Christian dating is kissing ok
These must be avoided as much as possible with the Lord's help. Kissing should be out of the question there is no need to have that sort of contact before marriage.Even a kiss closed mouthed gives place to taking things a little further. Sure as the sun following rain even if it's not immediately afterward the temptation become greater and kissing can lead to some couples committing sin. Some coed friends and I were playing spin the bottle and it eventually landed on my “crush.” After we kissed, I couldn't sleep that night. I had definitely “awakened love before its time.” Which wasn’t smart, because there was no way it could end well.Later in life, when marriage actually was a possibility, each dating relationship carried the question of when we should first kiss.Christians who are courting before marriage, please be warned: kissing is like a master key that unlocks a strong door, once done, it's done, and your innocense is robbed. But if your standard is not expression of love whatsoever then that is your own principle, and not those of others.If you are a christian contemplating marriage, do not settle in for a lustful compromise of patting, caressing, clandestining in bodily contact (or perhaps kissing). You know what it is Eloy it's is just that but then I get so tired of people okaying even the most sincere tiny winy bit of contact even suggest a relationship as long as parents are in the home and then my friends telling me several month later, Guess what? Some believe in no touching, no holdiung hands, and no kissing on the cheek, but others accept all of these and do so sacredly.
I think after walking a girl to her door and then kissing her closed mouth on the cheek when saying good night is okay, but then also not kissing is equally ok.
Courtship is about getting to know a person that may be suitable for marriage. Lewis pointed out, there may be times when a husband needs to encourage his sexual instinct and desire.** Jack, where is this in scripture? Alan, "Courting" means they are NOT husband and wife yet. Pharisee-Anything quoted as truth that is outside of God's word is truth mingled with a lie. CS Lewis isn't to be quoted because Jesus said, "Thy word is truth," No CS Lewis's words. I don't believe it's okay to smoke Marijuana if you "don't inhale", nor do I believe most people can smoke cigarettes without getting addicted. Each person must decide if they can be true to themselves, their partner, AND God. A quick peck on the cheek is harmless but those long lingering ones on lips is asking for trouble. Men tend to me more easily aroused than women, so godly men should know their limit and draw the line before whatever excites them sexually.
Use the time to know them as your closest friend, that is what marriage is about. Treat them like they're your brother or sister, because until you say I do, that's exactly what they are in Christ. I thought the Apostle Paul said to abstain from every form of fleshly lust"This certainly seems to indicate that you don't think a man should be encouraged in his desire for his wife. I find it rare that a woman or a man can be in a "courting" relationship without considering sexual involvement. A quick hug is harmless, but those long lingering hugs may lead to problems. Women can kiss without being aroused as they tend to be more "romantic" and think it is sweet to kiss. It is when marriage[or dating] is based on sexual attraction that problems arise, I feel.
That's why we have so many women coming here after the fact of marrying unbelievers.
Beforehand, "I know my beliefs will pull him in, I'll be a good influence, he'll get saved." Eight months later, "why did I ever do that?
