I was wondering if there are any good sources(such as the Holy Fathers, the Holy Bible) on dating from the Orthodox perspective.There is a lot of dating advice out there for Christians but all of it comes from the Protestant, evangelical point of view.
which really calls to question not only the dating game, but also other forms of unwholesome premarital courting(these days many skip dating alltogether and just head straight for bed).
There are about 5 million Orthodox Christians in this country.
The Orthodox Church embodies and expresses the rich spiritual treasures of Eastern Christianity.
It was distinct, though not necessarily opposed, to that which developed in the Western portion of the Roman Empire and subsequent Medieval Kingdoms in the West.
While Christianity in the West developed in lands which knew the legal and moral philosophy of Ancient Rome, Eastern Christianity developed in lands which knew the Semitic and Hellenistic cultures.
