Reviews - What do customers think about How To Listen To God?

Based On Bad Reasoning / Logic  Jun 23, 2006
This is a list of the bad reasoning in this book:

1) On page 9 he says, "if our relationship with him is a one way trip and the Lord Jesus Christ, then there isn't much fellowship." The problem with that is that only applies to non-Christians, Scripture however teaches that the Holy Spirit does communicate with our spirit and intercedes on behalf of it. Furthermore he implies that if there is no audible communication or extra-biblical communication that we aren't fellowshipping with God, however that isn't what Scripture teaches. According to the Christian Scholar and educator James Strong (author of the famous book Strong's Concordance), fellowship means:

1. fellowship, association, community, communion, joint participation, intercourse
a) the share which one has in anything, participation
b) intercourse, fellowship, intimacy

2) He said, "The second reason God still speaks today is that we need his definite and deliberate direction for our lives" yet strangely, Charles says that the Bible is direction for our lives. But is the Bible not deliberate or definite? It's NOT accidental and indistinct is it?

3) He said, "I realized that God was trying to get my attention through my body, but I wasn't listening." And what's his evidence that God was trying to say, "Hey Charles you feel worn out because I want you to rest and stop talking about me." That's not a sentence in the book but I say it to make a point. Charles doesn't give any evidence as to how he knew. But then goes on to say, "after I spent several weeks fasting and seeking to know the mind of the Lord" does anyone see anything wrong with that? I can: You can know the mind of the Lord from Scripture, the whole book shows how God thinks and what how he wants us to live. He then says, "I had been rather restless in my spirit and knew God was up to something but I didn't know exactly what." Again, what's his evidence that God was "up to something". That sentence also implies God ceases to have control over things, wrong, as Scripture teaches, God is always in control, he doesn't stop now and then (and the rest on the seventh day was him resting from CREATING, not controlling.)

4) He then said, "Then one night, out of desperation, I cried out to God, asking his purpose." Besides that being a badly worded sentence (God doesn't have a purpose, he always existed, no one created him, but obviously Charles meant what God's purpose for him was), he claims he doesn't know God's purpose (for Charles.) Hello? This is what God says, "Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man." - Ecclesiastes 12:13, and what commandments? Love the lord your God with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself, and to "Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction." - 2 Timothy 4:2. There, that's our purpose in life. But Charles isn't content, no, he's shows he's full of anxiety.

5) After that sentence Charles said, "God replied quickly and bluntly, 'I am going to move you.' I said, 'When?' In a split second the word September flashed across my mind, and immediately my burden was lifted..." Well it sure would be lifted if you felt you finally got what you were looking for.

6) He then said, "God revealed Himself, not because I was seeking a vision or a dream, but because I was seeking his mind." Well, so, Charles sought his mind but got a VISION of "Semptember", and so Charles contradicted himself. So the "mind of God" was on Charles moving in September, and this is what Charles was dying over and fasting? Wow, that's really deep. Does Scripture give any examples of people going nuts like this in Scripture? NOPE, just the opposite, they were given, without asking, God's word or what they asked for.

7) He then said, "It was a vision" see, he admits it was a vision "nevertheless, it was something God used to convince me He was involved in the business at hand." Once again Charles shows forgetfulness that God is always involved, always in control, already told us how to live.

8) Then, on page 15 he says someone asked him how much he was willing to sell his property for, and claims that God said to him, "Don't answer that" and that he later settled on a price for it and said, "I feel that the outcome was the one that pleased God." So, Charles, assumed "move" meant move his property to live somewhere else, not move to a hotel for a few days to preach the word. He FELT not KNEW that what happened was what God meant by move. Well that is really assuring isn't it, to be told to do what cults do, to merely rely on your heart and a guess.

9) Charles also claims in this book that you can know God's will by circumstances (which is a seemingly common teaching used by many good pastors unfortunately.) The problem with that teaching is that it is only true if Scripture refers to the circumstances, for example specific signs, but if you see 10 red cars in a row, what is God saying by that, that he wants you to buy ten red cars?

Does it say anything about God audibly saying anything to a person's physical body, or chatting with him? No, because that isn't what it is, and God does not say to seek to "hear / listen" to him in such a way. It amounts to fortune telling of a sort.
 
An Amazing Book on a Very Difficult Subject  May 24, 2006
Charles Stanley delivers an excellent guide for everyday Christians.

Deeply rooted in God's Word he explores the Bible and shares personal testimonies on finding out God's will for our life.

This is one of the very best books written on this subject... and this subject can actually mean the diferrence between success and failure for a Christian.

Get this book, study it, and study the Word of God. Knowing the Word of God, the Bible, is actually one the most accurate ways to know what God thinks about an issue. Charles Stanley adds more insight into areas like, being in peace in your spirit, having good counsel and so much more... in the end if you seek the Lord's will, you will know, but knowing how to pray and where to look for his will will help you in your journey.

Five Stars... definitely worth every penny and even more.

Dr. Stanley will learn you how to listen to His word  Jul 13, 2005
I'm just finishing reading this book. I've been reading this book as a read along with the Bible. On a daily basis of reading the Bible and "How to listen to God" I was made to feel like I was in better understanding of the word. I learned to take the word by the letter. And, listen to Him. This was all accomplished by following what Dr. Stanley says in this book. It's a must read.
 
Encouragement to Listen to God  Dec 8, 2004
Contrary to an earlier review, Dr. Stanley does not profess to be the only speaker for Jesus Christ, instead, he encourages the reader to listen to Jesus Christ.

The chapter's contents are as follows:

1. Is God Still Talking?
2. God's Goal in Communicating
3. How God Gets Our Attention
4. Identifying the Voice of God
5. Factors That Determine How God Communicates
6. Are You Listening?
7. Sitting Before the Lord
8. Your Spiritual Mind Set
9. Hindrances to Hearing
10. Listening and Obeying
11. The Life That Listens - A Well-Built Life

Personally, I'd rather listen to the Holy Spirit any day - He is infinitely wiser than any human being, including Deepak Chopra!

Read and be encouraged to listen to the Holy Spirit - God wants a relationship with you more than you do with Him and He will speak if you only listen! The book serves as an excellent guide to point the reader to Jesus Christ.

Highly recommended!
 
Yes, this is a Christian interpretation....  Aug 18, 2003
Before I came to know the wonderous glory of our God (Yahweh) and his son Jesus Christ (Yahshua), I would have seen this book as narrow minded and harsh. But each time God makes his presence known to me I am one step closer to understanding the glory that awaits those who are brave enough to be loyal Him and No Other. This book is so loving in its careful interpretation of biblical passages relating specifically to our personal relationship with God and Christ. I truly feel that Mr Stanley was divinely touched in its creation. For anyone who desires the "TRUE" path I HIGHLY recommend this book! Blessings to all. Thank you Charles for your hard work and good ear!
