“God Calling” Is Not A Christian Devotional

The New Age book, God Calling

Pardon the sudden rant, but this angers and saddens me at the same time….

How sad is it that an otherwise reputable Christian book seller would stock and sell this book. CBD is selling this along with several other versions of the New Age book God Calling.

God Calling is a book that was written in the 1930s by two anonymous ‘listeners’ who prayed to God and then listened for what he had to say. They then wrote down what they heard him say and that’s what became the devotional God Calling. That is a New Age practice called channeling. It is very dangerous and is forbidden in Scripture. This book is listed in The Encyclopedia of New Age Beliefs as an example of a popular New Age book (Ankerberg & Weldon, Harvest House Publishers, 1996, p. 103).

Please don’t get sucked into the trap of this book. So many New Age practices sound and feel beautiful and right, but they are not of God and are not in line with Scripture.

  1. Many yrs ago I was given this devotional as a gift. In the present time I could analyze the problems with it, but back then I was not as knowledgeable about Christian theology and biblical issues. Yet even back then I realized something was not right with this devotional. I could not put my finger on it, but I knew it was off. I got rid of it. Thanks for making people aware of it since it is still around.

  2. Thanks Laura. New Age practices are infiltrating the church so much more today than (perhaps) ever before, and I think one reason is that people no longer understand what New Age is. Back in the 60s the church made a loud declaration that New Age teachings are against God and not to be tolerated in the church. Since then, people have stopped learning about New Age. So now that it’s creeping back in, often wearing a Christian overcoat, people are susceptible to it.

    Anyway, I guess that’s another rant. Thanks for your comment!
