After making the surprising announcement that he’s divorcing his wife of 19 years, Joshua Harris has released yet another alarming statement on Instagram regarding his Christian faith.
It seems the author of the controversial best-seller I Kissed Dating Goodbye has also now kissed Christianity goodbye as well.
“I have undergone a massive shift in regard to my faith in Jesus,” wrote Harris. “The popular phrase for this is ‘deconstruction,’ the biblical phrase is ‘falling away.’ By all the measurements that I have for defining a Christian, I am not a Christian.”
The shocking announcement follows the author’s recent denouncement of the principles he preached in I Kissed Dating Goodbye, a book encouraging Christian singles not to date. The popular 1997 publication has influenced purity culture in the church for over two decades.
