He believes a man must be able to provide for his wife as Christ provides for his Church before he can marry her.I think the best way to illustrate the cruelty of so-called “Christian dating” is with a story.Jonathan was a young Christian man raised in a conservative Baptist Church.Many Christians advocate for teaching teens and young adults abstinence.They are right in doing so because the Bible teaches sexual relations between a man and a woman are reserved for marriage.All growing up and in his teen group he was taught that sex is for marriage.

He memorized this passage from Hebrews and countless other passages of Scripture.

When he sees her come out her dorm his breath is taken away by her beauty.

She graciously accepts his flowers, hands them off to her girlfriend and they were off on their first date.

He also finds that he really wants to do much more.

Each date he begins more and more to imagine what she looks like without clothes and how wonderful it would be to touch her body. But he dismisses these thoughts as wicked and sinful and asks God to forgive him each and every day several times a day.

Sarah told Jonathan that she would love to go out with him but he must agree to some things first.
