There is a true, biblical romance that God intends for a man to share with his wife. Biblical romance is an expression of devotion and desire, lovingly governed by a passion to give. Such romance continually yields to the well-being of its beloved; it edifies rather than corrupts. It is beautiful. It is holy.
The disturbing reality is that talent has a lot more to do with advancement in the American Church than does godly character. In fact, some of its biggest stars are the most prideful and self-centered people in the Church. I say that because outward success tends to foster pride and selfishness in the best of folks. Fame has ruined more men of God than we can imagine. I know because it could have easily ruined me.
