Book Review: Conversations with God

Open thread by BettyJean Kling

I found this in my mailbox this morning, I have been on the lookout for our new School Czar’s Porn so I opened it figuring that ‘s what I had here. To the contrary, what I had was a warning about two books that view God from a different point of view. I am agnostic about the title Conversations with God because it purports to be out of God’s mouth but on the other hand the Torah, the Bible, and other books claim also to be inspired (breathed out of the mouth of) God and yet they don’t square with a loving God who says judge not lest ye be judged yet this one clearly does.

So I bring this to you as I always have, with the same spirit I always have, saying the same thing I always have. God gave us free will – who am I to suppress it? I am always suspicious of those who get up in arms and try to suppress that which God gave us. If he allowed he own son to be tempted and trusted him to choose right and made us in his image – then he expects us to be tempted and choose right- or else he would have formed robots.

Organized religions want robots, they pit people against each other, they cause wars and they are abusive to women. They have no regard for many of God’s creatures such as Gays and seek to deny many of the rights God gave all his creatures. I may or I may not read this book because like the others it is written by a human and inspired by their beliefs, I would rather converse directly with God one on one because God not only created me in the image of God and gave me free will but a great open loving heart and a very good brain. I am pretty sure that is why he created individuals instead of robots!

That was my review – I look forward to yours. Below you will find the review sent to me.

Conversations with God ! Poison Book !

Attacking our Children !!!  From the Bottom Level Library in Hell !

Beware of this book!  Oprah is pushing it. It is scary that someone would be bold enough to write a book from God’s point of view contrary to His Word.  Please send to all with kids or grandkids.  

BEWARE!

If you have children or grandchildren, work with children at church, or you have neighborhood children whose parents you know, please take note of the information below and pass it along to others. Schools are distributing this book to children through the Scholastic Book Club.
 
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 addresses, 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, 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.
