Is Kissing before Marriage Really a Sin? - Christian Dating Advice
When did the word programming turn into religion and romance? Is stupidity a side effect for a born again christain? I think it is better to stay till maraige but my fear is that girl who will just accept u without trying to know more about u. My dear friend, i understand what you are trying to say, i had an apostiolc faith background, for many years after i spent close to 5yrs at deeper life.
Well i guess you are a deeper life member, if you fall in love, what is stoping you, love is in the bible, but pls dont furnicate. I am a lady so i understand you better. Plz i nid your views. In my opinion, christian dating is fundamentally not a sin. However, the motive is crucial. Are you doing 'trial and error', seeing if this one will work out or if she is the best for you?
That is the popular version of dating and in my opinion is not God's perfect will. Secondly, christian dating should be with the ultimate aim to be married. Before you date someone, ask yourself "is this someone I can actually marry? You are quite young and what I know is that successful marriage comes with a certain level of spiritual, physical and emotional maturity. You must honestly assess yourself and judge if you are mature enough to begin to consider marriage. You are not too young; I know a couple of young successful couples, but it is a very thin thread to tread I must tell you.
Firstly,according to the scripture is not Good for a child of God,if u read colosian 3vs 2,roman 8 vs 13,mathew 5 vs 28,galatian 5 vs Secondly,NO way u can date a Girl you wil to satan devil because it serves as tools for devil,one day the girl wil come and visit u,sitting on ur bed or bench or any other sitting material, and remember ur FLESH,before u know anything you will have fall wil the lady leviticus 17 vs 11 it is better for you to wait for your time till ur WEDDING DAY.

God bless…I believe we will soon see our King. I am looking up for my redemption draweth nigh. Greetings Jack, Blessings to you and yours. What an awesome article. What a great reminder to the church. My husband and I have a heavy burden in our hearts. We both know that the Bible teaches us that Jesus loves the sinner, but hates the sin. Our church has had an incredible influx of homosexuals come into the church, especially in our youth ministry not just as visitors, but becoming members of our church.
We know from experience that as Christians we are to grow and mature in the Word and our walk, and that these changes do become evident in our lives. We are noticing as time goes by a year, two, three even four, that these dear ones continue to show traces and mannerisms of the lifestyle that held them enslaved and in bondage in their old way of living.
My husband and I continue to reach out to them in love, encouraging them with the Word of God, but as a church, as the body of Christ, when do we intervene? We have shared with them that as Christians we are to show fruits of a changed person and life. But as a church at what point do we take a stand and address these issues that continue unresolved? Thank you so much Mrs. I apologize that this is so long…. I love that you work with youth and you are right that this is not being addressed in the church.
I would go through Ephesians 5: NO immoral immoral refers to sexual immorality , impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Live as children of light 9 for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth 10and find out what pleases the Lord. Paul writes to the Galatians 5: They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whateverc you want.
It is black and white. The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. I would use these at your next youth Bible study and we cannot rationalize these imperative commands away. If they continue in this lifestyle, then they are most certainly not saved. Talk to the pastor. I wish I was close to your church as I would come to speak to them, the church, and your pastor.
We must flee temptation, how much more so should we not continue in sin. Jesus warned in Matt 7: As a pastor, we cannot allow unrepentant sexual immorality in it…I will not and I have to give an account to God! Yolanda…you inspired me to give this sermon and perhaps it will reflect what God thinks about homosexuality and what the Bible teaches. I feel I know the answer but need to have it confirmed. Would it be a sin for a christian who knows that same sex marriage is a sin perform the wedding ceremony for her niece to another female. Would I be commiting a sin by performing the ceremony?
Thank you Patricia for your question about marrying a same-sex couple. If it is clearly sin in the Bible and those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom as we read in Galatians 5, Eph 5? Sometimes making a right choice is not always popular just as making a popular choice is not always right. Have we become a society where you can do what you want and just pray to God and be forgiven? What about two male friends that did have a relationship but one got out and the other continued in the lifestyle? Lots of questions, lots of viewpoints.
My friend, thank you for your question. It is not me who justifies calling homosexuality a sin. The word dinosaur is not in the Bible either even though we know that existed. It first appeared in and was enormously popular, being reprinted about once a year! But, does the Bible teach against the concept of homosexuality? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.
Here is what it means according to Greek dictionaries: The complete word study dictionary: New Testament electronic ed. This is sin, no matter what people say, just as those things listed in conjunction with homosexuality. Can a person claim to be a Christian and live in sin and go on sinning and believe they are saved?
Read 1 John chapter 3. I pray this help. I am not justifying any condemnation of sin like homosexuality…. Once again Pastor…Great response…Viewpoints, If you still have questions go one page into the back comments…With the legalization of gay marriages in many states, we had a lot of confusion at the end of into Any questions you may still have will be addressed there by pastor and many others…I know it is confusing to many, esp those using newer translations of the Bible.
People are pressuring the churches to accept and many are because they have become so interested in the money that more members and tithing brings in than they are the truth.
Is Kissing before Marriage Really a Sin?
Sad thing is, those ministers have a special punishment in Hell awaiting for we are warned what happens to those who change the word of God! God Bless and Good Luck! We are warned to be involved in rescuing the perishing and the good news means nothing without warning them of the bad news that a person who refuses to repent and trust in Christ has judgment coming upon them…for all of their sins and again, not just homosexuality.
The purpose of a man and a woman getting married is to sanctify their joining together in holy matrimony which is a holy Christian Marriage. Marriages of two homosexuals of the same gender is unholy and is a satanic mockery of a Christian Marriage. Homosexual marriages cannot be sanctified.

Has our American Leaders given over to Satanic Principles in their approval of the joining together of homosexuals in a unholy marriage? I pray that many will learn the truth of your righteousness and will except your son, Jesus Christ for their personal Savior before it is too late for them.
In Jesus name, Amen. March 18, Time: Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
I appreciate your website. I found out recently that my son has married a man and is now involved in a divorce proceeding. He was raised in a Christian single parent household and has, as far as I can tell, been involved in homosexual activity all of his late teen and adult life. He is 36 years old.
I have mixed feelings between guilt, somehow wondering if something I did has caused this, and extreme shame and bewilderment. Not regroup for the next man. Well, I could go on and on and on……it feels better just to express my thoughts. I am really trying to understand this. I am so sorry about the situation with your son. This must be very painful. You are not responsible for his choices as an adult. I am sure you did the best job you knew how and it is better that your son has a Christian parent that cares for their soul than have no one who cares or condones it and will not pray for him.
I will pray for him and that is all you can do. The Bible teaches that God grants repentance 2 Tim 2: Just try to keep praying for Him and leave the results up to God for even a Saul murdering Christians because a Paul. My niece has chosen to be a lesbian and marry another women. She is a believer of Jesus Christ, but I question her sincerity, As a child I knew she was, now she is hard to get to talk about Jesus and I worry for her salvation.
OSAS apply to her also? The greatest act of love we can display to those we know is to speak the truth and not sugar coat what God says. That is the fate of not just the unrepentant sexually immoral but all unrepentant liars, murderers, idolaters, and sorcerers Rev Ask her to read 1st John chapter 3 and see if she still thinks she is a Christian.
This woman has deceived herself into believing she is a Christian but truly no Christian continues to live in sin and continues to practice sin. All you can do is pray for her and there her what I wrote above. We are told to take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. Pray for them, love them, show them the grace of God, but you must also warn them of the coming wrath of God, not just on the sexually immoral, but on all who refuse to repent and turn away and forsake their sins and then place their trust completely in Christ Dan The greatest act of love is to warn them that practice sexual immorality of any kind and those who falsely teach that it is acceptable to God that unless they also repent, they will eternally perish Luke Loving someone enough to risk rejection, scorn, ridicule, and persecution displays more grace and love than you might believe.
I am struggling with a 21 year old daughter who has been in a dating relationship with men, but has a best friend, who she is extremely close to. They have kissed quite a bit, off and on for the last few months, and consider it just a friendship thing, and that this behavior is okay. How can I back that up biblically? This is certainly sin. Would she be willing to go to the pastor and talk with him about? It is not natural for women to kiss other women on the mouth, especially French kissing. Does your daughter even attend a church?
How about her friend the woman friend of hers? I know that this is totally contrary to the natural order of things. I find it repulsive too and that you sense it is wrong is more evidence that this is wrong too. Maybe you should talk to your pastor to see what he says and if he could come and visit you and your daughter at your home.
Does your daughter still live with you? Thank you my friend. And also, thank you for taking the trouble to comment. I am in a same sex marriage, and have often wondered if we gave up sex, could we go to Heaven? We are both Christians. Although our attraction, love, and devotion to each other is genuine, I have often struggled with the issue of homosexuality and God. We have promised each other we will take care of the other one for as long as we live.
So I know I have a good thing with her. She knows I have wondered about this and have read books on it. Thank you for your question and honesty. I suggest you read 1st John chapter 3. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men. There are dozens more too but as a final warning, in Rev My opinion is useless. Those who practice such things as you are doing without repentance meaning turning away from and forsaking your sins and faith in Christ will not end well at all Rev I will pray God helps you do the right thing but 1st John 3: Finally 1st John 3: Indeed, time may be short.
If Christ returns today, you are in big trouble or if you die unexpectedly. Back in I went home for Christmas when I was pregnant with my son when my husband was in the U. I went and saw she was on her knees praying,and I asked why she was crying. A question and answer session began, my mother basically refusing to state the issue.
What has my brother done to cause such anquish in my mother? I asked, did he get some girl pregnant? My brother is a homosexual, doomed to the 2nd death, to exist no more. I am looking for some help on a related issue. Anyway he constantly dresses as a woman at home and is concidering and exploring the possability of changing his sex. The bible says I should not divorce my husband, but I struggle as I feel I am being forced into a kind of pseudo homosexual relationship.
And if it is a reason for concern, at what point, does it move me from a sound christian marriage into something sinful? I am so lost. This is a very hard place to be. What did your own pastor say about this situation? Did you talk to him about it? If so, what did he say and if not, why not talk with him about it very soon. It appears for sure your husband is not saved. Reading 1st John chapter 3 makes this very clear.
The only thing you can do is that this man be saved for only God can change the heart Prov You and he are headed toward different eternities. Yours is indescribable Rev 22 and his is horrible Rev He cannot help but be a child of the Devil until he believes in Christ which takes the Spirit of God. How do you be a Christian and support homosexuality when you know it is a sin you are supporting? Is gay marriage even acknowledged by God? Leaders are fallible, God is not, I can only turn to God to help me throughout this sickness he is my only true spiritual father anyway.
My friends call me homophobic but idc. Thank you sincerely for this page of truth someone finally understands my views on homosexuality. We all are sinners but we must stop sinning. The Bible is clear about the fate of those who live in sexual immorality Rev Every other sin[e] a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. All sin is against God so all sin does hurt others, including us foremost and no child of God continues to live in sin, otherwise they are not a child of God 1 John 3.
Talk to your pastor about this and see why you need to be brought to repentance and faith in Christ. When I was at a younger age, I always heard about loving someone with same sex is a sin. Unexpectedly, I met a friend who is a lesbian. She became my friend for 6 months until our relationship goes deeper. I never expected this but it happened. How many times I tried to leave her but its not that easy to do.
She is doing everything for me and she said that if i will leave her , everything is worthless. When shes praying, shes always asking GOD not to take me away her. This is something melting my heart.
What should I do? What should I do to avoid the person I really love? This melts my heart. I can only tell you what the Bible teaches and as Rev Please re-read this article and the Scriptures to see that this lifestyle is not the life of those who have repented turned away from and forsaken sin. Thank you for the thoughtful comments and your article on the issues of same sex marriage. What a great article Pastor Jack! I appreciate the massive time replying and praying for these dear folks. I joined you and others in prayer as I read their stories.
I was reading through the epistle of Jude the other night and could not help thinking of the apostate Christian church in America and Europe which does not call out gay relations including gay marriage as sin. In fact the opposite, many of these Churches endorse gay marriage. Listen especially to the following way Jude calls out the apostasy in the church itself. He also gives a stern warning to those he is addressing members of the church for allowing such activities Jude vs 3 and ff:.
But now I find that I must write about something else, urging you to defend the faith that God has entrusted once for all time to his holy people. The condemnation of such people was recorded long ago, for they have denied our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
God has kept them securely chained in prisons of darkness, waiting for the great day of judgment. Like unthinking animals, they do whatever their instincts tell them, and so they bring about their own destruction. For they follow in the footsteps of Cain, who killed his brother. Like Balaam, they deceive people for money. And like Korah, they perish in their rebellion. They are like shameless shepherds who care only for themselves. They are like clouds blowing over the land without giving any rain. They are like trees in autumn that are doubly dead, for they bear no fruit and have been pulled up by the roots.
They are like wandering stars, doomed forever to blackest darkness. The Lord is coming with countless thousands of his holy ones 15 to execute judgment on the people of the world. He will convict every person of all the ungodly things they have done and for all the insults that ungodly sinners have spoken against him. They brag loudly about themselves, and they flatter others to get what they want. Show mercy to still others, but do so with great caution, hating the sins that contaminate their lives.
All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! I am well aware that we all sin, Christians and non-Christians alike.
God commands that Christians turn from sin repent daily though. We are not to embrace sin as a lifestyle. God help the church to be as brave as you are Pastor Jack in bringing this sensitive topic forward. I am 23 years old guy. I was brought up in a vibrant Christian home. While growing up, I would watch movies and try playing out the female characters. I out grew this when I was 13 but the reality was now I start gesticulating like a woman. I have the talent of singing, growing up I was a soprano singer I started listen to worldly music.
When I got to the senior secondary level. I have mastered the feminine mannerism and it was now an addendum to my persona. My classmates teased me calling me a boy girl. I was denied a prefect status because I was girlie. I was not moved. After secondary, I stayed at home for almost a year waiting to gain admission to a tertiary institution.
I spent most of my leisure time watching pornography. Then, I started masturbating. At first, it started as an act to reassure myself of being a man. Even after getting into the University I continued in this sinful act. That night before going to bed, I watched pornography and masturbated. I woke up in the early homes of the morning, I realised I had a wet dream and this time there was something different. I recalled it was with a male figure. I repented and prayed. I went back to my addictive act some months later.
Should a Christian Dating Couple Breakup If They Fall to Sexual Sin?
Then, I re-dedicated my life to God on the 3rd of July Before the end of that year, I went back to my addictive way of masturbating to pornography. By July , while I writing my final project. I was watching a popular television series and I realized that I had an arousal when two male characters kissed. I was confused and afraid so prayed to go for forgiveness. I stopped masturbating for a month, I enrolled at a 40days Christian Recovery from Addiction Program. I had two or three same sex wet dreams. I watch some YouTube Christian videos on how we open certain spiritual door for the enemy to creep in.
At that point, I made up up m min to stop masturbating this was September Through October I did not experience this sexual dreams. The week I started thinking and thanking God, I had a dream again. I can tell my parents because they seem judgmental. At the crossover service, I prayed to God to uproot any seed of homosexuality in my life.
I feel within me that he answered but on getting back home. I was my bed, I dozed off and I just felt something lie on me. I woke up, utter some word of prayer and slept. Since then, the dream have on and off. I am still holding on and praying that he answers me. You are under spiritual attack I believe. Try praying and reading at least one chapter before bed. God is not finished with all of us…. I will pray for you and stay in the Word of God. Even try fasting and soak your minds in the Bible before you go to bed.
I have a niece that is in this deceptive lifestyle that surrounds herself with people of the like. We have locked horns on this, I have shown her in the Word where this type of relationship is not of God.
It had come to the point of her closing herself to what I was saying. It was not easy for me to stomach, and still at this time, it is hard to stomach, especially since she informed us that they are getting married. It took me quite a while to come to the point of loving the sinner, but hating the sin. It hurts not only me, it hurts her parents, and her grandmothers, she insist on liberating herself on social media, hurting and embarrassing my family even more.
I have given her to God and leave her in His hands to deal with, because she has such a strong rebellious spirit. You have done all you can. Only God can change the human heart Prov Is that what your pastor told you? Have you talked with him? Only God can reach her…and if we try to do this, we can only drive her further away from God and from you. I am thinking I am bisexual but have not told anyone about my thoughts. I want to go to heaven and be loved by my family still.
I am very scared for what will come for my coming out. I would fear God more than your family. Your family cannot judge you and send you to a place of eternal separation from God and saved family members.
