Dating?  You Can’t Have It Both Ways

When You’re Dating: You Can’t Have It Both Ways

In God’s view you can’t be partly married or partly single any more than you can be partly pregnant. You’re either one or the other. What a plague on society when single people live together as though they were married or when married people act like they’re single.

In God’s view the issues are pretty simple: “Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral” (Hebrews 13:4).

God’s ways are beautiful, fulfilling, and they work. Every alternative that sinful human beings have invented has turned out to be unfulfilling, hurtful, self-oriented, and destructive. Seriously--don’t you have enough problems in life without asking for God’s judgment too?

You honor God’s creation of marriage not only when you are married but also in the way you conduct your dating life.
