Young's first book, Jesus Calling. Is it any better? Well... no... if you
are a Christian, this is not a devotional you should be reading. You should RUN

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.
wrong with writing a devotional as though Jesus were speaking the words?
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 "Sarah Young's Jesus Always Devotion EXPOSED!" -- 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 "Sarah Young's Jesus Always Devotion EXPOSED!"
does just that.
Eat The Meat, Spit Out The Bones
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 meat.
But, 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

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
