The Commitment ==> "I hereby commit not to date an Unbeliever under any circumstance. I commit to stay pure, innocent, and abstanate before marriage. I commit not to dat until my love and relationship with God is complete! I will not date for Popularity but for Purpose. As God is my witness and My strength.
 
 
Note from T.J.==> If you follow God's way of doing thing's in your life you will not regret it. This goes for Dating as well as everything else, it is when you step out of God's plan is when things go bad and you will regret that for the rest of your life. below is a commitment that I challenge all to read and consider. Would you like to make that commitment before the Lord? Commitments are serious things do not say you will if you won't! Lieing to God is not taken lightly! If you would Like to make this commitment for yourself I ask that you do two things, first pray that commitment to God asking him to help you, and also email me at Superman86314@juno.com. I like to get a running tally up as to who has made this commitment and I would also like to pray for you. If you have any questions concerning this or any other paper on this site feel free to email me, and I will respond at my easiest convenience.
 
              Thanks, Your Friend in the Lord,
                     T.J. Torgerson
