What the bible says about dating older men Enjoyourself videocams

Question: "What does the Bible say about age differences in relationships?

I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a pretty awkward first date to me.

So I thought it might be helpful to mark the (nearly) 10-year anniversary of the Biblical Dating series by asking again, The answer in a literal sense, of course, is "nothing." Not only do the words "dating" and "courtship" fail to appear in Scripture, but the Bible never depicts the sociological phenomenon of an unmarried man and woman meeting, deciding on their own to become romantically involved, and pursuing a relationship from the stages of acquaintance through marriage.

(Song of Songs gets the closest, but it's more of a love poem that teaches the expression of love and sexual desire in the context of marriage.) It's also important, as I've stressed in other columns, not to inject into Scripture implications for dating than are called for — especially in the wrong genres and contexts of the Bible.

I used my parents as an example: My mother is in her 40's and my step father in his 50's. That's almost like saying someone will go to hell for having a lustful eye on someone.

While I DO know that we should not give in to temptation, I don't think we are not guaranteed a ticket to heaven for just "thinking" it. Are you saying if I change my religion right now, I will be able to avoid hell because I thought of something "bad"?
