Christian Quote #158: Paul Washer On Relationships

They say, “Yeah, I’m in love.” I go, “What do you mean? Why do you want to marry this girl?” “Well, man she’s just beautiful.” Okay. “..and I just love being around her.” Great. “We can talk and I just feel like she completes me. She just fills me. I just want to be with her.” And I go, “Wow, okay, but let me just throw that back at you, make sure I’m understanding. You want to be with this girl because she meets all your selfish, self-centered, passions and desires. Is that what you’re telling me?”

“No, that’s not what I mean.” “But son, that’s what you’re telling me. You want to be with her because she’s beautiful? Fine. What happens when she’s not beautiful anymore? Secondly, what happens when someone else comes along who’s more beautiful than she is? And that person will come along.. Uh, you want to be with her because you can talk with her? Okay, well what happens when you can’t talk with her anymore? What happens when someone else comes into your life you can talk with? Are you leaving her? You want to be with her because she’s lovely? What happens when she’s not lovely? Does the unlovely not need love?
