Understanding Marriage, July 31, 2005
By

I read this book at the request of a woman who has profoundly impacted my life on all levels. This book focuses on society’s very real issues in relationships. These issues have always existed, however today we see a steady increase in divorce, STD, abortion, etc. Why?

“The Hollywood Formula”
This belief instills into current society “fast love” concepts, love as a 100% pain-free experience, and the love/ identity crisis. It centers on looking to another person to complete yourself. “You complete me.”

The God formula emphasizes that you become your true self in Love, and by consequence you will draw true Love to yourself.

Chip explores what profound love is, and what it is not. Paralleling the holy trinity, he explains the 3 loves as the Greeks knew them:
agape – Love that is selfless, without condition, without judgment. (Spirit)
phileo – Love that begets beautiful friendship (Mind)
eros – Love that is erotic, passionate, and physical. (Body)

Profound, True, Love, is rooted in all three of the these.

Today, eros obviously reigns supreme. However, living only on eros is robbing you of the fullness that you could otherwise experience. Human being is mind, body and spirit. You cannot satiate the needs of mind and soul with what satiates the flesh.

Chip includes 12 salient points to consider in evaluating your relationship (which I recommend everyone consider before marriage if you truly seek a love that lasts). He provides 5 non-biblical arguments to avoid outside of marriage – again, to consider if you wish to find a love that lasts.

I do not agree with everything Chip presents here, most of which because I think mankind has misinterpreted much of what God communicates in the Bible. Many of the stories he relates seem to equate with experiencing the “wrath of God”, but they are actually people experiencing the ravages of guilt. Perhaps guilt is a form of God’s wrath… Regardless of those misgivings, I do fully agree that most people today have a warped perspective on love, and relationships.

If you take nothing from this book, try as hard as you can to “Walk in Love.” And I would like to add to Chip’s work and suggest we should all learn to:
Love everyone agape.
Love as many as possible in phileo,
Love one in eros.

If we could learn to do this, we would attain a far better understanding of God.

I leave you to ponder the meaning of this statement:
“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Substitute “me” with the statement of “I am.”

“No man cometh unto the Father, but by the way, the truth, and the life.”

You will truly know God when you live the way, the truth, and the life. Really think about all of what Jesus says in John 14.

Jesus told us 2000 years ago how to know God. Live like He did.

Love, , and Lasting Relationships, January 4, 2004

Before reading this book I had a dear friend share with me on how much of a blessing it was to him. He was so excited about it that I had to order it the next day. When I opened the pages I had no idea of what to expect but I knew as I started reading it it was truly something different.
It opened my eyes to all that has gone wrong and why in my past relationships. I was hooked after reading hollywood’s solution because it showed me what I had done wrong.
The more I read the more I wanted to read. When the truth is being ministered to you, you hunger for more. After reading this I wanted to purchase the book for everyone that I knew. It truly lifts the blinders off your eyes. Thank you Chris and Teresa for your devotion to those pages. They have made such an impact on my life and my views on relationships!
