Watch the video: The Jesus Always

Jesus Always is an interesting follow-up to Jesus Calling.
There has been an obvious effort to include more Christian language
and doctrine. But as you'll learn from the new book "Should
You RUN From Jesus Always?" the underlying New Age principles
are still there, and like Jesus Calling this new Sarah Young
devotional is written as though Jesus is speaking.
What's wrong with writing a devotional as though Jesus were speaking
He didn't speak the words!
That is the simple truth. Jesus never spoke the words in the Jesus
Always devotional. Take a look at this sample chapter from "Should
You RUN From Jesus Always?" -- Jesus
Always: A Quick Test.
Jesus Always - Putting It To The Biblical Test
However, this quick test is not a Biblical test. Scripture tells
us to be like the Bereans and test books such as Jesus Always
using scripture. And besides, maybe I'm biased and can't do a fair
evaluation. Shouldn't we use an independent test based on biblical
principles? The book "Should You RUN From Jesus Always? does
Eat The Meat, Spit Out The Bones
I received an email from a lady who disagreed with me about running
from Sarah Young's first devotional book, Jesus
Calling. She felt that it was okay to read Jesus Calling,
if you "eat the meat and spit out the bones." But,
I pointed out that the problem with Jesus Calling isn't the
bones, it's the poison. And you can't spit out the poison. Plus, with
Jesus speaking all the words in Jesus Calling, there is no
what if someone gives you a copy of Jesus Always? You know
it's bad teaching, so you don't read it, but you do put it on your
bookshelf. Is that a problem? Yes, it is. Read this sample chapter
titled: "Why You Should
Run from Jesus Always."
The book is about 230 pages. Some of the topics include:
- Putting Jesus Always To The Test
- Experiencing The Presence of God
- True Joy, What Does Scripture Say?
- Jesus Speaking, Sinful or Acceptable?
- Doesn't Jesus Understand Scripture?
- The Mother Tereasa Test - tests your faith
A number of Jesus Always devotions are examined in the book.
It even looks at a devotion that Sarah Young has identified as one
of her favorites.
The image to the right is a copy of the September 5th Jesus Always
devotion, hand written by Sarah Young. I received this from the
publisher, Harper Collins Christian Publishing. They identified this
devotion as one of Sarah Young's favorites. When this devotion is
evaluated against scripture, it falls short of being Biblical. You
can read the complete evauation in the book "Should You RUN
From Jesus Always?"

sure to read Pastor Steve's companion book that reveals the path to
true joy and happiness. It's called "Happy
Are The..." and it opens up scripture to show, in Jesus'
own words, how you can have eternal joy. The Beatitudes are eight
short statements in which Jesus says, "Blessed are the..."
and He describes a personal characteristic. He begins with four heart
attitudes and then gives the four actions that result from right heart
attitudes. The path to joy that the real Jesus describes in the Beatitudes
is radically different from what the "Jesus" in Jesus
Always teaches. Isn't it about time to learn the truth... to learn
what the real Jesus has to say about joy and happiness?
Are The... is now available on Amazon.
