This subject is one of the most far reaching choices a person can make. Most of the time because these two questions are either never asked or the answer not followed it is disastrous. Children having sex with children and having more children is a common statement. In every area of life large and small these two questions should be asked and the answers sought. You're not a real woman unless you can attract a man.The globe that bathes us in warm light, growing our crops and blushing our cheeks, has been greatly subdued in the process of reaching us from 150 million kilometers away.The blazing reality is that she emits about 5 million tons of energy per second, energy that is continuously absorbed and reemitted at lower and lower temperatures, lest the cruel queen of our solar system swallow us whole. Every erotic urge that pulses through us, body and soul—whether it be the delicate flower of puppy love or the florid blossom of sexual desire—brings life or death, depending on how successfully it is managed.But for you men the Word is clear that you treat women with respect and as sisters. You don't decide you like her and drive off to Lookout Point even if she wants to. You don't want the girl that is willing to break her vow before God and you are doing the same.
The Bible tells us that all that has to do with love can and must be tested.Our attitude to dating is not so much a matter of church policy but a matter of family government.Laying a solid foundation in this area is a parental reponsibility, but the church has a responsibility to hold the family accountable to the Word of God. If it is a man and they have read the Word they usually quote 1st Corinthians emphasizing the "seek not a wife" part with a pained look on there face.If anyone can find anywhere in the Word of God that dating as we understand it today is scriptural I would like to see it. That does not mean you can't meet and get to know members of the opposite sex.
