Q1: What advice could you give to a young couple in college who are striving for a chaste, pure relationship. We’ve been friends for 2 years and dating for 6 months. And with the intense level of emotional closeness we feel, it’s hard for the desire for physical closeness to be kept at bay.
Q2: What is your take on cursing during prayer?
Q3: Does TOB have any insights on tattoos? I feel like everyone has a tattoo these days for their own personal reasons. Are tattoos seen as a way of dishonoring the body in the light of TOB?
