In “Toxic: Nine Attitudes That Will Destroy Your Life, Family, or Church” (published by WestBow Press), author and pastor Ronnie Williams identifies nine attitudes that are poisonous to a person’s spirituality as well as church congregations as a whole and offers advice and knowledge on how to overcome these attitudes.
“Living a life with toxic attitudes is a choice,” writes Williams, “but God can help us to change. We don’t have to live frustrated by the consequences of these attitudes. This book can indeed help people experience and walk in a spiritual freedom that will be refreshing and set them up for success in life and ministry.”
“Toxic” tackles nine attitudes that hinder spiritual growth, including anger, gossip and judgmental behavior. Williams cites useful passages from the Bible as well as wisdom that encourages what he calls “preventative maintenance,” stopping these attitudes before they have a chance to fester.
“‘Toxic’ will help readers through a process of identifying the attitudes in their lives and confronting them, allowing the Holy Spirit to help them become free of these attitudes,” says Williams.
An excerpt from “Toxic”:
"Now, toxins are equal opportunity destroyers. Whether you are a Pastor, Lay Leader, Elder, Board Member, Worship Leader, Guitar Player, Piano Player, Drummer, Sunday School Teacher, Children’s worker, Greeter, or any other “er” in the church right down to the Pew Sitter; the problem of “Toxic Issues” applies to us all. We all must be proactive in dealing with them.”
