Question: What does the Bible say about a Christian lady sleeping in the same bed with her boyfriend, but they don’t have sex?
Answer: First, I would like to give you this Scripture. “Can a man [woman] take fire to his [her] bosom, and his [her] clothes not be burned? Can one walk on hot coals, and his [her] feet not be seared?” (Proverbs 6: 27-28)
Second, I would like to ask you, do you remember how the Bible talks about how Eve fell into sin? She got close enough to the forbidden tree to see what it looked like. Then Satan tempted her even more, he said, “you will not surely die.” “So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes…” Genesis 3:1-6.
