With Jesus Always
This web site brings out some of the problems with Jesus Always.
This book is the sequel to Sarah Young's first book, Jesus Calling.
Go to the run from Jesus Always home page.
There are two categories of problems with Jesus Always:
1) It presents a "Jesus" who not only does not understand
scripture, but he flat out teaches things that are not Christian
and lead people away from salvation. That's a serious charge, and
one that takes more than a single web page to prove. Please read through
the articles on this web site, but to get the information you need
please get a copy of "Should I RUN From Jesus Always?"
2) Jesus Always is not Christian, it is a gateway to New
Age practices and teaching. What does "gateway" mean?
As a gateway, Jesus Always teaches the reader the foundational
practices of New Age spirituality, without explaining what they are
or taking the reader all the way to full New Age practices. It gets
the reader comfortable with, and believing that these practices are
Biblical when, in fact, they are not found anywhere in scripture.
of the foundational beliefs of New Age is that god is within us, and
the god within us will speak to us to guide us in our lives. However,
he speaks with a still, small voice, so we need to quiet ourselves
so that we can hear his voice. This is called practicing the Presence
(notice that the "P" is capitalized.) That is a major problem
with Jesus Always, it promotes a New Age understanding of Presence
(capital "P"), as it continually urges you to come into
and be in "My Presence." ("My" refers to Jesus.)
To come into the Presence you need to relax, be quiet, forget about
the past and future (be in the now), and quiet (silence) your thoughts
so you can feel the Presence. Typical methods for quieting your thoughts
include short repetitive prayers, breath prayers, and keeping your
thoughts on the present moment (present moment awareness). You'll
see these, and other New Age beliefs and practices, taught throughout
So please read the articles on this web site. Use the "Jesus
Always" and "Web Exclusive" menus above for articles
directly about the Jesus Always devotion. You'll also find
good information about New Age beliefs (revealing things you probably
didn't know) on the "New Age" menu.
Also, please get a copy of "Should I RUN From Jesus Always?"
You might also consider getting a copy of "RUN! It's Jesus
Calling" which provides a look at Sarah Young's other major
devotional. It has some additional perspectives.
