"Lighthouse Trails has recently contracted with author Warren B. Smith for his new book,'Another Jesus' Calling, a biblical analysis and critique of Sarah Young's book, Jesus Calling.Because millions of readers (most of them proclaiming Christians) are turning to Jesus Calling for messages and inspiration they believe are from Jesus Himself, a careful and responsible examination of Sarah Young's book is prudent and necessary. In doing so, we ask this question, is Sarah Young's 'Jesus' the Jesus of the Bible, or is it a false Christ, of which the Bible warns many shall come in the last days? (Luke 21:8). When former New Ager Warren B. Smith read Jesus Calling, he became greatly concerned, finding it troubling to see a number of New Age practices and concepts being presented as completely normal for Christians. Even more troubling, there were no warnings or disclaimers about what was being introduced. By the end of the book, Jesus Calling and its 'Jesus' had subtly, and not so subtly, introduced occult/New Age channeling, spiritual dictation, creative visualization, meditation, divine alchemy, co-creation with God, and practicing the presence like it was everyday Christian fare. New Age terms and concepts were brought into the messages like they were no big deal. And added to this were indirect references to a pantheistic poet and two classic New Age books, along with a hearty endorsement of God Calling--the channeled book that inspired Sarah Young to try and receive her own personal messages from Jesus. 'For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him' (2 Corinthians 11:4)"
