Kissing and Romancing: Part of Fornication?

l want to know if kissing and romancing are part of fornication.

Already, l know that they led to fornication.

But assuming after kissing and romancing it didn't end in fornication [i.e. intercourse or the main thing]?

Sexual desire is a normal part of life. That is how God has created both men and women. The problem is not about having the desire, but about using it properly. It gets easily out of control and things start to happen. So, you need to be wise there. Surely, you should make sure you feel good and attracted by your boyfriend or your girlfriend. If that feeling of sexual attractiveness is not there, something is wrong. Do not be too spiritual. It would be too late to change things after you get married. If there is no attraction before the marriage, most likely it won’t appear after. So, holding hands or being gentle to each other and feeling excited is Ok. However, keep it down and try to shift your attention to getting to know each other. Sexual excitement passes away after a while and you get the other person next to you with their character, ideas, faults and strong sides. Dating is the time to learn all that so you would really make a smart choice and won’t regret it afterwards.

It is immorality. It is a sin and if you have done it ask God for forgiveness and cleasing and do not repeat it. Moreso, it is advisable for a Xtian courtship to be as short as possible (3 - 12 months)max. is advised so that you will not have developed unnecessary familiarity and lost sight of sin. You still run on blood and in flesh - no super human to fornication, Wisdom is required.

@ topic

if you're a Christian sincerely wanting to know the answer to this question, then yes.

And if by romancing you mean heavy petting. Dont know about kissing though especially if you're engaged.

The problem with this kind of threads is that most "christians" don't even know what the bible refers to as fornication which in actual fact has nothing to do with sex outside marriage. The term fornication in the english language itself is a mis-translation an that is why you would find that term being used in only the King James Version other versions use the term sexual immorality which is more apt cos the bible is talking about immoral sexual practises such as Inbreeding, sodomy haroltry and the likes and not pre -marital sex. Any one in doubt should get a bible concordance[dictionary] and verify the hebrew/ greek meanings of the word mis-translated to mean fornication which includes pre-marital sex.

Jesus said consenting to a desire mentally i.e deriving pleasure from mental projection makes one guilty of sin of fornication/adultery and here we sre rationalising that kissing and romancing is NOT sin. For the fact we cant does not mean that God can make us do it as well. HAVE YOU SINCEREY ASKED FOR GRACE TO OBEY?

For those of us who see it as a sin, how many of us have really/sincerely kept away from it.

how many guy will accept if his babe tells him that "her body is the temple of God"

No man will ever accept dating a lady without kissing,hugging or romancing her. even sex her.

Kissing/Romancing is part of fornication and fornication is a sin.

keep off.

Jesus is coming soon

Hey quys,

No matter how you chose to see it,fornication remains fornication and whoever wants to live do not have to play with a hand grenade pretending that it is pineapple.When it goes kaaaabbbooommmm you will not live to recognise that you have been daring the tiger.What am I saying?

Kissing and Romancing is not just of;but same as sexual intercourse

Be careful when you kiss so that it doesn't lead you into sin.Men get so easily turned on so be careful ladies before you find yourself doing something you did not plan for.

QED with no proof eh? your teachers must be proud of such a 'scholar'

temptation leads to sin so to be tempted is also a sin right?

I repeat the motive behind an action is the root to what is a sin

Proverbs 16:2 People may be pure in their own eyes, but the Lord examines their motives.

y'all should keep your opinions, If in my heart there is no intention to use my g/friend for sex and we 'kiss' and' 'romance' as an expression of affection,

my motive is clean and it is NOT a sin

SOME THINGS ARE SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED! Some of u folks ve not really had an encounter, that is why u talk like this.

I used to be a KINGPIN in dating women and all those stuffs, until i met JESUS. Since then it has been a different ball game.

" THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IS FOOLISHNESS UNTO THEM" R u trying to make this word come to pass or what? Nairalanders dont think i am a "BUSH BOY", I was bred in Lagos, never went to a PUBLIC SCHOOL and a top scholar from UNIVERSITY OF ILORIN. This is just to drive home the fact that the topic up fro discussion is a sin!

QED.

I couldn't help it but had to post on this one, wtf

who gives a flying fig what whether kissing or 'romancing' are part of fornication !??

what age are you freaks living in?

This is what is holding Nigeria down, having churches on every street in Lagos cos people's conscience are held to ransom by so called 'Men of God'

Guys listen up, you can't continue all this self righteous bull s--t, its unproductive and intellectually retrogressive.

lets be more creative as a people, identify loop holes and proofer solutions.

improve systems, build yourselves

I believe in God and follow a single rule - DO TO OTHER AS YOU HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU

if so called self conscious 'religious people' lived by that rule, Nigeria would be a much better place to live in.

I don't know but we need a revolutionary mindset focused on improving ourselves and well being.

my thoughts, only my thoughts.

People fail to realise that oftentimes (if not everytime) the sin precedes the act.

The sin is in the heart.This is a necessary precursor to the fusion of the sexual organs (the very act).

Mat 5:28 But I say to you that whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Fornication refers disapprovingly to any "sexual activity" outside of the confines of marriage, obviously including pre-marital sex. Sometimes adultery is considered a type of fornication.

The actof kissing and Romancing depends on the state of mind and agreement between both lover birds.

I Believe from My own view that what i term Sin is Sin if i do it against our will. if i agreewith my love bird that to greaase our relationship we should add kissing then it is no sin if we both agree and keep to that standard but on the contrary if we do not agree to doing it and i impose it on her then it is Selfishness wish is Sin So kissing and Romancing without fornication is dependant on the level of agreement the love birds stand to

read matthew 5:28, but i say to you,that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in her heart.The bible standard remains whether we like it or not.lf lustful looking is a sin,then kissing and romancing are sin.

@brymore,

When u want to quote the Bible, Quote the book, chapter and verse, it makes it easier for pple to believe, u cant jus say that the Bible says intention is as good fornication.

i havent checked, but i'm not sure the Bible says it out in black and white,

i'll let u do the work of searching and thus proving ur point, no harm intended,

I maintain, if the intention is NOT to have sexual intercourse (i.e. a predetermined decision not to have sex) and it is done in an honorable way to express

your affection for another person (not randomly or just because you lust for it), kissing and 'romancing' (whatever that means) is NOT fornication.

the root motive is the key here, if you do NOT intend to have sex and you keep to your predetermined limits, you have not fornicated.

If we will follow what the Bible says, what makes anything sin is the intention or motivation for such action. What this invariably means is that you can fornicate without kissing, necking, rimming, smooching or romancing. It might also probably mean that you can kiss without fornicating (depending on the motive behind the kissing). Imagine a scenario where this person(the opposite sex) has just been rescued from drowning and you are to resuscitate the person by the "mouth to mouth thing", would you call that fornication (This is just an attempt at looking at times when kissing might not have bad intentions and as such do not qualify as sin).

My summation; anytime you look (look in this context can be through mental images, viewing pictures, movies or the person proper) at the same or opposite sex with the aim of having some form of sexual gratification, you have fornicated.

If you can carry out the kissing and romancing action without thinking of having sex, then you have not fornicated. Note that fornication has to do with penetration. If there is no penetration, there is no fornication.
