Christ like dating
So instead of us just hearing what we are not supposed to do, it would be nice to hear how we can fill that seeming void that exists when we do the right thing.
The Bible teaches us that God wants the best for us: "For I know the plans I have for you — declares the LORD.
It's a battle in which I already know right from wrong. And I know for myself, one of the justifications that runs through my mind is that this is one way to achieve the facade of physical intimacy without hurting the "sisters in Christ" immediately surrounding me.
This in no way justifies the act, and guilt always follows.
Although I am not trying to condone it in any way, I'm sure that many times pornography turns into the coping mechanism for the lack of physical intimacy in Christian, single men.
I already know and could teach the lesson about the harms of porn, so that's not the issue.
Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Through Jesus we may even call him 'Abba Father'.
