(3/3) Joshua Harris “I Kissed Dating Good-bye” Separates from Wife — The Wartburg Watch

The purity era has ended.

From Harris’s Instagram

“‎True love isn’t expressed in passionately whispered words an intimate kiss or a embrace; before two people are married, love is expressed in self-control, patience, even words left unsaid.” ― Joshua Harris

My thoughts:

  • I believe this is the prelude to an inevitable divorce.
  • Divorce stinks and hurts the children.
  • The Harris’ chose to make this announcement in the public eye.
  • Josh Harris is the face of the failed *Just follow these rules, be pure, and you will have a great marriage.”
  • Don’t kiss until you get married was baloney.
  • Better yet, don’t date. This was harmful.
  • Joshua Harris made bank on his bogus rules and used all means to get his books sold.
  • Joshua Harris was used by CJ Mahaney to push his own brand of control of Sovereign Grace Ministries.
  • Joshua Harris was raised by a fundamentalist-Greg Harris.
  • Joshua Harris eventually backed away from his *purity* deal, sending out this statement.
  • The fact I repudiate his unbiblical theology and the profound effect it had on many does not mean I am rejoicing in his current situation.
  • Just because I repudiate the *purity* theology does not mean I reject Biblical standards.(Can you believe there are people claiming this nonsense?)
  • Harris deserves to be critiqued in the public since he sought the public eye and made money from his enterprise.
  • The public deserves to know that his silly theology and rules didn’t even help him although he vowed his *rules* would make for wonderful marriages.
  • This is the end of an era.That’s good.
  • For those of you who want to revisit the past, here is a post I wrote looking at purity balls.

Here are a few posts about the matter.
