A book that opens the eyes and tells the honest truth!,
This review is from: Mind Siege: The Battle for Truth in the New Millennium (Hardcover)
In this day and age far too many people call themselves Christians, they go to church, they sing their hymns, they put money into the offering plates. They may go to the Sunday school classes, they may shake hands, they may even say "I strive to live the Sermon on the Mount".
Yet how many Christians it seems truly knows what Christianity is up against in this day and age? How many Christian fathers and mothers know about the secularism being taught in schools, about the political correct Nazis spout out by groups like NOW and people like Al Gore, about teachers telling our kids its all right to do this or that "because we're all just evolved animals anyway."
Tim LaHaye, like Josh McDowell and several others, has hit the nail on the head with this book. In section by section, he takes on full force the problems facing the decline in American values. So many liberals have tried to take Christianity out of the Founding Fathers, so many liberals have tried to say it's ok to kill babies by calling it "a woman's choice to have an abortion" (since...again, we're all just "evolved animals"). So many have tried to make the guilty free and the innocent blamed/or forgotten in our court systems (O.J. Simpson comes to mind).
It's got to stop.
As this book shows, when we enter into our jobs and our kids enter the schools, it's not just another day, it's another spiritual skirmish between God and Satan. As an educator myself, I have seen the PC groups and humanism in action. It's ok to teach Hinduism and paganism in the classrooms, it's all right to give our children condoms (when we really should be giving them common sense), but these "tolerant hounds" have a hiss attack if one tries to bring moral values into the school buildings, office buildings, and courts.
Of course, this book is Not about several things. This book is Not about hurting groups such as homosexuals. This book is Not about bombing abortion clinics. This book is Not about forcing people to become Christian. Such things were Never taught in the Bible, though sadly some people have made their own doctrines of evil under the title of Christianity--and even worse, the liberal media has clumped truth loving Christians with violent monglers and false prophets.
Thankfully, Tim LaHaye puts the proof on the table for Christianity for all to see, in this book. With fearlessness and love toward all sinners, the Bible truths are spoken.
Tim LaHaye's book should be read with a complete understanding that Christianity is not just a "feeling good about oneself on Sunday" idea...it's standing up with a total and honest conviction that the Bible is indeed right and that the world and the world's prince is wrong. The Christian community should of course always love the sinner and hate the sin, but should also be willing to speak out about what the Bible specifically says is right and wrong... that is what Tim LaHaye does with this book. He takes the sword of truth and successfully combats the lies of humanism, secularism, evolution, and paganism. He also invites every firm Christian believer to do the same, to help bring people out of the darkness and into the grace giving light of Christ...the Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing but the Truth.
I would also suggest the wonderful books by Dr. James Kennedy such as "Why I Believe" and "What if Jesus had Never Been Born".
