New and fresh site for sexdating
Too many other authors that I've read seem to start their discussion and reasoning on this topic based off of personal anecdotes, or slippery-slope arguments.To have a book start with the Bible and looking at the point of marriage first is a refreshing pers I've read several books before on dating/courtship/whatever-you-want-to-call-it. Pros: I love how this book starts investigating this topic by going right to the Bible and founding the entire discussion in the Gospel.A sense of security or required commitment is an illusion.I am hesitant to say a critique because the book is very good but I have to say that I was shocked by their disappointing brief section on masturbation which I found soft and out of line with all of the (good! ) things they said in the preceding chapters about the point of any sexuality to be to model the unity of christ and the church.It became somewhat repetitious at this point, but the message was driven home.And while I don't agree with all of the practical applications they tried to drive with this (while their argument for why dating isn't exclusive sounded alright in theory, I can't see it working in practice) the general principle here was really on-target.It provides the only good answer I have ever heard to the sickening question, “how far is too far?” (Hint: it’s not prayerfully coming to your own convictions).
Their central point of relationships--that there are only three kinds of relationships in the Bible (marriage, family, neighbor), and that while some things change over time, you can't just add a whole new category of relationship--was excellent and completely transformed my whole paradigm of thinking on this issue.Cons: While I appreciated the fact that the book didn't rely on personal anecdotes and stories, it would have been nice if they had some of them in order to give some pictures of what their theories look like in practice.Overall: It's hard to list all the different things about this book that I liked since this book has fundamentally changed the way I think about relationships.Terrifying people about sex can cause them to be sex maniacs!I read this book because some high school boys we know were reading it and I wanted to be able to talk to them about it.
