Weâ€™re bombarded with antichristian messages everywhere in life, and from casual hookups to casual sex, our cultureâ€™s messages on dating are no different.
But Christians donâ€™t have to follow these norms. The Bible gives us a better way.
Itâ€™s a way of chastity and wisdom. A way that understands that marriageâ€”the end goal of datingâ€”is for life. The person you marry will shape who you become spiritually. And that person will also be the father or mother to the children God is pleased to give you some day.
Pastorally and accessibly, Joshua Engelsma answers the practical questions of Reformed, Christian dating based on the truth that we must date differentlyâ€”with marriage as the goal and scripture as the guide.
Joshua Engelsma is a minister in the Protestant Reformed Churches of America. He lives in Doon, Iowa, with his wife, Courtney, and six children. He has served as pastor of Doon Protestant Reformed Church since 2014.
