The whole premise of the book is that you are a terrible person. And I don't care who YOU are - it covers that. You, no matter who - are such a Colossal screwup - that it would be a literal MIRACLE if anyone ever forgave you.
You see. God. Hates. Sin. And YOU are a sinner. And while the book doesn't come right out and say that GOD HATES YOU. Well, he hates pretty much everything you've done and think about. So....
It might seem confusing, but I will walk you through it. God made you, in his image - but that image contains a disgusting, lazy, lying, gossiping, whore-mongering, faithless, useless sack of crap who loves Satan and "logic" more than you love Jesus Christ.
And your goal is to take out all that yucky that god created you with so that you can be exactly like god. Yes, the book talks extensively about attaining godhood. That's the ultimate goal for human beings - is to become like god.
"The natural man is an enemy of god," is a Mormon scripture that is quoted occasionally in the book. It is your job overcome that "naturalness" in order to become Super-Natural as god is. And unfortunately for us mortals, sex is the most natural thing we can do. Unless, of course, it's homosexual sex which is a "sin against nature." God, hates the natural man and the homosexual even though you'd think he'd appreciate the "unnaturalness" of it. But that would be you using your "crafty logic" you sinner. Trust me. Sex is exactly like Karate.Read more ›
The title of this book is "The Miracle of Forgiveness". That alone should tell you some of the topics the book is to cover: sin, repentance, and finally, forgiveness through Christ and His Atonement.
Yes, this book spends a lot of time discussing sin and the various ways in which one may commit sin (although the discussion is by no means exhaustive). Much of it comes from the author's experience of many years as an ecclesiastical leader. Will this discussion make you feel guilty? Probably. It should. One of the aims of the book is to urge the reader to improve him or herself. Keep in mind, guilt isn't a bad thing. If you don't feel guilty about something you're not likely to change it. Will this discussion offend you? Possibly. If you're the sort that doesn't like to hear that what you're doing is wrong, then yes, you'll find parts of the book to be a hard read.
The author of the book is LDS. As such, there is an LDS focus to the writing, but honest-hearted, non-LDS believers in Christ will also find the book to be of value. While there is extensive quoting of LDS scripture in addition to the Bible, and LDS-related experiences, the bottom line is universal to believers in Christ: sin (any sin) makes us unworthy to return to Heaven, and it is the miracle of Christ's Atonement that enables us to become clean and return.
Read this book with a humble heart, and a desire to learn and improve yourself, and you'll discover many ways in which you need to improve yourself. You'll also have a better understanding of and appreciation for the Lord Jesus and what He has done for you.Read more ›
