3.0 out of 5 stars I'm not sure what to make of it., 1 July 2008
This review is from: The Complete Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue (Boxed Set) (Hardcover)
When I first bought this book I found what it was saying to ring true with what I had learnt on my own spiritual journey and I found some great insights in this book. These insights do appear maybe to have been inspired by God working through Donald.. maybe.
For example the fact that our lives are almost exclusively based on our inner view and beliefs of our world, that fear attracts negative and vice versa.
But then on reading further I found some very disturbing passages. Donald asks God about Hitler and God replies 'Hitler went to heaven', to which he resonds 'but Hitler killed hundreds and thousands of Jews', and 'God's' shocking response is basically that 'Hitler did nothing wrong. Hitler simply did what he did... The mistakes Hitler made did no harm or damage to those whose deaths he caused. Those souls were released from their earthly bondage.'!
(That made me so angry I put the book down for a few months)
Also there are many passages where God apparently says that sex should not be hidden from children and if they start to explore themselves in a way which is innapropriate at a young age, we shouldn't stop them.
'God' states basically that parents should just have sex openly around the house and let children watch if they want to!
Like I say a lot of the book is very inspiring but these disturbing passages and others put a sour taste in my mouth.
I feel, like the bible and other 'inspired' texts, that yes some is indeed maybe inspired by the all-knowing spirit of God (whatever that is) that can reveal awesome truths, but also these books are written by humans and alas being filtered by humans there comes human error and the authors own ideals are mixed in with 'God's', maybe unbeknownst to the author.
So we must be carefull in blindly accepting any book as being completely of God.

Mr Downey,

Respectfully do you not think it's you indoctrins that caused you to find offence in the parts you mentioned - which is the whole point of the book to allow us to know about self spritually - in the highest picture, there is no right and wrong 'we' have free will/choice and decided what right and wrong is based on his'tory, religion and experience). Re; the sex, the society we live in now makes sex seem sordid and may be why we (U.K) have the highest rate of STD's, teenager pregnancies and abortions rates in Europe (for some years now), there are living situations (Indiginous communities, Hippies/Naturalists etc) where sex happens in front of children as its their norm and is explained as how we 'make babies' or 'adults express love', it doesn't always result in young people growing up with a warped sense of this natural and human activity.

peace and love!

Your last sentence is totally accurate, we should never blindly accept anything as truth, just see if it rings true for you, and this is a message of the books. Re the whole Hitler went to heaven thing, I don't think you can say this expresses the authors views as he finds it very hard to accept himself, as well as the sex thing. 'God' uses the release from bondage statement to give a counter to him being 'evil', not as an excuse. I would recommend reading 'the little soul and the sun', this may help ease your conflict with that part of the book as it teaches that we are all here to give each other certain experiences. But again, if it doesn't work for you, that's fine! At least it got you thinking and deciding who you are in relation to this.

I would also add to read 'Matthew, tell me about heaven' also, this book explains everything too.
