Christian dating and physical intimacy
Romantic intimacy is a warm closeness a man and woman share together on an emotional level as they love each other as husband and wife.This is clearly shown (as mentioned earlier) in Song of Songs (see 4:9-10).
It is like a rose bud that is opened in marriage and must be opened only a little before they are married, lest it develop their intimacy before the proper time. You are trying to have married intimacy and the benefits of God's wonderful plan of being married without actually being married, which God requires. If you are not mature enough to actually have gotten married, you're not mature enough to pretend your married.In Gen., God established this at the very beginning of the creation creation of woman.Adam and Eve were not to exist together without being married. a Christian marriage was also used as a picture of intimacy between Christ and His Church.It is by its very nature any physical contact, which stimulates a sexual response in either participant (even if nakedness is not uncovered).
