Dating ministries

In today’s society, you are automatically granted certain things or privileges once the title of “girlfriend” or “boyfriend” has been established.Not to mention the creation of applications such as Tinder, which is an app that promotes casual hook-ups and one night stands.Sex has simultaneously changed with the definition of dating from something pure and intended with the boundaries of marriage, into something twisted and trivial.I’m pretty sure if I were to have a date with a girl in front of my parents, there wouldn’t be a second date.Fast forward a 100 years, it’s safe to say that this invention has drastically changed, and I’m not entirely sure if it’s for the better.

So instead, we should consider Godly dating as intentionally getting to know someone of the opposite sex so that we can eventually marry and fulfill God’s created order.Otherwise, when we take this modern dating creation and use it as a means to ask for illegitimate privileges, we are taking away from the gift of marriage that God has given to us.
