Session 2.1: Friends Don’t Let Friends Date Dumb

Chapter 2

  1. How does living according to license (i.e. doing whatever we can instead of what we should) wind up limiting our freedom? (See page 21-22 in the book or look up 1 Cor 6:12.)
  2. How can we fight the temptation to date (or do anything) because others are doing it? (See page 23 in the book or look up Matt 5:14-16.)
  3. Have you known anyone who said they wanted to date “just for fun,” but seemed to have more serious (or even desperate) motives? What do you think was actually driving them?
  4. What can make it difficult to be honest about our motives and intentions for dating? (See page 27 in the book.)
  5. What can we do to keep our dating life focused on building relationships, instead of chasing experiences? (See page 24-25 in the book.)
  6. Why is God more concerned with why we do what we do, than He is with what we do? (See page 29-30 in the book.)

Chapter 3

  1. How can the opinion and regard of someone we want to date yet barely know hold so much power over us? (See page 31 in the book.)
  2. Why is dating for status so common and how could Christ’s example of humility transform how we date? (See page 33 in the book or look up Philippians 2:5-8.)

  5. How could the reality that sexual intimacy is not bad, but dangerous, change the way we regard sex and fight sexual temptation? (See page 40 in the book or look up 1 Thes 4:6-8.)
