Go back to the gutter!
May God forgive you
As a young woman I used to think it was my Christian duty to kiss practically everyone on the cheek. At the Church I attended at the time, a young man came to visit family and was attending our Church. I gave him a kiss on the cheek like I did everyone and he looked rather startled.
I really thought I was doing God's will but after further examination I think differently. We are to stay away from the appearance of wrong and further, it is not good for a man to touch a woman (who is not his own wife). We are supposed to love our neighbour as ourself, and I realized that I would not be comfortable if a sister in Christ was giving my husband a kiss on the cheek (unless she was elderly).
As we live, we grow in the grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. As we bear fruit, He prunes us and perfects our obedience through our trials.
Proverbs 27:6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend, But the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
Kisses in marriage are honourable:
Song of Solomon 1:2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouthâ€” For your love is better than wine.
Kisses to a woman's own brother would not be looked down on, but if she gave a kiss to another man, it could have the appearance of wrong (as I have found out the hard way):
Song of Solomon 8:1 Oh, that you were like my brother, who nursed at my motherâ€™s breasts! If I should find you outside, I would kiss you; I would not be despised.
Kisses to Jesus feet most wonderful!:
Luke 7:37-39 And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Phariseeâ€™s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil. Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he spoke to himself, saying, â€śThis Man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what manner of woman this is who is touching Him, for she is a sinner.â€ť
It is of course symbolical if the person is not attractive-a hand shake will do.
And you all feel guilty,dont you,for not being pure in heart.
He sure does. And when he saves, he saves forever. He gives eternal life. Praise the Lord!
A Calvinist kissing an Armenian.
He sure does. He is the door. Enter the kingdom of God by Jesus Christ who died on a cross to save sinners.
He sure does. Call upon him tonight and be saved. Cry out, and he will hear your cry. Trust in him, and receive eternal life.
Redeem the time, for the days are evil. KISS THIS WORLD GOODBYE AND SERVE THE SAVIOUR. KISS HIM WITH THE KISS OF SUBMISSION AND SERVANTHOOD.
Let the unbelieving world know that there is a joyful sound.
He sure does, he saves all who call upon him.
Put on your helmet, have your loins girt about with truth, check the breastplate of righteousness, put on your feet the preparation of the gospel of peace, take the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked, and take up the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, and pray, pray, pray. Then go, go, go, and tell the people the glad tidings of salvation through Jesus Christ the one mediator between God and men.
He sure does, as I can surely testify.
No false cult, in their proselytising, can have the indwelling presence of the Son of God. It is only the Christian, filled with the Spirit, who can launch out into the world knowing that Jesus Christ and his holy angels are with them in truth. Not a concept, but a REAL, LIVING SAVIOUR. Imagine that, a little nobody who is nothing going out into the world with the Great Creator of the world on his side.
You're still on the wrong thread.... unless you're saying that the Holy Kiss has something to do with evangelism?
You're loosing it BIG TIME, buddy!!
Be also wise, O reader! The Son of God is KING over all. Bow the knee now, and admit him your rightful Ruler and Master and Teacher. His yoke is easy and his burden is light. Why carry your sins around everywhere? Loose them NOW, and LOOSE THEM upon Jesus. You will never be the same again, I assure you!
You're on the wrong thread
