Courtship and Dating
So What’s the Difference? (Audio CD)
We hear much about courtship these days, but judging by the conversations we have with families, many parents are quite in the dark as to the real differences between a “dating” approach to relationships and the “courtship” concept. We want to spare our children the pitfalls we experienced in the 20th-century “dating” tradition; but too often we lack clear ideas about what we are leading them to, and end up being more of a barrier than a door! So what are the differences between courtship and dating?
This message cites 7 easy-to-understand principles that will help any family apply ancient wisdom to a new era, and without artificial, Pharisaical rules that stretch Scripture.
