Could many churchgoing Christians be getting a diluted Christianity-one that diminishes the loving, giving, personal God who provides the believer everything in life? Author Steve McVey passionately but unwittingly taught from the pulpit the very lies he now exposes. Forthrightly but humbly, he shows how pastors and churches can end up distorting scriptural truths because of their preconceptions. Opening up the Scriptures freshly, Steve examines typical problems such as Leaving out half of the truth: "Becoming a Christian means having your sins forgiven." (We also are made alive!) Using "shorthand" that promotes an unbiblical view: "Our sins are under the blood of Jesus." (Far better, they've been taken away!) Confusing our role with God's: "Salvation is giving your life to Christ." (More important, He gives His life to us!) Readers will see that God's undiluted truth is always best...and brings a fulfilling, close relationship with Him.
