A Kiss Too Long

I have been to many relationship seminars where the most debated question is :Is Kissing a Sin? The constant recurrence of this question vividly shows that even Christians are not ready or willing to call a spade a spade. 1 Corinthians 16:20 ” All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss” is one portion of the Bible that many Christians use to justify their lust. But who are we kidding? We all know that the type of kiss Apostle Paul referred to is not the type we see in the movies.
Let us take the case of Demilade ( not real name) and his fiancée as an instance. Demilade is not the type of guy you need to preach to about the dangers of sexual sin or premarital sex because he is a strong advocate against premarital sex in his own right. His fiancée, Esther is also a firebrand. They both knew that as far as their relationship was concerned, sex is a No-Go Area. But to Demilade, a kiss is just fine; “it’s just a way to express my love afterall” he always justified himself anytime he attempted to kiss Esther who always declined.
For her, kissing is a sin and a very important prelude to sex. However, with constant and subtle pressure, she gave in. And so, like disciplined kissers,(lol) they always ensured it was not more than a kiss. So, they always stopped just before the hormone rush took the best of them. What Demilade did not know is that the kiss had opened the gates of lust to Esther’s heart. Firebrand Esther saw herself unbelievably resorting to masturbation.
“I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and by the hinds of the field, that ye stir not up, nor awake my love, till he please.”
Song of Solomon 2:7(KJV)
They had awakened love before its time and so they have to bear the consequences. I know the media makes kissing seem like the norm, infact, it is a date ritual. But you have to remember that though you are in the world, you are not of this world.
So, let’s show them how it is done before you find yourself doing things that you never envisaged.
Have a great week ahead!
