Voddie Baucham on Modern American Dating

Stamped: March 26th, 2008

As a Student and Families Pastor, I have had a lot of conversations with students and parents in regards to dating. In fact, it seems to be a pretty hot topic right now in many conversations throughout our church body and I want to help in any way that I can, so you can expect more blogs on this topic as I explore this issue and dating’s implications further. But for now ponder these words from Voddie Bauchum:

“Modern American dating is no more than glorified divorce practice. Young people are learning how to give themselves away in exclusive, romantic, highly committed (at times sexual) relationships, only to break up and do it all over again. God never intended for His kids to live like this. And instead of stepping in and doing something, many Christian parents simply view these types of relationships as a normal and necessary part of growing up. Unless your child is wiser than Solomon, stronger than Samson, and more godly than David (all of whom sinned sexually), they are susceptible to sexual sin, and these premature relationships serve as open invitations.”
