Mini-sex before Marriage

A4P Guest: “I’m 22 years old and my boyfriend is 27 years old. We’ve been dating now for a year. We both are born-again Christians and involved in our church youth ministry. We embrace the teaching of biblical abstinence and we also teach teenagers in our church about abstinence (refraining from sex before marriage). Even if at times it is tough to control ourselves, we’ve never had sex before and we don’t have a plan to do so before marriage. However we both came to the Appeal for Purity Facebook page recently and became convicted of the fact that we have been engaged in what you call “mini-sex” since day one. We always kiss and touch each other’s body whenever we see each other. We both talked about this thing and decided to stop it but the harder we try; the harder it gets for us to stop. What do you advise us to do to stop this mini-sex addiction which eventually leads us into a full blow sex?” Continue reading Mini-sex before Marriage

Dating and Marriage

A4P Guest: I’m a 36 year-old woman and I’ve been dating a man (38 years old) for a couple years now. We both are born again Christians. This year, I was expecting him to propose to me but he doesn’t even talk about marriage at all. I told him in several occasions how much I desire to get married. But he usually changes the subject and avoids it totally. What do you advise me to do?

A4P: I have few questions for you before I jump into answering your questions. So, what do you mean when you say you are dating a man? How do you define dating? How does dating look like in your relationship?

A4P Guest: I mean, just dating, nothing else. We see each other almost every day and we speak on the phone almost every night before we go to bed. Continue reading Dating and Marriage

The best and the most effective way – – –

As the Deer Pants

– – – to deal with the evil spirit when he strikes is by running to the True Shepherd of our soul, Jesus Christ; by seeking Him day and night as a deer pants, desires and seeks for the water! (Psalm 42:1; James 4:8)

After all, Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life! He is the Bread of Life! (John 14:6a, John 6:35 & 48) Without Him, there is no eternal life because He said, “No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6b ///

Change comes from – – –

“Though you grind a fool in a mortar,
grinding them like grain with a pestle,
you will not remove their folly from them.” Proverbs 27:22

Why not? Because change only comes from within!

But who is a fool?

The way of fools seems right to them,
    but the wise listen to advice.” Proverbs 12:15 ///

“Your love is like Science Fiction”

That is the 8th song from Jonathan Thulin’s new album called “Science Fiction.” The song just made my day!

Think about it! God’s love for us is actually out of this world. The life we have in Christ, because God so loved us, is out of this world.

That is what science fiction movies are all about: They tell a fiction story of a life that is outside this world!

But the life you and I live in Christ is not fiction at all. It is real! God’s love and our life in His love may look like science fiction but it is real!

Here is the chorus and the last stanza of Jonathan’s song: Continue reading “Your love is like Science Fiction”
