You don’t have to listen to any of them, but this will help me out tremendously. Because if enough people do this, I can get in New and Noteworthy (which I will stay in for anywhere between 2-8 weeks) and raise more awareness for the book! This is a podcast interview with Challenging Opinions on the problems with the purity movement, especially after marriage. Download my second Challenging Opinions interview in i Tunes Listen Online Joshua Harris is a popular name in the circles I grew up in, namely Conservative homeschooling ones.🙂 If you’d like to go the extra mile, please listen to an episode or two and then rate and review the podcast. He has recently been making some serious waves on social media because he is rethinking his famous book, I Kissed Dating Goodbye.
I do not expect the film to be the end-all-be-all of rectifying what has happened in the past, and I do not think it should be or even could be no matter what is said or done.
The premise is that purity is good, but we should not make an idol out of it and it should always point us back to Christ.
Episodes for this podcast include things like “Ladies who Lust”, “Everything wrong with ‘I Kissed Dating Goodbye'”, “Healing Wounds”, “Singleness and Relationships”, “Modesty”, “Mindset in Marriage”, “Pornography and Purity”, “Apostasy in Purity Culture”, and many more!
For the first time when I actually spoke to him, I saw him not as some evil author out to make a profit on innocent children, but as a fallen man and, more importantly, a Child of God, just as we all are.
Many people are up in arms in support of, against, or in skepticism of the film due to their own experience with Harris’ book.
