Do you consider yourself a Christian? Do you believe that God is loving and kind, and only wants good things for His children? If so, are you perplexed by the condition of the world these days? According to the website “Christianity Today”, Christianity is currently the largest religion in the world! Therefore, why does the planet seem to be in a downward spiral? Is there something wrong with the faith? Weird weather conditions alone have become a reason for concern. Fires, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, and the like, have increased over the past few decades at an alarming rate. Diseases that were once eradicated are not resistant to antibiotics. And what about the high cost of food these days? They say that it’s due to the effects of atmospheric conditions, pestilence, and human intervention. The mid-western United States was once said to be a bread basket blessed with such an abundance of agriculture that we used to export it to other nations. In recent years America has been depending more on imports! Media news has become very depressing. Even attacks from wild animals have greatly increased. So what is the cause of all of this?
Is God angry at us? Somehow the thought of God being anything other than loving and kind does not fit in with most church teaching these days. Sugar coated doctrine which paints God as a big Santa Clause in the sky has left the church spiritually malnourished! This book goes back to the basics of the Christian faith. So many different doctrines in churches these days can make Christians dizzy. Yet we know that “...God is not the author of confusion, but of peace...” (1 Corinthians 14:33 KJV). So where do we find answers and truth? We seek out the One who said, “...I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6 NIV).
This book makes it simple and concise. Chapter One answers the question, “Why Is The World Such A Mess?” It peels back the spiritual curtain and tells us what the Bible says occurred in Heaven before this world was even made. Chapter Two responds to the question, “What Really Is Sin?” People have developed their own ideas about sin based on what is socially and politically correct. But God has His own ideas on the subject, and they do not necessarily agree. And so many people have gotten to the place where they are not sure whom Jesus Christ really was. Worldly movies and shows have painted a very different version of Christ than what the Bible really tells us. So Chapter Three is entitled “The Deity Of Jesus Christ.” And to sum it all up, Chapter Four is “Spiritual Deception In The Last Days.” It points to scripture seldom used in churches. It also provides the reason for the current state of miseries in this world. And what you, as a believer, can do to feel safe. Rather than depending on what you hear from outside sources, go back to the source. Everything in this book is backed up with scripture references even a child can understand.
