Christian dating past relationships
" 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.
With these ‘principles’ we must then work out how to apply them in our situation.
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.

He is the ultimate joy-giver, and his principles point us in the direction of complete joy and how to participate in a sexual relationship with someone that is exciting and fulfilling.One of the clearest principles on this issue of physical relationships is Ephesians 5:3 -"But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people." Sexual immorality is not just sexual intercourse outside of marriage.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!
