Overview

The clearer we see God, the clearer we shall see ourselves. With this conviction firmly in mind, Dr. Erwin Lutzer examines ten lies about our Maker that have crept into spiritual thought in postmodern times. And he notes that these deceits are prominent not only in non-Christian minds but in the professing church as well.

On the surface, each of these lies may appear at least partially true or even harmless. But, as Dr. Lutzer reveals, each harbors a distinct danger: It isn't biblical, so it puts our faith at risk. In Ten Lies About God he challenges the accuracy of these beliefs:

Lie 1: God is whatever we want him to be.

Lie 2: Many paths lead into God's presence.

Lie 3: God is more tolerant than He used to be.

Lie 4: God has personally never suffered.

Lie 5: God is obligated to save followers of other religions.

Lie 6: God takes no responsibility for natural disasters.

Lie 7: God does not know our decisions before we make them.

Lie 8: The Fall ruined God's plan.

Lie 9: We must choose between God's pleasures and our own.

Lie 10: God helps those who help themselves.

The goal of Dr. Lutzer's study is not only purity of spiritual belief, but an enhanced worship of God.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

What Others Are Saying:

"Many people today, inside and outside Christianity, are deceived in their beliefs about God and spiritual truth. If you don't believe me, just read this book. Dr. Lutzer clearly exposes the lies so many believe to be the 'gospel truth.'"

Dr. John F. Ankerberg, The John Ankerberg Show

"This is one of those books that seems to be charged with a strange electricity. The reader can't get through the author's preface without feeling a compulsion to discover the impact of the first chapter-and from there on to the tenth of the 'lies about God.' And his epilogue is as passionate an appeal to trust God as I have seen. Excellent reading for Christians as well as nonbelievers."

D. James Kennedy, Ph.D., Senior Minister, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
