    (Gaithersburg, Maryland-AP) -- Christian author and pastor
    Joshua Harris says lust is a lie that robs people of their
    ability to enjoy the pleasure that God meant for partners in
    marriage.
    The author of "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" and "Boy Meets
    Girl" has written a new book titled "Not Even a Hint: Guarding
    Your Heart Against Lust."
    He cites C.S. Lewis's illustration of lust as a lying
    lizard that teases and gnaws at a ghostly man -- until that man
    lets God kill the lust. Only then is the lizard transformed into
    a stallion of fulfilled desire in a man who's become real.
    The 29-year-old Harris says purity is strength -- and leads
    to the joy of giving love in a committed relationship instead of
    the emptiness of taking momentary pleasures.
    Joshua Harris is executive pastor of the
    three-thousand-member Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg,
    Maryland.
