many thanks, - Dieter Hi Dieter It is great to see you being serious about keeping your relationship with your girlfiend pleasing to God.
As one poet has said,"dating is a dangerous game, temptation should be its name!
That’s especially true if the person you are with has little desire to stop. I’ve literally talked to a girl who said, “Jessie, I don’t know what to do.
My boyfriend is always telling me to slow down when we’re alone together, and asking me to respect his boundaries, and I just don’t want to.” Not saying it couldn’t happen, ladies!
But when it comes to other behaviour, you must use your own wisdom as to whether it is sexual or not. There is a type of hug that is completely non-sexual.
so i was wondering what boundaries should we set in order for us to stray away from temtation, sin and that in our relationship so that it is pleaseing to God and also what can we do to strengthen our relationship in a Godly way were we are encouraging each other and building each other in our relationships with God ???
If a girl allows a guy access to her body, those hormones we talked about earlier kick in and completely override his better sense.
Which is not to say that men are like the Incredible Hulk, unable to control themselves. But God designed him to be intoxicated by one woman’s beauty and then take the lead toward physical intimacy.
It includes sexual touching, lustful behaviour & even what we look at.
The Bible says, to avoid even a hint of sexual immorality. Our lives are to be free of even the slightest notion of the sexual (unless married and only then with our partner).
" Your question sounds very much like"how far can we go? Unfortunately, while we would like a definitive answer, the bible doesn’t lay down a set of hard and fast specific boundaries, but rather gives a set of ‘principles’ for relationships.
