Physical boundaries in christian dating relationships
So maybe you are a dating couple who constantly profess with your lips your commitment to sexual purity in your dating relationship, yet with your actions you repeatedly reject its possibility and reality.
Maybe you are doing good in your relationship so far and desire to keep the pursuit of purity strong.
Scripturally speaking, the result of the process—godly Christian men and women marrying and raising families to the glory of God—is far more important than the method they use to achieve that result.
"Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" (1 Corinthians , NKJV).
As in all things, the unity of the body of Christ should be of utmost importance in our minds, regardless of personal choices others make pertaining to issues on which the Bible is silent.Although we managed to save sex until our wedding night, it was all the “not so bad” stuff that would lead us to tears and our knees before the Lord, asking for forgiveness and a fresh start.In the first half of our dating relationship, we definitely did it wrong.As stated before, during this time there should be little or no physical contact, as this is something that should wait until marriage (1 Corinthians -20).Courtship takes the position that the two people have no physical contact at all (no touching, no hand-holding, no kissing) until marriage.
