  • Strange Fire: The Danger of Offending the Holy Spirit with Counterfeit Worship

    What would God say about those who blatantly misrepresent His Holy Spirit; who exchange true worship for chaotic fits of mindless ecstasy; who replace the biblical gospel with vain illusions of health and wealth; who claim to prophesy in His name yet speak errors; and who sell false hope to desperate people for millions of dollars? The charismatic movement has always been a breeding-ground for scandal, greed, bad doctrine, and all kinds of spiritual chicanery. As a movement, it is clearly headed the wrong direction. And it is growing at an unprecedented rate.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The healing of the author from many spurious prophesies he has been given.


    What was most disappointing about John MacArthur’s story?

    He does speak some truth in that, the Catholic Church is dead, it is religious (which God is not) and it is not of God. He also calls to account the many sins found in the Charismatic movement. There is no doubt that this is true. However this has SO wounded the author (and it can do that for sure and the Charismatic movement has deeply wounded many of God's children) that he no longer believes in a living God who can actually interact with his children, who can have a two-way relationship with God. THAT hurt my spirit and it is wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong. The only reason God's speaks through another person is when the person spoken to, is not listening, too wounded to hear, too deeply in sin or whatever. The greatest sin of the charismatic church is that it FORCES people to prove that they are filled with the spirit by operating in gifts they simply do not have. It's not that you cannot have these gifts but being filled with the holy spirit requires one thing and one thing only - total and complete and genuine submission to God. MOST people do not want to do this but they still want to be accepted into a church. They are told that they DO have a gift and that they must find it and start operating in it. Preachers actually stand in front of their congregation and pretend to speak in tongues saying 'bub bub bub bub bub bub bub bub' and that's all they ever say. Utter absolute rubbish and they KNOW it's utter absolute rubbish but they stand as an 'example'. No wonder so many are damaged by the Charismatic church. However there IS a real relationship to be had with God and it IS with a LIVING GOD not a dead God who only spoke to and worked through people centuries ago. People must be allowed to have the amount of faith that they want, must be accepted to submitting to God the amount they want - and stop being forced by charismatic leaders (who are themselves deceived) to operate in gifts THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE. It's rife in the Charismatic movement.However this author has been damaged by them and has closed himself off to a relationship with a LIVING God who CAN and WILL be a real presence in your life if you will only let him. Is caution required in pursuit of this relationship? Absolutely 100%. But it exists and should be pursued.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Strange Fire?

    The parts that intimate that God cannot and does not communicate with people today, that there is no living God, that there is only scripture. The parts that say all communication from God today is rubbish and that HE WILL NOT LISTEN TO ANY OF IT. Does discernment have to be engaged when listening to God - absolutely 100%. But this author is so damaged and he doesn't know it. Much of what he says is true but he is also killing the belief in a God that actually exists. God cannot be dead to humans other than through scripture - and yet still be alive. HE IS ALIVE. HE IS A LIVING GOD! RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW! It cannot be otherwise.

    We were not created to just get by with average, unrewarding or unfulfilling lives. God created us to leave our marks on our generations. Every person has seeds of greatness planted within by the Creator. When life weighs upon us, pushing us down, limiting our thinking, labeling us in negative ways, we have what it takes to overcome and rise above into the fullness of our destinies.

    In his unique teaching style, Pastor Bill Johnson delivers a message to help listeners pursue God for greater measures of His presence than they have ever known before. In Face to Face with God, readers will learn: How to "set up an ambush" to apprehend God rather than just waiting on God, what it means to enter "the favor of His face," and how it changes history.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Loved it all because it's a book that feeds your spirit.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that the author pursued God with fervor and gave EVERYTHING. So few people do that and so they never really get to know God. When you are like that you hunger for others who know God because every word that comes out of their mouths feeds you.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes definitely I've listened to it and am still listening to it. Over and over. Love it.

    Readers can walk in the power and presence of the Holy Spirit in every area of life. With a sure hand, Stormie helps readers to see that the Holy Spirit wants those who know Him to hear His gentle leading when He speaks to their heart, soul, and spirit. He wants to help believers enter into the relationship with God they yearn for, the wholeness and freedom God has for them, and the fulfillment of God's promises to them. He wants to lead them.

    I am a spirit-filled Christian and listening to this book 'fed' me spiritually all the way through, every word, and it's a long book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lead Me, Holy Spirit?

    It was all good because it was written by someone filled with the Holy Spirit; so the words were living water. I luxuriated in it all.


    What about Renee Raudman’s performance did you like?

    Really loving easy-listening. Some readers are irritating but not so this one. Really nice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It contains words that feed you.

    I know this book doesn't come just from the effort of writing a book but from the author's whole life. SO worth it.

    Never before has world-renowned psychoanalyst Alice Miller examined so persuasively the long-range consequences of childhood abuse on the body. Using the experiences of her patients along with the biographical stories of literary giants such as Virginia Woolf, Franz Kafka, and Marcel Proust, Miller shows how a child's humiliation, impotence, and bottled rage will manifest itself as adult illness - be it cancer, stroke, or other debilitating diseases.

    What made the experience of listening to The Body Never Lies the most enjoyable?

    It's great that 'honour thy mother and thy father' is questioned in this book. There are some parents who should not be honoured.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Body Never Lies?

    Don't know about moments but the whole book questions the way abused children are told to 'forgive' and 'honour' those who abused them when our bodies are telling us that our truth is so important.


    What does Sara Clinton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A caring genuine sounding approach I suppose.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Body Never Lies?

    It gives you the freedom to accept how you feel, to be understanding of yourself instead of being understanding of the abuser.

    The Bible has the astounding power to transform lives. The stories of people like Francis of Assisi, Antony of Egypt, Augustine of Hippo, Martin Luther and Martin Luther King Jr. vividly demonstrate this. Why aren't more of us transformed by Scripture today? Too often we study biblical texts without believing that God truly inhabits this book. Scripture seeks to capture our minds, not merely educate them. In this book, Chris Webb explains that we can transform our Christian life by reading as lovers rather than as theorists.
