Dating an ungodly man
Whatever you did, as you now think about it, does it inspire a comfortable peace or an uncomfortable shudder to remember that Father, Son and Holy Spirit observed it all?
Do you believe God was glorified or grieved by what He saw? I can tell you from literally hundreds of emails and personal conversations that the only people who really attempt to justify premarital sexual involvement (with a few exceptions for "just kissing") are those who would like to engage in it in the future or who are currently engaging in it.
Were you honest with the person about making a commitment to him or her before the Lord, or did you defraud or deceive that person in some way?
Was your for doing what you did to build that person up spiritually — to make that person "more holy" (Ephesians -29)?
As a good initial principle here, we should affirm that sex itself (and sexual activity in general) is not inherently negative or sinful.
On the contrary, in the proper context, it is a kind and good gift of God.
Still, the overwhelming majority of believers will only share that relationship with one person in their entire lives.
How can you say definitively that other things are wrong? Shouldn't our physical relationship "progress" as other aspects of our relationship deepen? I understand most physical stuff is wrong, but what about All good questions.We are to do this in light of what God has done for us in Christ and in light of Christ's impending return. For God did not call us to be impure, but to lead a holy life.Therefore, he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his holy spirit." Look closely at verse 6.In Song of Songs, God has given us a holy and beautiful picture of a marital sexual relationship, and everyone seems to be having an excellent time.Even there, however, God is clear that sex is "Do not arouse or awaken love before it so desires." (Song of Songs 2:7).
