The issue of listening for God’s voice is something I’ve consistently expressed concern over here at Steak and a Bible. That and a related “two-way journaling process” is the reason I reject Sarah Young’s books including “Jesus Calling.” I was skimming a Christian ebooks website the other day and found even more books about God talking to people.
I have been so adamant about this because I think this is a recipe for the worst kind of deception.
Now that brings me to today’s post and this podcast recommendation. On Monday July 15, Pirate Christian Chris Rosebrough addressed this very issue with his sermon review of Mark Virkler who is an avid proponent of stilling the mind to (supposedly) hear God’s voice as well as two-way journaling. Chris does a fantastic job of exposing the Bible twisting that is used to claim this is somehow a biblical practice. Please, please do yourself a favor and listen to this episode (or at least the sermon review portion of the program). This error seems to be influencing more and more people.
