Stay away from the edge

I was talking to one of my friends a couple days back, and we were discussing two friends of ours who are planning on getting married within this month. My friend, whom I was talking with, was led to the subject about underaged/unmarried sex. He said that he had talked with his girlfriend about it and decided not to do these things. So I was happy for him, as one should be, but he then said something like this to me.

"Gunn, you would be suprised at how hard it is to not have underaged/unmarried sex, when you are dating a girl."

Well, I can't argue that that is not true, because I have yet to have a girlfriend. I immediately thought of a direct solution to this. Don't Date. Or at least don't date until you are mature enough to control these temptations. If sex is a real temptation for a person you don't go anywhere near the idea until you can control it. I don't believe that this is a problem for everyone, because people have different temptations in different areas.

This is how Jim Wilson explains it. Christians don't like the idea of sin, but they like to get a good look at the sin. Two people date, both well knowing that they could go do the clearly obvious sin. Holding hands becomes kissing and then what does kissing become? I'll let you figure that out. And now I leave you with a bible verse that I did not have to open a bible for but was sitting on a diagram that Jim Wilson had made.

"And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil." -Matthew 6:13

I made out with helen for years while we dated and we never had sex. Its only difficult if you havent made up your mind if your gonna have sex or not. I decided to not have sex, but just make out as much as i liked. Worked like a charm.

Yeah, I didn't really think it would be hard for me just because i know what my limitations are
