I wonder if today’s Christian young people are having trouble finding the space between courting and hooking up.
In the wider culture, hookups have become the norm.
It is a pre-love, pre-commitment ritual that people insist has no real significance.
" Answer: Dating and courtship are two methods of beginning relationships with the opposite sex.
For years we were told that dating was unsafe and would lead inevitably to fornication, and further, we were told that dating was unbiblical, that it dishonored God and his vision for Christian families.
Young men were instructed that they must approach a young woman’s father to seek his permission before they could do something as minor and innocent as asking his daughter out for coffee.
They were told that any God-honoring relationship must see marriage as the goal.
Today’s Christian teens and young adults have grown up in this kind of Christian subculture.
