This book is about exposing Satan's lie that everything is foreordained by God. Or put another way, everything happens for a reason.
What would be Satan’s purpose for infiltrating the church with this lie? To keep us from our blessings by doing nothing and waiting on God to do everything in our lives, and also so that we blame God when things go wrong rather than take personal responsibility for our actions. We are, after all, free will agents.
If everything were foreordained by God then life is nothing but a big chess game and we are but pawns on the board. But who is God’s opponent in this game? It can’t be Satan because if everything is foreordained by God then Satan is nothing more than a pawn himself.
If you believe this teaching then you believe that every child that is molested is molested because God foreordained it, and the person doing the molesting cannot be held accountable for his actions because he’s only doing what God planned for him to do.
Why then did Jesus die on the cross to forgive us of our sins? Who’s sins were they if everything is foreordained by God? How can God hold a person accountable for their actions if their actions were planned by Him for some greater cosmic purpose beyond our understanding?
If you let go of traditional thinking and let God speak to your heart about this matter, you’ll see how Satan has hoodwinked many into believing this lie out of the pit of hell that has cost us many, many blessings from a loving Father who wants nothing more than good for us.
