Many evangelicals have ignored her sexual sin and godless behavior to make her into a Daniel-like figure, which is inaccurate.
"According to the Bible, it is less about where is the line, but more about when is the time," he reiterated.
Christian couples who are not yet married need to seek the counsel of parents, grandparents, pastors, and other close people whom they trust, he said.
