The way God presented her reveals the importance and sacredness of marriage.
Alistair Begg once said, “How do we expect our children who needed our help picking out socks just a few short years ago to pick out a mate without our assistance.” Sermon #2 – Pastor Ric Blazi Ric preached from Genesis 2 and used supporting texts from the life of Ruth and Boaz, Samson, and Jacob.
He pointed out that God created a unique mate for Adam – unlike any of the other creative work before her. Ric did a good job of presenting the real struggles and challenges that happen in our modern dating practices.
She was unlike the animals, but she was like Adam – yet different. Drama is often a normality in our recreational dating, and it usually doesn’t end well.
This may seem overly protective or an ancient practice, but as I stated in my sermon, the recreational dating methods are relatively new in terms of human history.
The recreational dating routine became popularized sometime over the last 100 years.
Before that, finding a mate was done in a much more controlled and tame manner – even outside of the church among unbelievers.I preached from Genesis 2 and outlined the way God created Eve and presented her to Adam as his wife.This past week, we concluded our preaching series on biblical courtship. As a church, we’ve traditionally overlooked our responsibility to equip families in this important role of marriage preparation.The goal was to help parents and grandparents with biblical truth and helpful resources on how to equip your children for the process of finding a spouse. It begins when the children are young – not merely a few months before they stand before a crowd of people and say the traditional “I do! Recreational dating is expected on the school campuses, and if a child refuses to “date,” he or she is more often than not, .” Sermon #1 – Pastor Josh Buice In the first sermon, I sought to provide an overview of the importance for parents to be directly involved in the process of their children finding a mate.
