A Conversation with God

A Conversation With GOD is not something I would recommend to anyone.

Although some of the points and ‘Conversations’ are some what correct I did not like that the intention was to sound like GOD was talking to me. Not because I thought I was too good for this book but because it made GOD seem not as High and not as Mighty. Almost as if He were a man speaking and not your Heavenly Father that is All Knowing and Powerful.

It also had commentaries from Paul, Peter, Joshua, Jeremiah and Jesus (and a few more) which I thought was disrespectful to GOD. Paul and GOD are not equals. Jesus and Peter are not equals. Peter and Paul are terrible sinners just like you and me. Jesus is GOD the two different commentaries are unnecessary. Jesus the Son, God the Father, and The Holy Ghost are the Trinity. They are three in one.

One topic was “God, is Jesus really your Son?” when I saw this question I really stopped  and thought “You can not be saved unless you know: Jesus, God’s Son, died for me on the cross and ALL the things in the bible are true because GOD said they were true and there is no way without The Word Of GOD (John 1:1).” And since that is the case then you would know Jesus is God’s Son. Before you are saved there is a barrier between you and GOD and that barrier is sin you can not rightly understand the bible until your sin is gone.

Another topic in this book was “What will happen to people who don’t believe?” well in a simple answer… John 3:16. “…and whosoever shall believeth in him shall NOT perish but have everlasting life.” So if you do not believe in Jesus you will perish, and in the bible perish means perish to Hell because you are in sin, you can not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Thus you go to where Satan is; Hell.

And the last topic I will discuss is “Why should we pray?” for an unsaved person I can see why this is a question but for a Christian-- reading their bible-- the answer is every where. Besides the fact GOD said “Pray without ceasing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 and “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching there unto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” Ephesians 6:18. There should not be the question "Why" but maybe "When" and in those verses it tells you.

I also did not like the points this book made about Abortion, GOD said even an unborn baby is still a baby, (that might be why they say “unborn BABY” but then again…) killing is more then a choice.
Homosexuality, in the bible He calls them Abominations so yes, in their wicked ways He does hate them.
Political roles, Heaven, Hell, and suffering are some of the other things talked about.
And again I did not like the book trying to sound like GOD himself was talking to you; the Bible is here for that. It is a little insulting to GOD. Revelation 1:13 - 16, 10:1 - 3, 1 John 1:8 - 10

  1. Olivia,
    It is very encouraging to see a person of your age that is able to read a book that is amiss and can articulate the things that are unbiblical with such maturity without the help of her parents! Keep up the good work!
