Godly dating vs modern dating

Men did not have to romance women to get women to marry them.

Men did not need pickup lines or any of the other tricks of getting women to show interest in them.

: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” – Psalm 25:7 (KJV) “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.” – Hebrews 13:4 (KJV) “Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.” – I Corinthians 7:2 (KJV) It is not wrong for a young person to desire to find a spouse and be married one day.

In fact this is a noble and right desire and should be encouraged by all parents.

In many ways modern dating and romance has become a form of idolatry.

Listen to romance songs on the radio or watch romance movies.

If they did they might be seen as a prostitute or a whore.

There often was little to no romance involved even in the case of a man approaching a woman directly who had no male relatives in charge of her.

Even when a person does “bump into the right person” or so they think – dating itself today is far from how God’s Word would have it to be.

Men pursue women by buying them gifts and make all kinds of romantic gestures to show their affection for the women they are with.

But there is a way to bring order to the chaos of modern dating and the answer is found in God’s Word.
