When Paul says that believers need to be equally yoked with others - he isn't talking exclusively about marriage. God bestows on you awesome mysterious power to become one with someone else. You're telling your Christian girls not to be unequally yoked but also telling them to hope for their future spouse but you know that there's not enough christian men for every christian woman in the church.
Everything we do is based or ought to be based around one fact: Jesus Christ is coming back.
Doesn't Paul say: Whatever you do, whether you eat or drink, do it for the glory of God?
We need to date someone who knows our God, follows our God, loves our God, and encourages/challenges us to do so as well. "Pray for you future spouse."- Again, what if God doesn't want you to get married? Too often object lessons surrounding sex talks are meant to scare, belittle, shame, embarrass, and degrade Christians (usually christian girls). We take water and spit phlegm in it and say - no one would ever want to drink this.
Having a close partnership (dating relationship) with a nonbeliever doesn't make sense and isn't wise. Youth Pastors love to perpetuate it."Save yourself for your future spouse."- What? The godliness of singleness should always be a very important part of every relationship talk. Or we hold up a beautiful rose and encourage others to pass it around during the talk and at the end we say "where's that rose?
Writers, editors, photographers, models - they're all hell bent on making sure our students lust after their final product. Lives are being destroyed and taking part in such death is absolutely not a part of the Christian life.
You don't want to answer this question so much as you want to get them to start asking a different question: "How do I glorify God with my relationship?
Christians aren't called to live for the temporary. then homosexuals are marrying someone else's future spouse that was never intended for them.
Christians don't treat others as objects to be consumed. If that's the case then their original partner that they should've married will go on to marry someone else (who also was meant for someone else). Our value isn't based on who we are or what we do but it's based on who God is and God is love and God is unchanging and so God will always love us and that will never change. It's all in this handy dandy and FREE relationship talk.
Most of the time we reserve saying "I love you" until things get more serious.
