Joshua Mike-Bamiloye cautions the younger generation on relationship matters.

Nigerian Christian film maker Joshua Mike-Bamiloye has advised the younger generation of Christians to remain focused on the essence of courtship and relationships. He made this statement on social media recently. Also, he admonished that the Younger Christian Generations (YGC) should remain disciplined and avoid being deceived by the trends on social media.

Furthermore, Mike-Bamiloye talked about boyfriend and girlfriend relationships which are fast taking over our society. According to the gospel film maker, many persons are into boyfriend and girlfriend relationships with the intention of having sex unending. He stated that it is not acceptable. However, if the intention of the relationship is for marriage, then it is fine. More so, both partners should also be of age.

Jaymikee, as he is fondly called, stated that dating and courting is a period of learning about your partner. It is also a period that affords you the opportunity to understand each other, have fun while preparing, praying and planning for the future (marriage). 

Below is his tweet:

"Dear YGC (younger generation Christians), boyfriend and girlfriend as a child of God is a NO. Dont let the media and trend sway you. When youre dating someone, its in the context of courtship with marriage in view, not for cruise catching. Ill like to elaborate this tweet for the sake of those who genuinely want to learn and understand better. 

"We are in the season where this topic seems to be slowly fading from among we Christians while the worldly standards are louder than ever before especially through the media. So Im glad weve created a bit of a buzz so we can discuss and learn.

"Movies and TV shows portray dating to be acceptable among youngsters and we see what goes on amongst them. As Christians, dating/courting should be between two intentional adults with marriage in view. Ill dive deeper into it in a sec.

"When I mentioned boyfriend and girlfriend, I wasn't referring to it as a name or a title but the ACT and the INTENT itself (romantic relationship) as it was targeted at the YOUNGER GENERATION CHRISTIANS, that is, not yet of marriageable age.

"We do not follow trend by getting into romantic relationships for the fun of it or to satisfy an urge. Its a NO. As Christians, dating/courting is where we learn more and understand each other, have fun while preparing, praying and planning for the future (marriage).

"So you see that my tweet isnt about what two adults call each other, but about what two youngsters ENGAGE in, which was why the words were quoted.

''Some ask What if I have a bf/gf to: study with share thoughts and ideas with play and have fun with pray with etc.? Dear YGC, these are what FRIENDS are for, You dont need a bf/gf to achieve them, Youll only be setting yourself up for heavy temptations and emotional battles.

"God's will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin. Then each of you will control his own body and live in holiness and honor not in lustful passion like the pagans who do not know God and his ways. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 NLT

"Our feelings were given to us by God, and Its important for us to always glorify God with it. It always pays to be patient. Dont forget that God makes everything beautiful in its time.

"And to the Christian brothers that have no plans for marriage but enjoy asking out different sisters just to taste and drop, your time is coming And those that use God said on 5 sisters at once, your thunder is still processing his clearance papers. Se what? Selah."
