The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From the Tree – “God Calling” Spiritually Influenced Alcoholics Anonymous

An ex-Oxford Group member named Richmond Walker, years later as an A.A. member, compiled prayers and meditations into one little book. Much of it was based on the demonic writings found in God Calling.—John Lanagan

god-callingWarren B. Smith notes that God Calling is “the channeled book  that inspired Sarah Young to try and receive her own personal messages from Jesus.” [1] Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling is an immensely popular book, through which the contemplative “christ” continues to spread.

God Calling can be seen as the spiritual parent of Jesus Calling, but God Calling also greatly influenced Alcoholics Anonymous. This began with the Oxford Group, an ecumenical movement of the 1930s. Both A.A.’s co-founders, Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith, attended O.G. meetings, and Alcoholics Anonymous itself came out of the Oxford Group.

Editor’s Note: Be sure and read John Lanagan’s new Booklet Tract: The “Spiritual” Truth Behind Alcoholics Anonymous—And Why Christians Should Think Twice About Joining A.A.
