By    |   Monday, 01 Jun 2015 10:20 AM

Christian writer Rachel Held Evans has penned several books and countless blog entries on faith, life, and, of course, love.

Evans' views on love, and who should be allowed to love one another without being condemned, have often put her at odds with other Christian writers and religious figure heads whose opinions are far more conservative than her own.

Regardless of one’s political or moral views on marriage, these statements on love from Evans are sure to ring true in everyone’s heart:

1. “I’m often asked about how to preserve important relationships in the midst of doubt and change. (In fact I’m thinking of making this a theme in the next book.) There is much that could be said about this, of course, and I've learned much of what I've learned from making mistakes, but I think the most important thing is this: Invest in love. Risk in love. Because as the apostle Paul put it, ‘Three things will last forever — faith, hope, and love — and the greatest of these is love.’ Beliefs will change, political and theological convictions will alter, even faith and hope will falter. But ‘love never fails.’” (Source: Rachel Held Evans’ blog)

2. “Healing is more about relationships and being connected and being loved, about compassion and about walking with someone down a difficult road, wherever it leads. Whether that's to a cure, to health and to reconciliation, or whether that's to death. In many churches people are anointed on their deathbed – it's not about fixing a problem necessarily, it's about commissioning on the next step of their journey.” (Source: Christian Today)

3. “Marriage is sacramental when it is characterized by mutual love and submission.” (source: Evans’ book “Searching For Sunday”)

4.
“Growing your roots is so much more important than growing your ‘brand.’ Nurturing your relationships is so much more important than increasing your ‘following.’” (source: Evans’ Facebook page)
