Ask yourself if the two of you are patient and kind to one another. God is pretty picky on this one, and the Bible makes this issue very clear.
The Bible seriously warns us about dating non-Christians.
There are all kinds of advice out there about dating today, but a lot of it is about dating in the world rather than Christian dating.
Christians need to have a different attitude toward dating.
However, even among Christians, there are differences as to whether you should or should not date.
The choice is up to you and your parents, but Christian teens should still know God’s perspective on dating.
Audio-Bibles work well for the Bible’s many styles of literature, though they work best for stories as opposed to proverbs or letters. A book like Nehemiah would generally take about one hour. Here’s a full list of the approximate times it would take to read each book in our English Bible.
This is evident when listening to to Paul’s letters and did not own personal copies of them. I understand the objection: “There’s no way I could possibly find time to do this.” But aren’t there other activities you do in life for prolonged periods of time? Do you ever spend an hour watching a TV show or two hours watching a movie or three hours watching a football game? One way to get excited about reading the Bible is to rethink your Bible-reading strategy.The pace is so fast that you miss all sorts of nuances, but you gain a valuable macro-perspective.It is love that should drive Christian teens to date, but it should not be the shallow version of love. You should know the person you are dating and know their beliefs.You should check your potential boyfriend against the values listed in 1 Corinthians. Go through the characteristics to measure your relationship.This does not mean you cannot be friends with that person, but you should not date them.
