Wendy Alec and Her Fantasy Series

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.

  1. I have read the first two books (chronicle of brothers) and till today I still cannot get it out of my head that the story was exactly how it happened. May God continue to give us wisdom.

    Chrystal:

    Thank you for your post.

    False prophets are like the Energizer Bunny, they keep going and going and going…

    And it was Wendy Alec who dashed headlong into the realm of false prophets on June 8, 2008:

    It’s sad to think there are sheeple who will spend their hard earned money on this stuff, when the Word of God is sufficient for anyone to read.

  4. LaVrai says:

    Hello.

    What I’d like to know is — if these are ALTERNATIVES to Harry Potter and LOTR — how are these books helping the “unchurched?”

    Also, I agree that trying to base a body of work on the actual words of the Holy Bible — as opposed to perhaps portraying Christians/Christianity — can often times be dangerous. We don’t have personal relationships with angels nor demons, so why on earth would one take his/her mind down that road…?

  5. JF says:

    ‘Christian fanstasy are two words that should never be used together. God’s Word deals with reality… period.’

    What do you mean by that? That fantasy based on Bible, like the one you’ve talked about, is wrong, or that Christians shouldn’t write/read fantasy at all?

  6. Carol says:

    If one wants to be a true follower of Jesus, “fantasy” is an avenue of deception and paying mind to things that are dangerous to even be contemplating, let alone “imagining”.

    If one’s “reality” seems difficult to bear, one needs to draw closer to the Lord and be reminded of the bright future in eternity.

    All too often the “Christians” are being misled and focused on the “here and now” so much so, they are not building up treasures in heaven, but living like the world lives. This is the dangerous thing for anyone who claims to believe in and follow the Lord Jesus. This is not our world, but when Jesus returns and redeems it, when He sets up His kingdom, then we will be part of that. Not being caught up in this evil nonsense of “Christian Fantasies” with the hideous notion of having a “Christian” alternative to Harry Potter and the LOTR.

    The content of the post is true. The way it’s done is all wrong. Aren’t we as christians supposed to offer our criticisms (which I can not spell) kindly and with humility? This post seems to come from a high-and-mighty perspective. You should speak of Wendy Alec with some decent christian respect and kindness, not as if your a better christian than she!

    It isn’t just that this struck a nerve (believe me, I am a harsh harsh critic of all christian media) it isn’t that the article isn’t right. It’s that many of the posts on this blog are done in a self righteous and pious manner. I really think you should be thinking carefully about this. Maybe you can go over your older posts and ask if your (albiet deserving) criticisms are delivered from a pharisee like mind-set.

    Thank you for bringing important christian headlines to our attentions though!

  8. Carol says:

    It’s a sad thing when people get defensive over criticism of false teachers/teachings/and bad writings that do not show God in a good way, but they don’t defend God or the Word of God with the same passion!

    Speaking for my own posts and comments, I’m certainly not perfect and I don’t claim to be. But I am a defender of God and His Word and how He’s portrayed in strange books and teachings with new age flavors and occult practices is unacceptable for believers.

    People should be defending the right things for the right reasons rather than the double standard.

  9. Bud Press says:

    Hi 16 year old (again):

    While Chrystal is certainly capable of speaking for herself, please allow me to jump in and comment on your post paragraph-by-paragraph. I have read your comments carefully and prayerfully. Please do the same. Afterwards, please feel free to jump in and add your comments.

    16 year old wrote: “The content of the post is true. The way it’s done is all wrong. Aren’t we as christians supposed to offer our criticisms (which I can not spell) kindly and with humility? This post seems to come from a high-and-mighty perspective.”

    Bud’s comments: To be fair and objective, I carefully re-read Chrystal’s post, and concluded that, based on Wendy Alec’s track-record, it was a fair and balanced assessment.

    In just a few paragraphs, Chrystal informed the body of Christ of a serious situation with Wendy Alec’s writings. Chrystal defended the faith, upheld the truth of God’s written word, and demonstrated love without compromise.

    Please keep in mind that sometimes a doctor has to cause pain to effect a cure. Sometimes, truth hurts and offends. And as someone once said, “It is better to speak the truth that hurts and then heals, than falsehood that comforts and then kills.”

    While I agree with you that Christians are to be kind and humble, Jesus Christ is our greatest example of love and compassion, but He offended virtually everyone 2,000 years ago, and He still does (Matthew chapter 23 is a good example).

    No doubt, Jesus was thought of by the Pharisees as having a “high-and-mighty perspective.” The Pharisees tried numerous times to back Jesus into a corner and catch Him in a lie or contradiction, but their pride and own lack of knowledge did them in.

    Indeed, the gospel–in and of itself–is an offense and a stumbling block (Romans 9:32-33). Thus, to offend someone with the truth demonstrates love for Jesus Christ and the truth of His written word. After all, Jesus said, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me” (Matthew 16:24). To follow Jesus Christ is to follow His example.

    16 year old wrote: “You should speak of Wendy Alec with some decent christian respect and kindness, not as if your a better christian than she!”

    Bud’s comments: Nowhere in Chrystal’s post did she say or even imply that she was a “better christian” than Wendy Alec. The question is: Is Wendy Alec a Christian?

    In Matthew chapter 7, Jesus clearly teaches the difference between a true and false prophet. True prophets produce good fruit. False prophets produce rotten fruit.

    And in Matthew 7:19, Jesus said, “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.” In other words, God does not honor false prophets. False prophets are not a part of the body of Christ. Further, unless there is true repentance, all false prophets will spend eternity separated from God in hell.

    Wendy Alec is a proven false prophet and false teacher–many times over (see http://www.christianresearchservice.com/WendyAlec1.htm ). Jesus commands the believer to “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits…” (Matthew 7:15-16).

    Jesus, Himself, calls Wendy Alec a false prophet and wolf in sheep’s clothing.

    Therefore, we have a choice: follow our feelings, emotions, and assumptions, or listen to and follow Jesus Christ.

    Bud’s comments: You make it difficult since you didn’t list the posts that were “done in a self righteous and pious manner.” Nevertheless, when we first fail to examine ourselves, we become what we dislike the most–self-righteous and pious.

    In Matthew 7:1-6, Jesus warns the believer not to judge hypocritically. In John 7:24, Jesus said, “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.” Using the terms “high-and-mighty perspective,” “self righteous and pious,” and “pharisee like mind-set” exhibits an elitist and exclusive mind-set, and is judging hypocritically on your part.

    Finally, Christians are under the Scriptural command to: test all things (1 Thessalonians 5:21; 1 John 4:1); preach the word (2 Timothy 4:1-2); guard and warn fellow Christians (Acts 20:27-31); boldly defend the faith (1 Timothy 6:12; Jude 3); expose the unfruitful works of darkness (Ephesians 5:11-12; 2 Corinthians 4:4); and tell the truth in love (Ephesians 4:14-15).

    With all of the above in mind, what do you think would be the best thing for you to do?

    In Christian love,

    Dear Bud,
    Wow. A little high school student taking a break from homework decides to quickly convict a fellow blogger and recieves an 831 word response that has little to do with actual post. Kudos to you for being so (looking for synynom of passionate, caring, articulate). Let’s not keep up with this farce “16 year old”. I don’t want to reveal my name online as a personal policy, so we can call me “Prodigal” or mabey “Youngling”. We’ll see. However I’m getting sidetracked…

    As I am swamped I didn’t have time to go over every singe word, so if I have missed anything major, let me know. First I need to respond to Carol:
    You said:
    “It’s a sad thing when people get defensive over criticism of false teachers/teachings/and bad writings that do not show God in a good way, but they don’t defend God or the Word of God with the same passion!”

    I’m officially taking “people” personally. I’m not at all offended or angry, so if my words come out that way I’m quite apologetic. (if only internet could communicate tone and body language). I agree with you that is very sad. But it is not at all what I am doing. Indeed, I would say I defend God’s word with more “passion” than I tried to correct Chrystal with. {yes, I do know how tremendously arrogant it is for a 16 year old twerp to correct an adult}. Carol, where exactly did I defend Wendy Alec? I don’t know a single thing about Wendy Alec! Realize my situation, I don’t think it is my place to comment on most of the topics on this blog, I am much younger than most of you. I decide to comment because I think Chrystal might have been self righteous. Yet you tell me I “defend false prophets”. The article simply stated that she was an author. I simply felt like Chrystal came on strong. Whether or not she was right has no impact on this conversation. Next time, read the comment (with a grain of salt and a dash of context) before you respond. Alright?

    (back to Bud)
    Which is what frustrates me. It is one thing to be offended by truth. It happens to us all the time. Homosexuals tell us we hate them because we tell them they are living in sin. I’m sure that’s how I come accrost. If so, please do forgive me. Jesus was not one to mince words. But Jesus was perfect. He was God. We are not. We must constantly remind ourselves that but for God’s grace, we could be just as fruity as some of the people chronicled on this blog. I am not at all offended for “Christian” fiction. In fact I can only think of C.S Lewis as a christian fiction writer I could reccommend as theologically accurate.

    We often suspect people of being guilty of what we are guilty of. Meaning, I am a very very self righteous person (Bud you alluded to this when you said “we become what we dislike the most–self-righteous and pious.”) so naturally I feel like what I am reading comes from the same perspective it would if I were writing it. Chrystal often simply posts News. What’s going on here and there, what crazy antic Bentley is up to, a video about Tearful hippies. But when she out right calls something heresy she should be very very careful indeed.

    I do not pretend to know my Scriptures half as well as I should. But let me say that we should not say whether or not someone is or is not going to heaven. For that is what saying that someone is or isn’t a christian really is. We do not know if God really has redeemed Wendy Alec. Indeed, it would seem from the few things I just skimmed that she does not bear proper fruit, but I do not know enough about her to say that she is not a christian!!

    A blog like this can easily turn into a self righteous one. Easier than butter sliding down a slide made of ice. Simply because if we start (i am NOT saying that chrystal has started or ever will) putting ourselves in the positon where we say what’s too spiritual, what’s not spiritual enough, what’s demonic, what’s angelic, what’s right, who’s good, who’s bad, etc. etc. That is horrible horrible arrogance. Thank God Chrystal is absolutley no where near this.

    You asked me what I felt like I should do. I feel like I should not apologize or retract what I said. I don’t think it was wrong of me to caution the blog writer. It was misinformed, which is now most obvious to me. Chrystal you are to be commended for comparing everything you post to scripture, not to your own understanding. Wonder why I posted as “16 year old”? To make sure anyone reading would know that I am younger and brash and not to be taken quite so seriously. You guys make me feel silly and foolish yes, but I do not think that it is wrong to caution a fellow christian.

    Thank you Bud for being so kind in your dealings with me!

  11. Carol says:

    I feel for those who find themselves in the position to defend these teachers even when they are false teachers and have been exposed as such. For new believers , those who are “babes” in Christ, it’s easy to attach oneself to a teacher or a writer who appeals to them for whatever reason they find themselves drawn to a particular teacher/preacher/writer/speaker…

    There was a time in my own walk with the Lord that I was drawn to a couple of particular teachers/preachers who seemed to be genuine Biblically grounded people. But over time I had seen their materials drifting from the Word of God and adopting a “Christian” psychology POV and while mixing that with Biblical truths, the subtle inserts of this worldliness had caused caution.

    God revealed the Word to me through Bible study at home that I was able to discern things that drew caution as time went by. I know that it’s easy to get attracted by certain people because of their personalities, their testimonies, and their approach to teaching or preaching and it seems to be sound. It’s hard to see the reality that those few “Christian leaders” I had looked for have supported and have fallen from truth, or have supported false teachers or stood on the same platform at conferences with strange teachings and it reminds me of God’s grace and wisdom He reveals.

    The more one grows in the Lord, the less of the need to have “Christian leaders” in the sense of the famous ones that people attach themselves to. That does NOT mean that one does not seek the wisdom of wise men and women of God, but not looking for the “popular” or “famous” Christian personalities, but those who are Biblically sound!

  12. Carol says:

    The previous post was not aimed at anyone in particular, it was just something that came to mind the other day.

    So for anyone who may think it was aimed at them, it was not.

  13. 16 year old says:

    Ahhh, sorry then! My mistake!

  14. Carol says:

    I’ve noticed that even when I have submitted an entry, depending on the time it was posted may appear to be a response to the post above it, and it looks as though mine came right after yours and I had not read your post until a few days later and it looks as though I was speaking about you.

    Normally, if I am addressing someone in particular, I begin my post and I have done that on other topics, with the person I wish to address. But if I’m speaking in general, then I just comment as such.

    Sorry it appeared as a personal attack.

    These things happen, and as long as we can make ourselves clear then you know the intentions were not for harm.

  15. Austin C. says:

    Wendy Alec is a great woman of God. If you watch her on GOD TV, it’s clear that she has a heart for Him and is not afraid of what people will think of her.

    See the fruit of her book to find out if its from God or not. The devil will never magnify Him in anyway…

  16. Bud Press says:

    Austin C.:

    You are in serious error. Wendy Alec is a proven false prophet and false teacher. And, like the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), God TV is a fellow promoter of hyper-heretics and false prophets.

    Great women of God place their complete trust in the truth of God’s written word, and uphold God’s word over-and-above what mere men and women teach.

    Great women of God fear and respect a holy and righteous God. They refuse to compromise in the midst of those who do.

    There are great women of God throughout the Bible, and now in modern times. Wendy Alec falls short of their example.

    Unlike Wendy Alec, great women of God produce good fruit in their ministries, which is a blessing to those who truly love Jesus Christ.

    Wendy Alec’s “Jesus” is not the Jesus of the Bible:

    http://www.christianresearchservice.com/WendyAlec1.htm

    Austin C., before you defend a false prophet and false teacher again, you would do well to concentrate on the Creator and His word, instead of the created and their doctrines of demons.

    Sincerely in Christ,
    Bud Press

  17. Carol says:

    A true woman of God would NOT waste her time trying to write a “Christian” alternative to Harry Potter, or anything of the sort.

  18. Donna says:

    The correct definition for “unchurched” is “UNSAVED”!~!~! The word unchurched should be removed altogether from Christian terminology.
    Using the term “unchurched” seems to imply some sort of “innocence” like it was not their fault that they were not “churched” when they were children, quite similar to the term “seeker”. The Bible is absolutely plain-we as human race are not “unchurched”-we are DEAD IN TRESSPASSES AND SINS, on our way to HELL! We are not “seekers”, we are ALL LIKE SHEEP GONE ASTRAY, and, likewise on our way to HELL. The term “unchurched” intentionally removes the fear of God and the fear of His judgement. It is a shameful thing and a fearful thing to meddle with the Truth, and with God’s terminology, remember it was God who selected the words, and He selected words based on infinite wisdom, infinite truth and infinite justice and mercy.
    It is only God’s goodness that leads us to repentance, we do not seek after God, instead the scripture says, He “seeks” us and saves us from our miserable, depraved,rebellious, self righteous, sin ridden impoverished spiritual condition. Get rid of the fairy tale words like seeker and unchurched, and let’s get back to REALITY AND TRUTH. True revival by the Spirit of God brings scorching conviction of judgement for sin and the way of salvation through Jesus Christ our only hope. People like Wendy Alec need to stop playing with God’s Word and need to stop catering to the fantasies of people who would rather have their ears tickled, and in this case have their minds “tickled” as well.
    What a shameful and disgusting thing to have “christian” “fantasy”!~!~!

  19. mel says:

    Firstly, Wendy has indeed proven herself to be a false prophet, no question.
    What concerns me here is what people consider as acceptable to read as entertainment. I am a Christian. I am well versed in scripture, and am adament about Sola Scripture, and the Bible as the only source of Godly truth.
    The Fall of Lucifer is a novel (fiction). I wonder of those who are extolling the evils of this book have even read it. I have, 3 times. It’s fascinating, well-written – a great work of – fiction. I know the difference between Biblical truths and a story. But this book is great entertainment. If we are going to be black and white, then Christians should read NO fiction at all. We shouldn’t go to movies. Because the only perfect, flawless book is the BIble. Or, is it possible, that I can be trusted with my God-given brain, and spiritual discernment, to be able to enjoy a fictional story and not incur the rath of other Christians, which I dare say probably spend much time and money on secular fiction. This book is beautifully written. Wendy Alec writes like a great artist would paint, full of beautiful imagery. The error lies in people who cannot draw lines between truth/reality and fiction. And ALL fiction is fantasy – it’s created in someone’s mind. So that label I find is purely inflamatory.
    So, ask yourself? Do I read fiction or go to movies? What about magazines & tabloid items like People, US, etc.? Isn’t a fictional book that is about Good/evil, God & Satan better than the trash the world puts out? OK, so it’s not scripturally accurate or provable, but it does not deviate from Biblical principles. But, there are no doctrinal heresies. In fact it upholds the Gospel message throughout. All the way through, Satan/Lucifer is the bad guy, he’s NEVER sympathetic. God & Jesus, Michael & Gabriel are always good. It’s simply a postulation of what made Lucifer fall & revolt. I do not understand why that alarms people, unless they haven’t actually read the book. (The sequel was disappointing to me however).

  20. J says:

    1. I’be never heard of those books until today.

    2. I have heard of Wendy Alec and know of her major prophetic malfunctions (in short, false prophesies/lies)

    3. It is an abomination to even attempt to redo or outdo LOTR. Shame on you, Wendy!

    (take 3. with a bucket of salt – i used to love LOTR, but had to get rid of the book on account of my conscience struggling with the use of “good” magic)

    “Is it possible, that I can be trusted with my God-given brain, and spiritual discernment, to be able to enjoy a fictional story and not incur the rath of other Christians, which I dare say probably spend much time and money on secular fiction.”

    Thanks Mel, for getting right to the heart of the matter! I just finished reading the first book and you know what? I loved it – now someone denounce me as deluded heretic.
    Why stop there? There are so many other christian fiction authors – Francine Rivers, Frank Peretti, Tim Lahaye and Jerry. B. Jenkins, Brock & Bodie Thoene.
    They’re probably wrong as well, but if I had a choice between giving one of their books and a book by some other author like, oh I don’t know, Phillip Pulman, I’d give a christian fiction book.

    I know she’s not biblical y accurate and all that….but how many of us can claim to be so? I mean in our way of life??? Isn’t there something in His word about speaking against the anointed of the Lord? And even if Wendy Alec is everything people say she is – how much more guilty are we who have condemned and judged her – We who are NOT God?

    I have a friend in Malaysia who could be put in prison for sharing her faith with the natives there, I live in India where anti-christian sentiments are slowly gaining popularity. When we try to share the gospel with our hindu friends, we know we could get beaten up and in some parts of the country killed – horrifyingly. We have to come up with innovative ideas to share the gospel and one of them is to give christian fiction as gifts to friends who like to read – and it’s amazing when they come up and say how much they liked the book and that they’d like to know more.

    Wendy Alec and the rest of them may have written these books with their own agendas in mind, but at least they’re doing Something! How many of us can say that?
    My muslim friends who have accepted Christ in Kashmir, go days without getting in touch with some of us and those times we don’t know if they’re alive or not. They throw parties where they include beer and alcohol and after a few times when they’ve gained the trust of a few people – they share the gospel. It’s dangerous, but they do it.

    People have criticized their methods and said really bad stuff about them – but like one of them said – God’s work is getting done. Isn’t that what really matters in the end???

    • Chrystal says:

      Rebecca,

      You have shown in your post what’s wrong with the modern church. You admit she’s not biblically accurate, and then excuse it by saying “how many of us can claim to be so?” Well, I can, because I read and study God’s Word.

      Wendy Alec, according to God’s Word, teaches heresy. Arguing with us is not going to change what God’s Word says. You say we’re judging her… no, we’re judging the doctrine she promotes, which Scripture tells us to do. Guess what? It’s found wanting!

      While I admire your interest in spreading the gospel, handing out Wendy Alec’s book, which you admit is not biblically accurate, is not spreading the gospel. Instead of handing out error, why not hand out biblical truth?

      You say, “Wendy Alec and the rest of them may have written these books with their own agendas in mind, but at least they’re doing Something! How many of us can say that?” You can’t say we do nothing for the Lord. Many of us are out there hip deep in heresy trying to reach out to as many as we can with God’s Word, and pull them out of the fire. We’re doing this because of people like Wendy Alec. Until you can inspect the lives of every poster on this site and see what they do for the Lord, you have absolutely no right to say they’re doing nothing for the Lord.

      You said, “People have criticized their methods and said really bad stuff about them – but like one of them said – God’s work is getting done. Isn’t that what really matters in the end???” You think spreading damnable heresy is spreading God’s Word? We are instructed to study God’s Word, we are instructed to “2Ti 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” We are also given this: “2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” Wendy Alec falls far short of Scripture, and spreads unsound doctrine. No, that’s not alright.

      The book of Titus tells us: “Tit 2:1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine…” How can doctrine be sound if it is not the doctrine handed down from Jesus Christ through the apostles? It is imperative that we cling to sound doctrine and reject the false, because it is the gospel of Jesus Christ, God’s Son. He won’t take lightly those who pervert the way of truth. This matter was so important that God warned us through the apostle Paul. Paul said, “2Ti 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

      Also, keep this in mind as an example:

      Galatians 1:6-8:

      6 ¶ I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
      7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
      8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
      9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

      When Apollos (a mighty man of the Scriptures) was teaching, Aquilla and Prascilla heard him and knew that he wasn’t preaching the proper doctrine. He only taught the baptism of John. Therefore, they took him aside and taught him the way more perfectly, that is, the gospel of Jesus Christ. They could have left him alone and said, “God’s work is getting done, that’s what really matters, isn’t it?” No, they took him and taught him the proper way. Apollos, who was a true man of God, didn’t get angry or defensive… he learned from them and began preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. According to Acts 18:8 – “…he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publicly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.”

      Don’t ever be party to people who pervert the Word of God. God’s Word is truth, and you must guard your soul against false doctrine. You can’t grow spiritually strong unless you are receiving a steady diet of truth.

    Ok, I’m confused…I have read both of Wendy Alec’s books and found both of them to be wonderful works of fiction based on biblical truths. I would compare them to the Left Behind Series and to Frank Perrit’s This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness and several others of his early works.
    I do understand the pull that many are having right now (including myself) to disassociate from Wendy Alec since her June 08 announcement that Christ was returning that month, and of course it didn’t happen, which makes her prediction a false prophecy. But, I just can’t see what is ungodly about her first 2 books.
    I am very hesitant about reading anything else from her right now, but I do believe that she was initially only writing a Christian fiction book that was designed to draw unbelievers into a relationship with God.
    Her work was never represented as being a true re-enactment of what happen before the fall of Lucifer or what really happen with Adam and man. It is a fictional book built around biblical truths.
    So please enlighten me as to what specifically is wrong with her books. I guess I’m just missing it.

    @C.B.
    Yes, but it also says in scripture that we cannot know what the intentions of others are for we are not God. re you sure that her intention is to reach unbelievers or would it be to gain… cash? This is what angers me about false-prophets, what they do is mostly done for personnal gain, profit and sometimes just even plain glory.

    What right does someone have to claim that the words they prophesy are FROM GOD when they are NOT. That is a direct sin against our Lord God. It doesn’t take bible knowledge or to be genius or to be enlightened to know that it is a sin.

    Thy shall not use God’s name in Vain and false-prophets do just that! They disgrace and discredit Christianity further! We have already been disgraced and discredited by those the Devil has influenced, those who are in high places in the church and in the world and yet act so horribly. The Churches of the past are an example of this and it is still happening now. Read revelation, false prophets is mentioned there and that they will decieve many. What they do is twisting God’s words!

    I myself am not angry at the books(I have never read them), but the person is creating… false-prophecies, which sows discord among the Church. False prophecies SEEM to have good intent but cause Chaos, is this not thesame fact with Christian Fiction? Seems to have good intent but causes Chaos with what is said and how it rivals the truth creating “truth” in the minds of readers.

    “What you see will influence what you think”

    Now I may not be THAT well versed in the bible, I do know the concepts by heart and God has given me the gift of logic(I wouldn’t say it is a gift of the Holy Spirit, but nevertheless a God-given talent!, I still pray for the Gift of Wisdom) to link things together.
