A friend on another Team which I'm a member just made this post to a thread on that team. I think you'll want to be made aware of the warnings of the 2 books she names, especially if you're a Christian! Good to know (and check it out) so we can all be better parents/grandparents/aunts/uncles, etc! I suggest that if you are not sure of something in either of these 2 named books, compare it to God's Word: The Bible!
I received this email this morning
If you have children or grandchildren, work with children at church, or
have neighborhood children whose parents you know, please take note
information below and pass it along to others. Schools are
book to children through the Scholastic Book Club.
The name of the book is Conversations with God.. James Dobson talked
this book twice this week. It is devastating. Parents, churches
Christian schools need to be aware of it. Please pass this
information on to
church/e-mail addressees, Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles,
Please pay special attention not only to what your kids watch on TV, in
movie theaters, on the internet, and the music they listen to, but also
alert regarding the books they read.
Two particular books are, Conversations with God and Conversations with
for Teens, written by Neale D. Walsch. They sound harmless enough
titles alone. The books have been on the New York Times best
for a number of weeks, and they make truth of the
statement, 'Don't judge a
book by its cover or title.'
The author purports to answer various questions asked by kids using the

go against the very infallible word of God. For instance (and I
when a girl asks the question 'Why am I a lesbian?' His
answer is that she
was 'born that way' because of genetics (just as you
were born right-handed,
with brown eyes, etc.). Then he tells her to go out and 'celebrate' her
Another girls poses the question 'I am living with my boyfriend. My
parents say that I should marry him because I am living in sin. Should I

done nothing wrong.'
Another question asks about God's forgiveness of sin. His reply 'I do
not forgive anyone because there is nothing to forgive. There is no such
thing as right or wrong and that is what I have been trying to tell
everyone, do not judge people. People have chosen to judge one another
and t his is wrong
because the rule is ''judge not lest ye be judged.'
Not only are these books the false doctrine of the devil, but in some
instances quote (in error) the Word of God.
And the list goes on. These books (and others like it) are being sold to
schoolchildren through (The Scholastic Book Club), and we need to be
aware of what is being fed to our children.
Our children are under attack. So I pray that you be sober and vigilant
about teaching your children the Word of God, and guarding their
exposure to worldly mediums, because our adversary, the devil, roams
about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). We
know that lions usually hunt for the slowest, weakest and YOUNGEST of

check out the books yourself.
