Reviews - What do customers think about Whose Right It Is?
Excellent! Jan 28, 2007
"Whose Right It Is" has been one of the most influential books in my Christian walk. It takes head on all the commonly used scriptures used to support the "Rapture Theory". Why anyone hinges their walk on a theory when the truth is readily available I do not know. We have no excuse for following false doctrine. God is no longer winking at our ignorance. The Spirit of Truth has been shed upon us, and those who diligently seek will come to know. I seek truth. I pray God strips every shred of untruth that I may be harboring within myself. The Church will walk in the fullness of Jesus Christ when it completely walks in Truth. The problem with most is they are only trying to protect what they perceive as truth. They approach the Word in a way that they are trying to prove what they believe. Instead, we should approach the Truth always with an open heart and with humility, letting God unveil His Truth. There is always more to God. Seek the truth, not proof for the validity of the doctrines of man.
I highly recommend Whose Right It Is. I also highly recommend "The Three Prejudices" by Dr. Kelley Varner. It dispels the prejudices that are so prominent in most of what we call church. Every minister of the Gospel should give The Three Prejudices and Whose Right It Is a read.
ears to hear Dec 28, 2001
Kelley Varner has done his homework in this book. It is a watershed work for correctly understanding Bible prophecy. In view of orthodoxy, intellectual honesty, and spiritual truth, those who question the major points and premise of this volume, should themselves be questioned when all sides of these issues are clearly viewed. The author has no axe to grind and is not poised to build a kingdom on his theology or writing gift. The winds of popularity are not blowing this vessel into the port of the accolades and celebration of the multitudes. He is sailing through what appears to be a narrow channel but in reality is navigating a course through the River of Life. It examines and communicates what the Spirit of God has revealed to him as he endeavors to effectively share words of Truth. Any serious and honorable student of Bible prophecy will want to thoroughly study and digest this treatise.
Learn with an open mind. Sep 28, 2000
Kelley Varner more than adequately explores the very interesting possibilities that perhaps, I'll Fly Away isn't the only possible scenario.
In a manner that is totally supported by scripture, Kelley Varner picks apart the smallest details of dispensationalism and adequately points to the true nature of the scripture. To speak frankly, Kelley Varner makes a bold statement that Jesus isn't coming back any minute for a sick and dying church but that He is indeed coming back at some time for His mature, clean and holy bride.
To those who would scoff at this book, open your mind for just a moment. To those who would question Kelley Varner's reasoning on this, ask yourself one question. What does he have to gain by attempting to the reveal the truth in the scripture?
In all things, however, keep a stable and balanced view. Kelley Varner never once deviates from the bible in his supporting scripture and in fact uses the scripture, as it was written in the Greek, as the basis for the book.
If you want an alternative to the same old fear focused, 'rescue-mission' rapture, read this book.
A Fresh Challenge ! Jan 6, 1999
This indeed is a challenge to many, but such challenges are needful in this time of stale pie in the sky theology ! The purpose of the book is to show the aspect of God's Covenant with Christians. It is up to the openess of the reader to consider the content. It is also the very nature of humanity to embrace what the majority does, as if that determines truth. There is a historical look at the orgin of the rapture that fails to tickle the ears of main stream Christianity. However, the most important mention in the entire book is the constant focus on Jesus Christ ! The writer very well knows the importance of the centrality of Christ. This alone stands apart from the vast multitudes of those that are taken up with micro chips, a coming anti-christ, a one world government, a gospel based on speculation, a defeated life style with a someday quick zip out of here, and a evil report that is mixed with fear! The writer refers to the scriptures, shares a good report and mixes faith. The appealling factor comes at the end of the book in these words, "I beseech you. Don't beleive these things just because I or some other preacher have said them. Pick up your Bible. Read. Study. Think. Rethink. Then get mad enough to change. . . by giving your life and ministry totally to the Lord Jesus Christ, the only one "whose right it is" Maranatha !" Of course to give ourselves in this manner may have its cost. Nevertheless, without such challenges the christian walk may be nothing more than a repeated cycle of tradition. Many would do well to read this fresh challenge and ponder it before they let tradition rob them of the good report.
Covenant Theology from a Pentecostal viewpoint Dec 7, 1998
The book starts slowly but finally gets into meat in the last few chapters where it attempts to show the Covenant view of passages commonly referred to by Dispensationalists for the Rapture and Daniel's 70 weeks, etc.
As is typical with Covenant writers he slyly states that the word "rapture" does not occur in the Bible, but using the same reasoning the word "God" does not appear in the Bible either since "Raptus" occurs in the Latin Bible where the English uses "caught up." ("God" would only occur in an English translation). Being a Dispensationalist, I will let Mr Varner judge himself using quotes from his book:
P.132 "Good men almost become violent when Scofieldian dispensationalism is challenged (perhaps a hint of its spiritual source)."
Now compare his judgement with his own words in other places in the book:
p153 He calls Dispensationalism satan's "most effective tool" p206 He calls Disp. a part of "the lie" in Romans 1:25. p225 He calls Dispensationalists "the wicked". p275 He calls Disp. "the favorite teachings of the god of this world." p289 He calls Disp "another gospel."
Last time I checked, Disp. teaches salvation by grace apart from works as Galatians points out while Pentecostalism teaches works salvation and Covenant Theology teaches Law as a Rule of Life. I'll let the Bible judge who is teaching "another Gospel" here.
He points out that Dispensationalism started in the 1800s along with many cult groups but fails to mention that his own Pentecostalism started around the same time and that the former has done more for promoting true spiritual growth and soul winning than the latter will ever do.
Paul states in Eph 1:3 that our position in Christ is in heavenly places, not here on Earth. His position is easily refuted by Chafer, Ryrie, Newell, and others.
