Christian dating and boundaries

Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? This may sound harsh, but sexual sin is a serious issue.God doesn’t want you to see how close to the line you can get. The man needs to bring this up and the earlier the better.And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power.Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? When you sin sexually, you are making God’s temple into a prostitute.When you become a Christian the Holy Spirit becomes indwelled inside of you.Because of this, when you sin sexually – you sin against God’s temple. “The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.If he doesn’t bring up important topics now, will he in marriage?I was dating a guy who said he was a Christian, but before we were official we held hands, cuddled, and made out.

The Bible tells us that our bodies are God’s temples.

When you find a guy who can deny his sexual desires while you are dating, you can trust him long term in a marriage relationship that he won’t cheat on you.

When sex enters a relationship confusion and expectations are changed – regret, shame, and self blame enter the relationship.

My thought was I’m still a “good” Christian girl because I wasn’t having sex. Since I know that I could easily slip back into sexual sin (especially if he wasn’t trying to protect us), I had to break up with my boyfriend. This question does not have a simple yes or no answer. First, answer these questions: How long have you been dating? In my previous dating situation, I was the one who realized and said that the boundaries were crossed every time. If you are the only one who cares about the boundaries, you have a problem. But this answer is coming from the dating perspective, not marriage.

Now, after giving my life to God and walking with the Holy Spirit, I want to obey God physically. But during my relationship with my ex-boyfriend, the Holy Spirit convicted my heart every time we went too far physically. Does hugging and cuddling lead to temptation to go further sexually? There is a difference between an innocent hug goodbye and an intense cuddle session. To help determine if hugging and cuddling will tempt you, it is important to examine both of your pasts. This is a sign that he is not spiritually ready to lead you or to be in a relationship. If your boyfriend keeps crossing the line and pushing boundaries and not seeming to care – RED FLAG.
