Synopsis: How can the Bible actually inform our love life? When we peel away the church culture, what does God really say about dating? What's the best that God can offer for our relationships?

For those of us who have already "crossed the line" -- is it too late for us? Can the church offer anything more than guilt-trips for sex and dating?

The church is either bashing sex, or bashing others who bash sex. It's either sexual repression or sexual leniency.
Can the church still offer real wisdom for break-ups, heartbreak, lust, pornography, singles, struggling couples, and those navigating the consequences of their sexual regrets?

The Christianese Dating Culture starts from scratch about God's heart for us in our relationships. It pulls away the layers of passive-aggressive teaching on dating and asks the bigger questions. It talks about Joshua Harris and courtship and "I Kissed Dating Goodbye." It talks about Taylor Swift's sexual theology. It gets personal, about a suicide attempt over a girl, a fifteen year porn addiction, and the painful non-romantic process of finally getting married. It answers real questions from real people about the gritty, weird, embarrassing endeavor of dating. By dismantling the problematic ideologies of the Christianese church subculture, we can journey together towards the kind of church that Jesus died for -- the ultimate romance that transforms us.

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Rob Connelly (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The church does some really weird things when it comes to dating. You might have done some of them. Courtship, purity rings, contracts, and emotional virginity. If you re a serial dater, you ve given away pieces of your heart. If you pray together, you ve committed the sin of prayer-sex. And if you ve crossed the line, you re doomed forever to leftovers. But for those of us who have already crossed the line - is it too late for us? Are these ideas hurting more than helping? And can the church offer anything more than guilt-trips for sex and dating? A bizarre subculture of Christianese dating has sprung up with really bad advice on all sides. Scare tactics and Bible-shaming have resulted in a panicked paranoia and guilt about sex, but the backlash to Christianese dating has borne a resentful subculture of its own. This tension has caught unwitting Christians in the crossfire of confusion. The church is either bashing sex, or bashing others who bash sex. How can we find the core truth about relationships amidst this reactionary cycle? How can we balance between Hollywood-shallow romance and a restrictive prison of fear? And what about real wisdom for break-ups, heartbreak, lust, pornography, singles, struggling couples, and those navigating the consequences of their sexual regrets? The Christianese Dating Culture starts from scratch about God s heart for us in our relationships. It pulls away the layers of passive-aggressive teaching on dating and asks the bigger questions. It talks about Joshua Harris and courtship and I Kissed Dating Goodbye. It gets personal, about a suicide attempt over a girl and a fifteen year porn addiction. It answers real questions from real people about the gritty, weird, embarrassing endeavor of dating. By dismantling the problematic ideologies of the Christianese church subculture, we can journey together towards the kind of church that Jesus died for - the ultimate romance that transforms us.
