It is wrong for a Christian to date before marriage- Nigerian clergyman, Obie Jason, says (video)

 

Nigerian clergyman, Obie Jason, has said it is wrong and unbiblical for Christians to date before marriage.

According to him, when you date, you get dirty. He is of the opinion that dating does not in any way reveal the true character of a person and so people should just hit it off by getting married when they meet

Speaking during a sermon, Obie said

''Do you know it is wrong for Christians to date? Someone would get mad but just hold on a little. If you check the scriptures, the first time the bible talked about marriage, there was no dating involved. That was Genesis Chapter 2. The bible said God caused the man to sleep, the man he made Adam and then he took the rib out of his body and then he made the woman and then brought the woman to the man. There was no dating.

You will say it was only one man and one woman. Now, the bible also showed us in the case of Isaac, the son of Abraham when he got married. There was no dating. 

If you read the bible, the new testament which was written for Christians, , you would find out that the only place the bible talked about getting married or preparing for marriage was in 1st Corithians 7:9. This scriptures says ''Get married''. If you meet someone and you feel that I can go ahead with this one, the bible said just get married. You don't need to delay.

The whole dating stuff is something that is borrowed from the world and it is destroying a lot of Christians. A lot of women and young ladies are having heartbreaks. Some of them are affected and impacted mentally because a young man will pick a lady and then carry her saying lets get to know ourselves and all, promise her marriage and after a while he will dump her and the lady will have heartbreak. We see a lot of things going wrong''

He went on to fault clergymen who subscribe to dating and have even written books about dating.

''You can never see anywhere in the bible where it is stated that we should date and the scriptures never imply that. That is something borrowed from the world and it is not good. When you date, you get dirty. Dating is simply a game played by unbelievers'' he said

The Main Differences Between A Mature Relationship And An Immature Relationship

  Mature couples aren’t people who fall in love so recklessly. And that’s the truth. When you think of someone “falling in love,” you immediately picture a person in some kind of free fall with no control of the situation whatsoever. But that isn’t what mature people do. No. Mature people are always going to want to have some sense of control over the situation that they are in. And that’s why mature people never really “fall in love” in the traditional sense of the term. They step into it. They walk up to it and take ownership of it. And that’s what love is supposed to be. There really isn’t much truth to the saying that you can’t control who you love. It doesn’t always paint the whole story. Yes, you can fall in love with just about anyone. However, you can always control how much you allow yourself to love that person. You can always control the amount of love that you can give to another individual. You can always control who you choose to manifest the love that is within your hear

Woman rewards her parents for ignoring friends who advised them against investing in her education

A woman has narrated how she rewarded her parents for investing in her education, despite advice from people telling them that a girl child education was a waste and will only benefit her in-laws. @NqobaKonkhe said her father was a security guard in a company before being promoted to a supervisor. His new position allowed him to put one of his children in the company's private school. The man chose his first child, a girl, to go to the private school.  However, people adviced him against it and told him to pick his son because the girl will most likely get married or pregnant before finishing school. Her parents ignored the advice and allowed her to continue to a private high school. While in high school, friends warned her parents again that the investment on their daughter will be used to better another family, not theirs. But her parents ignored them again. The opposite turned out to be the case. Her brothers started having children and couldn't help the family much so the d
