"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Run for your life!

    A new book by Ann Voskamp called "One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are" has gained extreme popularity among many Christian women today.

    One of the roles a true shepherd of the sheep has is to warn the flock of false doctrine, to help them steer clear of unhealthy or dangerous spiritual food. I do so here. My advice, for what its worth - when you see these concepts being taught, run for your life! More at this link. - JS

    Thank you for the referral. I have not yet heard of this book but appreciate the warning. I will spread the word...

    Thanks for the info and the warning. Given it's popularity like The Shack, I was skeptical, and my concern has been confirmed.
