I think the best way to illustrate the cruelty of so-called “Christian dating” is with a story.
Jonathan was a young Christian man raised in a conservative Baptist Church.
This faithfulness was not only physical, but also a faithfulness in heart and in eyes.
I had only been saved for a little while when the Lord dealt with me.
"Ellen, will you put your dating life on the altar?
" This question haunted me for a little while, for I knew that He was asking me to trust Him with the question of marriage.
All growing up and in his teen group he was taught that sex is for marriage.
This “half measure” abstinence that is taught in most Churches today has lead to modern practices in Christian dating that encourage emotional cruelty toward men.
We gazed at each other as we said, "I do." I smile as I think of one of the most wonderful blessings that God has given me: the blessing of marriage.
Just recently, as I thought of the blessing my husband, Bro.
We are happily married and enjoying sharing life with one another.
We do our best at keeping God in the center of our lives.
Which means, if you have a love story, it will be unlike any that you’ve ever read before—because it will be yours.
