The pastor of one America’s largest churches is peeling back the covers on topics that might make some Christians squirm. Andy Stanley, pastor of the 30,000+ member North Point Ministries, addresses a range of issues from human sexuality to pornography in his latest book, The New Rules for Love, Sex, and Dating.  While the broader culture continues to fight over what “sexual morality” means, one thing is certain: Andy Stanley is determined not to sit this one out.

RNS: If these are the new rules for love, sex, and dating, what are some of the old rules that you don’t think work anymore?

AS: I don’t know that they are rules so much as assumptions. One of the big assumptions I challenge is: As long as I’m in love and the chemistry is right, then everything is going to turn out right. The average person would hear that and say, “That’s not true.” But that is the approach most people take to romantic relationships. The new rule is: don’t assume that just because you feel right, everything is going to be alright. We have to become the type of person that the person we’re looking for is looking for.


Single?  Dating?  Divorced? Looking for your “soul-mate”?  Thinking that if you met the “right person” everything would turn out “right”?  Well, you might need to think again!

On April 7th Pastor Jason is kicking off a new teaching series called The New Rules For Love, Sex & Dating.  In this series he will explore the challenges, assumptions, and land mines associated with love & dating in the twenty-first century. Buckle your seat belt because he is going to offer some the most practical and uncensored advice you will ever hear on this topic.

This message series will have something for everyone and is not for the faint of heart. The New Rules for Love, Sex & Dating just might turn your world upside down!  You do not want miss this series!

As I stumble through the awkward limbo of single, yet soon-to-be-married, I’ve tried to read every resource tagged within the “marriage,” “love,” and “relationships” genre. This, and the fact that I was desperate to escape the zillions of online articles dissecting 50 Shades of Grey from every possible angle (though I’m grateful for their messages), prompted me to download a copy of Pastor Andy Stanley’s new book on romantic relationships to my Kindle. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Geared towards the young, unwed, and culturally savvy, Stanley explains in the introduction that his purpose for writing The New Rules for Love, Sex, and Dating (Zondervan, January 2015) is to “increase your relational satisfaction quota.” What does that mean? Red flags started to rise. Still I pressed onward with hopes of encountering helpful gems of wisdom and Christian counsel over the next 200 pages. After all, the author is the Evangelical pastor of the largest church in America.

The book’s strength lies in providing clarity on the idea that love is an action, not an emotion. While presenting I Corinthians 13:4-8, Stanley moves slowly through each of the Apostle Paul’s love descriptors careful to paint a clear picture of what love looks like when it is “not easily angered” or “rejoices with truth.” By using Scripture—an overall rare occurrence in this book—Stanley creates an easily digestible to-do and not-to-do list with practical, contemporary examples that squash the fairytale “love” narratives inundating our culture. For this section, I was grateful.

Yeah, the whole girls who are promiscuous are skanky and the guys who are, are seen as awesome originated with St. Augustine and the rest of the early fathers of the Christian church.. Hate to break it to you, but that one is society.

Sexuality. Homosexuality. Chastity. Infidelity. Monogamy. Friendship. Love. Lust. Compassion. Passion. Perversion. Abuse. Spirituality. Pornography. Purity. There are some words that trigger... a lot. For far too long the church has remained silent on these issues or simply has said, “Thou shalt not!” We can do better.

Mike Erre is known for his candid and no-holds-barred discussion of vital issues.
He’s got a fresh perspective on sex, love and God. We’d like to invite you to join the conversation and take a fresh and honest look at issues that are as old as humanity itself.

If this series has brought up issues for you and you need someone to talk to, contact Lisa Fukumoto, Counseling Ministries, at lisa.fukumoto@evfreefullerton.com or 714.257.4316 to get in touch with one of our peer counselors or support groups.

RUN!!! This guy is a nut job. I am a Christian, so I will give it to you Straight. If this guy was genuine, first: He would not date someone who is not from his faith. Second: He would not be so proud and arrogant. Third: He would not have lied about the oral sex thing. Any sex before marriage is sin. Fourth: He would not use threats to keep you or control you. RUN like you ve never run before.
