No. No. No. No. You’re missing the point. Christian guys, if they follow this advice, will never get married. Would you flirt with your mom or sister? Take them on a date? Stare into their eyes? Give them a long tight hug? Kiss them? I don’t think so.
i get what it ‘s trying to say- but you should RESPECT any woman as you would your mom or sister. But I’m sorry, if a guy treats me like his sister all the time, I won’t fall in love with him and we won’t marry. Romance is not wrong. ROMANCE IS NOT WRONG. There is nothing sinful in romantic gestures, so long as they are honoring to your and the woman’s personal convictions.
Christian guys can be romantic and still honor God. They can say, “I like/love this girl and I want to show that to her” and still honor God. They can kiss or flirt or go on dates and still honor God. They can be passionate and loving and attractive and still honor God. They are not mutually exclusive.
Christian guys, if you’re not married, don’t do anything with your girl that you would be ashamed to tell your future wife. Don’t do anything with your girl that you would be ashamed to tell God.
But please, keep romance alive. Have fun. Show her you love her, and tell her why. Romance her.
