The spectacle of the two trying to communicate also amassed thousands of fans on You Tube after their goofy, light-hearted clips were uploaded there.In one of their most-watched videos from You Now, Abu Sin tells Crockett: "I am Saudi Arabia." Wearing a low-cut tank top, she smiles and responds with a flick of her blonde hair: "That's cool, I'm America." Throughout the conversation, he periodically blurts out in Arabic, "what's she saying!?He replied: It is not permissible for any man to correspond with a woman who is not his mahram, because of the fitnah (temptation) involved in that.
I think the line is crossed when we stop looking at someone as a person and begin treating them as objects.""I think that flirting is fine as long as both people understand what the flirting means -- that it is done in fun or joking or to express interest in another SINGLE person.
I think flirting crosses the line when it becomes inappropriate, when there is the appearance (to the other person or to someone else present) of something "funny" (for lack of a better word)."According to dictionary.com, “flirting” is “making playfully romantic or sexual overtures.” Considering what the Bible says about lust and this definition, is God OK with flirting? I am simply opening the discussion on a topic of intimate behavior that is often avoided in religious circles. I just think it’s wise sometimes to examine how we interact with each other to make sure we are living godly lives that are pleasing to God and uplifting to others. Flirting is mentioned in the Bible only a few times.
Crockett released a video saying she doesn't really understand the situation in Saudi Arabia, but that many people are blaming her as the reason for his arrest.
She added: "Obviously, I think this whole situation is totally crazy and unfair, but I don't feel I should be getting any hate for this because I have no control over it. It's not my fault that he got this fame from it or that I got it.
" Appearing nervous and excited, he later offers her some of the few English words he knows, proclaiming: "I love you too. I love you too." She tells him: "Aw, I don't even know what you're saying, but I love you so much." But his efforts to woo the US vlogger landed him in big trouble as he was arrested in the Saudi capital Riyadh while hanging out with his friends.
Their exchanges took on extra significance in Saudi Arabia as it could constitute a violation of the conservative country's cyber crime law which prohibits producing material that harms public order, morals or religious values.However, the use of the word in this phrase and others, such as “flirting with disaster,” shows the danger associated with its meaning.In most instances when “flirting” is used in the Bible, it is related to sin. If all you want is your own way, flirting with the world every chance you get, you end up enemies of God and his way. (James 4:4, The Message) Moreover, the Lord said, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty and walk with outstretched necks and with undisciplined (flirtatious and alluring) eyes, tripping along with mincing and affected gait, and making a tinkling noise with [the anklets on] their feet, Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the heads of the daughters of Zion [making them bald], and the Lord will cause them to be [taken as captives and to suffer the indignity of being] stripped naked.But there is enough reference to “sexual overtures” to assume that this potential violation of the purity of our hearts and actions is on God's righteousness radar.Even if you don’t think flirting is a sin, which I’m not saying it is, you’ve got to acknowledge the danger connected with it.Undoubtedly these private chats are not regarded as khulwah in the sense that he people involved cannot see one another, but they are one of the greatest causes of fitnah as is well known.
