joshua harris divorced his wife and christianity (we stan)

people would be so much better if they were spiritual.
it’s that “trying to follow the bible word for word,
but still do my own set of sinning” is such a hard on killer.
joshua harris use to be a stark christian against gay marriage.
now…

An evangelical Christian author and dating guru who advocated against gay marriage has turned his back on his faith after splitting from his wife and apologized to the LGBTQ community.

Joshua Harris, 44, rose to fame as a pastor and Christian author who penned the bestseller I Kissed Dating Goodbye in 1997 – a book in which he argues against premarital sex.  

But on Saturday, he took to Instagram to reveal that he no longer considers himself a believer and apologized for his once ‘bigoted’ LGBTQ views writing, ‘By all the measurements that I have for defining a Christian, I am not a Christian.

 

His candid post followed his Instagram announcement on July 17 that he and his wife Shannon Bonne were separating after 21 years of marriage.  

personally,
i love these types.
they kept a ton of “secrets” as they were married.
their “shift”  always brings about a “coming out the closet“.
i’ll set the clock down for that next ig “announcement”.

not fonting that he is,
of course,
but it’s always the same scenario with others.
so now that joshua isn’t a christian any longer…

Is he a heavy Atheist now?

…or is this one of those situations that “don’t need a label“?

  1. He actually looks like he would do really well on scruff, grindr & etc.

    I am glad to see how this apology was worded and can tell, or at least assume, he’s being sincere.

  2. Why does it seem that those who hate gays the most are the ones that are secretly harboring feelings of attraction towards the same sex. Too bad for him that he’d been living a life all those years. I’m guessing this is why the change of heart.

  3. He still loves God but he is having a change of heart on different matters and beliefs. I’m a non practicing Christian myself which means I don’t follow the Bible word for word nor do I live by the Bible but I do believe in God and I know Jesus died for my sins. There are different levels to everything. Everybody isn’t a hardcore Bible thumper but that doesn’t stop you from having a relationship with God.

    If you don’t believe in God then that is your prerogative. I respect all ideologies.

  4. I don’t want to say this but I am going to say anyway. First, I’m not bashing women, but this seems like his bashing of gays came from his wife. I think when he finally told her that he changed how he feels about the LGBT+ Community, she had a fit. I’m with you on waiting until that closet door opens so we can say, we knew already we been waiting on you to say something. This is almost like True Blood when Rev. Newlin preached about gays and turned out he wanted to be gay for the longest. First person he went after was the biggest thot in the parish, Jason Stackhouse. I’m gon sit in a rocking chair like Miss Celie did in the Color Purple and soon as he pour too much kerosene on this fire, you gon see that rocking chair rocking by itself.

  5. It’s great that he got the revelation that people who are LGBTQ are humans and that how he dealt with them before was wrong. I’m happy for that. Personally, i don’t think you have to give up your faith to walk in a new way of thinking and acting. If anything, others Christians need to see someone like him treat LGBTQ the way they should be treated, the way Jesus would’ve treated them if he was physically on earth so they can repent for how they’ve been, but his faith or maybe the lack of faith is his to deal with. It’s unfortunate to hear about his divorce too. Whatever the case, I pray for both people involved and i hope he grows more in this newfound compassion that he’s has obtained with the LGBTQ community.
