when it comes to dating relationships.

But here is the tricky part – the Bible doesn’t address dating. Second, we look into God’s Word and draw principles out of it that can be applied to dating. We need to show them clear Biblical principles that can and should be applied to dating so they can go about it in a way that honors and glorifies God.

No matter what the rules are God expects teenagers to obey their parents. When a Christian teenager decides to date a non-Christian it usually hinders the faith of the Christian teenager.

Ephesians 6:1 (ESV) says, Parents should set rules and boundaries for their teenagers when it comes to dating and teenagers should obey those rules. They will usually be pulled away from their relationship with God and be tempted to walk in a way that doesn’t line up with their Christian faith.

So when it comes to dating many of us want to know what does the Bible says so that we can pass it on to teenagers.

Teenagers need to understand that God created sex to be enjoyed in the context of marriage.

When you engage in sex, or any sexual activity for that matter, outside of marriage it is sin.

Yep, dating is never mentioned or even referred to in God’s Word. Here are some Biblical principles that can and should be applied to dating relationships.

The simple answer as to why is because dating as we know it today didn’t exist back then. These are the Biblical truths we should pass on to teenagers to help them date in a way that would honor God. When it comes to dating, parents have different views.
