When we define a relationship by what goes on physically, we forget the qualities that really make for a healthy, lasting relationship—qualities like compatibility, respect, and shared values and interests.These parts of a relationship are more important than sex, whether people are married or not.But please don't underestimate the value of a kiss—or its power.When deep, passionate kissing goes on for long, it's simply a warm-up for sex.And I will do all I can to stop that lie that continues to perpetuate and rob our children, and often brings shame to the picture of Christ and his bride.In keeping with last week’s post about being “set apart”, Christians need to be asking ourselves why that difference hasn’t shown up in our approach to finding a marriage partner.How are you supposed to grow closer together if you can't show your love, affection and commitment to each other in a more passionate way than kissing?Besides, in most relationships, kissing comes into the picture within a couple of weeks. The Bible very clearly views sexual intercourse as an expression of love belonging only to married couples. It's also a spiritual interchange that binds two people's hearts and souls together.
Trying to get a sexual charge, a couple is likely to keep going further, becoming more physically intimate.
I think it’s one of Satan’s biggest knee-slappers, and I think the modern system of dating has a lot to do with why our marriages are failing.
I want Christians to think from a biblical as well as logical perspective in the hopes of saving their children from unnecessary tragedy–PURE CONCERN.
Those are great questions, and I thank you for asking them. When you have sex with someone, you're supposed to stay together forever.
And that means you should only have sex with the person you have married.
