There are two kinds of spirituality in the world. One is wrong and one is right. One is false and one is true. This book examines seven of the most common spiritual traditions and how these man-made traditions use speculation, mysticism, and moralism to break Christianity. These seven Christian rules that every Christian ought to break are taught as if they were doctrine, but are nothing more than the traditions of men.

About the Author
Fisk shows how, under the cross of Jesus, you will find that your mind, heart, and hands, your reason, emotions, and sense of mercy, are the very things that our Lord has redeemed. In the resurrection of Jesus, in His fulfillment of the Law, in the essence of His Gospel, in the pure Word of God, you will find the truth.

Whatup: Punk Rock John and the Enslaving Ex-Christianity of Death 9
Never #1 Never follow a rule that follows your liver, your heart, your pancreas, or any other bodily organ that could conceivably have its mind changed by the shifting of the wind 23
Never #2 Never follow a rule that wasn't written in stone a very, very long time ago (doubly so if the grass is only greener on the other side because it's made of plastic) 51
Never #3 Never follow a rule just because it makes sense (especially if it promises to work because it makes sense [and especially, especially if it either contains the words "spirit-led" or can be entirely explained by a petri dish full of midi-chlorians]) 77
Never #4 Never follow a rule because it benefits you now (and if it mentions "abundance," run screaming from the room) 109

Truth is hard to come by these days. Truth so clearly explained- even less so. This book fulfills that need. If you think you know what it means to be "Christian"- think again. The culture has had such an all encompassing effect on the Church, when really the opposite should be true. This is an excellent book which will show you WHY most everything your Mega-Church is telling (selling) you is wrong.
Rev Fisk re-scripts history as a drama played out by 7 personified heresies. His most empassioned assault is on Mysticism which he incorreclty reduces to emotionalism conflating it with the Romantic movement (incorrectly including Mozart). Actually his knowledge of history, culture and theology rapidly diminishes in direct proportion to their distance from Star Wars.
