Re: 22, Christian, Engaged, Living with H2B

It's fantastic that you have both found Jesus Mrs Durnintobe. Jesus comes to us in whatever situation we are in.

It is not lying not to reveal certain information. It is possible to stumble or enable someone who could point to your situation as an excuse to do the same. It is clear from the scripture that God blesses sex within marriage but that sex outside of marriage is fornication. The scripture comes to mind avoid all appearance of evil.

This is not to say that your situation cannot be revealed to certain stronger married couples but I think the pastor is being wise in that you should not plaster this information all over the church and risk stumbling other unmarried brothers and sisters. I don't think that would be honouring Christ's word personally.
