Live No Lies: Recognize and Resist the Three Enemies That Sabotage Your Peace
About this deal
But hear me loud and clear: Our war against the three enemies of the soul is not a war of guns and bombs. It’s not against other people at all. It’s a war on lies. And the problem is less that we tell lies and more that we live them; we let false narratives about reality into our bodies, and they wreak havoc in our souls. The Devil Because freedom without self-mastery is a disaster waiting to happen. Saint Augustine said it well: "Free choice is sufficient for evil, but hardly for good.” While Comer is referring to is the sexual liberation revolution of the 1960’s, his point spans beyond this example. I’ve always found it helpful to ask the question, “Does it work?” Our beliefs should not only make sense on paper; they must be tested in real life.
Live No Lies is brilliant, deep, scriptural, and will equip you to face the enemy and fight."-Jennie Allen, New York Times bestselling author of Get Out of Your Head But there is a dark side to these as well. In this sense, the flesh is basically our selfishness and rebellion against God’s rule, manifesting itself in sinful cravings and corrupt desires. Our animalistic appetites and self-gratifying pleasures may feel natural to the body, but they are fundamentally opposed to God’s ways. For those of you that felt like 6 episodes wasn't quite enough, this one is for you. Roberta Ahmanson is a brilliant expert on all things Church History. For context, she logged in for this remote interview with John Mark from a library of 20,000 books, all of which she's read ... Based on the premise that there is much to learn from the Church's history, John Mark and Roberta rewind to the culture of 5th century Rome to discuss the parallels between that moment and our own, and how Christians functioned in the midst of it.We make our decisions, and then our decisions make us. In the beginning we have a choice, but eventually, we have a character.” According to the author, the West is facing a spiritual apocalypse. Christians need survival strategies – and they can’t fight the battle alone.
Comer’s illustrations and phraseology are very US-based, and overall the book could be shorter, while still getting the main points across; in other words, parts of the book can be skimmed. But always be aware that there are gems here and that the overall thesis is vital and worth repeating until we really get the message.Secular society is getting so many things wrong. Take divorce as an example. Some people think that divorce represents liberation from the patriarchy – but the author believes that men benefit from divorce much more than women. Divorce also has a devastating impact on children; it affects their ability to form healthy, intimate relationships as adults.
