The first chapters are, broadly speaking, given over to a summary of some of the basic themes from the first two books. New insights and perspectives gradually enter the picture as the dialogue between Walsch and God develops. For example, at the beginning of chapter 5 they discuss that Jesus is not the only human to have risen from the dead. "Its happening every day, right now, in your hospitals". Other topics include reincarnation in multiple lifetimes across the space-time continuum (Star Trek and science fiction fans will enjoy this), communication with spirits, and highly evolved civilizations. As always with the CWG series, there is a move away from a God who is to be worshipped and feared, and a move towards a God of love with whom we are all one.
Is this really God talking? "Either I am God talking, or this Neale fellow is a pretty bright guy. What's the difference?" (page 112) says it all really!
I read this book on the advice of a friend. He told me the book was fascinating. I certainly agree.
The main thing I would like to say in the beginning is that this book shares some elements with Christianity, but is certainly not Christianity of the sort that most people will recognize. So if you do not like to read books that are at odds with your version of Christianity, avoid this one. It will be a one star book for you.
The author tells us that he had been writing down his religious and philosophical questions on a yellow legal pad for years. One day, he began to hear answers. He then wrote those answers down. What was "dictated" to him becomes the backbone of this book.
I have no way of knowing what the real source of these responses to the questions in the conversations is. It could be Divine communications. It could be Satanic ones. It could be a manifestation of the author's psychology. There are a lot of other things it could be. You'll have to decide for yourself. If you have a spiritual advisor or counselor whom you respect, that would be a good subject to discuss with her or him.
I found myself empathizing with the author's perspective of the conversations. "I am . . . deeply embarrassed by my own life . . . ." "Yet I am encouraged by God to grant myself forgiveness . . . ."
There were several concepts in the book that I found to be new, and which added to my spiritual perspective. One was: "The truth is, God talks to everybody.Read more ›
'voice of God'. However, the 'answers' that he gives are not Bible-based and
go against the very infallible word of God. For instance (and I paraphrase),
when a girl asks the question 'Why am I a lesbian?' His answer is that she
was 'born that way' because of genetics (just as you were born right-handed,
with brown eyes, etc.). Then he tells her to go out and 'celebrate' her
Another girls poses the question 'I am living with my boyfriend. My parents
say that I should marry him because I am living in sin. Should I marry him?'
His reply is, 'Who are you sinning against? Not me, because you have done
In his books, Walsch says the voice told him that God is everything and everything is God.
Therefore, we humans are "God." Everyone around you is simply "you" in a different form, and we are all "God."
Here, Walsch is repeating one of Satan's original lies, "You will be as God" (Genesis 3:5).
Walsch also claims that all life is eternal. Death is "the great illusion."
There is no judgment, no punishment, and no hell, for there is no reason for any of that--there is no sin.
After death, a person goes to a different level of existence in order to "continue the evolution of the human soul."
This teaching is in direct conflict with Hebrews 9:27 and many other passages of scripture that teach the reality of judgment after death.
Walsch's defense of Hitler's actions is in line with his teaching of relativism:
Hitler might be called "evil," but only "within the context of our human experience.Read more ›
