Blogoversary Giveaway #34



Thanks to the fabulous team at Waterbrook Multnomah, I have bunches of good books to offer you. US only from my mailbox to yours. One of which is... Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe by Larry Osborne.

Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe

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.

What is something you thought was a Christian belief and later found out that it was not?

Good luck all! And for the fun of it, after your MANDATORY entry above, any of the following will get you additional entries...

I used to think that being a good Christian meant changing who I was so God could work in my life. Later, I discovered that if I let God work in my life, HE would change me!

I was raised in a Christian home and I really can't say that any beliefs that my parents and church taught were wrong. So I don't know of any that I found out later were not right.

I'm still interested in winning this book though.
