Product Description

Believe it or not, the saying "God helps those who help themselves" is not found in the Bible. This and several other popular beliefs that emerged out of Christian culture are examined by David Rich. Looking to the Bible, Rich explores the Scriptural basis for where these ideas began, and leads you to the true source of God's wisdom for your life. 160 pages, softcover from Harvest House.

Publisher's Description

Author and professional speaker David Rich knows how to stimulate readers and get them to ask questions—such as “You mean that isn’t in the Bible?” In this book, David turns his attention to ten popular notions commonly believed by Christians...but found nowhere in Scripture.

Such beliefs, he indicates, are based in human–centered “religion” that waters God’s Word down into pop culture. However, in every case, the Bible’s true originals are vastly more liberating than sentiments like...

  • God helps those who help themselves
  • Believers are God’s co–pilots
  • Christians aren’t perfect, just forgiven

David’s enthusiastic, energetic, easy–to–read style—which reflects his many years as a speaker—pulls his audience 100–percent into his arguments. Though readers may not agree with him right away, they will be challenged...and they will be motivated to check their Bibles and see why the unadulterated version of God’s truth is always the best news.

    I'm glad when any book encourages people to read the Bible, and Rich makes some good points in this one, but I feel it is overall theologically unbalanced - a corrective that goes too far.The book's main point, the belief that Rich is really excited about, is the sovereignty of God: the fact that the Lord has control over everything in heaven, the world, people's hearts and minds, our lives. I have to agree that's important, but Rich is not a trained theologian and I think he has gone a little too far with it into a kind of hyper-Calvinism. (He doesn't seem to have a place in his understanding for free will in any form.) I appreciated Rich's point in Ch. 5 that a Christian has a new identity as "child of God" instead of "sinner." He is right on in saying that Satan is not battling the Lord for victory; he has already lost. I also appreciated his way of looking at the practical implications of some of these beliefs. Overall, some good parts and good points, but needs some discernment in places where the author has gone too far.

    This book covers what the author believes to ten misconceptions that Christians should be aware of.Author David rich exposes popular beliefs that the he believes aren't true; things that some might believe are in the Bible but he believes aren't. This book was well written and easy to read. It really made me think and dig into God's Word for myself. While I agreed with most of this book, there were a few chapters where I did not see eye to eye with the author. I suggest you read this book with an open mind. The author makes many good points, but I suggest you be like the "Bereans" and search the Scriptures for yourself.
