Christian Kissing and Customs

 Greet one another with a kiss of love. - 1 Peter 5:14

The cultural custom of greeting was a kiss of love, or a ‘holy kiss’.  Jesus considered it bad manners not to have received one (Luke 7:45), and there is something important to learn here.  The cultural application does not have to be exactly replicated, but the principle of physical affection must, for we are physical creatures.  We consider this unimportant, because we think it is OK to come to church and never touch, never greet, never express affection to anyone else.  We must think again.
