Soul Ties 25 – Platonic Relationships 3


Welcome to #SoulTies 25. In this this session, we continue with our study on platonic relationships. What are platonic relationships? Are they necessary? Are they really safe? Can they be maintained without any sexual involvement? What has the bible got to say about them?

Good evening y’all.

1. “Platonic relationships 3” starts now. Hope you all had a great week so far. #SoulTies

2. I want to state that we are not here to condemn anyone or stigmatise anyone who has repeatedly fallen into sin due to #SoulTies

3. We are here to expose #SoulTies as the works of the enemy that the blood of Jesus has been shed to purge us from.

4. We are also not here to provide excuses and reasons for Christians to continue in sin due to a misunderstanding of grace. #SoulTies

5. The Bible states clearly in Romans 6:23 that the wages of sin is death #SoulTies is no excuse for us to continue in sin

6. We are here to work out our salvation (that Jesus already paid with His blood) from #SoulTies according to God?s word.

7. Tonight we are looking into d subject of platonic relationships, in d context of #SoulTies. Are they good or are they bad?

13. If you missed Platonic relationships 1, last week, it’s up on the blog here.  #SoulTies

14. Defn: A platonic relationship is pure affection, subsisting between persons of opposite sex, unmixed with sexual desires. #SoulTies

15. Remember, I have previously said before that most men interpret love through their organs and women through their hearts. #SoulTies

16. Hence, d ultimate way you prove love to a carnal & uncircumcised man is to have sex with him. Works differently for women. #SoulTies

17. We stopped last night at a point where we drew the difference between gist mates and platonic friends. #SoulTies

18. We also saw that the platonic arrangement suits women better who want affection without sex or commitment from a man. #SoulTies

19. However, a properly constituted man wouldn’t stop at an exchange of intense affections with a woman but would want sex. #SoulTies

20. Most times, men in platonic relationships get the sex when they are already in #SoulTies and don’t want the man to leave. #SoulTies

21. Some women even offer the sex as a way of retaining the affection of the man so platonic evolves into sexual. #SoulTies

22. We also have scenarios where married people operate platonics with 3rd parties but disguise them as ordinary friendships. #SoulTies

23. Soon enough, they evolve into flings and full blown sexual affairs if they are not nipped in the bud. #SoulTies

24. The woman would either offer the sex to retain the man or the man demands the sex in order to be retained. #SoulTies

25. 1 Cor 7:1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me:It is good for a man not to touch a woman. #SoulTies

26. 1 Cor 7:2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. #SoulTies

27. The word “touch” in vs 1 means “haptomai” in the Greek. It means to “attach ones self”. That means #SoulTies.

28. Vs 2 says that if you are prone to such attachments, you must get your own wife or your own husband. #SoulTies

29. Vs 2 also implies that it isn’t possible for a properly constituted man and woman to be in #SoulTies and not consider sex at a point.

30. VS 2 also validates d assertion that u cannot have extremely strong & unlimited #SoulTies between man & woman without sex. #SoulTies

31. I am assuming a man who isn’t family with the woman. #SoulTies

32. Agreeing to a platonic friendship with your ex boyfriend is foolishness. You’ll be back in bed very shortly. #SoulTies

33. Based on these 2 verses of scriptures, I hereby submit that platonic relationships are FORBIDDEN in Christian marriages. #SoulTies

34. Another reason why married Christians can’t do platonics is that our assets are exclusively owned by our spouses. #SoulTies

35. What I mean in 34 is that your spouse owns your soul and body so you can’t dish a portion of it to a platonic friend. #SoulTies

36. The lady in “Platonic Relationships 2” operating a platonic at work with a homosexual was wrong. #SoulTies

37. In Christianity, your spouse has every right to lay claim on your whole affections leaving nothing for platonic spare ribs. #SoulTies

38. Genesis 3:16 Unto the woman he said, … and thy desire shall be to thy husband, …

39. From the above scripture, the wife’s desire is to her husband not husband + platonic friend. #SoulTies

40. In the same vein, the husband’s desire should be towards his wife not wife + platonic friends out there #SoulTies

41. Platonics involve heavy #SoulTies and you are not allowed to do such with people outside a Christian marriage.

42. Before the liberals jump out and start throwing their toys at me out of their prams, let’s define platonics again. #SoulTies

43. Defn: A platonic relationship is pure AFFECTION, subsisting between persons of opposite sex, unmixed with sexual desires. #SoulTies

44. How do you operate a platonic relationship with one other than your spouse, dishing out huge affection? #SoulTies

45. How do you trade full and pure affection outside marriage without sex? If you are good with this, come teach us. #SoulTies

46. By that definition, affection could entail everything without sex like candle-lit dinners, hugs, French kisses, val cards #SoulTies

47. By that definition, affection could entail watching movies together, spending hours together? #SoulTies

48. Ain’t that cheating already, even without the sex? How do we redefine affection here to know where & when to stop? #SoulTies

49. Now to the unmarried crew. U ain’t ready for this yet. #SoulTies

50. The only place where platonics are tolerated amongst Christian singles is where there is some intention to marry. #SoulTies

51. In courtship and dating for Christians, no sex is permitted but there’s a whole load of affections being exchanged. #SoulTies

52. In courtship, we play it platonic. #SoulTies NO SEX Heb 13:4

53. As a Christian, why would you exchange that volume of affections with one whom you don’t plan to marry? Senseless. #SoulTies

54. Sister, looking for a platonic relationship in high school makes little sense. Boy has just reached puberty. He wants sex. #SoulTies

55. Therefore, those dating & courtship phases for Christian singles must remain platonic. Ie no sex involved. #SoulTies

56. Why is that? A platonic relationship HARDLY remains platonic if affections continue to flow unrestricted. #SoulTies

57. A platonic relationship will graduate to romantic and then sexual if those affections keep flowing. #SoulTies

58. Some Bozos who dumped sisters turn up again trying to con them into platonics saying “let’s just be friends” #SoulTies

59. Sister, if you fall for that, your emotions will get wrapped up on Bozo again and he will lay you and dump you again. #SoulTies

60. A common Bozo trick is to con sisters into platonic friendships long enough to get her emotions activated. #SoulTies

61. There’s something about a guy being always there that breaks a woman’s defenses down and opens her up to stuff. #SoulTies

62. Even when you refuse to date or marry a guy, your allowing him to stay in friend zone is a sign of weakness. #SoulTies

63. Smart Bozos know that staying long enough in your friend zone as a platonic friend will get him between your legs. #SoulTies

64. All affectionate relationships I saw in bible ended in breakup, sex or marriage. Please show me a platonic when u find one. #SoulTies

65. These days men and women are even more sexualised with the advent of porn etc Sex starts for many much earlier now. #SoulTies

66. So how would you fall for deception that we can trade FULL affections & still keep our hands away from each other’s groins #SoulTies

67. On this basis, there is no place for platonic arrangements between Christian singles except if your plan is to fornicate. #SoulTies

68. Remember that the definition of platonic excludes any binding commitment such as courtship and marriage. #SoulTies

69. This arrangement perfectly fits a man who ultimately wants sex by capturing your heart without any commitment to a future. #SoulTies

70. This arrangement also fits women whose husbands are either remote or women who can’t or don’t plan to commit to marriage. #SoulTies

71. I know some folks will say that they have seen some long platonic friendships that didn’t end up in sex. #SoulTies

72. This is where your folly lies. When you trade full intimate affections with another person, you get into #SoulTies with the person.

73. When one of you has to move on to marry or to flirt with another victim, you are left with memories & #SoulTies to deal with.

74. The #SoulTies you are left to deal with automatically equates to the ones you deal with in the event of a breakup.

75. Your soul is now divided. A part of you is with platonic friend who dumped you and you can’t connect with the next person. #SoulTies

76. And by the way, any platonic friendship long enough with a man who isn’t a homosexual will end in bed. #SoulTies

77. Most baby mamas wanted platonics but they had to tolerate d sex so the Bozo doesn’t leave for the other girl offering sex. #SoulTies

78. I don’t believe that platonic friendships in a sexualised generation like ours won’t always result in sex and heartbreaks. #SoulTies

79. My conclusion are as follows: a) platonics are expressly FORBIDDEN in Christian marriages.

80. B) platonics amongst singles would always result in sex or painful break ups that reduce your effectiveness. #SoulTies

81. I expect a few uprisings and objections but the scriptures cannot be broken. 1 Cor 7:1-2 and Gen 3:16 #SoulTies
