Item description for When Godly People Do Ungodly Things: Arming Yourself in the Age of Seduction by beth moore...
Overview Based on her experiences and studies, Moore reveals the common denominator of those who are in danger of being seduced by Satan. "When Godly People Do Ungodly Things" is a guide to authentic repentance and restoration.
Publishers Description It is reported in the headlines, confessed in the pulpits, and hidden in the pews in churches around the world. The seduction of God's people by the deceiver is a tale as old as the garden, but we are always surprised when it happens. We must realize that Satan is a lion on the prowl and we are his prey.
Beth writes with a passion fueled by the Biblical warnings of the schemes of Satan's seductive activity and the broken-hearted concern of a teacher who receives countless letters from repentant Christians limping on the road to finding restoration. Delivering dire warnings to Christians to safeguard themselves against Satan's attacks, Beth also reveals how you can know if someone is vulnerable. Beth writes, "We, Christ's church, are in desperate need of developing His heart and mind in issues like these." She fears that often God is far more merciful than the Body of Christ is with the deeply repentant and those desperate to find their way home. "When Godly People Do Ungodly Things "will be a guide to authentic repentance and restoration.
From Publishers Weekly Beth Moore has emerged as a popular speaker and writer in Christian circles,
her Bible studies embraced by church groups across the country. Her latest
full-length book, When Godly People Do Ungodly Things: Finding Authentic
Restoration in the Age of Seduction, holds to her trademark conversational
writing style (including the overuse of italics and hyperbole). Its message
is disappointingly simplistic, choosing such easy targets as Internet
pornography as evidence for satanic seduction, and even using diagrams of
stick figures to prove her points. A New Voice in New Thought? Copyright

Spiritual armor Jan 6, 2007
Amazing book for anyone who has ever felt bomarded by or "stuck in the web" of satan. This book travels through how a Christian can fall into sin, how to healed, and how to renew fellowship with God and live a Godly life. This book has been amazing for my walk with God and I highly recommend it!
Make Yourself Read It Sep 10, 2006
You may have gotten this book and then found it difficult to read because it cuts to the core of our nature. That would be the enemy not wanting to be exposed in your life! Read it anyway and shed light on the darkness in the things we do (John 3). Thank you Beth for tackling this subject! Good book!

Fills an essential gap Jan 8, 2006
This is one of the most important books I've read in the past five years. I say it fills a gap because of the way it so clearly addresses the specific topic of spiritual "seduction." The anonymous reviewer of 3/26/02 did a good job of describing what that is and is not. In contrast to the willfully disobedient or rebellious person, the seduced person may by almost imperceptible steps to a spiritual disaster he could not have imagined could happen to him.
Moore is compassionate without being soft. She does not excuse the sin or the sinner, but her harsher words are for those who those who are ready to throw the first, second, and third stones.
The book is very practical in terms of the risk factors for being seduced, how to arm ourselves, how to get help from God and others when we have fallen, and how to be a godly helper to someone else in the situation.
As a missionary doctor with some background in counseling and with some member care responsibilities, I can say that this book (or something else like it, which doubtless exists though I don't know what) should be essential reading for pastors, counselors, lay leaders, missionaries, and anyone else with leadership and pastoral responsibilities. Beyond that, it would be valuable reading for anyone serious about his or her spiritual life.
We are all "works in process" May 8, 2005
People who get this book thinking it is going to explain away all problems may be disappointed.
For me, the value of it is working through the process of the questions and allowing the Holy Spirit to work in me through the Bible verses I read, copied, and meditated on. Her experiences and Biblical guidance have helped clarify for me the need for continual vigilance in my Christian walk.
I believe today's Christians are being bombarded on all sides and we often don't even realize the attack we are under. Then we wonder why we bear no fruit in our Christian walk.
We need to wake up and smell the coffee! We ARE under attack, and even more so if we are actively seeking to fulfill the mission that Christ has left us here to accomplish. Mostly, in today's world, we have been lulled into a false sense of security.
This workbook is not for everyone, but for those who are struggling with living a godly life or those who have been hurt and/or confused by ungodly actions of another believer, I believe there is help and healing in this study.
God is not finished with me yet Feb 25, 2005
Maybe circumstances in your life have led you down the unfortunate path of living with or working alongside another human being who professes to know God, yet he or she speaks and acts totally contrary to Biblical principles. Their behavior or speech does not mesh with any of your previous theological upbringing, and you just can't figure it out. Ms. Moore casts light on the subject with comments such as, "While all of us have the capability of departing into ungodliness, not all share the same degree of risk."
The book details specific steps to take if a person is personally involved in a downward spiral of sin, whether on the threshold of embarking in sinful behavior, in the midst, or after the fact. Ms. Moore minces no words and admits parts of the book not everyone will agree upon, but that's okay.
There is a poignant, hopeful theme evident throughout the pages: God doesn't make any junk...He's never finished with me...and I am a continual work in progress.
I, personally, can relate to Ms. Moore's original acknowledgments as she proclaims: "My Father, I will never understand the extravagant nature of Your grace and mercy. You continue to take the worst blights on my Christian track record and use them for good. If anyone has tested Romans 8:28, surely I did! I am proof You are true to Your Word."
If you're searching for answers to any of the above situations-reach for this book!
