HELP: Is Having A Boyfriend Or Girlfriend A Sin? by asco15(m): 2:11pm On Jul 19, 2015
Hello NL, I was chatting with a girl, and she told me that for her age, having a boyfriend is not a sin even though she is only a student and she is not ready for marriage. She said that one has to practice before getting married.
well, I think many Christian youths are also confused on this issue.
but as a genuine born again Christian, is it right to have a boyfriend or girlfriend as a youth?
only believers should reply and if possible back it up with Bible references.
thanks.

What you should be asking is

... is it right in African culture to keep girlfriends/boyfriends?

It's time africans stopped looking to whites and Brownies(from the middle-east) for a way of life

common sense would tell us that The Bible can never talk against you having friends but against using the friendship to commit sin

for me, boyfriend and girlfriend thing is not scriptural and it's an occasion of sin. the person I was chatting with also agreed that it always led to lust and even fornication.
As a born again Christian, you can only go into a Christian courtship when you are settled and ready for marriage. besides you don't just meet a girl and begin to say you love her, rather you ask God for direction. saint Paul encouraged us to either be single or married. Joseph and Mary were not doing boyfriend and girlfriend thing, they were engaged.

It all depends on what you mean by the word "friend".

Jesus, Mary and Martha were friends. John 11:5

The shulamite and the shepherd boy were good friends before they married. Ca 1:9

There is nothing wrong in having a girlfriend and a boyfriend, but the two should be free from sexual immorality. 1cor 6:9, 10. Sex is reserved for married people.

marriage is a serious stuff and not what one can just enter anyhow.
as a child of God, u can't marry someone without the consent of God, but we all know that those who are into boyfriend and girlfriend relationship goes into it carnally (I.e without asking God) and how do you want to marry a person without seeking God. remember that your gf or bf could be an agent sent to led you to hell. so I don't see any excuse why you should go into any worldly relationship with the hope of getting married to that person.
So, for those Keeping bf, gf better quit and wait for your God given fiancée to start a healthy xtian courtship that your parent, pastor and all will be aware of.

Do you have feelings for your partner?
Does he or she touch or caress you?
If yes. then you are lusting and that's a sin.
Eph.4:27 neither give place to the devil.
So, it's not too late, quit ant wait on the Lord.

Did the Lord revealed her to you that she will be your wife? or you just woo her because you liked her.
People can change and that is why we must seek God before going into marriage. Besides is your pastor, both parents aware of your relationship? Nevertheless, courtship is not supposed to be more than two years.
