DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER

Schools are distributing this book to
> children through the Scholastic Book Club.

BEWARE OF THESE BOOKS

>
> Two particular books are Conversations with God and
> Conversations with God for Teens, written by Neale D.
> Walsch.
They sound harmless enough by their titles alone.
> The books have been on the New York Times best sellers list
> for a number of weeks.
>
> The author purports to answer various questions asked by
> kids using the 'vo ice of God'. However,
> the 'answers' that he gives are not Bible-based and
> go against the very infallible word of God. For instance
> (and I paraphrase), when a girl asks the question 'Why
> am I a lesbian?' His answer is that she was 'born
> that way' because of genetics (just as you were born
> right-handed, with brown eyes, etc.). Then he tells her to
> go out and 'celebrate' her differences.
>
> Another girls poses the question: 'I am living with my
> boyfriend. My parents say that I should marry him because
> I am living in sin. Should I marry him?'
>
> His reply is, 'Who are you sinning against? Not me,
> because you have done nothing wrong.'
>
> Another question asks about God's forgiveness of sin.
> His reply 'I do not forgive anyone because there
> is nothing to forgive. There is no such thing as right or
> wrong and that is what I have been trying to tell everyone,
> do not judge people. People have chosen to judge one another
> and this is wrong, because the rule is ''judge not
> lest ye be judged.' Not only are these books the false
> doctrine of the devil, but in some instances quote (in
> error) the Word of God.

It is disturbing that someone can print christian based books that are against God's word. And then to have them directed at Children? It really bothers me. Thanks for sharing.

I wrote a letter to the author of these books last month telling him of my disgust with these books! His response was less than nice to me:)
