Christian relationships dating kissing
Advice: The Bible has nothing specifically to say about single Christian women dating.
In Biblical times marriages were arranged by fathers, but the Bible has some principles that would apply to that question.
Let's talk about getting physical during dating relationships. Everybody has an opinion, from "don't even make eye contact" to "you can do anything but have sex." How is a Christian teen supposed to know what to do? First things first though, if your parents have said that you are not allowed to date, then you must obey their rules.
First it's just kissing, then it's fondling, then hands are making their way under clothes, and before you know it, everybody wants more more more. Yeah, it may be an old stereotype, but it's no secret that, as a teenager especially, it is often really hard to control ourselves physically.
Matthew says that "the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." Why is it that our bodies rebel against our minds when it comes to sexual purity?
Simply put, God created sex to be pleasurable, that's why our bodies desire it and all the sensations that come with it.
But sex was created to be enjoyed only in the context of marriage between a husband and wife.
So the idea of avoiding all physical contact while dating is more of a preventative measure so that the couple isn't tempted to have sex before they're married.
