Resolving Misunderstandings of the Exchanged Life, Revised & Expanded Second Edition
Maybe you've had some things that have puzzled you about the teaching that we who believe in Christ have been brought into a union with Him that changes our spiritual identity and gives us the opportunity to have Christ live through us. Or maybe you've talked about this doctrine to others, and they have misunderstood what you were saying.
This book describes fifteen of the most common misunderstandings of the Christ centered life and gives answers to these difficulties. You don't have to let perceived problems with this freeing and empowering message keep you from the benefits of walking with Christ. Let this practical volume resolve these problems.
More about this book:
Over the years I have received numerous questions about the message of the exchanged life, the teachings about a believer’s spiritual union with Christ and how he can bring us into further depth in our Christian walk. I have discovered that many of these questions are the result of misunderstandings of what is being taught or false assumptions coming from the questioner taking that teaching beyond what exchanged life teachers are saying. Sometimes there are real differences of opinion
To many believers in Christ the message is a new one, as it goes beyond forgiveness of sins and a home in heaven to an actual change in our spiritual identity and relationship with God that is dependent, intimate and empowering. This new message may contradict some of what many believers have been taught. These people, quite understandably, have sincere questions about the exchanged life. Others who are comfortable remaining “lukewarm” or legalistic will find this message difficult to accept.
Whatever the reason for the criticism, questioning or misunderstanding, this book is designed to address some of the more prominent issues.
