Youth bible study on dating
Talk about the dangers of lust (checking each other out). Girl magazines have pages called "eye candy" with half naked guys.
You can't walk through a grocery store check out line or downs the aisles of a convenience store without some adult trying to convince you to lust. Talk about the dangers of pornography - not only to those who use it but also to those who work in the industry.
Christians aren't called to live for the temporary. then homosexuals are marrying someone else's future spouse that was never intended for them.
Christians don't treat others as objects to be consumed. If that's the case then their original partner that they should've married will go on to marry someone else (who also was meant for someone else). Our value isn't based on who we are or what we do but it's based on who God is and God is love and God is unchanging and so God will always love us and that will never change. It's all in this handy dandy and FREE relationship talk.
We need to date someone who knows our God, follows our God, loves our God, and encourages/challenges us to do so as well. "Pray for you future spouse."- Again, what if God doesn't want you to get married? Too often object lessons surrounding sex talks are meant to scare, belittle, shame, embarrass, and degrade Christians (usually christian girls). We take water and spit phlegm in it and say - no one would ever want to drink this.
" "How do I act in such a way that I'd be able to hold my head up high if I was invited to my girlfriend's future wedding (if she married someone else)?
Most of the time we reserve saying "I love you" until things get more serious.
I even know a guy who is waiting until marriage to speak those words.
I met a drunk girl on the streets of my hometown one day while out with a friend. She said, "I've had sex with a lot of people - but I've never made love with anyone." She had decided... There is no such thing as "friends with benefits."The thing is... You'd never compare it to someone who broke their arm once. People who are raped or molested experience physical pain, psychological pain, emotional pain, and spiritual pain. One of my youth told me a story about a girl who (Before I came to this church) asked, "Where in the Bible does it say that people can't have sex until marriage?
and culture had taught her that sex can be purely physical. our culture agrees with this (unless it's inconvenient for them). " And apparently (so the story goes) no one could answer her.
