Say goodbye to dating book
Joshua Harris singlehandedly made the word “courtship” popular in mainstream evangelical circles.
Yesterday I responded to a post another blogger wrote about what she learned from Joshua Harris.
This means that when you marry, you will not be able to give your spouse your whole heart.
In other words, every time you have a romantic relationship that does not end in marriage, you are emotionally cheating on your future spouse.
I felt embarrassed by my body, and strove to hide it under loose fitting clothing. So good at it, in fact, that by the time I was actually in a relationship I had for all intents and purposes killed my own sexuality.
I might have wondered if I were asexual if I had known what that was, but as I sought to open myself up I found over time that I was a sexual being after all.
Today I’m following up by discussing what I learned from Joshua Harris.
Anna’s wedding day, the day she had dreamed about and planned for months.
Harris’ teachings on lust caused very real problems in my marriage as well.
I believed that every time my husband cheated on me every time he had sexual thoughts about another woman.
But because of Harris, I now believed that these daydreams were wrong. It got to the point where I was afraid to so much as : A guy went to his girlfriend’s house to pick her up, and she came out wearing a tight top, and he told her to go in and change because the shirt was too immodest.
The whole point is that we females need to protect our “brothers in Christ” by dressing modestly.
However, those years of repression permanently shaped my sexuality.
