Have I Comitted A Sin
I am a born-again christian of 25. I know a person, who is 58 years old whom I love much. I shared my love in the pysical form, by hugging and kissing her many a time. I didn't have any lust in my mind, when I did that. But now, I am feeling guilty of whether I have committed any sin.

Bany::A sin is a transgression against GOD.A kiss is just a kiss a mark of affection as we share Gods love with each other.The thought in your mind is If Of that pure nature -Then there is no sin .the sin is to LUST there was none by your description.Go in peace to love and serve the lord.

Condemnation is of the devil. Conviction is, of the person of the Holy Spirit. Ask God whether or not you have sinned. Are you feeling condemnation or conviction, which only believers has? Personally I see not much wrong with your kissing and hugging. Again, pray. Because what may be alright with you and God may not be with someone else and God. Have a good day.

I know I want be able to explain this in one post(85 words)But here goes: You are a young man 25 yrs old. You did nothing wrong.You like and respect someone older than you. Hugging and kissing is not forbidden to a Christian as long as it is done in the right manner. Even if you slipped up and went a little too far,unintentionally, confess it to God and move on. If you did not have Lust in your mind then what is the problem?

More to Bany: I would have loved to have been that 58 yr old. You seem to be a very nice and godly young man who loves the Lord. You did nothing wrong but expressed godly love to this lady. I am a Christian woman. Not as old as the lady you hugged but I am alive and loving it. Serving God does not mean we can no longer enjoy attention and affection. We just have to become more disciplined and discerning. Enjoy your walk with the Lord and throw that guilt away. God loves you so much.

Hugs and kisses are fine. You say you didn't harbor any lustful thoughts or feelings towards this woman. If that's the case and you didn't go any further with her, then I don't see how you comitted any sin. If you still feel guilt about it, then I would suggest going to God in prayer and maybe slack off a little on the"affection".

Face it, hugging and kissing in this context spells LUST and that is why your conscience is bothering you! It works!
Next time, don't repeat what bothered you this time. If you find yourself hugging and kissin her again you will know for sure that you LUST!

You say you love her, what sort of love?
Love which you "share physically" even by just hugging and kissing, usually implies more than just sisterly, brotherly, comradely or spiritual love.
What did she think your physical affection meant or promised? You may have comitted a sin by raising her expectations.

What you mentioned does not sound sinful. There is no lust, or inappropriate touching. Just curious, why not marry her?

As long as not only your thoughts where clean but theirs as well. Sometimes it can be the other person who is having lustful thoughts by this if not then should be ok. Just be careful as sometimes the desire can come be sure your somewhere where if you did get any desires you wont act on them.

What you did was normal-hugging and touching someone you love is normal. We should do more of it as a sincere act of friendship. The devil and the world has changed what is normal to something else ugly so that we have guilt instead of love and affection for our fellow man/woman. Like anything else, it can go further than we wish. Know where to draw the line. Too much food, too much drink, too much sleep, too much hugging can be harmful.
