Those who recklessly give themselves to a love life of dating without really dating, of romantic rendezvouses without Christ and commitment, are settling. With this “more,” we can say to the watching world, Don’t settle for artificial and thin loyalty, affection, security, and sexual experimentation when God intends and promises so much more through a Christian union.

It’s not nearly a comprehensive or exhaustive list.

They’re simply lessons I’ve learned and hope can be a blessing for you, your boyfriend or girlfriend, and your future spouse.He said he knows firsthand the difficulties that come along with remaining celibate since he has struggled with it following years of being sexually active and addicted to pornography.
