If he doesn’t have the same story, he will feel intensely convicted and unworthy.
You’re the one responsible for how the love story turns out. But on two occasions, I dated girls who were pretty seductive in nature, and I paid dearly. I’ll never forget taking a flight to Vancouver BC one night, reading through the book of Proverbs and realizing what the source of my problems was, I was dating a girl the book told me not to date.To address sexual matters, especially, is often a graceless conversation, and yet a conversation that can only be healing in a tone of complete and utter grace.My blog, while straight and toned to the language many use while talking over a beer, lacked the tone of grace. Meanwhile, I can’t wait to see his revised, revamped list of rules.…Looking at a few other responses to what Miller wrote, I was especially sad to read this post from a Christian woman who seems to have followed “the rules”:…During the time they dated, life was full of rainbows and cookies and puppies and babies. One of my all-time favorite girlfriends, a girl I consider amazing and will make a terrific wife to somebody some day, actually spent years living with a guy and has a fairly liberal standard regarding sexuality…There are so many things wrong with those paragraphs… It’s also irresponsible to say that those are the rules you must follow to have a “good love story.” They’re not. You don’t even need to step outside a Christian church to find examples of that.(Of course, like a lot of high school couples, they eventually broke up. but they still remain friends to this day.)That couldn’t have been a love story, though. (to begin with, who the hell reads the book of Proverbs on an airplane? Miller is offering suggestions for a very type of relationship — one I have very little desire to have, but one which may work just fine for him.I’m convinced a number of preachers drive as many people away from Jesus as they invite toward Jesus through the harshness of their rhetoric.
I’m not interested, then, in driving people away from a good love story simply because I used language and presented ideas they found offensive.
Life would be miserable without her.” Congrats to the happy couple!
Christian author Don Miller likes to talk about how your life ought to be a compelling story, one that’s going somewhere, has a purpose, has real ups and downs, isn’t stagnant, etc.
Because all men have a problem dating women who hooked up with guys in the past?
He also told women they had to “be willing to suffer.”What this means for you is that your love story needs to have a lot of lonely crying in it.
That was an enormous mistake on my part.*Applause*Miller spoke with Rachel and agreed to post a formal response to his own comments, written by Rachel, on his site soon… I have always dated “good Christian men.” I’ve kept myself above board in all aspects in my relationships with them.
