Behind The Scenes of The Scarlet Virgins

The Scarlet Virgins Book Review at Iron Ladies

“We have to be willing to call out teaching that puts words in God’s mouth in order to get a certain result, no matter how innocent it seems or how desirable the result may be. The Scarlet Virgins graciously yet honestly reveals the fruit of sexual legalism, and shows us exactly what is ‘so bad’ about Purity Culture.”

What’s So Bad About The “Purity Culture”?

My Debut Article For The Federalist

I am happy to reveal that I am now published on The Federalist! This has been a very big deal for me, probably the biggest honor I’ve received apart from being published on the largest Christian blog on the web.

I am so happy to be able to represent Christians like myself who value purity and Christianity after living in legalism. Please help me share!

For those of you who knew about this huge honor beforehand and kept quiet, thank you!

Purity Culture Isn’t Wrong For Loving Chastity, But For Weaponizing It

Rebecca Lemke: Purity, Legalism, and Finding Grace

I was interviewed on Halfway There Podcast, here are the details of the interview.
 
“Stories Rebecca shared:
 
How Purity Culture came about
 
The Lutheran church she grew up in and how it shaped her faith including her confirmation
 
How isolation and spiritual darkness almost led her to suicide
 
Her pastor’s surprising response to the deep questions she was asking
 
The first time she liked a boy, a love note, and her first exposure to purity culture
 
Appropriate use of the Bible in forming theological opinions
 
How her husband shared some good exegesis that began to change her mind
 
The pastor who invested in her and change her worldview”

Men and Purity Culture

The Scarlet Virgins“Men can’t be sexually assaulted,” “men are emotionless,” “men are inherently bad because they are sexual,” etc. These are all things Rebecca learned about men through purity culture.

In this episode, she addresses these assumptions and calls out purity culture’s failed promises by pointing out how the side effects of the movement are not unlike the ramifications of a pornography addiction.

Modesty, Makeup, Jewelry, and more

The Scarlet Virgins

Is it okay to cut your hair, wear makeup, wear spaghetti straps, and get your ears pierced? It depends on who you ask!

As a child, Rebecca had many friends who were not allowed or afforded even the most basic of grooming and cosmetic choices. In this episode, she discusses coming out of this unique part of modesty and purity culture and the things that have helped her in this journey.

A Scarlet Virgins Book Review

“Lemke’s book is one big on grace and forgiveness, and yet there’s no real hostility towards the Purity Culture movement. She understands these people mean well, and she applauds that. One can think of zeal but not in accordance with knowledge.” Book Plunge: The Scarlet Virgins
