: Being alone in a house, apartment, or dorm room is usually unwise.
Situations where there’s no chance that a roommate could walk by, where your time is unaccounted for and where you are alone behind closed doors sets you up for future temptation.
I ask them about this I think boundaries are important for Christians to consider.
My personal pattern tended to start with me feeling guilt and conviction about displeasing the Lord in my then-current relationship.
So, in an emotional, guilt-laden moment, I would set up boundaries without praying about them, considering them, and fully understanding their consequences.
Then, after I received the Lord’s forgiveness, the guilt would subside and I would compromise on my boundaries.
It is our responsibility to be clear with others about what we will tolerate, and what we won't tolerate.
These boundaries clarify expectations, much like rules in a game.
