Ten Lies about God: And How You Might Already Be Deceived by Erwin W. LutzerThe clearer we see God, the clearer we shall see ourselves. With this conviction firmly in mind, Dr. Erwin Lutzer examines ten lies about our Maker that have crept into spiritual thought in postmodern times. And he notes that these deceits are prominent not only in non-Christian minds but in the professing church as well.
On the surface, each of these lies may appear at least partially true or even harmless. But, as Dr. Lutzer reveals, each harbors a distinct danger: It isnt biblical, so it puts our faith at risk. In Ten Lies About God he challenges the accuracy of these beliefs:
Lie 1: God is whatever we want him to be.
Lie 2: Many paths lead into Gods presence.
Lie 3: God is more tolerant than He used to be.
Lie 4: God has personally never suffered.
Lie 5: God is obligated to save followers of other religions.
Lie 6: God takes no responsibility for natural disasters.
Lie 7: God does not know our decisions before we make them.
Lie 8: The Fall ruined Gods plan.
Lie 9: We must choose between Gods pleasures and our own.
Lie 10: God helps those who help themselves.
The goal of Dr. Lutzers study is not only purity of spiritual belief, but an enhanced worship of God.
Ten Lies about God: And How You Might Already Be Deceived
In this series of messages, Pastor Lutzer shows that contemporary culture rather than the Bible often forms our conceptions about God. Since our ideas of God are the most important thing about us, we are challenged to submit ourselves to what God has said about Himself in the Scriptures. Only Christ—fully man, fully God—can be the mediator between God and man. Christians often do not know how much God has graciously given them. In this series, Pastor Lutzer attempts to remedy that problem by showing us eight biblical gifts from God
