question for all you guys on the forum. How do we define hardlines for romantic intimacy outside of marriage. The most clear cut line is sexual relations. Beyond that how do we make distinction between what is and isn’t ok? Hand holding, hugging, kissing? How should we approach this for non married men and women? A common answer that I hear in evangelical circles is the sister rule that goes something like this: you shouldn’t do anything with a spiritual sister in Christ that you wouldn’t do with your biological sister. I.e you wouldn’t kiss your sister etc... I see far too many holes in this standard that can’t stand up to scrutiny. For instance I could easily say: “you would never ask your biological sister on a date so don’t do that to anyone else you adulterous pervert.” See how easy that standard breaks down? Anyway, what do y’all think?
