Audio Sermons : Paul Washer :  Dating Sermon

 Dating Sermon by Paul Washer

Topic: Dating
Description: This message is three short messages put together into one. Paul Washer speaks on the idea of dating and shows that it is very unbiblical and wrong. He breaks down many preconceptions people have about courtship in a biblical sense. This is a very strong message but very important to listen to when we have almost lost all bibilcal instruction and decency in this area of courtship.

 What a great message that is GREATLY NEEDED today 
I'm 36 now and have to say I was extremely impressed with everything Paul had to say in this message. Wish I would have only followed such a pattern in growing up when it came to dating. I know this will be a message that I will replay a few more times in the future. If only our Christian youth today had such love and support from family and their churches to carry such a walk like this in their lives today. Hopefully there are some that do, sadly just don't see or hear stuff like this these days, in messages or in church youth.

 A message of truth and hope 
I am a 25 yr. old woman, now saved only 5 yrs., just heard this message yesterday for the 1st time, and am astounded at the wisdom, boldness and unapologetic truth that poured out of this vessel. I sure would have loved to be better acquainted w/ this topic before I got saved and even after for all the foolish and painful experiences, even those encouraged by the church itself. There was not one thing said in this message that I disagreed w/ & believe that God the Holy Ghost endeavored to reach out. I would deeply encourage every young person that really wants to walk w/ God to listen to this message with an open heart and hear the wisdom and the original intention of God. It has stirred a cry in my heart to honor God and truly grow in grace and virtue. I am sure it will be a tool for growth and integrity from here on after.

 I wish this were part of a discussion 
I don't think it is reasonable to expect all singles to be so dependent on elders and parents in this age of religious disunity, but I doubt that I have a better solution to the problem. I do think it is important to object to Paul's suggestions that bank-robbers ought not ask God to help them commit their crimes and that singles likewise ought not pray for help in their impure relationships. I think being humbled into admitting our dependence on God helped my wife and I get our marriage off to a better start--an idyllic courtship like the one Paul described might have left us more self-righteous (which could be disastrous for our marriage). I would like to share Paul's sermon with my own kids at least to make them aware of a strategy that their future spouses may expect to follow. Thank you, Paul, for laying it out.

 I thank God I heard this at age 19 
I thank God that I heard a message like this one at 19. I had already done so much damage to myself and several young ladies. But, I found an awesome wife without dating and I was spared from the further damage that dating would have caused in my life.

 Dating Sermon 
Paul talks about the evil of dating in American society and how it is destroying marriage and the lives of people, including Christians. He explains how to go about "dating" in a way that is honorable to God. Very good!

 A sermon to make you think 
I told my Pastor's wife about this sermon because they have 15 year old twin boys. She said she wanted to rewiew it for her boys.If she likes it we will pass it out to all the young people in our church. There are two places where I havev a minor problem with but in all a great sermon I wish I might have heard this sermon 40 years ago when I was 17 or maybe my parents would have heard it, ICCCMDave

 If you're seeking advice on this topic... 
This is an excellent teaching on courtship and marriage. Brother Paul shares some very good principles that are often neglected in our culture. Young people and parents would do well to take the time to hear this message! I highly recommend it.
