If you have school-age children, you need to read this!

From Carol:
NOTE: I have copied here, with permission, a blog that I read today. The blog writer, in her desire to get it out to as many as possible, requested that I email it and copy it to my own blog, so I have done that below.


If you have children or grandchildren, work with children at church,
or you have neighborhood children whose parents you know, please take
note of the information below and pass it along to others. Schools are distributing this book to children through the Scholastic Book Club.

The name of the book is Conversations with God.. James Dobson talked
about this book twice this week. It is devastating. Parents, churches
and Christian schools need to be aware of it. Please pass this
information on to church/e-mail addresses, Parents, Grandparents,
Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, friends.

Please pay special attention not only to what your kids watch on TV,
in movie theaters, on the internet, and the music they listen to, but
also be alert regarding the books they read.

Two particular books are, Conversations with God and Conversations
with God for Teens
, written by Neale D. Walsch. They sound harmless
enough by their titles alone. The books have been on the New York
Times best sellers list for a number of weeks, and they make truth of
the statement, "Don't judge a book by its cover or title."

The author purports to answer various questions asked by kids using
the "voice of God." However, the "answers" that he gives are not
Bible-based and go against the very infallible word of God. For
instance (and I paraphrase), when a girl asks the question "Why am I a lesbian?" His answer is that she was 'born that way' because of
genetics (just as you were born right-handed, with brown eyes, etc.).
Then he tells her to go out and "celebrate" her differences.

Another girls poses the question "I am living with my boyfriend. My parents say that I should marry him because I am living in sin. Should I marry him?"

His reply is, "Who are you sinning against? Not me, because you have
done nothing wrong."

Another question asks about God's forgiveness of sin. His reply "I do not forgive anyone because there is nothing to forgive. There is no such thing as right or wrong and that is what I have been trying to
tell everyone, do not judge people. People have chosen to judge one another and this is wrong, because the rule is "judge not lest ye be judged."
Not only are these books the false doctrine of the devil, but in some
instances quote (in error) the Word of God.

And the list goes on. These books (and others like it) are being sold
to schoolchildren through The Scholastic Book Club, and we need to
be aware of what is being fed to our children.

Our children are under attack. So I pray that you be sober and
vigilant about teaching your children the Word of God, and guarding
their exposure to worldly mediums, because our adversary, the devil,
roams about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter
5:8). We know that lions usually hunt for the slowest, weakest and
YOUNGEST of its prey.

Pass this on to every Believer you know. God bless! And, if you are in doubt, check out the books yourself.

That's up to you, Diama.
Being a God-follower like I am, I wouldn't give it the attention (money) it's trying to get.
