1. Do you believe in sex before marriage? No. The Bible clearly teaches no sex before marriage. Exodus 20:14 states "Do not commit adultery." 1 Corinthians 6:18 states: "Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. [More]. Modern research tells us the sex before marriage does more damage that good. Sex before marriage also increases the change of having sexually transmitted diseases.

 

2. Is masturbation wrong? Yes it is wrong. I do not recommend masturbation for singles at any age. 1 Corinthians 6:18 reminds us to flee all sexual immorality. Is masturbation all that bad? Well, research tells us that many single Christian teenagers and young adults are feeding the sexual appetites through masturbation, thereby increasing their risk of sexual dysfunctions during marriage. Masturbation is dangerous because it is addictive. No form of sexual addiction is healthy. God never intended for the sex act to be a solitary experience served through masturbation. God designed sexual intercourse to be shared between a husband and wife as the highest expression of intimacy. Should Christian single men and women use masturbation as a means of releasing sexual tension to avoid fornication? Certainly not. With the addictive element and lust thoughts and transitory nature, I cannot recommend masturbating as a method for an occasional release of sexual tension. [More] Dr. Kraft continues in his book Whole, Holy and Sexuality : "Masturbation is particularly seductive because it is an easy and accessible way to reduce tension and to explore genital feelings and fantasies without interpersonal vulnerability, responsibility, and accountability. It seems we have a license to masturbate almost whenever we feel like it. We need not worry about other people or social consequences; it can be kept to oneself. Part of masturbationís lure is the safe secrecy of fantasy; one does not have to risk rejection, embarrassment or failure. . . . Instead of engaging in mature relationships, the individual can create a world of make-believe, where anything is possible and there are not limits . . . Masturbation can numb the discomfort of emptiness and incompleteness and promises some semblance of being one with self and other. But these rewards are short lived. Masturbation involves a yearning for intimacy and completeness."

 

3. Is it wrong to have a boyfriend/girlfriend? No. It is not wrong, as long as he or she is just a friend. However, it "boyfriend" means that it is a permanent-like, intense, love relationship, where go cannot sleep at nights unless you speak to each other and the relationship prevents the development of other friendship, then it is wrong. That kind of relationship is only for adults.

 

4. How old you have to be to have a girlfriend or boyfriend? The truth is you can have a "friend" at any age. However, the best time for a serious relationship is after the teen years and after high school. One should be at least 21.

 

5.  If Jesus knew that we would sin, why did he create us? This and other questions like that have been asked for hundreds of years. I would like to ask Jesus this question. However, it was because of love, total love, that we were created. Remember, God did not mess up. We did.
