To Lighthouse Trails:
I just received my “Another Jesus” Calling order. Already started reading, and it seems absurd that believers would be duped into believing and spending precious time in such a book as Jesus Calling.
Before I closed [my store] and retired, I had MANY requests for Jesus Calling, and from the start, I was hesitant because of my customer’s overwhelming awe over the book. Finally, I looked into it and realized why I was “hesitant.” (The same goes for The Shack, One Thousand Gifts, and more. I could have retired in riches had I carried and sold these!!!). All of the above books are incredibly appealing to all ages, yes even the older generation and are incredibly dangerous. The endorsements by the readers of these books is like a fire out of control.
When I had the store I would ask a customer if I could help. “No, I’m just killing time!” We cannot afford to “kill time.” Reading books that are in error is killing time! The hour is late, and our time must be well spent! We must be as the Berean’s, searching the Scriptures to find out if these things are so, spending our time well.
