Joshua Harris Announces Divorce: Major Misinformation & Assumptions

Purity and Courtship advocate and previous pastor Joshua Harris has announced his split from his wife. There are a lot of people making assumptions about why, and blaming the reason on his recent acknowledgement of the shortcomings in his book “I Kissed Dating Goodbye”

I think this is unfair and we simply don’t have enough information to back up such a theory. Harris’ wife has come out as an ex-vangelical and has publicly shared her journey away from conservative Christianity. I think this shift has far more to do with the changes that led to their separation.

I am not a Joshua Harris fan, as I am sure I disagree with him on many theological issues, but the way people are framing this situation is very unfair and most evidence points to the exact contrary. I don’t see anything to lead me to believe Joshua Harris has rejected all his beliefs and then decided to leave his wife. I think he still believes most of what he always has with the exception that he now thinks dating is perfectly fine (which it is). I think the split has much more to do with his wife’s journey away from conservative bible based Christianity and into “spirituality.”

If an unbelieving spouse wants to leave you, there isn’t really anything you can do about it. There really just is not enough information for people to be so freely accusing him of leaving his wife.

Liberation (A Christian Short Film)

My husband made this short film in 2012 when he was merely 23 with a budget of only $600 for a Speed Christian Film Contest . It was written, shot, cast, and edited in a single week. He made it with the intent of illustrating the gospel. He truly knows how to get a job accomplished regardless of circumstances and limited resources. ( My husband is filmmaker David Kirk West, owner of Buck the System Productions) if you’d like to check out more of his work. )

This film shows that it is only through putting our trust in Christ that we can be saved. Regardless of one’s past, we are washed white as snow if we simply ask Jesus to save us. Once we are saved nothing we could ever do or not do can change that! It is merely trusting in what HE has done not of our own good works. This film follows one soldier who despite living an evil life, realized this truth before it was too late.

 

 

 

Welcome to My Channel (Kassie West Previously Kassie Dill)

This youtube channel is meant to be a space for those who love faith, family, and motherhood. We will be discussing societal ills as well as topics like the negative impact of feminism and statist policies on society. My primary goal with this channel is to give others the knowledge I wish I had known when I was younger to save them years of wasted time and pain. I’d love to connect with fellow homeschooling families as well as anyone who is like minded or interested in the mentioned topics. Looking forward to this new season and posting videos regularly again for the first time in almost a decade!

Why We Don’t Vote and Don’t Feel Bad About it

My husband and I discuss why we didn’t vote yesterday, why we don’t feel bad about it (at all) and what we did instead. The belief that voting is some moral duty regardless of what you are asked to choose between is a fallacy we break down in detail.
