Flirting is always dangerous for unmarried people trying to stay pure, to engage in, but for married couples, it is often an enticement to commit adultery. Never before has it been easier than with the internet!

Online chat groups and mixed gender pool rooms etc promote not only flirting, but immorality. Two of our family members have been divorced because of online chat room romances. They were left by their errant spouses because their spouses had found someone else online. It is a sad state of affairs! Literally!

Online or cyber sex is *sex*... it is just as damaging as real life sex to the emotional and trusting side of marriage and is sin! For this reason, Chris and I never go into online chat lines or strike up cyber friendships with the opposite sex. We are aware of the dangers! But a lot of people aren’t apparently. They become attached to someone online and sometimes this can lead to a rendezvous or an affair and sometimes, as in our family, sometimes a divorce.

Often when an online friendship is struck up, it starts off innocently enough, but can often escalate. Especially once flirting and innuendo takes over. Which is often. So, because we value and protect our marriage, we never go online and chat, except to our family.

Flirtatious behaviour is sinful, especially when done trying to entice someone else's husband! It is not proper behaviour for a Christian. We are wise to avoid chat rooms, messaging etc and any other behaviour that entices someone to sin and/or lust over someones’ marriage partner.

But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Matthew 5:28


  1. Good Morning Glenys, How are you? On this fine Monday morning I am sitting here with a cup of tea (I only drink tea, white, no sugar), and spending time with you. A great topic, which I happen to agree with everything you've said. A sensitive issue to discuss, but you've done a great job writing this. I can see you put a lot of love and thought into this. I'm saddened though that people in your family have been hurt as a result. I hope the week is off to a great start for you, and that God blesses you richly. You mentioned on your profile about your health. Praying for God's miraculous touch. Nothing is impossible for Him. Bye for now, KC

    1. Good morning, KC. Sitting here with a cup of tea, white and two sugars... with a banana on top of 2 pieces of toast! Yes, I know- not very slimming! I am praying for a respite in health problems.... it will come, but I have to wait on the LORD.... Thanks so much for your prayers for my healing... I do appreciate them! It was lovely sharing a cuppa today with you. Blessings!

  2. So very true, thanks for sharing.

  3. So true - good insight! Marriage is about fidelity, including emotional fidelity. Each time we engage with someone of the opposite sex we need to be aware of our emotional fidelity to our spouse, if we're choosing to talk with this person BEFORE our spouse, it's a warning sign!

    1. That's also so true, Lori! Infidelity often starts innocently, but escalates... like most sin, it is usually innocuous initially! Thanks for sharing tea with me. Blessings!
