Giving Up god… to Find God: Breaking Free of Idolatry
Download Full Text
An exploration of the ways in which we genuflect to false gods, and what happens when we let them go and open ourselves to the experience of Love and Wisdom.
Kerry Walters unmasks the golden calves we have been taught to worship and enlightens us living in presence of Spirit. The false gods are:
The Genie god
The Patriot god
The By-the-Book god
The Designer god
Sunday School god
The more idols we remove from our interior shrines the more space we open up for the real God and spiritual values that make a difference in our lives. The tools are detachment and discrimination, alert attentiveness, patience, and trust. The benefit of reading this book is spiritual clarity and assurance. [From the publisher]
