Christian dating commandments
" The answer is "Nothing." There is no chapter on dating; there is no dating psalm; and Song of Solomon is strictly off-limits for all single people!
You are on the date, I presume, to meet your desire for companionship and perhaps in hopes of marriage.
You have anxieties, hopes, fears, likes and dislikes.
A woman is not told to submit to a boyfriend, yet if she is dating a man she does not respect, whom she would not gladly honor in marriage, whose spiritual leadership is not beneficial to her, it is probably a good question why she is going on a date with him.
Just as Eve was given to Adam to be a helper (see Gen. Help make the conversation move forward, help him to act in a godly manner by the way you dress and act, help him if he feels nervous or awkward, as is often the case, help him by prayer for God to bless this man you are willing to go out with on a date.
Therefore it is your duty to minister as a brother or sister, to think about and act upon what is best for the woman or man you are out with, remembering that "It is better to give than to receive" (Acts ).
Even when a dating relationship doesn't work out, you should ask yourself if your former date is better off for having spent time with you.In Matthew 22, Jesus was asked what is the most important commandment.He replied, "' Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment." He then threw in another one for free, saying, "And the second is like it: `Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments" (Mt. Surely this is a passage that will say much for every topic facing a Christian, including the matter of dating." Whenever I get a question like that I'm not quite sure how I should respond.My experience is that for many of us, the most valuable advise deals with things not specific to the Bible: brush your teeth, dress nicely, be on time, don't talk the whole time, take her to a decent restaurant.However, I think the questioner has something else in mind.
