Review of the book Andi Unexpected by Amanda Flower

This book was a children's mystery book. This girl named Andi and her sister move into her aunts house and find this mystery trunk in her attic with a doll and papers and such! They try to figure out who it all belonged to and at the end it all goes ok. I don't really remember much about the book. Maybe I should re read it. I think it would be cool to find something in the attic and wonder where it came from. Like a family heirloom or something. I get excited looking back on my childhood and remembering sentiments from when I was a kid such as yearbooks. I also like watching videos on the tv of my family and remembering holidays I used to celebrate, life changes so much, it goes to fast and we regret not spending time on what is really important. In life family, friends,religion,etc those are important, not electronics or stuff that we can't take with us at the end. When we die, we don't don't take our belongings with us. And sometimes we buy stuff to make us happy, but does it really? Does having riches and money really make us happy? People like to think so but it doesn't. And sometimes it takes something that goes wrong in our life that makes us realize what is important. Like someone having unexpected surgery, or a seizure like I did. That scared the crap out of me. Made me realize I might be around forever, so take care of myself and my family.

Review of the book Strange Fire by John Macarthur

I was excited to read this book. It sounded so interesting and fun! It took me 4 days to read it because I didn't realize how big the book was. It was 250 pages and it took me awhile to read it.

**This review might offend some people. If you get offended after reading this then please do not leave a rude comment. I will simply ban you and delete your comment. Thanks**

I enjoyed most of the book. The point of the book is what is the correct way to worship and praise GOD and the wrong way! The book talks about counterfeit worship and how it can offend GOD and Jesus. Yet the book talks about how real the trinity is and that is totally false. GOD is the father, Jesus is the son and the holy spirit is what they give us to help us worship him. They are not 3 in one like many people believe so the author is totally incorrect on this. Also the author got one thing wrong about Jehovah's witnesses, we do not believe the world will end in 2033, where did he get that? We do believe the world will end one day but we do not know when.

I enjoyed the quote on in the opening pages, the page xiii which says " it is a sad twist of irony that those who claim to be the most focused on the Holy Spirit are in actuality the ones doing the most to abuse, grieve, insult, misrepresent, quench and dishonor him...." The next quote I like on the next page is " They have become like the Israelites of Exodus, who compelled Aaron to fashion a golden calf while Moses was away." Another quote I like on page xvi that says " People proclaim a gospel of health and wealth, a message completely incompatible with the good news of scripture...The incredible irony is that those who talk the most about the Holy Spirit generally deny his true work."

On page 11 I like this quote " Some backing up their false teachings by twisting the scriptures or claiming new revelation from GOD". I also like the quote on page 12 " Many have over to ideas and practices which come straight from pagan religions, and large numbers of young and impressionable believers have been spiritually corrupted in the process." "Let each remind himself of the prohibition of taking anything away from scriptures or adding anything to it. "

One way to test who is the real religion ask yourself these 5 questions, Does the work exalt the true Christ, does it oppose worldliness, does it point people to the scriptures, does it elevate the truth, does it produce love for GOD and others? Another good reason to know if you have the true religion is to find Joy in it. "Their joy is found serving the Lord Jesus,and their love for GOD is seen in their obedience in him." (Pg 57)I like the quote on page 78 " It chooses bible verses selectively to fit a name-it-and-claim-it theory but it does not love Jesus." I like the quote on page 191 which reads " The spirit bestows his people with teaching and serving gifts for the building up of the church. "

All in all I enjoyed this book because the author really brings out the errors of those claiming to be people of GOD and how they trick you and how they really not of GOD at all.
