“Never go into a house alone with one of the opposite sex. Never, never enter a bedroom alone with one of the opposite sex. Do not neck or pet. Now, admittedly there is no place in the scriptures where the Lord has said, ‘Thou shalt not neck or pet.’ I know that, but he has said, ‘Thou shalt not commit adultery, or fornication, or anything like unto it.’ Never park on a lonely road with just the two of you alone. Do not read pornographic literature. Do not attend R- or X-rated movies, and avoid drive-ins. Do not spend time in drinking or gambling establishments.
