New Christian Book By Denise Wilson
New Release Seven Words You Never Want To Hear: How To Be Sure You Won’t Challenges Professing Christians To Examine Themselves
(Caledon, ON) - There is no greater tragedy than for someone to go through their entire life thinking they are a Christian only to hear these seven fateful words at death: “I never knew you; depart from me” (Matt. 7:23).
A. W. Tozer said, “It is my opinion that tens of thousands, if not millions, have been brought into some kind of religious experience by accepting Christ and they have not been saved.” How can you be sure that your profession of faith is more than just words? Seven Words You Never Want to Hear explores the mystery of salvation through the Scriptures and personal stories.
Many repeat a sinner’s prayer, thinking that will guarantee them admittance into heaven. Author Denise Wilson says, “We aren’t saved by repeating a prayer. No one ever has been saved, or ever will be saved, apart from the conviction of sin, repentance, and true faith in the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ.” In this new release, Seven Words You Never Want to Hear: How to Be Sure You Won’t, Wilson takes a hard look at assumptions people make about becoming a Christian.
The book contrasts what the Bible actually says about becoming a Christian with popular thought. She writes for those who may have prayed a sinner’s prayer but whose lives do not reflect a commitment to Christ—and for those who love them and are deeply concerned for their souls. The book is also a challenge to mature Christians. The Apostle Paul challenges all professing Christians to examine themselves. “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test? (2 Cor. 13:5)
“The way a person lives give evidence of true faith but does nothing towards gaining salvation,” says Wilson. “The gospel changes everything—our beliefs, lifestyles, and priorities.” Lifestyle issues of greed, living for self, and what we love are held up against the biblical values of obedience, dying to self, and counting the cost, with reflective questions after each chapter.
What Others Are Saying
During an interview with Denise Wilson, radio host Chuck Crismier said this:
“Your book is the finest book dealing with these subjects that I have ever read. I have had 3,500 national Christian leaders on this program over the past 26 years, but as far as I’m concerned, this one is the best one dealing with this subject.”
