Marengo, Ill. (PRWEB) April 17, 2007
Ed Mrkvicka's "Be Not Deceived," a book that challenges the modern interpretive understanding of salvation, has received another exceptionally positive review.
Mrkvicka, a nationally recognized expert in the field of banking, the stock market, and personal finance, is the author of 8 published books on finance from major publishers and the banking expert for Boardroom Reports. More importantly, as it pertains to his new book, he is a life-long Bible student and lay minister.
Mrkvicka says, "God's Word states repeatedly that many who believe they have accepted the gift of salvation, actually have not. Instead, they have been deceived into believing a cheap secular grace that says God's children can sin without consequence, when they cannot."
Prior to the review from Active Christian Media (ACM), "Be Not Deceived" was praised by Write Field Services: "The book, 'Be Not Deceived,' offers Christians a guide to truly accepting the gift of eternal salvation."
Said The Writer's Edge: "The reader will become engaged and compelled to keep reading. This is an interesting book."
Added Author's Choice Reviews: "A thoughtful and well-written call back to biblical Christianity and Christ."
And by KIRKUS: "The book is well-written…engaging…thought-provoking."
Writing for ACM, F.W. Schultz states: "The book under review here contains an abundance of Scriptural quotations which clearly refute the 'easy believism' notion which has wrought enormous harm to contemporary Christianity by claiming that one can receive salvation from Christ without obeying the commandments of Christ.
"Be Not Deceived" is an apt title for this book because of its stern warnings against believing the Satanic lie of antinomianism, which promotes sin among Christians by getting them to believe they need not obey God's law. Gaining victory through refuting Satanic lies also plays a prominent role in gaining victory over sin by Christians who do want to obey God, as Neil Anderson showed in "The Bondage Breaker." Both these books show how devastating Satanic lies can be and that clear courageous Scriptural thinking is needed to defeat them and gain victory."
