Respectful kissing is different from lustful kissing & is a prelude to a diffferet route in a relationship & is an enquiry to ascertain if the recepient is a willing participant in an unmeaningful encounter.THIS IS WRONG.

See how many churches promote fellowship by having people shake hands, or even hug.
Then see how many churches promote fellowship by the use of the "Holy Kiss". I haven't yet seen any.
It's like this culture is SO paranoid about kissing that they're not even comfortable with doing it in places where the Bible says you should do it.

LILY:: Kissing is not a sin but the intention behind the Kiss is born in the mind known to God.The wrong or right is known to HIM and you alone.I agree a kiss on the lips is an unhealthy practice, for clinical reasons.REMEMBER DESIRE is born in the mind not the action.That is why God says If you lust in your mind, or with your eyes you are guilty of Adultery.

I have often wondered about this. Mabe just shake his hand. Kiss on the Wedding Day, after you are married. Other opinions are WELCOME.

All of us have our weaknesses. Sometimes the heart can deceive us and Satan desires to set a trap so that he will have the opportunity to bind us to sin. As far as kissing, it could led to fornication. The flesh is very weak. Some people may have kissed and still not be tempted. The best way to handle this issue is to pray everyday and ask God for his guidance.Ask God to spare you and give you his wisdom for you personally. That is what we should be doing, trusting God in all things, small and great.

Do your self a big favour and get a copy of "Boy Meets Girl" by Josh Harris. It is very helpful in answering such questions.

Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: IT IS GOOD for a man not to touch a woman.
Follow God in all things and watch his blessings go before you.

If it is wrong for her to kiss someone in the relationship,the Lord will convict her and show her that.I kiss my boyfriend in our relationship.And we have been together almost 3 years now.Kissing is not in the caterory of sex.

Lily,you are wrong.My mom is a christian and goes by the Bible.And she says kissing is ok.Just as long as you don't let it go further than kissing.Some people feel differently about it,and the reason is that God convicts the person of it.If the Lord convicts you on that then you don't do it.But just because He may tell you not to do it,doesn't mean everyone else has to be like you or anyone else that believes that.The Lord convicts us all with different things,and not everyone is the same.

A lot of you may be asking "Why is kissing wrong?" and "It will just remain at the level of kissing" but God really just wants to protect you. He is preventing you from being sick. There are lots of illnesses in this world that can last a lifetime and they can be acquired through a simple kiss. So this is why kissing goes under the same category as sex.

I have a friend getting married in a few weeks. The original date was October but they have moved it up to June because she is 5 months pregnant. I wonder what she would say about the dangers of "kissing". Leon has given good advice here.

Lil_d: In short, inappropriate kissing, touching, etc. , isn't okay. These things are torches that ignite lustful passions that'll certainly burst into flames & consume you. Don't fool yourself. Your contemplated (?) activity will definitely lead to premarital sex. Don't play with fire!
God has a higher purpose for your life. Trust & ask him to deliever you from sexual temptation.
By the way, are you male or female?
---Leon on 6/14/06|
I mean kissing, touching, ect.
---Lil_D on 6/13/06|
I look at the CONTEXT of a verse, and give scripture references.
Pharisee accuses me of "resisting wisdom."
Does this make sense?
---Jack on 6/13/06|
Lil_D: What do you mean, "physical relationship"? That covers a lot of territory. Is it something other than holding hands or kissing (just a yes or no please)?
---Leon on 6/13/06|
Oh Jack why must you resist wisdom.
I don't care about the context of 1st Corinthians 7, in fact Jack the context of marriage is more akin to the question then a holy kiss ever will be, this question on here isn't about a Holy kiss, it's about senual passionate kissing, which I can remember in my days of youth led to things that should naver have happened.
SHAME ON YOU JACK
---PHARISEE on 6/13/06|
The original context of 1 Cor 7:1 is about remaining UNmarried--as a matter of counsel, not command. Remember, St. Paul was himself unmarried.
The following verses enjoin the use of the Holy Kiss as greeting among Christians.
1 Corinthians 16:20
1 Corinthians 16:19-21
2 Corinthians 13:12.
2 Corinthians 13:11-13
1 Thessalonians 5:26
