When sexuality and chemistry and passion dies – because they are no good at relationships.
As Stanley reiterates, God did not design marriage to fix people’s flaws.
Pick an area of your life – debt, unresolved past issues, bad habits, dress, boundaries – and set a goal then list the steps that will put you on a path toward achieving that goal and becoming who the person - the person you’re looking for, is looking for.
Whether you still in the game, or back in a season of looking for the love of your life, this book can help. Fire in its proper context, it’s extremely destructive. If you never been married or are under thirty, even if you have lived with someone you underestimate the complexity of your sexuality and the long-term ramifications of your sexual conduct.
He states the way to resolve your relationship issues is with a clear head before you get involved with sex.
I agree, but I don't think waiting until your wedding night is a good maneuver for determining your sexual compatibility.
While the material in the discussion guide is intended for use with the video, some of the discussion questions will also reflect content used in the book.
It’s one component of a multifaceted biological, physiological, and psychological miracle that is you.As we all are aware, sex is leveraged to sell just about everything.Actually the promise of no strings-attached sex with a way above-average-looking person is used to sell just about everything.While I am a rather poor excuse for a Christian (I like Christmas Trees) with a one way ticket to hell for some matters involving lusting over a bare thigh (in church no less) for which I refuse to ask forgiveness, I am a rather dyed in the wool monogamist. Later chapters he drags out the sin and purity and starts thumping the Bible, but if you can get around the rhetoric, for the most part the suggestions in this book are good and would apply to non-religious folks as well as the religious. His main tenet is that instead of looking for the right partner become the right partner. That said however I will admit that I think he is right, jumping into sex prematurely blinds one to the relationship flaws.So for the price, I thought I would see what the good pastor has to say. Sex is a powerful binding element in human relationships, but it does not guarantee longevity in a committed relationship.So why not start now becoming the person your future spouse wants and needs.Your preparation now is worth much more than your commitment later.As Stanley uses the example: “Sex is like nutrition", regardless of your taste and preferences, nutritional principles determine the outcome of what you eat.Our bodies share a similar design when it comes to our sexuality to be expressed within a specific context.But then again I don't find premarital sex conducted in a committed loving relationship with the aim of marriage to be sinful. Yes, but I am not willing to bet yours so read what he has to say and decide for yourself.While I didn't agree with all he had to say and perhaps the theology behind it, I have to say if you can ignore the churchy hype, this guy has something important to say about love, sex, and marriage.
