I wll give two brief examples, but there are many, many, "logical" points that just don't make sense. Abanes quotes Tolle as saying "His Truth...can only be found by intuition, internal knowing, and emotion". He tries to "prove" that feelings are not a reliable standard by which to measure truth. But churches teach this consistently, often telling of "spiritual sight" and faith that cannot be explained, only felt. Abanes says Tolle makes judgements about what is good, bad, right, or wrong, and quotes from New Earth, (for example, wars, exclusive religious claims, the witch hunts of Europe, materialism, sickness, addiction). So, what is the point? Is Abanes trying to say these things are't bad or wrong, but Tolle is judging them so? Am I incorrect in assuming there are some universal moral wrongs? I don't think Tolle is alone here.
Abanes does just about everything he accuses Tolle of doing in his writing, and left me with a "we Christians are the only worthy truth bearers" feeing.
This book shows a great deal of effort to prove what? Still scrathing my head.
He seems to be so fearful of Tolle's ideas that he can't accurately capture the larger concepts from Tolle's works before he critizices and judges them with the typical "Christian" arguments. This is a big disappointment. It amazes me that Abanes must think he might teach me something by criticizing Tolle's work instead of generating convincing arguments.
I struggled reading this book because it was written with such a narrow focused point of view. It makes Abanes "god" seem so small, petty and judgmental. If Tolle's work does anything it has vastly expanded my view of an omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient God...Abanes work not so much.
It is interesting to read Abanes' book to see how an obviously articulate and intelligent man can be so brain washed into thinking 'my way or the highway.'
We should find ways to promote Jesus' message of love without promoting the associated 2000 years worth of self righteousness.
Tolle says that "every belief is an obstacle". The author claims this is a belief about beliefs. But here is the problem. The definition of the word belief is; an acceptance that a statement is true or that something exists.
Tolle never asks you to accept anything.
