This short book is adapted from a chapter of “I Am Persuaded: Christian Leadership As Taught By Jesus.”

Jesus said, “Call no man on earth father, for you all have one Father who is in heaven.” Yet Paul called Timothy, Titus, and Onesimus his “sons” and sometimes used “father” language when addressing the churches. Was Paul contradicting Jesus?

Instead of cherry-picking scriptures, adapting extreme views, and reviling anyone who sees differently, we need to get to the heart of the issue. “Spiritual Fathers Or Brothers?” clears up the confusion and helps us to understand the heart of both Paul’s teaching and Jesus’ teaching. While acknowledging that Christian leaders should share in the father heart of God, it also highlights the unhealthy dynamics that result if we go beyond scripture in our emphasis on “fathering” young disciples.

The reader should have a more complete and balanced perspective by the end of this book, whether or not he fully agrees with the author’s conclusions.

This short book is partially adapted from a section of “The Power-And-Love Sandwich: Why You Should Seek God’s Face And His Hand.”

Have you heard warnings about “Kundalini in the church” and lying signs and wonders? Many Christians today are concerned about Satan appearing as an “angel of light.” Some teachers are promoting paranoia of deception in the body of Christ.

Yet there are two sides of discernment, and two sides of deception. True discernment not only perceives what is not of God, but also what is from God. Scripture doesn’t only warn against the deception of receiving Satan as an angel of light. It also warns against “teachings of demons” rejecting that which is good.

The Pharisees were some of the most deluded people in history. God. God himself came to them in the flesh, but they said he did his work by the power of the devil. Jesus then warned that those who blasphemed him would be forgiven, but those who blasphemed the Holy Spirit would never be forgiven. Attributing God’s work to the devil is the most serious kind of deception that a person can fall into.

Why are we so quick to imagine that anything supernatural happening must be from Satan? The Bible suggests that there are twice as many angels as demons. The KJV New Testament uses the word “signs” only six times in reference to demonic, lying signs and wonders. It uses it twenty-eight times in reference to signs and wonders from God!

This book examines the side of deception that most people seem to ignore. It addresses and refutes several of the most common fallacious arguments criticizing signs and wonders, and then points out how to discern what is from God as well as how to Biblically discern what is false.

Chester Kylstra
Set the stage for unhindered healing.

Rejection, depression, guilt, fear--evidence of spiritual bondage in today's world is rampant. The hurt is real, but so is the good news!

In this groundbreaking, classic work, Chester and Betsy Kylstra show how you can trace pain and woundedness back to four foundational sources. True, lasting restoration and healing take place by dealing with these four sources together in an integrated way, instead of as separate areas. They are

· release from ancestral sins and curses
· replacement of destructive beliefs with godly ones
· healing from emotional and spiritual pain
· deliverance from demonic oppression

This well-proven manual is designed for both personal recovery and ministry to others. In it, the Kylstras provide guiding Scriptures, step-by-step processes, self-inventories, visual aids, tables and real-life stories of people being restored through this integrated, fourfold approach.

You can live free! Become who you are meant to be, and help others do the same.

"I heartily recommend this book to all who would heal others or be healed themselves."--John Sandford, co-founder, Elijah House, Inc.

"An outstanding, life-changing book!"--Dr. Ché Ahn, senior pastor, HROCK Church; co-founder, Harvest International Ministry

"This book expresses the most balanced and workable ministry in the area of biblical healing that I have ever witnessed or experienced."--Dr. Bill Hamon, founder and bishop, Christian International Ministries Network

"The Kylstras' systematic teaching will restore your foundations to be truly free in Christ."--John Arnott, founding pastor, Catch the Fire
