This is because of unhealthy soul ties that have been developed, increasing the chances one’s marriage will end in adultery and divorce which drags down children and creates generational curses due to family fragmentation.
It is amazing that most churches and youth groups do not speak about this in their discipleship processes!
Dating I have taught each of my five children the difference between dating and courtship.
Dating is an unbiblical method crafted by the world with no boundaries or ethics with the following assumed rules and values: • Two people can mutually claim to be “boyfriend and girlfriend” if they are physically attracted to one another and (this is the litmus test) have a crush and claim each other for themselves in a special relationship.
• Youth should make chastity vows before they enter high school.
With these vows they should pledge to their parents before God they will not give their bodies over unless they are married to the other person.
• There are no boundaries or ethics in this type of relationship.
• Youth groups should be taught that believers should not to commit themselves to anyone God hasn’t clearly indicated will eventually be their spouse.(When two emotionally needy people get together in marriage it is usually a disaster!) Go on group dates to get to know the other person or work with them in some meaningful innocuous way.Courtship and dating are some of the least discussed topics in the church.Yet dating has caused the most havoc, destroyed countless lives, resulted in unwanted pregnancies and abortions, and even split churches apart.
