Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

• God brings good luck

• Forgiving means forgetting

• Everything happens for a reason

• A godly home guarantees good kids

…and more.

Get ready to be shocked, relieved, and inspired in the pages of Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe. Because the truth is meant to set us free . . . not hurt us.

Synopsis:

Addressing such myths as faith can fix anything, forgiving means forgetting, and a godly home guarantees good kids, Osborne explores the greater truths they obscure.
