Christian teens and dating?

During the first quarter, much discussion in class was given to the topic of teen dating.  (Parents and teens should always communicate with each other for their family's dating plan. Answers below are only a guide and not ment to replace parental decisions.)    For each of the questions below give 5 different answers.  These are not necessarily "in your opinion" answers but rather taken from the discussion in class. 

10. How (not an age) old do you have to be to date? When your parents say, when you're mature enough, when you have the $, when you're old enough to drive, when you're old enough to know what God wants you to do.

11.  What is the purpose of dating? to meet your mate, to have fun, to learn respect for the other person's boundaries, find out if they love God, would they be a good parent.

12.  What are your responsibilities in dating? Keep hands off, respect the other person's boundaries, never be totally alone, make it clear what your Godly boundaries are, be home on time, drive safely, bring God into the relationship

13..  What should the boundaries be when first dating ? Keep your hands off, never be totally alone, whatever your parents say, Proverbs 5:15 wait to "drink waters from your own cistern" or no sex before marriage,

 21 For a man's ways are in full view of the LORD,
       and he examines all his paths.

    22 The evil deeds of a wicked man ensnare him;
       the cords of his sin hold him fast.

    23 He will die for lack of discipline,
       led astray by his own great folly.

Verse 21

Perhaps, like David, we do some wrong things in secret (2 Samuel chapters 11 and 12).  A woman might tempt a man.  They might think that nobody knows.  They are wrong because God knows.  He sees our secret actions.  He knows everything that we do in private.  Like David, if we have done wrong things, we should turn to God.  David’s prayer in Psalm 51 will help us to understand why we must ask God to forgive us.

Verses 22-23

The evil man is foolish.  He thinks that he is free.  But his evil behaviour will make him into a slave.  He can hide his actions from other people.  But he cannot hide from God (Numbers 32:23).  This man’s evil behaviour will destroy him.  This man should invite God into his life.  This man needs to ask God to forgive him.  God will save the evil man, but only if the man trusts God.
