Denying The glory of Christ while exalting the pride and desires of .man
on January 7, 2013
The modern view of Jesus nowadays is that He has come to be apart of our agenda, bless our comfort zones,personal motivations and help is conquer our dreams. The Jesus of scripture is the God-man who, by saving us, gives us a new heart with desires to be apart of His agenda fulfilling the great commission. Psalms says to delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart, what the psalmist is saying is if youre delighting in the Lord your desires will be in line with the Lords desires. and your desire will even be the Lord, those are the desires He blesses. This book is full of daily man-centered watered down devotionals that don't glorify God, but exalt the fallen and self-centered desires of all men. This book is nothing but a self-help, motivational, prep talk book with a few random bible verses thrown in. I feel as though this book is just an encouragement to the idols we already have, but tries to ease our guilt since we can feed them in the name of Jesus. But of course a book like this gets good reviews because it tells people what they want to hear . It doesn't radically call them to lose their life to gain it like Christ calls.
