As a Christian this book made me pretty upset I guess I should have guessed it from the title Apologetics are a very important part of any Christian s studies but this is the wrong way of going about it True apologetics should be about learning what something teaches, how it differs from what the Bible teaches, and how to minister to people who follow those teachings This book takes an approach along the lines of they believe this and here are all of the reasons why it s actually the same as Satan worship and they re going to hell It also takes a very archaic view o
My notes and quotes Sometimes God is like the blacksmith who takes a rusty, bent up, twisted piece of metal out of the junkyard He lays it on the hot coals and begins to heat it up Then he takes it off the fire, lays it on the anvil, and beats it into a truly useful implement After that he thrusts it into cold water When he takes it out of the water it is no longer a rusty, bent up, twisted piece of metal but a strong, tempered horseshoe, usable for an important purpose If you are seeking to grow as a Christian, life is not all health, wealth, and prosperity Sometimes God wants to conform you to His image And sometimes that means putting you in the fire, laying you on the anvil and putting you into the cold water You may not understand why, but when you don t understand, trust in the Lord with all your heart Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight P
A Sunday school teacher introduced me to this book when I was in my teens I was so captivated by it at the time that I rushed out to get my own copy Over twenty years later, I still refer to this book The authors are knowledgeable about the subject matter because they themselves were deceived by some of these teachings prior to coming to salvation in Christ While there are a few theories the authors hold in regard to UFOs, etc., they readily acknowledge that these are theories, and I say to critics of this book that their unconventional theories on a couple of issues does not invalidate the other truths laid out in this book The book gives an overview of various false teachings and contrasts those beliefs alongside solid, biblical counsel and scripture I had several Mormon friends growing up, and the information in this book helped me to witness to them, especially since there are cryptic secrets of their faith and history Mormons don t readily reveal in casual conversation While I enjoyed learning about the roots and fruits of various belief systems religions in this book, the chapters on Mormonism and Jehovah s Witnesses are ones I ve revisited most in trying to share the love of Christ to those zealous Mormon and Jehovah s Witnesses who have often knocked on our door It s a shame that the average Christian doesn t invest in
This book has very Informative chapters on the nature of Buddism, Mormonism, Jehova s witnesses, and Masonry, however, it does contain some questionable facts There is a section about UFO s and that seems to be completely inaccurate, claiming that UFO s are act
Informative I especially appreciated the chapters on Mormonism, Jehovah s Witnesses, Buddhism, Hinduism and Freemasonry. Uses Biblical truths to admonish believers and to expose the dangerous to silly fallacies of cults and religions.A very important, informative and valuable read. I miss this amazing man of God This book was extremely pushy, judgemental, old fashioned views, and filled with inaccuracies. A reread and very helpful manual in identifying major world beliefs and core doctrines I d say it s often been a good go to for quick generalities regarding 16 of the main religions found throughout the world Nonetheless, as one would expect of a Fast Facts book on multifaceted and complicated beliefs, glossing over important details, often semantics of world faiths allows for misunderstandings that are not helpful in striving to understand others in the world around us.I have found particular problems with throwing in Trinity based Roman Catholicism with other sects that are far from having a common Christian Creed I think Ron Carlson is off based here, regardless of his or other Trinity based differences in dogma and doctrine from the Catholic Church My own desire to see greater ecumenicism prevents me from appreciating this kind of writing, and seeing the type of criticism aime
A very enjoyable book I thought the personal stories by Ron Ed were the best parts There sure is alot of religions out there Its nice to have an idea as to what they are all up to This book is incredibly biased and written by Christian authors But what religious book isn t If you have a book that makes everyone mad then you know you re doing s
