Présentation de l'éditeur

 40 Things provides parents with a concise and powerful resource intended to help educate and inform their teen-age/young-adult children on a number of what I as a father consider to be the most important spiritual/biblical truths on a number of vital topics, i.e., life, marriage, truth, the law, the purpose of government, salvation. 40 Things is primarily intended to combat/refute the predominant and popular teachings and philosophies of secular humanism, post-modernism, moral relativism and universalism so pervasive today (sadly even in many Christian circles) and to empower/encourage the next generation to think and act biblically. I am also hoping that the same parents who purchase the book for their kids will also purchase it for any unsaved, skeptical or backslidden family/friends to lead them to the truth of the Gospel. The book has already received rave reviews and endorsements from many Christian leaders and public figures such as Ray Comfort (who wrote the Foreword), R.C. Sproul Jr., Dr. Michael Milton, E. Ray Moore, Dr. Ted Baehr Alveda King (MLK's niece) and J.C. Watts.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Small book, very BIG ideas. Back to the basics, since our complicated world sucks. 23 septembre 2014
Par Julie Roe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book is a smaller book than I expected. At first, I expected more details under most of the 40 things. There is the dreaded white space on some pages! But, when I s.l.o.w.e.d down, focused on what I was reading, thought about having these discussions at the dinner table with my 3 kids, was intrigued.

As I progressed through the book, I started making additional notes to use when the topic captured a child's imagination. I can see using this as a launching pad to start with each point...each point has entire books written about it that we can send our kids to, but if they get "the main point" they will stay on track to live as honorable citizens, and as witnesses to an unsaved world deperate for holiness & righteousness in action. No where else have I seen these points all together.

We are making this our evening table family discussion. It is profoundly simple. S.L.O.W...D.O.W.N and learn as a family. Thanks, Gregg Jackson, for a terrific book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Teach Your Children Well 16 septembre 2014
Par Author Dave - Publié sur Amazon.com
Gregg Jackson has a heart for our next generation. I've known Gregg for almost 7 years, and through hundreds of emails and hours of phone conversations, I've come to know Gregg Jackson's heart for children. This book is a work of passion and the 40 wisdom nuggets he has compiled will not only bless your children and grandchildren, it will also bless you.

As I had the great privilege of reading the book before its release, I kept thinking to myself that I wished I had this book when my children were young. While my wife and I endeavored to to raise Proverbs 22:6 children, Gregg has written simple truths that you can read to your children over a 40 day journey that will set them on the path to a righteous and productive life.

The number forty has great biblical significance. It can mean a time of testing and trial, but it also represents a generation. Forty also signifies spiritual rebirth and Gregg's book, if used as a primer for children, will aid in the rebirth of this next generation.

I look forward to spending time with my grandson and sharing the truths of this wonderful new book. I enthusiastically recommend you buy this book to share with your children and grandchildren.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I'm using Jackson's book as a checklist... 16 septembre 2014
Par Bob Enyart - Publié sur Amazon.com
We still have three of our sons at home, so I've begun putting my kids' initials in each of the 40 sections, as reminders of which of the boys I've already discussed each particular important topic with, and who I'm still looking forward to talking to about that vital issue. The author has identified 40 crucial topics that are a must to discuss and that lead to great conversation. Thanks Gregg Jackson!

40 Things Book Review

While I agree that there are good things to teach our children before we die, it's far better to die to this life and loose everything to gain Jesus Christ (Mark 8:34-38). A living book teaches far more to our children and outlasts this paperback.

Chapter 1 is titled, "Seek First the Kingdom of God". Jackson (the author) quotes Matthew 6:33: "Seek first the Kingdom and His righteousness and all other things will be added unto you" [end of quote, page 1]. According to the context of this passage, the "all other things" are "food", "drink", and "clothing" (v. 31).

Jackson writes, God has promised those who are His children that, when we place our faith in Him and make Jesus our Lord and Savior, He will add everything else that we need in our lives, and that He will give us above and beyond what we could ever imagine. [end of quote; page 1]

Jackson, misuses Matthew 6:33 to uncontextually promise a prosperity gospel to pass on to our children where salvation guarantes that God "will give us above and beyond what we could ever imagine" [end of quote]. There is no such garantee found for those who live in the church age. The Apostle Peter said, "But Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!” Acts 3:6

James wrote: "Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him?" James 2:5

Believers are guaranteed, however, all spiritual blessings in Christ. The material blessings that some of us enjoy are not guaranteed and God can take them away should he chose so. Jesus said, “..Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” Luke 12:15

For chapter 18, Jackson writes, "If you are a Christian, God has forgiven you for all your sins (past, present, future) and given you eternal life." [end of quote; page 37].

There are no passages in Scripture that make such a claim. We are forgiven of former sins when we enter the family of God (2 Peter 1:9). If his argument is true, there would be no need to confess our sins as they have all been forgiven (1 John 1:9).

Furthermore, Jesus stated that in order to have forgiveness of our sins we MUST forgive others in the present. Jesus said: "For if [conditional] you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, 15 but if [conditional] you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." Matthew 6:14-15

The author (to his credit) seems to admit (a 180 degree turn) that we must forgive others in order to have our sins forgiven, when he wrote: "God promises us that when we forgive others, we too will experience the refreshment of His peace and forgiveness (Luke 6:37)." [end of quote; page 37].

While there are some good points in this book, reason #38 (eternal security), does not pass the "muster" of Scripture.

For the doctrine of eternal security, Jackson misleadingly writes, "some self-professing Christians will tell you that you can lose your salvation and that keeping your salvation depends on how you act in this life." [end of quote, pg 79].

Jackson uses a dishonorable tactic. He misrepresents believers such as myself who believe in the necessity of perseverance. He calls us "self-professing Christians". The church has been divided on the issue of eternal security for hundreds of years. Was the Apostle Paul then a "self-professing Christian" because he believed it was necessary to remain in the faith? Consider the clarity of his words: "and by which you are being saved, IF you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain." 1 Cor. 15:2; (ESV). See also Colossians 1:21-23.

Secondly, he further misrepresents those who believe endurance is necessary by claiming we teach that salvation is dependent on "how you act in this life" [end of quote]. Salvation has always been by faith and by God's grace. It is not an earned reward. There isn't one verse in Scripture that makes salvation a "completed action" the moment one enters the family of God. See Acts 2:47; 1 Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 2:15; 1 Peter 2:2; 1:8-9. Matthew 5:20; 6:15; 7:13; 10:32-33; Luke 8:13, etc. The title of "self-professing Christians" is dishonest and so is his "straw-man" argument that we teach salvation by performance.

He goes on and writes, "You had nothing to do with your salvation, because it was a free gift that God gave to you by His divine mercy and love." [end of quote; page 79]. This is more falsehood mixed with truth. While the author is correct that salvation is a free gift and by "His divine mercy and love" [end of quote], none of us would be saved unless we believe —a volitional choice. The most famous verse in the Bible is conditional on ongoing faith. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever BELIEVES in him should not perish but HAVE eternal life." John 3:16 Those who "believes" [ongoing requirement] "have" [in the present] "eternal life".

Jackson is correct that salvation is "a free gift". However, we need to define this gift as God does. Our God is sovereign and often defines things differently. He gave us His Word to refine our wrong thinking. God doesn't define the gift of salvation as a one-time action. Consider the clarity of the following verses and notice how God defines the gift of salvation as an ongoing reality for those in the faith: "and are justified [ongoing action] by his grace as a gift [ongoing gift], through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received [ongoing] by FAITH" Rom. 3:24-25b.

Please consider another passage that describes our salvation as an ongoing gift: "For by grace you [have been] saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast." (Eph. 2:8-9). I purposefully included the words "have been" inside brackets for emphasis. These two words are not found in the underlying Greek. They were added by translators as helping words to describe the ongoing action of the word "saved" in the Greek.

The Koine Greek perfect tense describes an action that occurred in the past (salvation here) that has remained true up to the present —this is why the translators inserted the words "have been" into this verse. A horizontal line —from salvation to the present time, could illustrate the perfect tense. Here is a paraphrase to illustrate this verbal action: "For by grace you [have been saved from the past to the present time] through [ongoing] faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift [ongoing gift] of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast."

The verse above clearly, and undeniably presents the gift of salvation as an ongoing reality for those in the faith and not a one-time gift as the author alludes to in his book. This verse does not say that our ongoing salvation will not have works. However, its clear —our works do not save us.

He goes on to write, "your free gift of salvation was just that ... Free" [end of quote; page 79]. The gift of salvation cost God His only Son. Does receiving this gift cost us anything? Jesus said, "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy [a cost], and my burden is light.” Mat. 11:28-30. The yoke of Jesus is "easy" and the "burden is light". The cost of admission (ongoing faith) into the Kingdom doesn’t earn us one second in heaven. Salvation is by genuine faith in Jesus Christ. Real faith acts because it cannot help itself.

Jesus said, "Enter [requires action] by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads [over time] to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. 14 For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads [over time] to life, and those who find it are few. Mat. 7:13-14. It costs something to follow Jesus Christ.

Jesus also said, "... Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become [an ongoing process] like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven." Mat. 17:3. It cost something to enter the Kingdom of God. Satan's imitation is an easy "believism" where one can have an instant "completed-action" salvation and then optionally live the "wages of sin".

Finally, the author writes, "God's Word is clear that once you place your faith in Jesus, you are saved forever: My sheep hear [present tense; ongoing action] my voice, and I know [present tense; ongoing action] them, and they follow [present tense; ongoing action] me. 28 I give them [those who "hear" and "follow" Christ in the present] eternal life, and they [those who "hear" and "follow" Christ in the present] will never perish, and no one will snatch them [those who "hear" and "follow" Christ in the present] out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them [those who "hear" and "follow" Christ in the present] to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them [those who "hear" and "follow" Christ in the present] out of the Father’s hand. 30 I and the Father are one. [end of quote; page 79; I used a different version; quotes in brackets are my own].

The passage above is probably the most twisted passage used by eternal security proponents. How ironic —it clearly teaches conditional security. This passage in an encouragement to persevere in the faith! Please "hear" and "follow" Jesus Christ. His "burden" is "light" his "yoke" is "easy".

Thanks for reading this review. Your feedback is welcomed :)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gregg did an amazing job sharing Spiritual Truths that all kids AND adults ... 22 septembre 2014
Par Cindy Cunningham - Publié sur Amazon.com
Gregg did an amazing job sharing Spiritual Truths that all kids AND adults need to be grounded in. Each chapter was clear, simple, and to the point. I loved how Gregg began several chapters with, " The world says;" reminding us of the influences the world pushes on our children that are opposite of God's best for us. This is an easy read. Many chapters are less than a page long. This would be a great book to give any family, no matter what age their children are.
