Courting verses dating Publicsex chat without login
Unfortunately, however, our culture teaches our singles to engage in multiple dating relationships as though it were a normal and useful practise.
The truth is, the modern dating system has only been around for less than a century.
The dichotomy is this: in dating, we presume to partake of many of these privileges of marriage.
We would be shocked if a married man had an emotional attachment to another woman, and yet it's quite acceptable for singles to have a different emotional attachment every week.
But there is a glaring fault in many of our models, a double-standard.
Once we are married, we recognize that certain things are sacred to our partner.
And it is my conviction that the wordly system of dating, as it is currently conducted by most people, is far from God's original plan, as described in the Bible.
I intend to expose the flaws I see in today's dating model, and at the same time point out how Biblical courtship addresses these flaws.
The current model that we are using is ineffective, at best. Dating was invented in the early part of this century.
My basic premise is that regardless of how we about things, we should follow God's model, because it will be the most effective and fulfilling.
My intention is to convey that conviction, then to describe my current understanding of His model.
In overview, courting should only happen once and ends in a life-long covenant relationship.
Dating happens lots of times, and ends in many hurts, heartbreaks, scars, and if you're lucky, a partner that just is a word that has been adopted to describe a biblical model for the relationship leading up to marriage.
