    I like the example at the end, are you attending your best friend’s wedding, or imagining you’re in the wedding?

      Thank you for this. I have struggled with lust for years, mainly aided by books and TV. I know to look at reviews before watching now, but books are a lot harder. Even books marketed as Christian get uncomfortable sometimes and it’s often hard to know which those are without stumbling into them. By then, my emotions are already engaged and it’s hard to stop.

      Wow now I understand why some romantic books feel so “happy” and others don’t, some are like seeing two friends falling in love and it fills you with happiness but if it’s not like that and you wish you were the protagonist or you live through it it’s wrong .

  2. Thanks for this, Marian. I always find your articles thoughtful, and this needed to be said.

  3. Thank you so much for including the note on purity culture. It is SO difficult to address a topic like this without sliding into legalism, but you handled it with a light touch.

    That was really eye-opening, especially the example of a friend’s wedding. I hadn’t realised what a difference there is… Thank you 🙂

What say you?
