    Christians: which authors do you subscribe to?

    Are you more of a Max Lucado, Philip Yancey, Ravi Zaccharias, Joel Osteen, Bruce Wilkinson, Kay Arthur, Elizabeth Elliot, Barbara Johnson - kind of person?

    none that you mention teach scriptural truth.   They all teach perverted "church of men" doctrines of devils.    They do a good job though of doing exactly what the original apostles warned us to beware of.  False doctrines that tickle the ears for those that do not learn scripture for themselves.
    1 Peter 4:17, 2 Peter 2,  1John 4, 2 John 7-11  and many more

      Oh, I disagree on 2 of those authors. I have found Yancey and Zaccharias very scripturally sound.  Osteen and Wilkinson are too commercial for me - I have to doubt anything that makes it in the top 10 of NYTimes best sellers!!  Meh to the others.

      I stand behind my original post.     None of them understand what new testament Christianity is.    And they all are supporters of the" apostate church system of men"  which God detests

      Ravi Zaccharias is not a false teacher. He speaks the truth and is also a great apologist. Most of the others are false teachers and the rest I've never heard of.
      I love listening to John Piper, RC Sproul, Matt Chandler, and Francis Chan.

      I like Ravi Zaccharias, as well, and the few Philip Yancey books I've read were pretty spot on.  (I've read Piper and Sproul, too, but haven't heard of Chandler or Chan.)  The rest on my list are ones I found "too popular" aka as NO WAY!

      Absolutely! "The world loves their own." Chandler and Chan are fantastic and godly men. I highly recommend looking them up on YouTube. smile
