Many are NOT going to like what I have to say.
And that’s ok…I’m not addressing this to them. Those that are really seeking the Lord and are wanting to live holy will listen to what to Spirit has to say.
Is kissing ok for a single Christian to do?
This is not a quick answer. Of course there is an answer, but the answer will not give you insight to what’s behind the answer. So let’s explore the reasoning.
All physical intimacy was created and comes from the Lord. The Bible says all things come from Him and there wasn’t anything that was created that didn’t come from Him (John). When we look at what God created, we must look at its function. God created everything to has a specific function, a purpose, a role.
What role does kissing have?
When we kiss, what happens? We are really feeling the person we kiss. We want to kiss some more, hug more, touch more, do more…Why is that? It’s because God creates anything to go beyond, go deeper, go more intimate. So when we kiss we want to do more than that. Kissing can ultimately lead to the best part of intimacy, SEX.
Now, is that a BAD thing? No it isn’t. God CREATED sex. So the One who made it, has a purpose for it. God wanted us to have sex. Sex with our spouse, ONLY. The Bible says to not live in temptation, not live in uncleanliness, not live in inordinate affection.
So, are we to stop kissing?
Ask yourself, can you stop yourself from feeling sexual? No, you cannot. It’s impossible because God created it to make you feel that way. And anything you feel and desire and visualize, you will eventually do.
Think about this:
Each person you KISS and do NOT marry, you just kissed someone else’s spouse.
Eventually, when you do eventually meet and marry your spouse, you will have those memories with you in your marriage…
