The Goal of Dating and the Delusion of Modern Phenomena

Vitaliy Pelikhatyy 929_071011 July 10, 2011

If you come up to an average teenager and ask him about his plans for the future, one of the inevitable aspects involves marriage. Almost all people long to be married and enjoy the blessings of the family life. This expectation and desire is an integral part of the human experience, just as God planned it from the very beginning (Gen 2:24-25).

The world around us offers many different ways of how young people are to date and get together. The problem is that when we look at the results of these ways, there is much discouragement. About 50% of marriages end up in divorce, there are scores of sexual abuse cases, broken hearts, unwanted pregnancies and so forth. In other words, the world system doesn't work. What's even more troubling is that the majority of Christians adopt world principles when it comes to forming a family, and sadly often come to same results as unchristians around them.

This summer as a youth, we want to spend a number of weeks studying this topic, the topic of dating, more closely and from a biblical perspective. This is seen in the title of our series, "When Adam Met Eve," refering to our desire to come back to the original design of God for family and using exclusively Biblical principles when it comes to dating. The first message in the series deals with the goal of dating and the foundation of dating. Two essential elements that must be in place as you begin on your journey to marriage. Feel free to comment and ask questions in the comment space provided which we'd love to answer during our Q/A's and successive sermons.
