Joshua harris stop dating the church
Patheos writer Libby Anne, a former conservative-turned-atheist, has since praised Harris for apologizing for his book."I read for the first time when I was 14 years old, and immediately commenced shaming myself for my schoolgirl crushes.
I tortured myself for years, desperately afraid that I was giving away pieces of my heart, never to get them back," said Libby Anne who is also a feminist."There are women out there who married the first guy they dated because they believed, under the influences of Harris's teachings, that they had given away a piece of their heart that they could never get back.
The church isn't some other generation's responsibility--it isn't somebody else's business.
Rather, we must be in love with and committed to God's plan and purpose through the church. We attend church, but we don't want to settle down and truly invest ourselves.
So this book is marking a very important transition in my life. Through the pages of this book, I'm calling my generation to do the same.
The church isn't some other generation's responsibility--it isn't somebody else's business. In a day and age when it is no longer scandalous to attack, demean, and mock the church, Joshua Harris’s Why Church Matters is truly a breath of fresh air.
We can’t use the excuse that the church has messed up too many times or that we’re disillusioned.
Jesus is the only person who has the right to disown and give up on the church.
