God Doesn’t Condemn You, Neither Do I by T.K. Ware is a wonderful look at God’s mercy and forgiveness of sin. The authors introduce readers to the idea that as Christians we may condemn ourselves for our sins, but God offers forgiveness through the blood of Jesus. Adequately used scriptures are referenced to remind Christians that if they sin they have an advocate in Christ Jesus our Lord, who is able to sympathize with our human weaknesses. The book also teaches how one can learn to walk in the Spirit and to avoid the pitfalls of sin, and not to give into temptation.
A powerful book on the concept that God does not condemn those who put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ to forgive sins. This book is well written and timely. It carries a message that is an important one for all Christian believers to read and learn from. It offers a positive approach to dealing with and overcoming sin. This is truly a wonderful book that no church library or Christian should be without. I truly enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading other books by this authors. I highly recommend God Doesn’t Condemn You, Neither Do I to Christians everywhere.
In this follow-up to The Pastor’s Daughter, Ebony, the main character, provided the necessary background information concerning the relationship between she & Minister Franco. While it started off innocently, I do believe Franco had an underlying plan the entire time. From his initial approach with stories of his altercation with David, to his wife & their “dying relationship”, Ebony became the perfect target to discuss his unhappiness. Throughout the story, I could see the quicksand path in which Ebony was taking. While she was an adult and was no way forced, her caring & unsuspecting nature was to her disadvantage. Her family situation at the time seemed to make her more vulnerable & easier to influence. I felt this story was realistic & relatable in discussing various situations that could take place in church settings. This part was well written & easy to follow. I would like to thank T.K. Ware for my gifted copy of such an enlightening story.
A very transparent account of Ebony’s plight of how she got entangled with a married minister at her Father’s church. The path of how she allowed the desires of her flesh to sanction her to a life filled with misery and depressing thoughts. She clearly knew the ways of the Lord but the door was opened and the enemy crept in and the temptation became too much. I love this author’s work. He tackles realistic issues affecting the Body of Christ head on with the Scriptures. This was a real eye opener!
How could I have allowed myself to be so naïve? Women, please don’t allow a man to inject you with lies camouflaged in truth. I’m not a home-wrecker, really I’m not. In the beginning, he told me that he and his wife were separated and that they only drove to church together to keep people out of their business. He went on to say that they were going to eventually get a divorce. I was so stupid to believe his lies. The fact that he was a minister in the church made me hold tight to every word he said.
At first he was like a friend, a mentor of some sort. Our conversations were holy in the beginning, but over time the holiness of our dialogue evaporated like a puddle of water in Texas’ heat. I was attracted to him and in that attraction; I lost sight of what’s important: my relationship with God and another thing that I cherished, my celibacy.
“This is not a list of events in chronological order, moreover, it is a collection of life-altering events that have created me in to the woman that I am today. This is not written to glory sin, but to show the power of deliverance. Because of my past, I cherish each rhythm of my heartbeat as a gift from God. I haven’t always been grateful. As a matter of fact, I’ve been disrespectful to God, my family, and myself…..” -E’ Keturah Scandret
