CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD
Beware of the book, Conversations with God, Dr. James Dobson talked about
this book twice this week. It is devastating and parents and Christian
schools need to be aware of this. Do pass it on to church/e-mail
addressees. Parents, Grand parents, Aunts, Uncles: Please pay special
attention not only to the what your kids watch on TV, and in movie
theaters, and the music they listen to, but we must also be alert regarding
the books they read... Two particular books, Conversations with God, and
Conversations with God for Teens, written by Neil D. Walsh, sound harmless
enough by their titles alone. These books have been on the New York Times
best sellers, list for a number of weeks these publications makes truth of
the statement,, "Don't judge a book by its cover/title."
The author purports to answer various questions from kids using the "voice
of God". However, the "answers" that he gives are not
biblically-based and go against the very infallible word of God. For
instance (and I paraphrase, when a girl asks the question "why am I a
lesbian?" his answer is that she was born that way because of genetics (just
as you were born right-handed, with blue eyes, etc.). Then he tells her to
go out and "celebrate" her differences.
Another girls poses the question "I am living with my boyfriend. My parents
say that I should marry him because I am living in sin. Should I
marry him?" His reply is "Who are you sinning against? Not me, because you
have done nothing wrong."
Another question asks about God's forgiveness of sin. His reply - I do not
forgive anyone because there is nothing to forgive. There is no
such thing as right or wrong and that is what I have been trying to tell
everyone do not judge people. People have chosen to judge one another and
this is wrong because the rule is "judge not lest ye be judged".
And the list goes on. Not only are these books the false doctrine of devils
but in some instances even quote (in error) the Word of God.
These books (and others like it) are being sold to school children (The
Scholastic Book Club) and we need to be aware of what is being fed to
our children. Our children are under attack so I pray that you be sober and
vigilant about teaching your kids the Word of God and guarding their
exposure to worldly mediums because our adversary, the devil, roams about
as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). And how many of
us know that lions usually hunt for the slowest, and weakest and YOUNGEST
OF ITS PREY.
