Jerry Bridges suffered a major cardiac arrest on Saturday, and went home to the Lord on Sunday night. I am extremely grateful for how the Lord has used his writing in my life and in the lives of so many.

If pornography kills love and worships (fantastical) power, then it’s time to start asking whether a culture drowning in its mire is being primed for the politics of ruthless authoritarianism. If the age of Tinder chases out love and chastity, marriage and faithfulness, might it also chase out things like liberty, dignity, and sacrifice?

Though these are important aspects of the engagement period and though every engaged couple has differing circumstances, I’m wondering if it’s time for us to rethink the idea of long engagements. I’m extremely grateful for godly mentors in my life who helped me think through this all-too-common practice. Faithful Christians might disagree on this, but I think there are four reasons to rethink a long engagement.

In fact, I do not think it is too strong to call corporate worship the single most important habit of the Christian life.
