    Blasphemous book

    I hope this is the right place to post... I'm a UK Christian, highly concerned about a book that has recently gone on sale here. It's called The Joy Of Sects by Sam Jordison and purports to be about cults and false prohpets but actually spends most of its time maligning Christian groups and heaping insults on Our Saviour.

    How any self-respecting publishing house could stoop so low as to print this foul book, so insulting to Our Lord, I do not know. I do know that I am determined to stop it - and it's author - before it gets any further. Luckily I heard of it as soon as it was released. There is still time to cast it into oblivion before its stain spreads.

    This pro-gay, anti-God, blashphemous book contains foul language and pornographic images that I won't be replicating here. It maligns the name of Our Lord, using it in numerous tasteless jokes, suggesting he is not the Son Of God and even questioning his existence. It gives a false history of The Bible, describing the Christian theological system as "a confusing mess" and cunningly trying to create the impression that the gospels were written by others than the holy saints Mathew, Mark, Luke and John. It extracts passages from the Bible, out of context and describes them as "nasty".
    The list of its iniquities goes on and on, but I don't want to give them the oxygen of further publicity --- the only further oxygen my copy shall be getting will be in the flames of justice.

    I urge all Christians reading this to join my task.

    I have put up some suggestions for action on my website, available through my profile, but welcome all suggestions and independent initiatives.

    May God Bless You

    Oh, so it's the same ol' crap that has been hurled around since the days of Paul. I thought for a second it was something new. Don't worry Samuel these individuals are no different than those who have gone before them. There voice will be carried off by the wind as God's elect laugh it off.

    Exactly Doc! Nothing new here. It's offensive, and disgustingly sick, but if I got upset over every book like this (and believe me, most books that claim to be "christian" are offensive), then I'd never get any sleep.

    I tell you, the ones that bother me the most are the books that appear to be "orthodox" and get a lot right, but then they deceptively throw in subtle heresies that inexperienced sheep have difficulty spotting.

    i respect your views on this, but if we all took every insult lying down and refused to stand up for Jesus, where would we be? The line has to be drawn somewhere and I personally am drawing it here.

    They will have their due compensation in time if it in all likelihood is proven they are reprobate men that have been predestined to damnation by the Sovereign God who has hated them from before the foundation of the world. These evil acts that they commit are exactly what the Lord has prescribed for them.

    Agreed, but should they be allowed to peddle their filth to innocents? That's my worry. The people who will read this.

    Stand up for Jesus? What are you going to do, use force to get them to shut up? And why the authors of this book and not the Jesus Seminar or the Davinci Code?

    Sam, I used to think as you do before I understood Sovereign Grace. Now I know that evil exists to blind the reprobate. I do not rejoice in it nor do I wish do be a part of it, but I do look at it with understanding now. God WILL save His sheep from it and preserve them from buying the lies. Take comfort in that and praise God for His sovereignty and love for His Children.

    Mike

    Nice post Mike and Amen to that.
    I have not read hardly anything outside of the Bible, except for maybe studying the greek and hebrew texts and a few "devotional" books.

    On the subject of "godless books", the jewish religion has been doing this with their own Talmud for centuries and even "messianic christians" are drawn to that pagan "anti-christ" piece of trash" [ditto the Koran]

    Why and "True" christian in Christ would even be drawn to "anti-Christ anti biblical" books is beyond me, but those of course are an atheists dream come true, but only to them, and not the "True Elect Sheep" of our Lord Jesus, our Chief Shepherd, Amen.

    No point in getting angry at the world for being the world... You should expect if from them.

    There's a saying I used to quote a lot in my earlier days; "It's not the things that people have to say about you which matters, it's the fact they are taking the time to talking about you".

    It's been 2000 years and people are still preoccupied with The Lord.

    If Christ, as they like to force themselves to believe, is such a fraud, then why bother wasting precious time slandering Him? Surely they have better things to do, such as filling their stomachs full of worldly lusts!

    Let them pretend as though they have stones big enough to talk smack about Christ... We know the score; when He comes back heads are going to roll, butts will be kicked, and names taken before it all began.

    I would be a liar if I said vomit such as this publication didn't makes me angry, but when I put everything into perspective I know that any punch in the mouth I can offer these folks in nothing compared to His vengeance.

    In Him,

    Scott.
