Publisher's Description

Too often Christians carry a lot of guilt and baggage when it comes to their relationship with God. The problem is that so many of us believe unbiblical, damaging things about how critical God is and how fed up he must be with us. But many of the things we think Jesus would say to us--things like "I can't believe you call yourself a Christian," "If you really loved me, you'd try harder," and "I'm so disappointed in you"--are things he never said. The solution, says Will Davis Jr., is to stop believing the lies and start believing the things Jesus did say.

In 10 Things Jesus Never Said, Davis unmasks commonly believed myths about our relationship with God and shows readers how to replace this pervasive theology of failure with the truth of how Jesus really feels about them. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter help small groups or individuals apply these truths to their current situations. Anyone who has ever felt that they didn't measure up to God's standards will love this freeing exploration of grace and forgiveness.

"Will Davis has nailed it. He has identified the most common lies that keep people from experiencing true freedom in Christ and has replaced them with the truth. I was in shock when I saw that some of those lies had crept into my own mind. Thank you, Will, for putting us all back on the solid ground of grace-filled truth!" -Tim Liston, senior pastor, New Hope Church, Manvel, Texas

"Will Davis has a special ability to share incredibly profound insights in a way that makes you believe he's walking beside you on a journey and knows exactly how you feel. There is not an honest person alive who hasn't struggled with the mistruths outlined in this book. The freedom you will find as you read many change your life forever!" -Ryan Rush, senior pastor, Bannockburn Baptist Church, Austin, Texas

"This is Will Davis Jr.'s best book yet. You are about to be humbled, dismantled, and brought face-to-face with the misbeliefs that have stood between you and the most beautiful love that has ever been known. Be ready to fall on your face and into his arms and feel the divine lightness of his cross on your shoulders. Know this love. Nothing else matters." -Nancy Turner, host, This Is the Day, Moody Radio

Will Davis, Jr. helps his readers rediscover grace in 10 Things Jesus Never Said: And Why You Should Stop Believing Them. In it, he unmasks commonly believed falsehoods about our relationship with God. The book begins with the truth of something Jesus did say: "I will give you rest" (Matt. 11:28).

With this as the foundation, Davis continues into Part 2, "Things Jesus Never Said," by combating these lies: You're too far gone to be saved. I'm disappointed in you. This wouldn't be happening if you were a better Christian. It's okay not to love certain people. Everyone should believe and act the way you do. It's all up to you. You don't have to forgive someone who really hurts you. You missed My will for your life. I've given up on you. This is a cross you must bear.

Davis also gives readers a bonus chapter about divorce, and he concludes the book reminding his readers of Matthew 11:29-30: "Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

Each chapter begins with an anecdote, exposes a specific lie, reveals the truth, and then elaborates on the truth by providing "Exhibit A" in the form of a lesson either from the Bible or from Davis's own experiences in counseling people today. Each chapter concludes with seven to ten discussion questions tailored to a small group or an individual to help apply the truths learned in the chapter.

Will Davis earned his doctor of ministry degree from Southwestern Seminary and is the founding pastor of Austin Christian Fellowship, a nondenominational church in Austin, Texas. He is also the author of Pray Big and Why Faith Makes Sense. In 10 Things Jesus Never Said, he takes readers through common lies Christians believe and brings hope and inspiration (as well as gentle admonishment) through the lens of grace. He uses Philippians 1:6 to remind his readers that salvation is a process and that "no one is ever completely sanctified until getting get to heaven." He mentions wine and bread in communion. He believes that "it is impossible for Christians to lose their salvation," and explains this stance in some detail in the chapter titled, "I've Given Up on You."

Even if you don’t hold to his exact theology, Davis still has true and worthwhile issues to explore, lies to combat, and truths to explain. His writing is entertaining and informative, encouraging and instructive, and is for all who are seeking a relationship with God but are stunted by a guilt they cannot seem to banish. Says Davis, "If you've ever felt you didn’t measure up to God’s standards, it's time to stop believing the lies and start believing the things Jesus really did say!"
