Joshua harris dating goodbye
I personally knew many people who had bought the book, and I witnessed church leaders use it as a religious text akin to Scripture itself.
No one would have ever dared to admit that their devotion to this book had reached that level, but the message that my generation in the evangelical church heard was clear: God had a very specific system in mind for finding a spouse.
I knew I'd disagree with the book, but I didn't expect to be so angry with the doctrine.
On multiple occasions, I had to put the book down and take a break because I was seething.
Like the story of 19-year-old Julie who worked as a receptionist in a doctor's office and was being sexually harassed by her boss.
Harris had reached a point where he'd have to stop and reevaluate his thoughts on his book.
He recognized that he needed to sit and actively listen to what others were telling him of their experiences with the book and the culture that he'd helped push to the center stage of evangelical thought.
Harris posited that, had Julie given in to her feelings towards her boss, she would have been guilty of ruining his marriage and family.
There are complete falsehoods about the nature of relationships and attachment.
