If a fire starts in our basement, do we run away for our life or do we chill around?
No brainer! We sure run away for our life.
Let’s say, we couldn’t run away and we called 911. From the following two possible questions, which one are we most likely going to ask the 911 operator who is going to answer our call:
“What should I do to get closer to the fire?” Or,
“What should I do to stay away from the fire?”
Again, no brainer! We want to know how far we need to stay away from the fire because we know that getting closer to the fire may cost us our life and we don’t play with our life!
In the same way, we know for sure sex outside marriage is like a wildfire which has a power to taint and “tar”our beautiful life with sorrow, grief, despair, pain, hurt, shame and even death. And we also know that kissing is nothing but a quick road to sex. Then how do we ask, “Is kissing a sin before marriage” kind of question?
I think; there is only one possible answer for that: We don’t know or even worse, we simply don’t believe what the Bible says about sex outside marriage and the consequences of it (Matthew 5:27-28; 1 Corinthians 6, 7; 1 Thessalonians 4; 2 Peter 2; Proverbs 5, 6, 7 & 9 and more).
If we believe what the Word of God says, our question would have been something like:
“How far away can I stay from sex and anything that may lead me to sex?”
Think about it! After all, we lead our life by what we believe, not by what we know. ///
