Family and dating
Well, I recall my bad luck with grocery carts because many times Ive experienced a similar battle of wills with dating.
Im not talking about conflicts between me and the girls Ive dated. And based on my experiences and my exploration of Gods Word, Ive concluded that for Christians dating is a swerver a set of values and attitudes that wants to go in a direction different from the one God has mapped out for us. Self-control isn't enough I once heard a youth minister speak on the topic of love and sex. rending story about Eric and Jenny, two strong Christians who had actively participated in his youth group years earlier. But as time went by, their physical relationship slowly began to accelerate, and they wound up sleeping together.
He seemed to think that Eric and Jenny should have had more respect for each other and more self-control.
Although this pastor encouraged a different outcome saving sex for marriage he didnt offer a different practice. Head out on the same course as those who have fallen and hope that in the critical moment youll be able to stay in control?
