Can I Live With My Boyfriend

I'm spending the summer with my boyfriend and everyother weekend during school year because we live apart and I have no other way to see him as often unless I stay with him. But I don't want to go to hell. Is it sinning to live with him but not fall into temptation?

Moderator - Yes, because it is the appearance of evil and in addition we both know it's not possible to not fall into temptation.

Lilli::you may have will power but temptation is Satans tool & he knows how to play the game.Keep rubbing the match & it will ignite eventually, however why put & make yourself available to temptation.

Robyn: I so agree with you, Amen and amen to that sister.
---Marcia on 7/13/07

Well Miss Lilli: Try to putting fire in your bosom and see if you don't get burned. Temptation can be overcome with God's help but never underestimate the power of satan,either. Sexual temptaion is very very strong and not easily overcome. One of the stongest on earth. If I don't want to be tempted. I don't get close to it, don't look at it. Heaven forbid if I touch it. You have to have nerves of steel, to overcome that.Oh, by the way. I am not a teen ager or very young.

Kris - In all reality you are doing wrong by putting yourself straight into the arms of temptation. If nothing has happened yet, it surely will simply because you are both human with wants and desires. Only married people should be together. You need to stop this before it goes any further and ask the Lord Jesus to forgive you and then turn away from this altogether.

If this relationship was to fail he would just be messing up some unhappy Qualified Husbands potential, Wife, so don't go there!

I'm honestly extremely surprised int he lack of faith the people here are showing for will power. People are capable of resisting temptation; it's incredibly difficult, but it has been done.
---Lilli on 9/6/06

Your farrrrrrrrrr tooooooooo younnnnng too begin in this Dangerous Arena. Which is only Suitable for married people. Remember your Focus which is NOT TO SIN. Get yourself focused on what you want out of life and do not put yourself in a place of compromise which could be FATAL, get your exams completed, go on to further education, get educated and be a Qualified proffessional Woman. Then you can start seriously looking for a suitably Qualified Husband you can live with for Life( IN CHRIST)

It may be popular to have a boyfriend, but it is not popular in the sight of God, because you are spritually too young to fully understand the dangers of getting too close when the green light is on and there are no bounderies( MOM and DAD) more importantly no God which is what would happen if you follow the evil idea of satan to actually start living together.

I had to teach them that the only way they would achieve their goal was total abstinance, they still had friends that were girls but they did not get involved further than the school gate. sure their friends sisters came round but they also left with their brothers. So what am I saying to you?
---Carla5754 on 9/6/06

They now can both cook, clean, look after children, themselves and even our family unaided slightly lol but both are one year away from University, both can't thank me enough as they watched their school friends live with girlfriends and are now absent fathers, even their close friends have followed their footsteps and are on their way to uni.
---Carla5754 on 9/6/06

You mention school, while others may disagree I have to give my input. I did not allow any of my children the opportunity to have girlfriends whilst they were at school. why because they have not a single thing to offer anyone at that stage in their lives, and if they want to make an impression on anyone go get a degree, a decent job, car and if their lucky a house then they are at libertiy to bring home their potential WIFE.
---Carla5754 on 9/6/06

It's nearly impossible to not be tempted in a situation like this, Kris, and I would strongly urge against it. By the fact that you posted this question, I'm inclined to think that you already have reservations about doing it. We make our greatest mistakes in life when we go against our own beliefs and yield to outside pressures and our own desires despite the danger signs.
---AlwaysOn on 9/5/06

It is a very very dangerous thing for a Christian to do, it is like walking into sin when you should flee from it.
---adetunji on 9/5/06


Chime back in! We are all concerned about you and want to know what you have decided or what you are thinking.
---Crystal on 8/2/06

You are VERY naive to put yourself in this situation and think you will not be tempted. We are all fleshly in our desires, and will (undoubtedly) give into that temptation especially if it is in front of us continually. I believe that is why we are instructed in the Word of God to FLEE! That means RUN, run FAST, get out of there as quickly as you can and DON'T put yourself in that situation again. You have already gotten good advice here, and I am just reinforcing it.
---Crystal on 8/1/06

To kris; young lady Helen has given you good advice.

People will assume that you have slept together whether you have or not (that's what human being do I'm afraid) so don't give them any reason to even suspect such a thing.
---M.P. on 8/1/06

**we both know it's not possible to not fall into temptation.**

We all fall into temptation every day. That's not the trouble. It's part of the human condition.

But there's a difference between falling into temptation and falling into sin.

You may have the best intentions in the world, but it's a situation asking for trouble.

Brinksmanship spirituality is not a good idea.
---Jack on 8/1/06

Living with your boy frinend or not living with him will not send you to hell. Not knowing Jesus Christ will send you to hell. If you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, then you would not want to put yourself in a bad situation. The bible says to avoid all appearance of evil. To live with your boyfriend gives appearance you are sleeping together.
