    Wow, what a way to think about lust - that everything else we are to resist, but lust we are to flee from! Great way of putting it! Y'all have given this hugger a lot to think about 🤔

      Jeremiah Tassinari your quotations of the Bible mean literally nothing to atheists/agnostics. That would be like a Muslim using quotes from the Quran to prove that Allah is real to you, a Christian. There are over 4,000 religions, just by sheer statistics, you are most likely wrong. In fact, it is more likely that there is no “correct” religion at all.

      +Jeremiah Tassinari I can't believe that because I don't have any proof. Just like I can't believe that pigs can fly or that drinking bleach will cure cancer.
      Until I see proof I can't belive.

      I kinda think this is a little to much . It's ok to hug and kiss God never said anything like that. We gotta b realistic and realize that your gonna hug and your gonna kiss and that's okay

        You're completely right!! It's especially good for someone who hasn't been in a relationship so they have clear boundaries and a clear understanding beforehand. Also, Morgan, I'm like you lol!! Physical touch is one of my love languages so, I love hugs. I have to keep myself in check especially because I want to keep everything holy. It IS more than just hugging when you're thinking about God's plan and desire.

          If that's your personal conviction, absolutely, yes! But for most people, there is nothing wrong with hugging. The question shouldn't be "how far is too far" but "how holy can we be?".

              If you make a hug sexual, you have something very wrong with your brain. Seriously. I'm finding that Christians are the most hypersexual people in the world. Minds are always in the gutter. So every time you hug, kiss, or show any affection at all to your spouse, it always leads to sexual thoughts? That's a disorder. I'm sorry to inform you. I would feel so objectified in a relationship like this. Cripes!

                There are people who think that by getting exposed to more germs, they are strengthening their immune system. But you only need antibodies to fight a given infection if you come across that germ. If you never get sick from the germ because you never infect yourself with it, you've avoided the thing you didn't want-- sickness. Physical affection is a little bit similar. If you avoid things that go past your threshold, you won't need to actively fight every minute for purity; you can focus on bigger and better things. But if you hug someone and find that it's too much, you can't really go back. You have reduced ability to fight and now you can't focus on getting to know the person you love.

                      i think it depends on the person. If you know you struggle with lust, just don't do it. A glass of wine for someone who doesn't struggle with it is nothing but for an alcoholic, it can take them to a whole other place they may not be able to control. Everyone's struggle is different and we have to respect that.

                          I have a question, so i’m in highschool and wanted to know was it hard establishing those boundaries? and was it easy for you to know who was meant for you and who wasn’t based on those boundaries you placed and who followed them?

                            to the non-believers out there- there are other religions where they wait to do almost anything until marriage (orthodox jews, muslims) and they don’t get hated on? just saying.

                            to my fellow believers-
                            they’re not saying these are strict rules to follow and every Christian obviously has different convictions when it comes to dating before marriage. they are just trying to live a life that follows Christ and allows no room for the devil to creep in. pray about it and ask the Holy Spirit to give you His holy understanding. if it’s not for you, don’t do it but there’s nothing unbiblical about what they are saying.
                            i actually respect them a lot for this.

                                I actually agree 100% with you guys! I naturally side hug because I always felt disrespectful towards myself or even outside of relations with others. You are feeling the other person's body to body& that's not right you don't have to be that close. It does help from being tempted.

                                    I don’t know about anyone else, but I don’t really get turned on by hugging. These people are a little strange.

                                          Paul and Morgan I don’t feel that way, at least not towards myself since I’m an atheist. You two are Christian and you seem miserable.

                                          I am wondering, Paul and Morgan, are you against Ballroom (standard) dancing in the same way you are against hugging?

                                                    Because indoctrination and shaming people for natural feelings is something you should do.

                                                      Hey guys! I just wanted to encourage you! I found this really helpful cause I always want to do better for God and as long as we are acting according to what the Bibles says we can never do too much! I never thought of hugs like that and I think your right! Sure it’s just a hug but it’s still really close to someone and if you start with that on the first date well it’s gonna hard be to keep you from doing too much before getting married cause your gonna get closer with time and a lots of dates and usually people that loves each other wants to get closer(psychologically but also physically) the more they know each other so where will it stop if you start with that! Don’t questions yourselves because of the reaction of people! God bless you!😊

                                                        I know this video is pretty old now but I just wanted to let you guys know that I really love this video and I'm so glad you made it. I just came back to watch it again and I understood it more the second time. For everyone in the comments, they are not saying that hugging is a sin or that it makes someone impure they are identifying that Paul found hugging to be a potential hindrance in his walk with Christ and trying to wait until marriage. This video is intended to help those who are trying to wait until marriage identify what boundaries they may need to set to help them. I hope you guys all have a blessed day!

I thought I was the only one who thought hugs could be intimate and I felt like it may of been because Im 17 and I finally went from a sheltered home school life to public school where everyone hugs everyone and I was just not use to it. Now I know it was God being like HEY trust your gut.

                                                                    I am really grateful for the insights these videos give, even if I may have a different approach to things. Just giving me someone else's P.O.V. really give me something to think about. Not just this video but many other videos. There are people who genuinely don't think much of a hug but then again there are those who take everything too serious or too far and I think THAT may be the part that they were focusing on in this video. It's good to be aware of both sides to protect your own testimony and also to not potentially hurt the testimony of someone else's as well. I can see this comment is already long so sorry I'll try to be brief 😆. Like Morgan says " A hug is SO innocent but it CAN lead to OTHER things" Sorry if I put the emphasis on the wrong words this is just my interpretation. I don't think that they meant that a hug is sexual but being that close with someone that you're DATING (that you like and are infatuated with) with your bodies pressed together sometime so tight that you could feel their heart beat especially if you're nervous, both giving off strong pheromones CAN lead to OTHER things as they mentioned and maybe those other things could be thoughts not sexual acts( I'm not a chemist or biologist I didn't study the human body or chemicals that may be released from the human body just speaking from the little things I learned in high school anatomy and college) but in Matthew 5: 28 Jesus say to "anyone who looks at a women lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart" so if you're Christian calling these people extreme for making a video on hugs you serve a God that says even LOOKING with wanting or desire you're sinning. Not saying it always leads to the OTHER things but it CAN. I feel like this video was to serve as a warning to steer you away from the path of destruction. Maybe this advice wasn't for you that's alright but maybe there's someone that needed to hear this and this video served as a blessing to their life. I'm pretty sure that when Eve ate the fruit from the Tree of Wisdom she didn't think that it would lead to the destruction of humanity.[Genesis 3:6] You can't take the little things for granted. (Thank you for covering all the basis with this series) You should build a emotional connection first before anything physical starts to develop. I am really trying to be careful with my words and trying to be respectful to anyone who may read this but I'm only human and I'm bound to make a mistake. I may have said something off and didn't catch it but Paul or Morgan you're welcome to correct me if I interpreted what you said wrong, sorry if I did, I could keep going there are things I haven't mention but this is getting really long so I'm going to stop. Just really reading some of these other comments it's really discouraging, I get a little where they're coming from but how are we supposed to be a Christian community if we don't encourage each other with creative criticism, not saying all the comments came from Christian but some said they were in their comment. Again not trying to offend anyone but no one can learn from hate. Hopefully this comment isn't taken in a wrong way I am posting it with faith for it to be a blessing onto someone just like you guys posted this video. I thought it was so cute how Morgan looked at Paul when he sang I woke up like this. Sorry if I got your names wrong this is the first day I ever watched your videos. May God bless you, much love.

                                                                      I think that if you think hugging is a boundary issue, I think the problem is with you rather than the “issue” of hugging. Hugging =/= Sexual Immorality. I mean, their used to be talks of holy kisses in the Bible, a kiss on the cheek which literally was a innocuous greeting. Hugging is innocent unless you make it out as something else.

                                                                      So, yeah...I think you’re crazy or at least was sheltered enough that hugging at some point became sexual in your mind.

                                                                      • Anton Brown

                                                                        I don’t understand why people are so upset. Anything that ignites even the smallest amount of sensual passion in any way should be refrained from engaging in. If you know that hugging someone is gonna do that to you then don’t do it. If you have the faith that hugging someone won’t ignite any sensual feelings and its out of respect and honor then hug. Dont cross boundaries if you truly honor who you’re dating simple. Thats what they explained in this video.
