“How far is too far before marriage?” The fact that we keep asking this question suggests that we agree we need to draw some lines in our relationships. If you are pursuing marriage relationship, you are going to experience temptation — a lot of I must say.
I have recently been studying about building godly relationships. From scriptures, a lot could be deduced. Even traditionally, some cultures seem to have godly ideologies as regards godly dating. But to be sincere, a lot of concepts about godly dating are out of sentiments and personal ideologies – although motivated from scripture too.
Although I couldn’t find the word “Dating” or “Courtship” in the Bible, the definition we have for such terms could be infered from scripture. Hence, it worthy of being discussed.
There is a reason the Bible doesn’t have a book devoted to how to choose a spouse. It was not an oversight on the part of the God of all history, as if he couldn’t see into the 21st century.
While spontaneous plunges into intimacy look great as it feels in the moment, they breed shame, regret, and distrust in the relationship.
You asked quite a reasonable question. But just to point out the word “can“. That means there is a possibility. Praying together over the phone or physically, is quite a good thing to do. It’s a spiritual exercise which can only happen while we still exist in our body. It even creates a godly mindset. But too much of it might make you feel too bonded to the *not-yet-spouse* and thus graduate to *unnecessary ecstasy*.
Both factors I mentioned are with the mindset of not getting *emotionally heightened* which then clouds our rational judgement of circumstances surrounding the relationship.
Talking on phone and praying together is good but better when done at *intervals* than for long hours at a go. Night calls really used to be popular back than😀.
Your emotions must be in control by you.
Have you had this experience where you talk with a friend for a long time and totally realize you are just drunk in the conversation that you even start discussing unnecessary stuffs and say things you wouldn’t normal say?
Boundaries protect, and boundaries provide the trenches of trust-building
