Read i kissed dating goodbye online
One of my main disagreements with this book is how Harris' portrayal of singleness reflects on marriage.
He writes that, "Until you realize God's gift of your singleness, you'll probably miss out on the incredible opportunities it holds.
A woman's heart, and a woman's life---And a woman's wonderful love.
Do you know you have asked for this priceless thing As a child might ask for a toy?
Either way, I know that I am sure that I do not want this to be the future of Christianity. When does the Holy Spirit stop transforming me into someone who is more like Christ?
My last major concern in Harris' "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" lies in his philosophy that when you are dating, you "own" someone. If you think that maybe Sarah and Philip aren't individually grown ENOUGH to marry or even date, then what age will they be?
You require a cook for your mutton and beef, I require a far greater thing; A seamstress you're wanting for socks and shirts---I look for a man and a king.
His points on several common-sense dating principles such as making your parents your teammates, and setting guidelines based upon your personal history and convictions, etc. These principles, although already pretty generally known, are what I'm guessing so many people who have liked the book focus on. In a book written to a culture which practiced arranged marriages, dating didn't exist, and so the Bible doesn't cover it. Keep your money that you spend on this and go to a friend, a parent, a pastor, or a therapist and ask their advice, because the information that they would give to you has a higher logic/sentence ratio than this book does.If both men and women follow this advice, many Godly men and women will be waiting forever, never sure if they are ready for marriage, while their brothers and sisters in Christ drop from the church like flies, unable to keep pure in their sexual relations because nobody else who shares their beliefs are sure they are ready to marry.
