Kiss dating goodbye
I’m learning that it has to do with whether we approach life from a posture of fear or one of faith.
Ever since I had come to the church I had been a leader of one kind or another. I heard about people feeling rejected if they didn’t measure up.
Is there always one right way to practice principles? If we do things “exactly right” or “by the book” does God promise us marriage or a great sex life?
I’m still walking through this process of reevaluation.
And I knew it was true because I saw that mindset in my own life.
My eyes were opened to the fact that in a church culture even well-intentioned practices and godly values can be applied in a way that deeply hurt people. Two years ago I stepped down from being a pastor to attend a graduate school of theology (it’s a long story and I talk more about it ).It was called “I Kissed Dating Goodbye.” When it first came out in 1997, a lot of people read it. And many others thought it was terrible — and told me so.
