But as a teen, should you completely lose dating and find other "safer" options? The best and only place to go for good advice about teen dating is the Truth found in the Bible, the Word of God. And keep you're most serious feelings for that person who is worthy of them..person you one day marry. And I can't say it's a direct quotation from the Bible. Hanging around with bad company will harm us spiritually.
)The storm of outrage against dating produced a book that encouraged teens to "kiss" teen dating goodbye and go with another option. God doesn't look down on relationships that honor and glorify Him.
Everyone has opinions on teen dating (and you know what they say about opinions...they're like armpits...everybody has them..they all stink!
Often in a small group more conversational form, but I would also give this as a sermon again.
I want to make sure you undestand how I set this thing up... These are just a few examples of the power God has placed in nature. As we said before, teen dating isn't specifically mentioned in the Bible. God talks about His close relationship with His people (v. I didn't mean for this to be "Intro to French." And that's not literally what that phrase means anyway. Stick with me.) these words carry the idea that government isn't to interfere in places it doesn't belong. Too many times I've seen teen couples with their hands all over each other..in public no less! Notice verse two talks about everyone having their own spouse. Some day he or she may become someone else's husband or wife. Sure it was in a different time..what if dinosaurs were still walking the earth when your parents were dating (just kidding! And they know more than you..matter what you think! What you do with the life God has given you....that's the gift you give back to Him. Read...study...apply God's Word to your life...especially when it comes to teen dating.
If you have a hard time understanding it..may want to use your own Bible for clarity if you or your church uses a different version. Just click here for almost any Bible version you want. So..you noticed what's been going on in the world the past few years? But first...a quick message from our commercial sponsor...(Ok...maybe not. )Let me just share this little bit of advice with you again... Notice this covers everything not just teen dating... for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Teen starts dating girl/guy of questionable character. Teen is confronted by the spiritual leader in his/her life (such as pastor, youth group leader..get the picture.)3. But rememer the verse above..doesn't work that way. If you're a girl..only guys who model strong Christian leadership skills in their lives. It doesn't matter what kind of figure or how athletic they might be. It's your spiritual meals that keep your soul alive.
