Is romance in dating a sin?

    Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 1Cor 7:1
    So don’t touch, it LEADS to sin, but is not a sin. It is like saying “I am on a diet, I can not eat any chocolate.” But then open every bag that you can find and smell it, lick it, and sometimes take a little nibble. One of these days when you take that nibble you will not stop and then you will have broken your word not to eat chocolate. And who wants to eat a chocolate bar that is already open and been nibbled on. Save it for the one that pays the price to keep you forever. Just saying!

    I agree with Shalom touch of a woman can lead to sin.

    Sin is in the hebrew language means “missing the bulls eye”

    English language fails to explain action of sin in language terms hence many confused english speaking “christians” who believe touch of a woman and romance is “ok” for godly people…… Um no. Only in marriage…..

    Remember, even if someone has “nibbled your chocolate bar” there is someone who still wants you…Jesus Christ! He paid the price for all of us and cleanses all of us from our pasts(sexual and otherwise). There is always a fresh start in Him. Although, the consequences for past sin are still painful He can help you overcome! He can help you start over, start fresh and even feel virginal again.

    But yeah, romantic touching in dating is pretty near impossible to control in my personal experience. Don’t mess with it! At my age (31) I would even put one-on-one conversations in that category. Didn’t realize that when I was younger, but praise God only got emotional intimate with my husband to be. However, I remember feeling totally incapable of making a good decision at that time due to our emotional and physical intimacy. I prayed for God to lead my parents and he did, but I would not reccommend my path completely. It could have ended really badly. I wasn’t as wise as you girls, but I know God answered my highschool prayer, “may my next boyfriend be my husband.”

    Like Debi mentions in preparing in the “pie in the sky” story. “You think you are safe because your body is not there.” (referring to texting, chatting, emailing). After a period of time you will become very emotionally intimate with all this one-on-one sharing.
