Some of the messages we've presented have taken the position that Christians can apply their faith in such a way that they can still work within the system they've inherited.

Other messages have stressed that Christians need to be much more counter-cultural.

In a dating relationship don't be exclusive—care about others too. "Next, learn to put aside your own desires so that you will become patient and godly, gladly letting God have his way with you. Don't keep looking at my sins—erase them from Your sight.Copyright ©2001 by Crossway Bibles, a publishing ministry of Good News Publishers.

What to avoid on dates. "Be decent and true in everything you do so that all can approve your behavior. Create in me a new, clean heart, O God, filled with clean thoughts and right desires.Don't spend your time in wild parties and getting drunk or in adultery and lust, or fighting, or jealousy." Dating should not include a sexual relationship. "But sexual sin is never right: our bodies were not made for that, but for the Lord…That is why I say to run from sex sin. When you sin this sin it is against your own body." Keep yourself pure. "And everyone who really believes this will try to stay pure because Christ is pure." To keep from hurting ourselves, sexual desires and activities must be placed under Christ's control. "For God wants you to be holy and pure and to keep clear of all sexual sin so that each of you will marry in holiness and honor—not in lustful passion as the heathen do, in their ignorance of God and his ways." If you have already gone too far physically, what should you do? Don't toss me aside, banished forever from Your presence. Restore to me again the joy of Your salvation, and make me willing to obey You." Third, Believe that God has indeed forgiven you and quit feeling guilty. "What happiness for those whose guilt has been forgiven! What relief for those who have confessed their sins and God has cleared their record.Marriage shows the relationship between Christ and the church. Two sinful people are united into one and they commit to each other in everything. When you hear about Christians living in sexual sin they are false converts and not truly saved. If you get into a relationship with an ungodly person they will slow you down. I know it hurts, but God uses this situation to work in a believers life to conform them into the image of His Son and build their faith. ” Sometimes we are not ready financially, spirituality, in maturity, or it’s just not God’s will yet. It shows how Christ loved the church and laid down His life for her. No one besides the Lord will come before the person you are going to marry. You have to say no to everyone else when it comes to your spouse. Do you listen to His conviction or do you do what you want to do? Run to Christ and whoever is keeping up with you introduce yourself. God will replace the person He has taken away with someone better. You must keep your eyes on Christ and pray for His peace and comfort when you are single because you will kill yourself if you are constantly thinking about it. Sometimes God uses singleness to drive you in prayer.
