Not only did Mary and Joseph court one another they were betrothed (engaged) for several years before they actually got married!

Biblical courtship, also known as Christian courtship is a conservative Christian alternative to dating. Davis has developed a unique stand on this philosophy, and his materials have been popular with the homeschool culture since the early 1990s.

As a Christian young woman today, wouldnt you rather be respected and valued for the person God made you to be than just another body to have sex with? He wants to get to know her better because his future depends on it.

When we take away Christs principles of love, and replace them with lustful feelings of desire, it confuses people into believing that its ok to sexually and emotionally abuse one another through the dating process. There is nothing old fashioned about courtship it is how God intended it to be. Its like two spiders stuck in the web and they cant get out until they finally give up and give in.

Does it feel wrong to respect and value the person youre going to marry by making sure they do not sin against their own body?

Why are Christians falling along the wayside, disregarding moral character and values to give in to their sexual lusts and desires?
