Time for another Blog Review-10 Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe

I am just about done with this book and I'm pretty impressed. Written by Larry Osborne, this book addresses 10 of the most common beliefs Christians hold but aren't scripturally based. And let me tell you...some of them very much stepped on my toes. Things that I was taught since I was very young, but to my surprise are not found in scriptures anywhere! A few common misconceptions:

• Faith can fix anything
• Christians shouldn’t judge
• Forgiving means forgetting
• Everything happens for a reason
• A godly home guarantees good kids

You'll need to read this book with an open mind because I almost put it down because questioning our deeply entrenched beliefs is a hard thing to do. But I assure you, it will be well worth the read. The chapters are not long and you can read them in any order you choose.

Just Because “Everyone Believes It” Doesn’t Make It True

People don’t set out to build their faith upon myths and spiritual urban legends. But somehow such falsehoods keep showing up in the way that many Christians think about life and God. These goofy ideas and beliefs are assumed by millions to be rock-solid truth . . . until life proves they’re not. The sad result is often a spiritual disaster—confusion, feelings of betrayal, a distrust of Scripture, loss of faith, anger toward both the church and God.
But it doesn’t have to be so. In this delightfully personal and practical book, respected Bible teacher Larry Osborne confronts ten widely held beliefs that are both dumb and dangerous.

If you are interested in this very FABULOUS book, I have 2 to give away! If you want to enter into the drawing, leave me a comment here or email me at Sandras_junk@charter.net and let me know.
