Christian discussion groups on dating relationships Adult like chatrandom
We're not here to talk about STDs and teen pregnancy. because we know that something more than the physical has taken place.
We're here to talk about how great, meaningful, loving, and godly sex can be - when done under the right conditions. When someone is raped they don't just experience physical pain. I asked one of my Juniors when they were planning on having sex and they said, "I'm not sure... probably when I'm 22." We got to have an awesome dialogue about God's expectations for his sex life.
Even Paul managed to make it a focus when he talked about relationships. So why doesn't it ever come up when we talk about marriage with our students? " and at this point it's been damaged and lost it's beauty and shine and some petals have fallen off because of everyone touching it. " Or we have a really sticky piece of tape and we press it against someone's shoulder and take it off and go to someone else and press it against their shoulder and take it off and we say, "Every time, we lose our stickiness. Then crumple it up and ask people if they still want it.
We lose our ability to bond." We've thought of a thousand different ways to make Christians feel worthless about themselves when it comes to their sexual past.
And so he says - don't be unequally yoked with nonbelievers. Whoever seeks to keep their life will lose it and whoever loses their life will preserve it.
This definitely applies to our dating relationships. Giving our lives to Christ also includes our dating, our sex, our singleness, our marriage.
Christians don't treat others as objects to be consumed. If that's the case then their original partner that they should've married will go on to marry someone else (who also was meant for someone else). Our value isn't based on who we are or what we do but it's based on who God is and God is love and God is unchanging and so God will always love us and that will never change. It's all in this handy dandy and FREE relationship talk.A few years ago, I had just started “talking” to a guy from church, and I told him we should keep things on the down low.I didn’t see the need for everyone to find out too early on.I met a drunk girl on the streets of my hometown one day while out with a friend. She said, "I've had sex with a lot of people - but I've never made love with anyone." She had decided... There is no such thing as "friends with benefits."The thing is... You'd never compare it to someone who broke their arm once. People who are raped or molested experience physical pain, psychological pain, emotional pain, and spiritual pain. One of my youth told me a story about a girl who (Before I came to this church) asked, "Where in the Bible does it say that people can't have sex until marriage?
and culture had taught her that sex can be purely physical. our culture agrees with this (unless it's inconvenient for them). " And apparently (so the story goes) no one could answer her.
Regardless of when you say it - you still need to love them.
