"Another Jesus" Calling by Warren B. Smith

Smith is concerned about the book Jesus Calling. He read the book and it disturbed him.”It was troubling for me to see a number of New Age practices and concepts being presented as completely normal for Christians.” (12) He warns of the deception of false Christs and the necessity of Christians to be spiritually discerning. He shares his specific concerns about Jesus Calling and God Calling.

Smith reminds Christians “that the deceptive spirit world is thoroughly capable of weaving Christian terminology and verses from the Bible in and around metaphysical occult terms and teaching.” (28) He makes readers aware of many New Age practices – ones readers may not know about.

Smith has presented a pretty good case. While a few of his concerns may seem unfounded, most of them are serious. He has certainly given readers much to think about. His book again points out that we Christians need to be discerning readers.

Warren. B. Smith (B.A. University of Pennsylvania; M.S.W. Tulane University) is a former social worker. Because of his former involvement in the New Age Movement, he has written extensively on the subject of spiritual deception. Find out more at http://www.warrenbsmith.com/.
