The name of the book is "Conversations with God". James Dobson talked about this book twice this week. It is devastating. Parents, churches and Christian schools need to be aware of it. Please pass this information on to church/e-mail addressees, Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins,friends.
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 particular 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, don't judge this 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.'
Here is a quote from the book:
"Author: But those who have taught me all about the rights and wrongs, the dos and don'ts, the shoulds and shouldn'ts, told me all those rules were laid down by You—by God.
God: Then those who taught you were wrong. I have never set down a "right" or "wrong," a "do" or a "don't." To do so would be to strip you completely of your greatest gift—the opportunity to do as you please, and experience the results of that.... To say something—a thought, a word, an action—is "wrong" would be as much as to tell you not to do it.... To prohibit you would be to restrict you. To restrict you would be to deny the reality of Who You Really Are. I do not love "good" more than I love "bad.' Hitler went to Heaven."
Are you kidding me?
In other words, there were no 10 Commendments. No Beatitudes. No parables. According to this secular progressive jerk, God wants us to "do as we please - there is no right or wrong." If this is the nonsense being taught to our children in schools and the liberal media, it is no wonder that kids murder kids in school. They are taught there is no sin. They can do what they want - lie, cheat, steal, kill, rape....no boundaries accoring to Neale Walsch, the liberal author of this tripe. And Scholastic Book Club and our schools are promoting this garbage.
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 guard against their exposure to worldly mediums, because the devil is the Great Deceiver, and 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.
The left wing of our society is intent, by any means, to indoctrinate our children to their beliefs so that they may take over our society and finally have the lifestyle they adore - to be able to do whatever feels good, without guilt or repercussion. Liberals do not want to have to turn from temptation. They do not want to have to control themselves. They want to be completely unfettered, in a world where there is no "right and wrong", or any moral fabric to act as a barrier to their "fun". In liberal Vermont they sey child molesters free, to molest again. In Massachusetts it's the Man-Boy Love Association. In CT and CA it's gay marriage. And in every liberal stronghold, they are doing away with Christmas, Easter and trying to eliminate Christianity altogether. They use the schools to introduce kindergarteners to sex and the gay lifestyle, and in CA some 1st Graders were brought to City Hall to participate in their teacher's lesbian wedding. Here in Maine, they now provide condoms to 11 year olds in school, without consent of the parents.
Make no mistake about it - there is a concerted effort to turn our society into a more permissive and chaotic society of anarchy, where anything goes and people no longer need to worry about temptation because everything will be acceptable. Sound familiar? Reminds one of Sodom & Gomorrah.
We should consider boycotting the Scholastic Book Club, since they take pride in reviewing books they offer. So, they must have been aware that these books use deceptive titles to worm their way into Christian homes. We can no longer trust Scholastic Book Club to look out for the interests of our children.
Pass this on to every Believer you know. God bless! And, if you are in doubt, check out the books yourself.
