I am a Christian guy, and I have some questions about how far is too far when it comes to touching, making out, etc. I would feel better if other Christians answered this.
The bible talks about breasts and man's natural attraction to them. It never says that physical contact with a woman's chest is sex. But then again...does it?
So like if I touch my girlfriends boobs while making out or something, is this considered sexually immoral? When I look at a woman's breasts (not that I go looking for them, but you can't really avoid them either...lol) I don't think about having sex. And I wouldn't want to go to 3rd base if I touched my gf's breasts.
Just curious, not trying to sound pervy or anything

I try and think of God's reasoning behind His rules as I obey them so that it is easier to apply them to my life in general. Why would God forbid us from having premarital sex? There is in part the medically unsafe aspects to think of - it is an easy way of transmitting disease. Then there is the concept of it destroying the family unit (especially back when the bible was written - there was no such thing as protection from STDs or birth control or emergency contraceptives so often times sex lead to children... being a bastard back then wasn't that great... not that it is much better now). But perhaps the more important reason I think for most of God's rules is simply that breaking them would take us further from Him and HIs Love. If you feel that doing this would take you further from Him or if you feel ashamed in doing it, I would say these are relatively good indicators that you should not be doing something. Have you tried talking to a pastor about this? I know it seems awkward, but if you have a man in the church who you can trust to share this with, I would.
