Now Wendy Alec is dashing headlong into the world of christian fantasy with a seven-series bookset. Calling it a Christian alternative to things such as Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, Alec says God gave her this idea eight years ago. Why is it that whenever Wendy Alec does anything, she says it’s God telling her to do it, even though the things she does is never scriptural.
Here is what Alec has to say about her venture into the world of Christian Fantasy:
Eight years ago, God gave Wendy Alec a dream – a dream to WAGE WAR FOR THE MINDS AND HEARTS OF AN UNCHURCHED GENERATION – the same generation who would watch Lord of the Rings and read Harry Potter. A dream to provide a revolutionary epic ALTERNATIVE for the media bombarded Christian in the form of a seven book supernatural fantasy series. THE CHRONICLES OF BROTHERS – the epic tale of three Archangels – three brothers – MICHAEL, GABRIEL AND LUCIFER, depicts Lucifer’s harrowing fall and banishment and his determination to destroy the Race of Men ensuring their incarceration in the Lake of Fire. Only one can put a stop to his malevolent plans – Lucifer’s arch adversary – The Nazarene. At Golgotha Lucifer suffers a humiliating defeat, he sends for the Dread Councils of hell to conspire against the Nazarene. In MESSIAH – the saga takes a twist as the three Angelic brothers are mirrored by three brothers of the Race of Men – a wealthy American banking family who hold one of 13 ruling generational seats of the Illuminati… One of the earthly brothers is Lucifer’s clone – his Messiah – Son of Perdition… The first book, THE FALL OF LUCIFER launched in the UK in 2006 – in one of England’s major secular bookchains. A cult-following rapidly developed including many who would never set foot inside a church. Source.
Using concepts of God’s Holy Word to write fiction is dangerous, and judging from the way these books are selling, many people are being influenced by it. First of all, I would like to see scriptural proof where Michael, Gabriel, and Lucifer are literal brothers. Playing fast and loose with God’s Word doesn’t seem to bother Alec. Taking God’s Word and re-writing it to be loosely based on God’s Word is actually changing God’s Word, and adding much information to it that wasn’t originally given to us. What Wendy Alec doesn’t see is that the main heart and thrust of the occult is to seek hidden knowledge where God chose not to give or reveal it. What Alec doesn’t see is that writing a book, or books, that purports to give a “new insight” where God chose not to give it is extra-biblical in nature, and is to be avoided at all costs. God revealed all He chose to reveal, and He doesn’t need fantasy from the mind of Wendy Alec to help Him along in revealing Himself to us when He has given us His holy and infallible Word.
To people like Alec, who don’t know God’s Word, Satan is still the ruler of Hell. Yet, God’s Word is clear that Hell is a place of torment, and Satan does not rule or govern it, he will one day be punished by being tossed into the Lake of Fire. But, what matter does it make when it’s just fantasy, right?
One of the biggest problems in the church is that we have a need to be entertained, but when you take away all of the entertainment that keeps people preoccupied, see how long it takes people to run for the doors and find another church that will fulfill their need to be distracted. Entertainment distracts people from God, it doesn’t draw them to Him.
If people had a true love for the knowledge of God and His Word, they would never be able to comfortably read garbage like this. But, who needs discernment when folks are happy just to be entertained with fantasy that has not one merit of truth in it?
Christian fanstasy are two words that should never be used together. God’s Word deals with reality… period.
