I say mysterious because for all these years I have also struggled with the conflict between the teachings in this book and teachings from the pulpit. Some aspects of this book go beyond "controversial" and approach "heretical". Read some of the comments in reviews below. But yet, I knew that it was, indeed, correct. I just did not understand how.
My purpose in writing this is that after all this time, God finally gave me understanding in a wonderful way - through 2 different sermons given in two different -unrelated- churches on the same day. They said, essentially, the same thing and directly addressed my long-standing concerns about the theology of this book.
One paster was from Pass Christian, Louisiana, and related how Katrina is re-shaping his world, up to and including opening doors for him to directly minister to the families of the Amish school shooting victims up here in our area.
Praise God for sin and for the works of Satan? Never! That is anathema to us.
Well, carefully consider this. Do we ever thank God for the crucifixion of his Son? Think about it.
From the standpoint of His disciples back then, there could be no clearer act of sin and Satan, yet we praise God for it.
This has been burning in my heart for a week now, so I went to Amazon to order a bunch of these books to give as gifts to my children and close friends, along with a cover letter that will be similar to this (my first) review here at Amazon to help them over the hump that held me for over 20 years. Read this book. It holds a foundational truth for our Christian walk.
So when Ron says,"But it is senseless to praise Him FOR sin or evil. God hates sin and evil, and the Bible is full of clear teaching about it," he is correct that God hates sin and evil, but we do NOT praise Him for sin and evil; we praise him for his wonderful plan fro us to work straight through that evil and fill us with everlasting love. I highly HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book. So listen my brothers and sisters, if you want the true meaning to this life-changing book, pray and trust in the Lord!
The first Book that the LORD placed in my hand was POWER in Praise ,by Merlin Carothersin 1997. This was the begining of a new path in my life.
Then as planned by THE LORD , in 1998 ,someone happened to get PRISON to PRAISE by Merlin Carothers, to give to someone else,but incidently it happened to come into my hands.
This book was the cause that the LORD used to bring me on my knees and i got saved before i was done reading this book. My whole life got changed inside out.
The CROSS and the SHED BLOOD OF JESUS BECAME VERY REAL TO ME FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE,I ACCEPTED THE LORD JESUS AS MY LORD AND SAVIOUR THAT DAY,IN MY BEDROOM,ON MY KNEES WITH TEARS OF REPENTANCE OVER MY SINFUL LIFE AND MY ENEMITY AGAINST GOD WHO ONLY LOVED ME AT ALL TIMES.THOUGH IWAS THE LORD'S ENEMY ,HE DEMONSTRATED HIS LOVE IN A WAY I COULD UNDERSTAND AND SAVED ME..
I then had a deep desire and thirst for the Word of God and started reading the Bible . It was like some scales which had blinded my eyes had fallen off, now I could see . The Word of GOD would pop right out of the pages and would speak to me. So it was so wonderful!!
I CANNOT THANK THE LORD ENOUGH AND i realise Mr. Merlin's reward is in the eternal places on that day.. when everything will be so clear to everyone.
MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU AND THE WORK OF YOUR HANDS MORE ABUNDANTLY,THRU HIS SPIRIT WHO WORKS IN YOU AND THRU YOU!!!
I know one thing, The LORD used Mr. Merlin to get to my heart, mind, understanding and spirit through the HOLY SPIRIT of God, and has given me eternal life with The LORD Jesus for life without end.
