This love is based on our relationship with Christ and is not dependent on feelings we may or may not have for a fellow-believer.
Brother-sister relationships in Christ involve two foundational elements, commitment to fulfill the responsibility of a fellow-believer in Christ and care and concern a believer is to have toward other believers.
Also, in our culture, through "dating" people will often find a life partner and marry.
How men and women view a "date" and "dating" can have a profound effect on their future.
Gen. says, "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh." This verse tells us that marriage involves the husband and wife severing ties of intimate relationships with parents to cleave to each other.
It involves coming together into a permanent bond of unity.
But for most, the issue of dating involves "romantic attraction and desire." Therefore "dating" must be approached by what the Scripture says regarding romantic desire and marriage, the only relationship in which romantic desire is to be fully expressed.
