10 Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe by Larry Osborne (And Giveaway)

*** Leave a comment to be entered to win. Two copies available. Deadline is Tuesday April 28 at midnight.***

Just Because “Everyone Believes It”

Doesn’t Make It True

People don’t set out to build their faith upon myths and spiritual urban legends. But somehow such falsehoods keep showing up in the way that many Christians think about life and God. These goofy ideas and beliefs are assumed by millions to be rock-solid truth . . . until life proves they’re not. The sad result is often a spiritual disaster—confusion, feelings of betrayal, a distrust of Scripture, loss of faith, anger toward both the church and God.

But it doesn’t have to be so. In this delightfully personal and practical book, respected Bible teacher Larry Osborne confronts ten widely held beliefs that are both dumb and dangerous. Beliefs like these:

• Faith can fix anything
• Christians shouldn’t judge
• Forgiving means forgetting
• Everything happens for a reason
• A godly home guarantees good kids
…and more.

This sounds so good! Please add me. I really enjoy these books about the stupid side of Christianity, for some reason. They're kind of reassuring.

It's always great to learn more of what the Bible teaches than what we sometimes think to be true. Please add me for the giveaway. Thanks!
