    (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
    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,
