    • You're = the contraction for you are. Used in a sentence - You're not very bright are you.
    • Your = shows possession. Used in a sentence - Your misuse of the contraction you're is grossly offensive.

    A Fundamentalist is someone who practices a hermeneutic of trust toward the Scriptures, but not toward his fellow Christian.

    "Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction." - Blaise Pascal

    "Self- righteousness can feed upon doctrines, as well as upon works; and a man may have the heart of a Pharisee, while his head is stored with orthodox notions of the unworthiness of the creature and the riches of free grace." ~ John Newton

    Probably so. Its the "Gateway Sin" because it would lead to the sin of murder if my daughter was being "petted".

    The views expressed in this post are my opinion. However, my opinion is worthy of adoption by the masses.

    I don't know based upon the Scripture. I do not see anything explicitly defining it. It would depend upon what is in the mind and the purpose of doing it.

    I do know that my wife and I practiced total abstinence of all physical and even verbal forms of affection until we were married. We did not hug, kiss, hold hands, or use words of endearment to each other until we were married. Neither of us expressed that such actions were sin, but we just acted this way naturally.

    Now that we are married, we hug, kiss, pet, hold hands, and use terms of endearment very frequently. It was not difficult to wait, and reserving our hearts for each other really paid off!

    Now, I can only give my testimony and recommendation. I refuse to call something a "sin" unless the Bible explicitly makes it clear. For us, it was a matter of love, not sin.

    Both forms involve touching over the clothes. The "heavy" category is roughly between the belt and the knees.
