You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! -- Isaiah 26:3

 

Many believers spend their whole lives unaware that imitating Christ was never intended to be attempted outside of God's divine power. This book exposes some of the ways Christians' nearsighted nature keeps them from a far more fulfilling walk with God. Many of the guiding principles practiced in the Church today are actually leading people away from Christ. Some of what we may consider the very tenets of our faith are literally killing our spiritual life. Instead of focusing on ourselves and our religion, we learn in this work to focus on Christ.

 

But I fear that somehow your pure and undivided devotion to Christ will be corrupted, just as Eve was deceived by the cunning ways of the serpent.  You happily put up with whatever anyone tells you, even if they preach a different Jesus than the one we preach, or a different kind of Spirit than the one you received, or a different kind of gospel than the one you believed. -- 2 Cor 11:3-4
