In our daily lives, single Christian women and men have found comfort and enjoyment with the company of their boyfriends and girlfriends, so much so that they have become emotionally dependent on each other. However most often than not, this emotional and physical closeness has exposed them to the probable consequences and dangers of pre-marital sex.

His accusations are unreasonable and unfair always directing attention away from himself.
Some will battle their depression with exercise, some with hobbies, some with recreation, and some with television. Some are satisfied and believe this to be the answer, but there will always be another episode of despair without the relationship of Jesus Christ. At least, this is what I've found over my lifetime.
