many thanks, - Dieter Hi Dieter It is great to see you being serious about keeping your relationship with your girlfiend pleasing to God.
As one poet has said,"dating is a dangerous game, temptation should be its name!
" Your question sounds very much like"how far can we go? Unfortunately, while we would like a definitive answer, the bible doesn’t lay down a set of hard and fast specific boundaries, but rather gives a set of ‘principles’ for relationships.
I have recently enetered a relationship with a christian girl, and both her and i have a growing concern about having a relationship that pleases GOd…
so we have been talking and not sure on what boundaries should be set in order for us to glorify God at all cost , we no the main one is no sex before marrige….
but no where in the bible i find is there a mention of relationships and boundaries cause ultimatley back then they didnt date but girls where promsied to men for marriage ...
so i was wondering what boundaries should we set in order for us to stray away from temtation, sin and that in our relationship so that it is pleaseing to God and also what can we do to strengthen our relationship in a Godly way were we are encouraging each other and building each other in our relationships with God ???
It includes sexual touching, lustful behaviour & even what we look at.
The Bible says, to avoid even a hint of sexual immorality. Our lives are to be free of even the slightest notion of the sexual (unless married and only then with our partner).
What this looks like in your situation specifically, might be different to someone elses.
But before we look at some of the principles, it is worth noting that God is not a kill-joy.
In fact, his desire is that we live life to the full!
