You know, this Ed Snow guy, I mean, come on, like he kissed any girls at all during his teenage years. Uh huh, right. Look at that picture. He is so uptight and nervous, if a girl even talked to him he would have a panic attack. Guys like that didn't score make outs as teens, they played Dungeons & Dragons in their basement and if they rolled a 20 they got to debauch the fairy queen forest dryad, but only if she missed her saving throw.
And he totally misses the entire point of what Paul's point was with the whole "holy kiss" thing. He was telling the members of the early church to remember to brush their teeth, especially noticeable when fasting, because approaching someone with bad breath is just so distracting. Everyone knows Paul came from a wealthy Jewish family. Isn't it obvious Paul's dad was a dentist? Duh! So he was just telling people to brush and floss daily so they don't offend their Churchly brothers and sisters with stanky breath.
I tell you, Ed is about on par with Kevin when it comes to interpreting the Scriptures.
