“Conversations with [a] God” by Berit Kjos:
The quotes below reflect the mystical teachings of the “New Thought Movement.”1 Each is part of a dialogue between author Neale Donald Walsch and a spiritual entity (spirit guide) that calls itself “God.” The result is a seductive occult message spoken with divine authority.

Apparently, millions of people believe these twisted messages came from God. That’s not surprising, since Walsch’s books have been listed on the New York Times bestsellers list more than120 weeks. Nor should we expect to be immune to the timeless pattern of deception that caused the decay of ancient Israel. The prophet Jeremiah could well be speaking to us today:

“Hear now, Hananiah, the LORD has not sent you, but you make this people trust in a lie. . . . you have taught rebellion against the LORD.” (Jeremiah 28:14-15)

Because these books touch so many lives, and because their message reflects the global and spiritual philosophy of many educators and politicians in this country, we need to discern the source, understand the deception, and heed God’s guidelines:

“As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.” (Colossians 2:6-8)

Viewing the conversations between Walsch and his god from a Christian perspective, I believe that he received the politically correct answers through a blend of two increasingly popular occult practices: channeling and automatic writing. As he explains in Book 2,

“On a blank sheet of paper, I would merely write a question. . . and no sooner was the question written than the answer would form in my head, as if Someone were whispering in my ear. I was taking dictation!”

This “Someone” is acknowledged at the beginning of the book as “That Which Is All Things, and which is the source of all things, including this book.” Click here to read this entire article.

“Conversations with God” the movie will start showing in theaters on October 27th.
