18 rules for celestial dating

David of old, choice in the sight of God, allowed his eternal soul to fall into the depths of hell. I have looked into the tear-filled, sorrowful eyes of too many good latter-day saint youth involved in sexual transgressions not to know how easy it is to fall!

Can we say that God has been with us as much as He was with David in his youth? I have asked myself time and time again why some fall and others don't.

To fail to believe that is to have fallen prey to one of Satan's biggest lies. Had David turned away his head and not invited Bathsheba to his home, he likely would be exalted today.

Surely such a question requires a very complicated answer.

Nevertheless, after many hundreds of hours of interview, several common errors, among those who had fallen into transgression, became obvious.

Time after time, physical surroundings, circumstances, and activities were all repeated, and all seemed to set the stage for sin to enter into young lives.

Bitterness, regret, sorrow, and a feeling of despair quickly replaced excitement and enthusiasm.

The message of the following rules is plain and simple: You CAN and must be the one to control your life in order to be free from sin.

Where you are, who you are with, where you are going, what you are doing, what time you are doing it, are all controlled by you, and will be to your good or to your detriment.

In order to help substantiate what I have written, I have used many quotes from President Kimball, but much of the inspiration comes from countless hours of interview with young people.

To live these rules will require spiritual strength added to a sincere desire to do what is right.

Prayer, scripture study, attendance at church, and service, are all necessary prerequisites to having the strength to follow these rules.

The rules are strict, but make no mistake, so is the Lord!
