Is it wrong for a Christian to kiss in a serious relationship??

My Opinion

The answer to this question all depends on the purpose of the act and what is going on in the hearts of those participating in it. For example, it was clearly not wrong in the early New Testament church as believers used this gesture as a sign of greeting, friendship and mutual affection (Romans 16:16, 1Corinthians 16:20, 2Corinthians 13:12, 1Thessalonians 5:26, 1Peter 5:14).
In regard to kissing someone who is not a person’s mate, especially in the context of dating or pursuing an extra-marital affair, Jesus declared a basic principle on sexual morality when he stated during his famous Sermon on the Mount message, “You have heard that it was said to those in ancient times, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you, everyone who looks upon a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:27 – 28, HBFV throughout).
Based on Christ’s statement, when people kiss you can’t denyvthe fact of a lustful thoughts or chasing or (male or female) actively think about having sex with another person who they are not married to it is always sin, even when they do not actually commit the act. This principle is valid regardless of the age of those involved, as both young and old can lust (although the young normally do it more than those who are older).
Some may say it does not necessarily have to lead to sex, but as the above scripture says, if your mind has gone there it’s wrong. We should flee every appearance of evil.
I know this may be hard on us, but we can’t argue with the Bible we simply must try our best to obey and if we fall ,he would always pick us up
