Why Courtship is Not Fundamentally Flawed

I thought this deserve it's own thread from the "Why COurtship is Fundamentally Flawed". There have been many reactions to it. Of course the Maxwells had to retaliate. How hypocritical they accuse the author of unBiblical thinking when their own model is hardly Biblical.

Edited to fix broken link - please just cut off the http:// prefix, no need to replace . with the word DOT.

Just FYI, the person who writes the blog you linked to is not the Maxwells, although her blog is somewhat similarly named.

I was going to read what she wrote but then realized she wrote 7 installments on the subject!

Just one thing I've never been clear about, how is courtship any more biblical than dating? Where are the verses that tell people to court?

They're in the book of hezekiah

To the bolded, brilliant! :lol:

Courtship vs. dating isn't mentioned in the Bible. Those who demand it from their followers seem to use a mish-mash of cherry-picked verses starting with honoring your father and mother, depending heavily on that ultimate misogynist, Paul, with a touch of Ezekiel for verisimilitude.

Here's that unmarried asshole Gothard's take on it complete with his chosen bible verses:

      My sweet pup was diagnosed with a brain tumor in September. She passed away in my arms on Thanksgiving morning. It all happened so fast. She didn't want to eat anything the day before, but prior to that was ok. Knew it was near time and had booked an appointment to take her next week. However, she decided for me. She was only 8 and really was one of the best dogs. She never met a stranger, human or dog. Life isn't the same without her.

      I made my first Granny Square! After nearly 30 years of knitting and crocheting this was a project I never did. Until now! I needed something to do with my rest of very colourful yarn and now I am very happy. I need to try different needles with my yarns but I think I found something nice for the future.
      I needed only 3 different youtube videos until I found a person who explained the concept slowly and repetitive and with words I can understand. I hate when these tutorials make me feel dumb.

      Someone please remind me to buy peanut butter. Seriously, I have been meaning to get some for at least three weeks, and everytime I remember, the shops are already closed!

      You know what I hate most about subtle racism? The gaslighting. Stop cosplaying as a nice person and say it with your chest.

      We had to put our 14 year old dachshund, Trinket, down today.  She was fine Thursday, but by mid-morning yesterday, it was apparent that something was really wrong,  She had zero energy, lost her appetite and began walking into corners.  By morning I knew it was time for her to have her final visit to the vet.  She had lost about a pound and a half recently.  RIP, Trinket!

      Horrific! A 6 year old boy was murdered, and mother severly injured, in a hate crime in Chicago. Reports say they are both Palestinian Muslims and were specifically targeted because of that. Thankfully the man who did it is in custody 
      This is pure evil
