Monday, October 06, BEING attracted to the opposite sex is a natural, healthy part of life, but when it comes to being an unmarried Christian who’s dating, the million dollar question is, ‘How far is too far? At one end of the scale is the radical fundamentalist Christian who will save all forms of affection — even holding hands — for after marriage; and at the other end is the more liberal Christian who will allow public expressions of affection, like kissing, as long as it comes with certain boundaries. For most Christians there is no sex before marriage, but the battle lines are drawn when it comes to what other forms of affection are allowed. The issue for many is whether it is possible to feel affection for someone; such affection that will make you contemplate marriage, yet you aren’t allowed to show that affection until the wedding day when you’re expected to transform from emotionless to affectionate. My husband didn’t once tell me that I was attractive. All he spoke about was the Bible during our courtship. He said God had led him to me, and after speaking to my pastor, I accepted his request to date. I wasn’t really attracted to him either but I knew he would be a good provider.

How the modern practice of “Christian dating” is cruel to men
The Song of Songs is a delightfully erotic, sensual dance between an unmarried man and an unmarried woman, who, given what we know about marriage at the time the Bible was written, are probably in their early teen years. Their desire for each other is mutual; their passion is mutual; their fulfillment is mutual. The emphasis is on passion and intimacy; there is no discussion of marriage or fertility.
