Cuddling As for cuddling, this can be harmless but the physical contact involved presents vulnerability and it’s so easy to take the next step.A hand brushed across an area easily stimulated can quickly result in a bursting passion that commands to be fed.
Kissing and cuddling while in a Christian dating relationship, Pastor Jim shares his thoughts about physical contact while dating. Aside: We have more than a few testimonials (including Carolyn and Marty – “Our first kiss was at the altar” – and Veronique and Thomas – “And, yes, that [wedding] day we exchanged our very first kiss on the lips”) of couples who waited until their wedding day to have their first kiss. Today I received an email asking whether or not kissing and cuddling are considered a sin. Give this advice piece a read and let us know your thoughts in the comments below!There is nothing sinful about the activity of kissing or cuddling, depending upon the definition one gives to these words.When is it okay and when is it something that becomes unhealthy?Define what it means The first place to begin in considering this type of interaction is with the couple involved.Each of them needs to define what it means to them.
A kiss may be seen as a caring gesture and not have a sexual connotation to one, while the other person may be stimulated into sexual thoughts and response just by thinking about it.
The topic is one that needs to be openly discussed and mutual acceptance of a definition that works for each of them.
I am reminded of my definition for sex: any activity that has as its intent or develops into a sexual stimulation is sex.
It does not require physical contact or even presence.
Men appear to be more easily stimulated than most women. There are many books and movies written about people who made a choice to follow pleasure in lieu of wisdom.
However, it appears that in today’s society that distinction is changing. If a kiss leads either party toward stimulation of a sexual nature, I would urge you to back away from that activity as singles. I invite you to read the story of David, Samson, and even Solomon in the Bible and see what price they paid for pursuit of pleasure.
