Im a christian dating a mormon
Necking, another word that confuses some youth, refers to heavy kissing, passionate kissing, or "making out." Necking often leads to petting. Kimball on the topic, taken from The Teachings of Spencer W. Necking is the younger member of this unholy family.
Its bigger sister is called "petting." When the intimacies have reached this stage, they are surely the sins condemned by the Savior.
I read about a young man who bragged that he had kissed more girls in one day than anyone else in his stake. This boy really cares for me." Did they know he was just going for a record?
He felt he had set a "record." To him, kissing was some kind of contest! Did they realize that each girl he kissed was only a notch on the way to his "goal"? Kimball: Kissing has been prostituted and has degenerated to develop and express lust instead of affection, honor, and admiration. What do kisses mean when given out like pretzels, and robbed of sacredness?
And French kissing is out--it's purpose is to be passionate and suggestive, not to express pure affection (plus, the stuff with the tongues just seems tacky, in my opinion).
Great advice for youth comes from the popular youth speaker, John Bytheway, in his book What I Wish I'd Known in High School, pp. My seminary teacher tried to explain that to a bunch of us sixteen-year-olds one day. "Guys and girls are different, and sometimes expressions of affection mean different things to different people. this means he likes me; he cares for me, oh, how sweet.'" ...
In short: Save your kisses; you may need them one day. Well, you can make it happen just the way you want if you plan it now! In describing moral transgressions, the words that adults use sometimes confuse youth.
When I was 16, I remember a Church leader talking to a number of the young men and telling us not to neck or pet when we went on dates.
Then I wondered if that included hand holding or putting my arm around a girl.
56-59, where he writes about the topic "What Do Kisses Mean? Maybe that's like saying, "I really like you." What if you kiss your date? Generally speaking, when a girl is being kissed, she may be thinking, 'Oh . "When a boy is kissing a girl, he may be thinking, 'Wow, this feels good. Can you see how easily a miscommunication or a misunderstanding can happen?
": All of us can communicate loud and clear without using words. I'd like to do this again very soon.'" You may laugh at first, but think about that for a minute. We communicate loud and clear with our actions, and if we're not careful, we could be telling lies! Ashton: You mean, you can be dishonest by kissing someone? If putting your arm around someone means "I like you," and holding hands means "I really like you," than maybe kisses mean "I love you." What do you think?
As a life-long Mormon, I’m asked with frequency what things I “can and can’t do.” That’s always been a little funny of a question to me because I, just like you, can do whatever I want.
The reason that I CHOOSE to live a certain way as a devout Mormon is not because I’m afraid of punishment or to try and make myself look better than anyone else.
Just the fact that you were searching for this shows to me that you care about respecting the religion of others. If you’d like to learn a bit more about why I believe in Christ and am a Mormon, read this page.
