Pastoral Theology Brief: Cohabitation, Repentance, and the Fruit of Repentance
In this brief, Prof. Schuetze discusses the great need for co-habitation to be addressed immediately, rather than allowing the problem to “fix itself” when the couple marries. The goal is that the couple would recognize their living arrangements as sinful and repent of that sin. The decision to live apart until marriage should be a fruit of repentance, not a result of pastoral moralizing.
