Beware of these books!

Everyone, take a good look at this. I received this email and was urged to share it on my blog. This man Neale D Walsch is the author of Conversations with God and Conversations with God for Teens. These titles may be catchy, and may sound totally spiritual, but wait before you purchase these items. Inside the books the words may not seem so spiritual. The devil has his hand on these books, read the article below and please pass it on!

Oprah is pushing this book. (another reason I don't care for her!)

Please pay special attention not only to what your kids watch on TV, in movie theaters, on the Internet, and the music they listen to, but also be alert regarding the books they read.
Two books are, Conversations with God and Conversations with God for Teens, written by Neale D. Walsch. They sound harmless enough by their titles alone. The books have been on the New York Times best sellers list for a number of weeks, and they make truth of the statement, "Don't judge a book by its cover or title."

The author purports to answer various questions asked by kids using the "voice of God". However, the "answers" that he gives are not Bible-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 brown 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."
Not only are these books the false doctrine of the devil, but in some instances quote (in error) the Word of God.

And the list goes on. These books (and others like it) are being sold to schoolchildren through (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 children 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). We know that lions usually hunt for the slowest, weakest and YOUNGEST of its prey.
Pass this on to every Believer you know. God bless! And, if you are in doubt, check out the books yourself.


Scary isn't it? I even went a step further earlier on Amazon and read a few comments from others who have read the book. I'll let you read one review: "Perhaps this book should be better titled Conversations with god (small "g") for Teens as the Holy Jehovah God would not reveal answers to questions in the way it is written here. This book is based on liberal man's interpretation and not what our youth need to hear. They hear that enough from television and society. I would NOT let my teen read this book. It is not Bible based and certainly not of GOD!!!"

It's shocking how man is deceiving the eyes, ears, and hearts of men, women, and children! The way of the ungodly is taking over this world. It's just like the words from the song, 'Slow Fade' "Be careful little eyes what you see, it's the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings. Be careful little ears what you hear, when flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near, be careful little lips what you say, for empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray." Sadly, Christians are falling into the foolishness of this world. Please, pass this on to anyone you know! We need to, as I always say, make way through this world as a light!

Wow! That's bad! It's what the world wants to hear though.

That's awful! Yes, that's exactly what the world wants to hear- that there's nothing wrong with living a life they know is wrong, or else they wouldn't question it. I guess that's why it's a best-seller! But poor searching souls, those who desperately want to know the truth and pick up this book and only get more confused. Thanks for the warning, Vanessa. ~Lisa
