“Sexual promiscuity is rampant, even among Christian teens, and many young people receive little or no moral guidance from their parents or support from the culture.
“Some of the alternatives our friends have suggested deserve careful consideration, including a return to a ‘courtship’ rather than a ‘dating’ model for premarital relationships, closer parental supervision and guidance, and stricter and higher standards of personal purity,” shared Daly, winner of the 2010 Home Word Family Ministry Award.
But a number of Christian pro-family advocates are saying that Christians need to be careful even about Focus on the Family President Jim Daly shares the burden with parents who are concerned about the premarital relationships their children develop.
“I concur with many of the misgivings expressed by those concerned about the ‘dating game,’ as it has come to be known and accepted in modern society,” Daly shared with WND.
“For better or for worse, dating remains a standard feature of our culture’s method of managing this fundamental aspect of human life.” To Daly, the “dating” of today isn’t what mom and dad remember.
“To be sure, contemporary dating is different from what it was in previous generations,” Daly asserts.
