Beat God to the Punch: Because Jesus Demands Your Life by Eric Mason My rating: 4 of 5 stars Beat God to the Punch is based on the premise that someday every knee will bow to Christ (Philippians 2:9-11), so author Eric Mason suggests we beat God to the punch by submitting our lives to Him in humility so God’s grace can work in and through our lives.

Here are two brief videos (2-3 minutes each) to give you a sampling of David Platt. He says things that challenge our thinking in a really good way. I like that. Take a listen to see what you think.   Why “Accepting Jesus in Your Heart” Is Superstitious & Unbiblical       Why Many Christians Are Deceived David Platt discusses why many Christians are deceived. He says, “Everything would be different in these mens lives, because this encounter with Jesus—everything!
