BONUS! #235: How the Purity Movement Hurt Us

"I always thought that if I did everything the way God told us to, then I would be blessed, I would be happy and I would have a good marriage. That was decidedly not the case."  Well-meaning parents and youth pastors promised marital bliss if you could only make it to the altar as a virgin. For many, the promise didn't deliver. In this episode, Juli brings truth and compassion to the imperfect purity message of the 90s.

    This is an excellent episode!!!! (and bonus episode too). I've read Rethinking sexuality and listened episodes 160 and 166 and my mind blow at first but now I understand God much better. But around me, I see the bad effects of not dating and all the purity movement. What do you think about True Love Dates book by Debra Fileta? Is it a good guideline for teenagers? I want a biblical perspective, like you have in your material. Thanks a lot.
