When was the last time a Christian hurt you?
The demonic trio of slander, gossip, and offense has gained huge momentum both in our society and in the church. They ruin marriages, relationships, destroy churches, and discredit those in spiritual leadership. Even worse, instead of fighting them, believers daily aid these spirits. And daily, other believers fall victim. The church's main problem today is a lack of love, forgiveness, and unity.
Satan's favorite lie is that spiritual attacks always come from outside—that Christians can't hurt each other. But when Pastor Kynan Bridges rips the mask off of the accuser, the truth is revealed: Satan's spirits of slander, gossip, and offense are determined to tear the kingdom apart, and they use believers to do it—leading to bitterness and spiritual disease.
With a careful study of the Word of God, Pastor Kynan shows a way out. In this book, you will learn how to:
- Recognize the devastation of slander
- Identify the satanic nature of gossip
- Avoid the temptation to be hurt and offended
- Release those who have wounded you
- Use love and forgiveness as a powerful weapon to walk in victory over the enemy, the accuser of the brethren.

Having just completed reading "Unmasking The Accuser," all I can say is BRAVO. This divinely inspired book will not only inspire you, but will also convict every believer to say goodbye to corrupt communication and old patterns of thinking rooted in offense. This book challenged me to strip myself of being so quick to fall back into cycles of hurt, which were all too familiar to me. As I read this book, I couldn't help but be reminded that we bring sorrow to the Holy Spirit by the way we live and the things we say to one another. We are in a time in which wounding each other with our tongues has become second nature to many of us, leaving us as a generation of bleeding and offended people, who in turn hurt other people. Apostle Bridges so eloquently warns us about the effects slander, offense, bitterness, anger, harsh words, and bad attitudes toward others, etc. Without condemning, this book details why we should be forgiving, just as God has forgiven us. God wants us to live peaceable and in harmony with one another, not at war. God is interested in the restoration of His People and I believe He is going to use this book to to facilitate healing of unresolved bitterness in His Church. The Church needs healing and I believe Unmasking The Accuser will be the agent of change that God will use to usher in restoration and reconciliation. This book is a must read for every believer interested in becoming the new creation The Bible speaks of in 2 Corinthian 5:17. Just as God acted in love by sending His Son to die for us, so, too, must we act in love toward our brothers and sisters in Christ. Unmasking The Accuser will help us to renew our minds...if we let it.
AGENDA, MOTIVES, IDENTITY, TRUTH…. Who ARE our words, our hearts, and our thoughts truly working for?

This work brings you a true understanding of the power we possess in our words.

We have been working for him bound and entangled in gossip, slander and offence. Now it is time to be free. This book teaches us how to guard ourselves from offense through self-examination, and everyday application. The testimonials and prayers within each chapter allow healing to overtake you and transform you right where you read. This book will transform the lives of all who read and apply its teachings.

This book Unmasking the Accuser is really an eye opening for me. Every time I read a chapter I was repenting and decreeing. I will have to be more accountable with my conversations. This book exposes the schemes of the enemy; slander, gossip, and offense. There is power in your tongue. That's why it is very important to think first before you speak. I have been offended and got hurt through gossip and it's ugly. This book teaches you how to fight the lies of the enemy and to walk in your victory. I love that at the end of the chapter there are prayer, testimony and discussion. I recommend this book to everyone. This book is so good you don't want to miss it!!!
I believe that EVERY person should read this book. This book deals with the effects of gossip, slander, and offense. It doesn't just deal with the surface layer but addresses a lot of unspoken issues. I know pretty much everyone would say that they don't gossip, slander or cause offense. And if you are like me and think you don't think you need this, then you are the very person that needs to read this book. This book has challenged me to take ownership for my actions. It pointed out the subtle ways that we can be involved in gossip, slander, and offense. There are a lot of things we do and see as innocent. Prior to reading this book, I did not think anything was wrong with how I dealt with people and addressed situations, as a matter of fact, I was perfect. (SMILE) However, this book exposed how the devil uses so many people (yes, Christians included) to advance is agenda. Do you advance his agenda? I was and didn't even realize that I took his bait. This book challenged me to change so that my actions so that I can begin to foster healing and not hurt. I challenge you to read the book. Get you friends and family and read it together. Let's change how we deal with others.
Powerful! Insightful Truth! This book is a Must Read for all Christians. All of Apostle Kynan T. Bridges books that I have read are awesome and anointed. Father God has surely blessed him with a mouthpiece of such wisdom and utterance and wise counsel that the enemy cannot refute or gain say. He walks in consistent progressive revelation knowledge and the mani-fold wisdom of God. His latest book "Unmasking The Accuser" released last month (February 2017) is a must have in your arsenal of artillery weapons. It is absolutely life changing, revolutionary and transformational.This book has already reached and has supernaturally impacted the lives of over 1.3 million people. Because of the weight of the glory and anointing on this book. You will have a hard time putting it down. The revelation knowledge, comprehension, understanding and insight that Apostle Kynan Bridges shares regarding the demonic trio (Slander, Gossip, and Offense). It is eye opening. He also shares some powerful personal testimonies in this book as well. You may have read several books on Slander, Gossip, and Offense. But I can guarantee you that this book is a cut above the rest and you will learn some spiritual insights, truths and fresh revelation that you have never heard of before. This book will cause your spiritual eyes of your understanding to be opened to see the truth about some things that you never seen or undeestood before about Slander, Gossip, Offense, Ridicule and Persecution etc. Life and death is in the power of the tongue and Satan is the Accuser of the Brethren. He is a liar! And he loves to Kill, Steal and Destroy. He is a Murderer and a spiritual Assassin. And he also loves to Slander, Persecute and Ridicule. Some will come to realize as they read this book. That they have been used by the enemy to carry out his will, his plans, and his purposes without realizing it. And they will learn that they have been a pawn in his hands through offense, unforgiveness, bitterness. Because most people who are offended, bitter and walking in unforgiveness. Have a tendency to Slander, Persecute, Ridicule and Gossip. So they start acting and behaving like the devil himself. Doing what he does killing, stealing, destroying and murdering people (their reputation and character and possibly doors of opportunity and their destiny) through the words of their mouth. So they become spiritual assassins, serial killers and mass murderers without realizing it. And maybe you aren't walking around in unforgiveness, bitterness or anger.

You will not regret this purchase. It will be one of the greatest and most important investments you made in your life. God bless you! and Kingdom Blessings! Jackie Lynn Okpara
SPIRITUAL REDEMPTION RESTORATION &RELIEF I had the pleasure of reading this book prior to the release,Jesus!!! From the moment I started reading the book I knew there was a lot of information in this book to the maximum capacity I still do not know in fullness i can smelting absolutely tell every reader this isn't just a novel or a spiritual book written by a man of God. This book is a map to ANYBODY but especially for believers and Christians that are in leadership. This book can be used to teach curriculum on spiritual warfar. If there is a guide or how to gird up and prepare for warfare how to walk Christ like. There is no reason for anyone to live as a back slider this book teaches, Humility, Perseverance,LOVE and FORGIVENESS. you will definitely have a different perspective on small gossip,slander and offense. When Dr. Kynan exposed these lies of the enemy anyone who reads this book will definitely be forever changed. As I myself have already been able to break yokes and walk in love and forgiveness and knowing who the real fought is against. This book should send back sliders running back to fellowship and worship with other believers.with a light heart taking no offense and being very careful not to offend and apologetic if offense is taken accidently
Aside from the Bible itself, Unmasking the Accuser has got to be the single most influential book available to Christian's today. This book is entertaining and intriguing, but it's practical, too! The author does an incredible job of illustrating how it was slander and gossip that led Adam and Eve to sin in the garden. Not only does this book show to how to be aware of slander, gossip, and offense, but Kynan Bridges has an excellent way of teaching you how to stand up against Accuser of the brethren. I never realized how vital it was to restain my tongue and how "break room banters" were more like spiritual "words of war." With each chapter, I found myself more and more identifying with the anecdotes he shares and came to realize what a vile poison slander and gossip really are. Page by page, I found that the book got better and better, so I got a copy for my wife and a copy for a family member! This is a book everyone NEEDS to read! Not only is it easy to read, but the stories in it are very relatable, and the discussion questions and prophetic prayers at the end of each chapter set you free in so many areas of your life! If you have a friend or a family member, you two should read it together, chapter by chapter, and discuss how the subject has opened your eyes to how you conduct yourself, and the behavior you observe around you. This book has already had an undeniable impact on my marriage and has improved our communication towards each other, and everyone around us. You should read this book to see just how that crafty serpent is still trying to spoil the fruits in your garden...

This is one of those books where it is very difficult to write a simple review and make it meaningful and influential to others. Words are just not enough to suggest, persuade, or to simply tell anyone person how life-changing this book is. It’s for everyone. Everyone so desperately needs this book in their library to refer back to over and again. This book will help you to live a life of freedom and healing from the wounds you may have caused in the lives of others or vice versus. For so many years, I walked under the shadow and shame of being hurt at the hands of others who I looked up and some maybe not so much but there were and are individuals I sincerely cared for and loved. Realizing I first had to admit that I walked under the spirit of offense and needed to deal with me and that I shouldn’t take the attacks personally, reading through the pages of “Unmasking the Accuser” I have literally found the courage to begin the healing process and drop some of the dead weight I have been holding on to as my security blanket. The examples and testimonies given throughout the book, made me realize that I am not alone and this is a spiritual war we’re fighting against when it comes to our mouths. That’s one part of the book. The other major component is watching what I say and including myself in conversations about others with a listening ear. I realized that I am just as guilty of slander if all I did was listen. Also, how contamination from people who thrive off of gossip and slander is so vital in my walk to pursue Jesus Christ. I now find myself shying away from wayward conversations (and people) who have no real motive in their words. I realize how dangerous being led by my feelings and emotions can be. I so want my heart and my hands to be clean. I live in an area in the United States where gossip is so common and our society thrives off of gossip. You turn on the television or browse the Internet, gossip is all over our media outlets. I now have a stronger sense of what’s coming out of my mouth before I am pulled into a conversation. Also, I more careful with my words and pause before I respond. All in all, if you’re reading my review…YOU HAVE TO HAVE THIS BOOK IN YOUR LIFE! It’s not about Dr. Bridges, but the devil who is destroying society through words.
