Sure these books are controversial...but so was Jesus

I have been studying these books alongside of the Bible ever since I started reading them. Honestly, a part of me wanted to disprove them. But as I got deeper into the Word and compared them side-by-side, I realized it could not be done.

I have been studying these books alongside of the Bible ever since I started reading them. Honestly, a part of me wanted to disprove them. But as I got deeper into the Word and compared them side-by-side, I realized it could not be done.

The main message of Conversations with God is that "We are all One" - meaning one Spirit. In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prays to the Father, "I pray...that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us...May they be brought to complete unity..." (John 17: 21-23, NIV).

To name a few more examples:

- "Remain in me, and I will remain in you" (John 15:4)
- "On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you" (John 14:20)
- "Do to others what you would have them do to you" (Luke 6:29-31)

Humans have been asking how to have "world peace" and to solve "world hunger" and to "prevent war" for centuries. I tell you the truth; these books have the answers! They answer them just as Jesus did 2000 years ago. Jesus understood these truths and came here to teach them to us.

Why can't God be the One speaking in these books? Do you think that God only inspired people in biblical times and decided that was enough to answer everyone's questions for all eternity? Think about when Jesus came to the earth. He was from God, and spoke God's words - but consider how difficult it would have been to believe him back then. Indeed, it was difficult for many people! He was crucified because of their disbelief!

The same is true today. Anytime something new and different and seemingly crazy comes along, we dismiss it and even go as far as to say it's "from the devil." What if everyone had dismissed Jesus?? You have to wonder - if this really is God, and you don't believe it, what are you saying about Him?

I was a Christian for a long time. As you can imagine, it has been difficult sharing my renewed beliefs to my Christian friends. They wonder what I did "wrong" and how I allowed the devil to capture me. My own sister has shown judgment against me because of it. Do you believe God would really inspire a religion that TEACHES how to be judgmental and to know nothing else? If you have ever felt true judgment, you can easily say that an all-loving God would never make you feel that way.

The God in these books IS ALL-LOVING, He is non-judgemental, He is patient, and by the way, He does not give anything but loving advice! I know because I have put a lot of His words into practice, and it has changed my life and the lives of many around me.


The most important message you could receive from this review is this:

If you read these books and decide to believe God is speaking, you have strengthened your faith.

If you read these books and decide to believe God is not speaking, you have strengthened your faith.

THEY WILL LEAD YOU TO YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING EITHER WAY. Therefore, do not condemn them; thank God for leading you to them.

A Problem

There's one big problem in Complete Conversations with God. The way Neale Donald Walsch tells it, his version of God trumps what everybody else has thought for centuries. Sorry. I'll stick with the real thing--the Bible.

    If you are looking for excuses, then have at it

    This book or series of books simply provides people some feel good excuses for doing whatever they want to do.....sadly reflective of the times we are living in where the majority of people are seeking to do whatever they want with blatant disregard for seeking God's truth.

    Not what we expected

    Purchased this for my husband. It wasn't what he expected. he found himself questioning things that are said in the book, which go against what he believes in the Bible. After the first couple chapters, he decided not to finish reading it. He didn't feel right about a lot of things written in here. Don't let the title of this book deceive you.
