Should Christians kiss before marriage or is kissing a sin? On this video, we talk about Christian dating physical boundaries. Many people interested in the issue of Christian dating or christian courtship have read the book, I kissed dating goodbye by Joshua Harris and have found that they're not sure if it works for them. Is it possible to be faithful and still kiss before marriage? Or perhaps a better question, what are some healthy principles for boundaries in dating?

i really enjoyed the point on how relationships can sometimes end in not so favorable terms, but with a purpose that God may be trying to teach us something about ourselves. kinda something He's been speaking to me about recently. very happy that this type of content exists
Something to consider. If Jesus condemns the act of looking with lust (where there is no physical contact), where do you think kissing fits in? Is it possible to kiss someone you’re dating, someone you’re very attracted to, without lust?
“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
So great to hear your views on this. I think relationships all depend on the people in them. Like I’ve never had a dating or courting relationship because God knows me and knows that would confuse me and that physical contact means a lot to me so hasn’t put me in a position where I would get hurt that way, but has taught me through friendships and family about emotional boundaries etc that will help me in any future relationships. I don’t know what my boundaries will be in a relationship because I will discuss this with the guy and we will come up with a set of boundaries that work for us. I think Christians need to do more thinking for themselves, and read books or listen to preaches whilst thinking for themselves and talking to God about what they learn and not taking that persons perspective as solid fact
Parents kiss their children, is that a sin/bad? Of course not! I live by the word of God, but I also don't believe we have to live our lives constrained in a bubble which blocks contact from the outside world. Fornication IS a sin yes and God rather that we avoid creating temptations for ourself; so oral sex, foreplay, etc would be out of the question, but kissing? That doesn't have to be viewed as something of sexual nature, it's definitely a way for people to show some form of affection. Most importantly, it is up to each individual and their willpower as to how they can defy any type of temptations or sexual thoughts Satan puts into their heads. If you personally feel that kissing is going to tempt you to fornicate, then maybe YOU shouldn't do it.
I really like how you approach these controversial topics and the statements you use because people can so easily misunderstand or disagree with strong reactions, but the way you say it disarms quickly. What I would say is that it takes a person who knows themselves to set boundaries for themselves. Eg. One might find that kissing would lead their mind to unholy thoughts, and for another it might not, or for another just holding hands might do the same. So knowing what your tendencies are will help with knowing where to set these lines if keeping thoughts pure is what you want
Honestly, I would spend-time with my girlfriend when God provides me a girlfriend one day. That way me and her will continue serving the Lord, and put our minds on to him; even spend a lot of time with knowing more about each-other as our second thing to do before we even kiss or hug.
No no no! Do not kiss or embrace. Do not touch her at all! I had a disastrous relationship when I was in my 30s that almost destroyed me! In fact don't even go out with her! I'm a proponent of permanent singleness and celibacy! Not just voluntary celibacy, but I wish I could go so far as to become a eunuch. I want no distractions that might cause me to lose my faith in the Lord! Because it almost happened. Eternity in the Lake of Fire is not worth a few years of sex!
I would not kiss on the lips until my wedding day, but a peck on the cheek would be fine with me. I know my limits and things that tempt to me. Edited to add that this was an excellent video and you made great points against the "I kissed dating goodbye" book and how the viewpoints in that book can lead one to unhealthy or simply, incorrect views on dating, relationships, and God. Thank you for producing such a relatable and God honoring video!
You should check out a book called 31 prayers for my future wife. Although its not an sda book I do believe that our young people should read it. It's basic thought is even prior to meeting the person we need to pray for each other. pray to show God's love to the other person and pray for the character for the other person, their family and their daily life. Any way i'm glad your doing this ministry.
I love this. You approached it without making anyone feel guilty. Not that the other videos on this purposefully make people feel guilty, but I feel other Christian videos on this can give off such a judgmental vibe, but not the case in yours... thank you!!
If you do get married, even before you are married you do have a spouse and you should honor them even if you don’t know who they are, God knows. What would your wife/husband say if he/she walked in on you kissing someone or cuddling with someone on the couch. If your spouse would consider it cheating don’t do it before you are married.
As a young teen setting the boundaries very strongly helped me avoid getting engrossed in an unhealthy relationship. Now a young adult, I appreciate how those values helped put me in a place of really valuing my worth highly and protectig myself from bad influences. I am not sure I would be so legalistic with it now, but I am certain I would feel strongly about letting a man know what I was and wasn't going to be comfortable with. Much to learn, but being clear early in helps to weed out the fakes from the real deal
I am not looking to date anyone for quite a few years, but I think physical contact is a beautiful way of showing love for another (in friendship or in a love relationship) and I would only allow this as a form or trust between myself and
I think it's ok, and another one, no need to rush kissing a girl if your relationship is just geting started. First build a foundation around your relationship. Courting is different from in a relation ,you start all over again. Even a lips of a woman is worth the wait.
Good view. I think it is possible to kiss and still honor God, especially if you have a routine of praying together and communicating about these things regularly. ❤️ It is refreshing to hear this view.
Do your best to wait until marriage before kissing so that you can lead a pure relationship. But if you do end up kissing, please do not beat yourself up over it. It's normal and you can always pick up from where you left off and learn about God from your humanity and mistakes. God bless!
all of this is just an opinion based on a book written based on an opinion of the writer. How cool is this?
I'm not saying that the book is unreliable, I just started to read the Boy meets Girl myself. But this video...please just say it is a synopsis of a book that you've read.
My suggestion is you share more principles focusing on Bible based values. Yes like rev./pastors...
At this point I'm confused, Idk what to do I've fallen short of God's grace so many times and this topic is one of them. Imma be completely honest "making out" with someone will lead to temptation I've been doing it for 2 weeks and every time I end up touching my girlfriend's butt. Even though we're both Christian and there is communication(no one is perfect and everyone sins) , so can someone tell me what to do and what to say to her so we keep our relationship but keep it godly as well
Apparently, religion can make people silly. Is this fellow trying to sell the idea that boys and girls who may be in their early or even late twenties, have not yet kissed another person, and should not ? What planet is he living on? There's a pious namby-pambyness about this brand of "religion" that most of the world would tend to reject. Kissing for these people must be a very mechanical and orderly affair, with rules and regulations as to how often, how much, how long, how pleasurable. His girl friend kissed him on the neck and he almost fainted! What kind of malarkey is this? This is a very unwholesome posture toward life. There is nothing worse that can happen to a couple than to go virgins to the altar and discover not long after the nuptials that for one reason or another they are sexually incompatible. There are things that had better be discovered before marriage than tragically after. And what would he have to say about the buildup of sexual tension in normal people, boys and girls both, starting at around age fourteen? What does this pilgrim have to say about that delicate subject? Will he tell us what are his own practices in this regard? Somehow I doubt it very much. Kids, if you get into your twenties, and think that God is watching you in your privatest moments, then not only are you in a very strange place, but you are setting yourself up for some real problems. To say nothing of missing out on some of life's most delicious and profound, sweetest and most fulfilling moments.
God's shown me that a kiss is for a husband and a wife. Until she's your wife she belongs to her father. He hasn't given her to you yet. Don't do anything with her that you wouldn't do in front of her father! When she's your wife you'll be glad you waited to share that kiss, it'll be a holy one. "You may now kiss the bride." That and you won't have to repent for doing something unholy with another man's future wife. Trust me :)
Peck, maybe (no), making out, no. Cuddling and kissing was very very bad for my purity and led me down the path of destruction, I don't suggest it at all. This coming from someone who really wanted to do it right and waited very long before I made bad decisions. Heartache and alchol didn't help.
no kissing. and after marriage, sex in missionary only, through a hole in a sheet, in a dark room, for reproductive purposes only, and with both participants crying. still no kissing. kissing makes an angel lose its wings.
Kissing is okay as long as you dont let your hormones control u.we should control our hormones.i think pray together for God to help us to leavr sexual things for marriage.its because in movies,in books,in magazines,on dvds.thay advertise that its okay.i haf sexual encounters before with ex girlfriend.im not proud of that.i learned that sex is only for marraige.i think its better to not kiss if you know you someone who cant control your hormones.everytime that you feel your hormones take over when you kis or hold hands then two of you should go sit down imediatly and pray and adk God ti help you to control your hormones.we as men should train our self to back down emediatly when our hormones take over.by stop kissing when you feel like moving to next steo.an excercise you can do to helo both of you get in control of your hormoned is by holding each other and timing yourseves how many days you can go with out kissing ir holding hands.and in that time focus more on non physical activities that you both can do together.when you visit each other.and make shure that you are never allone with each other.and going in to each others rooms should be a defnet boundery
Proverbs 14:12 (KJV)
12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

15 The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.

This has got to be satirical because otherwise its totally ridiculous. Good thing you gave your heart to God because you are so homely, I can't imagine any woman being attracted to you. You are really a fool.
I really support what he is saying but I can help but mention Ephesians chapter 5 were it is stated to “flee from sexual immorality”. So it is dangerous to approach the mind set that it’s ok to get as close as you can without actually sinning. Fleeing from sexual immorality is not standing on the line, it is running as far away as you can. But like he also stating it can become unhealthy to not show affection and at a certain level of intimacy it would be completely not wrong to show affection through pda as Long as it is not causing you to lust.
I would consider my asexual who more a deist than Christian from what I understand is have some boundaries as long as is there is not sexual actions before marriage, I have no desire for sex myself so most of that goes out the window.
I don't personally consider kissing or cuddling or hand holding sexual or bad but that's just me.
