#1 New Release in Religious Studies—Philosophy

 The Rise of Western Lawlessness

Moving up—Please considering reviewing one of my best books to date. There's so much research packed into this book you just have to read it to believe it. TIA:

The Rise of Western Lawlessness: Second Edition is an expansion of Volume 1 and includes a foreword by Douglas W. Krieger. Many images have been added to better illustrate the the philosophies of man and the spiritual systems of wickedness that have exalted themselves against the knowledge of Christ. Steinle takes the reader on a journey through 3,000 years of western history exposing the deceptive spirits of humanism and deism rooted in ancient philosophy- the same ungodly influences that were reintroduced to western thought during the Renaissance and the so-called Age of Enlightenment. Along the way, discover why the modern hodgepodge of spiritism, metaphysics, and evolutionary theories are not only false, but inconsistent and self defeating. Includes more than 150 supporting references and 26 illustrations. Excerpts: [Today's freedom represents neither the Old Testament concept of freedom from ungodly peoples, nor the New Testament freedom from the enemies of sin, death, and eternal separation from God. The new face of freedom is the liberty of self expression - a personal freedom that perceives as its adversary every form of restriction... freedom to experiment, freedom to sin, freedom from conscience, and freedom from God. Meanwhile, the remnant who still cling to Judeo-Christian ethics look on in dismay as the citizens of the Western nations surrender all of their other rights for the right to sin. Lawlessness is next to godlessness...The Western Church has diminished the perceived authority of God by embracing the philosophical god of goodness. An ideal god that is too good to judge. A universal goodness devoid of power to do anything. Today's nominal Christians are disowning the Lord God and following after this theoretical god; an inanimate god who sees nothing, hears nothing, and knows nothing. The philosophical god is as unlike the living God as the idols of ancient times. "But their idols are silver and gold, made by human hands. They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see. They have ears, but cannot hear, noses, but cannot smell. They have hands, but cannot feel, feet, but cannot walk, nor can they utter a sound with their throats. Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them." - Psalm 115:4-8 NIV. And those who make this theoretical god will be like it! That is, the worshipers of the abstract god will be without discernment, without knowledge, and without judgment. Likewise, those who imitate this god believe that it is wrong to distinguish differences, that it is wrong to claim truth, and wrong to judge anyone. But the True God is the living God; the Father God; the Lord God who is the judge of heaven and earth - the judge of the living and the dead. Thus, this freedom called lawlessness has one great and dreaded enemy - the existence of the one true God.]- end excerpts.
