I’d like to offer some practical advice to those who are single, based on Paul’s advice in 1 Corinthians 7.He was writing to a church in a pagan, sex-saturated society.
When Paul says, “It is good for a man not to touch a woman” (7:1), he is using the word “touch” as a figure of speech that refers to the physical relationship in marriage as representing marriage as a whole.
Many in that culture thought that satisfaction in life comes through gratifying sensual lusts.
There were problems with immorality even among the members of the Corinthian church.
These reflect recommendations from a five-year federally funded program evaluation by Auburn University.
The course is listed as an “evidence based” program with NREPP – highest rating for youth interventions.
