Purity in dating relationships One on one adult chats
In faith, you have become part of Christ's body, and it is Christ through the Church, who must give you permission to join His body to another body. The place where the Church confers that privilege on you is the wedding; weddings are specific acts that grant us permission to have sex with one person. The New Testament makes clear that sex beyond the boundaries of marriage — the boundaries of communally granted sanction of sex — is simply off limits.
To have sex outside those bounds is to commit an offense against the body.
That question requires a somewhat longer answer — indeed, I can only begin to scratch the surface here.
Chastity is important because it involves how we comport our bodies — and through faith, our bodies are no longer our own.
And why is chastity so "dear to heaven," so important to God's vision of discipleship and faithful Christian living?
It doesn’t say “lead us not into sin” but “lead us not into temptation.” See, we aren’t called merely to stay away from sin; we are called to avoid temptation. Imagine you are watching TV and a news alert flashes across the screen: “Rabid dogs loose in your neighborhood.
Do not go near them.” You warn your younger sister, who is home, about the dogs.
But holiness—or purity, as they are essentially the same—does not come naturally to our human hearts!
The hyper-sexualized culture in which we live is constantly sending us messages about dating.
