One advantage i might have had over new readers, is that the _generic_ word "relationship" hadn't been so corrupted by people with directionless courtships. Therefore, it was easy for me to know that these teachings applied to much more than only one area of my life. That is, Not only did i learn about dating and marriage, but changed my view of friendships, any relationship, and therefore also God. God quickened my mind to think, that, since God is love, then why haven't i realized how important relationships (as in friendships or any relationship,) are?
There is one stupid part, but it can be brushed past. The authors build up a Greek word of the New Testament as meaning, essentially, "God's love". But then they contradict themselves with a footnote. In it, they say that some of the Brethren disagree about the meaning of this Greek word (agape). I guess they were admitting for fairness' sake that there are times when the New Testament doesn't use it to mean a super love. The stupid part, that is easily looked past, is that they continue to use a Greek word for God's love, rather than simply saying "God's love", or "God's kind of love". I'll admit that the term "Christian love" makes at least one appearance. The foreign word "agape", which they admit doesn't always mean God's kind of love, is artificially pushed for No justified reason. It is as if their Christian education, had a nigh Reformation-era-like, Papist attitude towards people understanding the Bible in their own language. This then secured the priest-mediator class as authorities above the Word of God. So, you see why i see this error as worth harping on. But, don't let it rob you of a wonderful book. _Spiritual_Relationships_that_Last_ is a wonderful book that can change your life for the better.
