Announcement Of The New Christian Living Book, CrossCurrents Making Sense of the Christian Life by Harry James Fox
I wanted to make the Christian community aware of the new Christian living book, CrossCurrents Making Sense Of The Christian Life by Harry James Fox that enlightens Christians on subjects that will help them decipher new-age doctrines and compare them against the Word of God for a deeper understanding of the scriptures.
Many Christians go back and forth from one new Biblical concept or doctrine to another because they haven’t taken the time to read the scriptures and know true Biblical doctrine. I remember many years ago when a brilliant young man announced in our young adult Sunday school class that he had come up with his own doctrine of Biblical faith based upon “Doubting Thomas” from the Bible, John 20:25. He was extremely proud of himself.
As it happened, Jesus appeared to some of the disciples after He had been raised from the dead. Thomas, however, was not with them the first time. John 20:25 says, “So the other disciples told him, ‘We have seen the Lord!’ But he [Thomas] said to them, ‘Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it.'”
Eight days later, Jesus appeared once again before His disciples. …”A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you!’ Then he said to Thomas, ‘Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.’ Thomas said to him, ‘My Lord and my God!’ Then Jesus told him, ‘Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed’ (John 20:26-29).
For reference, Doubting Thomas was one of the 12 disciples in the Bible. Another name for Thomas was Didymus. He wasn’t one of the more well known disciples, but he was popular enough to earn the nickname “Doubting Thomas.” He was given this label because he simply did not believe that Jesus had risen from the dead until He saw Christ with His own eyes, rather than believe in the resurrection by faith. It was this unbelief that Jesus spoke against that the young man I have referenced in this article had based his “new doctrine of faith” upon to share with our class and ultimately the church. I took a stand to call it false doctrine, but I was out numbered. Everyone looked at me as if I were too ignorant to get the point he was making, so I left the church looking for people who desired the true Word, rather than cerebral conclusions for the true meaning of scripture.
In author Harry Jame’s book, CrossCurrents, Making Sense Of The Christian Life, he has taken the time to research popular books which have come to their own conclusions about the scriptures in order to prove how great they are rather than how great God is. According to 1 Corinthians 2:14, man cannot understand the things of God without the spirit of God.
The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
CrossCurrents Making Sense Of The Christian Life will help you look at the scriptures according by the Spirit of God. This new Christian living book gives a bold critique of contemporary acceptance of the declining Christian ethic which has given way to a lower standard for Christian scripture and understanding of God from a Biblical point-of-view instead of man’s interpretation.
The issues James addresses are pinpointed with clarity in order to provide Christians with a great understanding in those areas of their lives where they need to strengthen their relationship with God.
