I recently wrote a “dreary” informational book about anti-semitism. During the difficult research, which took several months, I discovered that one of the top “peacemakers” in the Middle East is deeply involved with the New Apostolic Reformation. The scheme is complicated with many details. I enlisted a friend in Israel to help me with the research.
One night I felt impressed to contact the individual that I was researching. Surprisingly, he answered my email and we began a series of exchanges. I asked him about his involvement in the NAR, and he became evasive. When I pressed him for answers, he abruptly stopped responding.
The publisher I submitted it to chose not to publish the book, so I posted two chapters of the book on my blog. There was very little response by the readers. All that time and effort only served to prove what I was told would occur. People will not read a book unless it is short or stimulating. What stimulates them is what they are interested in. Most professing Christians are not interested in information relative to the last days. They gravitate to short articles, frivolous books, or books that do not hang clouds in their comfort zones. Undoubtedly, the majority craves books with new doctrine, new revelations, or arguments about why God is not as strict about obedience, commitment and sinfulness, as previously thought.
“Their hope is built on nothing less than comfort zones and churchiness.”
The issue is the diabolical schemes of Satan are now so vast and complicated that they cannot be explained succinctly. That runs afoul of the fact that, as previously stated, many professing Christians seldom read beyond text message-length material. Most of the ones that are avid readers read heresy or fiction—quite synonymous in my opinion.
Well-researched books have been written clearly describing the major deceivers and their deceptions. Those books barely sell enough copies to pay for the publishing costs. However, heretical books sell by the millions. For example, “Jesus Calling,” sold over 25 million and inspired a companion study Bible. “The Shack” sold over 20 million, and was made into a movie. According to one reliable source, the “The Purpose Driven Church” book has sold more than 60 million copies and is used by many churches as a textbook for the coming New Christianity. Continue reading
