Have you ever looked at the multitude of opinions on Christian doctrine and been confused? If the early church did not teach certain rituals, where did they come from? And what does the Bible say regarding these issues? In Misconceptions of Christianity, Author John Marcus explores many of the major doctrinal stances that do not appear in the Bible or in the very early church. His goal is to show the reader where the doctrines came from (or at least from where the misunderstanding stems) and what the Bible teaches concerning them. He covers topics such as: Tithing and giving to the church The doctrines of Mary and her veneration The gifts of the Spirit, including the gift of tongues The observance of Christmas and other religious holidays Demonic possession and spiritual warfare And many more This book guides readers through the confusion that modern Christianity can bring and leads them straight back to the source-the Bible. Its approach is both insightful and convicting, giving the reader a standard with which to judge his or her own actions instead of a set of rules to follow. With a strong belief that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, John conveys to readers the importance of a Christ-centered theology that stems directly from the Scripture. Author John Marcus has studied theology and lives in New York. Misconceptions of Christianity is his second book.
