Lighthouse Trails has recently contracted with author Warren B. Smith for his new book, “Another Jesus” Calling, a biblical analysis and critique of Sarah Young’s book, Jesus Calling. Because millions of readers (most of them proclaiming Christians) are turning to Jesus Calling for messages and inspiration they believe are from Jesus Himself, a careful and responsible examination of Sarah Young’s book is prudent and necessary.
With a fast growing number of Christians turning to contemplative mystical practices to “experience” God, the editors at Lighthouse Trails feel an urgency to present Warren B. Smith’s latest work to the body of Christ; and in doing so, we ask this question, is Sarah Young’s “Jesus” the Jesus of the Bible, or is it a false Christ, of which the Bible warns many shall come in the last days? (Luke 21:8)
About “Another Jesus” Calling:
When former New Ager Warren B. Smith read Jesus Calling, he became greatly concerned, finding it troubling to see a number of New Age practices and concepts being presented as completely normal for Christians.
Even more troubling, there were no warnings or disclaimers about what was being introduced. By the end of the book, Jesus Calling and its “Jesus” had subtly, and not so subtly, introduced occult/New Age channeling, spiritual dictation, creative visualization, meditation, divine alchemy, co-creation with God, and practicing the presence like it was everyday Christian fare. New Age terms and concepts were brought into the messages like they were no big deal. And added to this were indirect references to a pantheistic poet and two classic New Age books, along with a hearty endorsement of God Calling – the channeled book that inspired Sarah Young to try and receive her own personal messages from Jesus.
The unusual use of language by the “Jesus” of Jesus Calling was also disturbing. It seemed to run the gamut from “everyday Joe” language to strange word choice, unwarranted flattery, worldly clichés, repetitive phrases, disparaging comments, and not so subtle mockery. All in all, Jesus Calling seemed to be an obvious attempt by our spiritual Adversary to get an even further foothold inside the Christian church.
“Another Jesus” Calling asks the question, Is the “Jesus” of Jesus Calling the biblical Jesus Christ, or is it a false christ deceiving many? Given the fact that millions of copies of Jesus Calling have already sold, the answer to that question needs to be found. Warren Smith gives us the documentation and biblical references needed to find that answer.
“For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.” (2 Corinthians 11:4)
