Views on courtship and dating im 21 dating 15 year old
Instead, in the 21st century, technology is the way to date.Ask any 20-something and he or she has probably signed up for any number of smartphone apps or online dating sites.Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that the principles and commands found in the Bible can help us to make decisions that both please God and benefit us.(Isaiah , 18) We did not create these principles and commands, but we do live by them.
