…the Church so easily turns from the enormous gift of a relationship with God, and in turning to their own ‘selfish interests and vein conceits,’ looks and acts no differently from the secular community.
OLYMPIA, Wash. (PRWEB) August 31, 2012
Bev Forrest’s new book “The Royal Interview: Hurt in the Church” (published by WestBow Press) offers readers four allegories designed to show how faith remains important, even when the church may act selfishly. By creating the example of a fictitious monarch, she shows God’s love for his subjects.
It is His Majesty’s desire that His subjects walk in communion with Him, living joyously and responsively to their King. Tragically, however, His Majesty reveals that much of His Kingdom is consumed by fights and quarrels, discordant notes, division and self-centered motives. Being touched by “selfish desires and vain conceits,” many Kingdom subjects leave His Majesty’s Kingdom embittered and broken.
Forrest knows her book’s utility will be evident to believers, she says, because “…the Church so easily turns from the enormous gift of a relationship with God, and in turning to their own ‘selfish interests and vein conceits,’ looks and acts no differently from the secular community.”
