From the book:

NOTE TO THE READER

As former members of the New Age movement, my wife Joy and I have spent the last thirty-three years actively warning about the deceptive teachings of the New Age/New Spirituality that have progressively crept into the church. For the last ten years, to offset the spiritual heaviness that often accompanies this kind of ministry, I would study, compile, and then arrange certain Scriptures around specific themes that would provide my wife and I with encouragement and spiritual uplift. Almost as an afterthought, these personal studies became small booklets that were made available to share with others. I used the theme “through it all” for each of the booklets, hoping people reading them would find the same scriptural encouragement we had received from them.

In writing these “through it all” booklets, Joy and I knew we had to be prepared to face the testing that would likely come with such a project. But little did we know that the testing would unfold as it did. Yet, we have marveled at how the Lord has sustained us and carried us through this difficult period.

Over the last year and a half, we had to cut down and remove well over a hundred dead trees on our property that had become casualties of a recent four-year drought. Then one year ago today, we were suddenly displaced from our home-—and remain displaced as of this writing—by a destructive house fire that also resulted in the deaths of four of our beloved cats. Living in a number of different locations since the fire—many of them motels—we still await the restoration of our home. Adding to this and a number of other challenging events, I underwent three unexpected emergency surgeries after a life that had been virtually free of any medical concerns whatsoever.

As a result of all of these trying circumstances, we soon found ourselves reading our own “through it all” booklets for encouragement and support—Trusting God Through It All, Standing Fast Through It All, Praising God Through It All, along with all the other booklets. And they have given us immeasurable comfort and strength during this demanding time. Now combined in one book, I pray these carefully selected scriptural compilations will provide you with the same degree of comfort and strength they have given us.
God’s Word is truly awesome and encouraging, and oh so necessary, as we all endeavor to keep pressing on—through it all.

—Warren B. Smith

Expanded Second Edition of “Another Jesus” Calling Now Available

Aug 30th, 2016 Posted in new releases, PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT, Publishing News | Comments Off on Expanded Second Edition of “Another Jesus” Calling Now Available

AJC-2ND-COVER-FINAL-sIf you have been trying to warn loved ones about the dangers of reading Jesus Calling, Warren B. Smith’s Expanded Second Edition of “Another Jesus” Calling is the answer to doing this. This new expanded edition is now available through Lighthouse Trails and includes four new important appendices:

  1. “Changing Jesus Calling: Damage Control for a False Christ””
  2. “The New Age Implications of Jesus Calling
  3. “10 Scriptural Reasons Jesus Calling is a Dangerous Book”
  4. Serious Concerns about the Jesus Calling Devotional Bible

To order the Expanded Second Edition of “Another Jesus” Calling, click here.

These new appendices are from Warren Smith’s booklets of the same names. They document and explain the changes Thomas Nelson did to their big-selling book Jesus Calling after Smith’s original edition of “Another Jesus” Calling was released in late 2014. They also give 10 Scriptural reasons why Jesus Calling is dangerous, reasons that simply cannot be refuted. And they lay out how Jesus Calling has many New Age implications that cannot be ignored. Finally, they discuss the Jesus Calling Devotional Bible and show why Jesus Calling “messages” should not be included in any Bible.

Book Description: Inspired by the New Age book God Calling, Sarah Young claims to be receiving messages from Jesus Christ which she compiled into what is now her best-selling book, Jesus Calling. Author Warren Smith carefully documents his concerns about her book, her “Jesus,” and the New Age implications contained in many of Young’s devotional messages. He also warns about the danger of contemplative prayer and in elevating spiritual experiences over the Word of God. “Another Jesus” Calling is his call for much needed discernment in these very deceptive times.

“Another Jesus” Calling Book Review: A Little Gem to Help You Steer Clear of Deception

A Review of “Another Jesus” Calling by Warren B. Smith“Person to Person Calling” was a particular kind of telephone call, that I as a telephone operator, performed over and over in the days before unlimited long distance rates.  And this “person to person” calling is what Sarah Young purported to have heard in her best selling book Jesus Calling.

The question for us is:  “Was Jesus Calling?”  Former New Ager, Warren B. Smith, gives us the answer in his provocative little book: “Another Jesus” Calling.  And the answer, Smith most decisively proves, is this, “No, Jesus was not calling!”  And here’s why:

Saturating his thirty concerns with scripture, as to why Jesus did not personally speak with Sarah Young, Smith lays out a precise picture providing us with a book of which you can, with confidence, share with skeptical friends or family that have been deceived into devouring Young’s channeled devotional.

Smith first introduces us to Sarah Young, who seems like an unlikely person to have been lured into receiving channeled messages from “another Jesus,” having once been a student at Francis Schaeffer’s L’Abri, but in spite of  this background this was where Sarah became aware of a lovely presence whom she called “Sweet Jesus.”

Smith next introduces us to God Calling- the book Sarah embraced  before she, too, became a listener with pen in hand.  In this section Smith provides numerous scriptures along with each of his ten concerns, as to why God was not calling those two lady listeners; and as to why Sarah was deceived from the get-go when she based her own book on the listener’s spiritual dictation.

Book Review: “Another Jesus” Calling – A valuable resource that every Christian needs to read

Dec 28th, 2013 Posted in Book/DVD Reviews, PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT | Comments Off on Book Review: “Another Jesus” Calling – A valuable resource that every Christian needs to read

From Books and Chocolate Blog

A few years ago I purchased a copy of Jesus Calling by Sarah Young because it came so highly recommended. After reading the introduction and several9780989509336 entries I knew something wasn’t right and I got rid of the book. Maybe it was the audacity of someone presuming to speak in the first person on behalf of Jesus, or maybe it was because this “Jesus” didn’t sound like the Jesus I knew from scripture. “Another Jesus” Calling by Warren B. Smith addresses these valid concerns and why Young’s “Jesus” is not the Jesus of the Bible.

One issue with Young’s “Jesus” is that he uses New Age terminology and concepts that the real Christ doesn’t. For example, he invites the reader to become his “channel”. He describes himself as being above all and in all, a concept consistent with the New Age teaching of God Transcendent and God Immanent in every form of life.

He suggests that the reader “take a road less traveled” (hinting at M. Scott Peck’s book) and that to go “out on a limb” (the title of Shirley MacLaine’s book) with him is the safest place to be. As Smith writes, “…the true Jesus Christ is quite aware of these mega bestselling New Age books. It defies reason that he would make any kind of positive reference – directly or indirectly – to the titles of two of the most popular New Age books published in the last three decades. Taking “a road less traveled” with M. Scott Peck is not what we are called to do. Going “out on a limb” with Shirley MacLaine is not the safest place to be.”

 

PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT – LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS NEW BOOK RELEASE

Nov 25th, 2013 Posted in new releases, PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT, Publishing News | Comments Off on PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT – LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS NEW BOOK RELEASE

Another Jesus CallingEureka, MT – November 25, 2013 – Lighthouse Trails is pleased to announce the release of “Another Jesus” Calling.

Are you one of the nine million people who has read Sarah Young’s New York Times best seller, Jesus Calling? Or do you have a family member or friend who uses Jesus Calling as a daily devotional? Or are you someone who is using discernment in your own spiritual life but feels confused about the direction in which you see so many you know going? If any of these is the case for you, then Warren B. Smith’s new book, “Another Jesus” Calling, is a crucial read.

Revealing how countless numbers of people are following a counterfeit Christ, and using Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling as an example, Smith exposes the plan of the enemy to deceive the masses by subtle and not so subtle means.

Inspired by the New Age book God Calling, Sarah Young claims to be receiving messages from Jesus Christ. Former New Age follower Warren Smith carefully documents his concerns about her book, her “Jesus,” and the New Age implications contained in many of Young’s devotional messages. He also warns about the danger of contemplative prayer and in elevating spiritual experiences over the Word of God. “Another Jesus” Calling is his call for much needed discernment in these very deceptive times.

For those who have read Jesus Calling and been troubled by it but didn’t know why, “Another Jesus” Calling will give substance to your concerns and will equip you to help your friends who may be reading Young’s book also. And if you have read Jesus Calling and see nothing wrong with it, consider the claims of “Another Jesus” Calling.

Beyond all this, “Another Jesus” Calling serves as a discernment tool in rightly handling the Word of God. You will lay down this book with renewed understanding of the essential role of the Bible and the Gospel message in keeping on (or returning to) the right path.

Standing Fast in the Last Days DVD Back in Production

Nov 12th, 2013 Posted in Book/DVD Reviews, Conferences/Lectures, Excerpts, new releases, PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT | Comments Off on Standing Fast in the Last Days DVD Back in Production

Lighthouse Trails is pleased to announce that it has brought Warren B. Smith’s lecture DVD Standing Fast in the Last Days back into production.

Standing-Fast-in-the-Last-DaysOn June 5th, 2008, former New Age follower Warren Smith spoke to 800 pastors at the Calvary Chapel Senior Pastors’ Conference in Murrieta, California. This took place because of a personal invitation by Chuck Smith, the late founder of the Calvary Chapel movement. Integrating his compelling testimony, Warren shared his deep concerns regarding the spiritual deception taking place in the church today. Covering topics such as the Emerging Church, Purpose-Driven, the New Age, and what is being called the New Spirituality, Warren exposed what may be the signs of a great falling away that the Bible has predicted will happen in the days before Christ’s return. Some of the topics Warren addressed were: the influence of Oprah Winfrey and Robert Schuller, a growing hostility toward biblical Christians, a plan for a false world peace, how mysticism is becoming an integral part of today’s society, and the interspiritual, ecumenical movement that is gaining momentum and deceiving many.

Authors Ray Yungen and Warren B. Smith to Speak at Last Days Bible Conference in Calgary, Alberta

Mar 11th, 2013 Posted in Conferences/Lectures | Comments Off on Authors Ray Yungen and Warren B. Smith to Speak at Last Days Bible Conference in Calgary, Alberta

Authors Ray Yungen and Warren B. Smith will be speaking at this year’s “Last Days Bible Conference” in Calgary, Alberta, which will be held on April 26th and 27th. Previous Last Days Bible Conferences have also included Lighthouse Trails author Roger Oakland. The theme of this year’s conference is “When He Comes” (Luke 18:8).  There is no charge to attend.

While most of our readers will not be able to attend because of distance, we hope many of you can be there. It will be a great time of teaching and also fellowship and encouragement with other believers.

The conference website states:

The Last Days Bible Conference is an annual two day event held every spring in Calgary AB. The conference is sponsored by the Last Days Bible Conference Committee, an independent, non-denominational organization based in southern Alberta.

The purpose of the conference is to provide helpful insight into doctrinal and practical challenges facing the church today and to encourage the body of Christ through the unchanging Word of God.

Note: We received the following note:

Hello Lighthouse Trails,  I note that you mentioned that “Authors Ray Yungen and Warren B. Smith will be speaking at this year’s “Last Days Bible Conference” in Calgary, Alberta, which will be held on April 26th and 27th.  Well, here’s some more good news!!!   If you open the link and click on MEDIA or just log on to http://www.ldbc.ca/ and go directly to the media,  one can listen to the past conferences on line.  The organizers are graciously making these available to the public from 2007 till 2012.  I’m sure they will put 2013 Conference teachings up on the internet as well.  Perhaps your readers would like to know about this.  Especially wonderful for those who live far away or are housebound.  God is so good to send us His servants to teach us what His word says and to encourage us in our walk. We are not alone. Scroll down to 2009 Conference for Roger Oakland’s and Carl Teichrib’s 2012 teachings at LDBC.  Bill Goetz in 2011.  The teaching is awesome and most edifying!  Charles Clough sessions 3, 8 and 12 of 2012 on Paganism and Religious Exclusivism, are most instructive also. Be ye therefore much encouraged in the LORD; you are always in my prayers.  May the LORD strengthen and encourage you daily.  With great affection in Jesus, Jeannette
