Abstinence and dating

Chastity believes it is most loving to not tempt your partner.

Foreplay and “making out” is what occurs as one leads up to intercourse. (If your date loved chocolate, would you really be so cruel as to drive her to Baskin Robbins, buy her chocolate ice cream, then dangle a spoonful in front of her mouth, but never let her take a bite?

Chastity includes God’s plan for our heart, mind, emotions, and physical well-being.

God desires that we become more loving, and chastity is the best route to become a truly great lover.

A somewhat similar situation existed in Japan, where the Shinto tradition also opposed celibacy. Richard Sipe, while focusing on the topic of celibacy in Catholicism, states that "the most commonly assumed definition of celibate is simply an unmarried or single person, and celibacy is perceived as synonymous with sexual abstinence or restraint." Elizabeth Abbott commented on the terminology in her A History of Celibacy (2001): "I also drafted a definition that discarded the rigidly pedantic and unhelpful distinctions between celibacy, chastity and virginity".

God also wants to keep all of His children close to His heart and His love.

Impurities, of any kind, will lead or distract Christians from Christ and their faith.

Every man, woman, and child in the world can be living chastity—priests, religious brothers and sisters, single people, married couples, and teenagers. It means that you understand the power of sex enough to keep it in marriage.

In our society, many young people think they’re just fine, as long as they don’t go “all the way.” Abstinence, from many sources, says, “don’t do it”, and there’s often not clarification as to what “it” is, and how you avoid “it”, especially while dating.
