Why Good Without God Isn't Enough

If it’s good, it must be God. Right?

These days the terms good and God seem synonymous. We believe what’s generally accepted as good must be in line with God’s will. Generosity, humility, justice—good. Selfishness, arrogance, cruelty—evil. The distinction seems pretty straightforward.

But is that all there is to it? If good is so obvious, why does the Bible say that we need discernment to recognize it?

Good or God? isn’t another self-help message. This book will do more than ask you to change your behavior. It will empower you to engage with God on a level that will change every aspect of your life.

Life Changer

Good or God? This book has been an eye opener. I'm still chewing on the difference between Savior and LORD. The church has been needing to get back to changing their lives based on scripture and relying on God's wisdom and not our own. This book clearly and easily spells it out.

The book will show you how we've been and will be deceived and how subtle it can be. But it's more than just a book, it's a call to read scripture and apply it without preconceived ideas or filters, to rely on the Holy Spirit who lives in you. It's a call to live a life not just with Jesus as Savior but Jesus as LORD.

God's Presence
Customer Rating
Between reading "The Holy Spirit -An Introduction" and beginning "Good or God?" not only have I grown in being able to hear God speak to me on a very personal level, but I also have had certain situations where God has made things possible that I could not have made happen on my own! All these changes are just proof of how anything outside of God isn't really good and how amazing life can be when we are in God's will and He is with us. There are still challenges but, I'm believing for some miracles by the time I'm done reading this book. I would encourage anyone wanting to grow in their relationship with God and with others to read these books by John Bevere! It makes a difference when God is first!

Awesome book
Customer Rating
Wow where do I begin? This book gets down to the nitty gritty of everyday life. It is so easy for us to drift away from the things of God and start to follow things that present themselves as "godly". The world that we live in today celebrates "good" and views the things/ways of God as ancient or just mere words written by men. Good or God by John Bevere helps us puts things in perspective, he makes us realize that the things that present themselves as "good" most of the times are not of God. There is a thin line, and we have to be careful if not, we will find ourselves on the other side and not even know how we got there. I advise every to get this book, so the body of Christ can equip themselves with resourceful information that will help them to be able to test the spirit behind everything.

Great Read

I just have to say, I know everyone has put 5 stars for this book and it may seem crazy...but wow! SUCH a good read and can easily be read it a few days. Don't let that fool you though. From the 1st page of chapter 1 it was ON with wisdom after wisdom after wisdom. It turned my thinking and reality completely upside down. John Bevere brings it in this book! Some of the content may be hard to digest but hard to disagree with when there's scripture to back it up. Definitely opened my eyes personally to what I was actually considering 'good'. And might I add very happy my eyes were opened to it! It really shows just how 'watered' down and misaligned society has gotten on what is actually "good". This book helps you really understand what God actually deems as Good in His eyes. Fantastic read and will probably end up reading it again! Review by Matthew C (Posted on 9/10/2015)
Life Changing Must Read Book
Customer Rating
This is the third John Bevere book I have read this year. Just like The Holy Spirit and The Bait of Satan, Good or God is a life changing study. It is challenging and stretching me and my thinking far beyond my comfort zone. Every chapter is full of God inspired insights. After reading this book, I believe the Western Church needs to rethink our outlook and approach to evangelism of the Gospel. Multitudes of people may falsely believe they are saved, when actually, they are not. Jesus does not just want to be our Savior, He wants to be our Lord and Master! Thank you for writing this book and sharing the inspiration The Lord has given you! Review by Connie (Posted on 9/10/2015)

Good or God? Best-selling author, John Bevere, has done an incredible job at both issuing a warning to all (believers and non-believers), about the challenges we will face in the last days....and also an encouragement to all believers to hang in there, and to run the race until the end. What struck me deeply was the fact that John mentioned that we have a democratic mindset - almost worlds apart from God's autocratic Kingdom. We think differently because of this, and easily manipulate and reason as to why we do what we do, justifying our deeds and actions. However, the Bible is a Holy Book, a book full of warnings, full of encouragement, and off course, 100% truthful. If we were to follow this Book in its entirety, we would know the Truth, and the Truth - as the scriptures says - shall set us free.
In so many ways, we do not notice that `the' Antichrist - is in actual fact ANTI - Christ. We all know what `social' means, and off course what `anti-social' means, but have we ever thought about what ANTI-CHRIST means? It means that we are not living holy lives, that we are not projecting Christ-like character and that we are not living lives pleasing God. Even if we are in church, the deception of good can be there!!
Satan's very first deception started in the Garden of Eden with indicating to Eve, that God was withholding something good from her. John Bevere, has a Godly revelation about the real "evil" we will face in the last days. And that is the evil of good...

We as Believers, need to stay diligent in studying God's Truth (the Word), we need to stay close to His teachings, and recognise that by being a friend of the world, we are an enemy of God. We need to realise this without the need to be practicing legalism and by adopting Christ-like characteristics. There is no such thing as a small or big sin before God. Deception, gossip, lies....are all the same to God as murder and stealing etc. We need to pray for discernment to recognise what is from God, and what is not. An example that came to me in the last few weeks, which has not been an easy one for me to recognise... was of the very popular Disney children's programme - Sofia the First. My daughter (and I!) loved it and enjoyed watching it together. Good always overcome evil in this programme and the good people are so obviously good! But is it Godly? NO!!! It is not Godly; it is a definite example of GOOD without GOD. It hit me hard, and I had to seriously consider what I am allowing my child to watch, and how I have been responsible for deceiving my child into believing that sorcery and witchcraft are good! We need to stand up for God in this world, and we need to seriously start to look at why good without God is not acceptable.
I am so grateful for this warning from John Bevere - we have such a short time on this earth to run and complete the race. We need to focus to build our treasure in heaven and to obtain a place in God's Kingdom for eternity. Choose GOD, not good without Him.

We must learn not to be afraid of speaking the Truth - and the WHOLE TRUTH, not just the parts that suit us, not just the parts that make us popular amongst our friends and loved ones. We need to be honest with people around us, we need to warn and encourage. God yearns for us, His beloved children. How would we as parents feel if we knew our children was going to spend their entire future in darkness, in a place where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth. Off course we would do anything possible to ensure that they don't have to go through that. God loves us so much that He sent His beloved Son - Jesus Christ - to DIE for our sins. To pay the ultimate price, so that NO-ONE has to ever go through that. Jesus is our LORD and Savior.
I pray that every one of us will start to realize the profound impact of why good without God is not the right path to follow. We don't have long... John Bevere's Good or God is a MUST READ for everyone out there!
Review by The Deception of Good... (Posted on 9/10/2015)
As I read this book it turned my thinking upside down.

As I read this book it turned my thinking upside down. Never do we think we are deceived but so many of us are or have been. So many times we are taught or our thinking is that if it is good it MUST be God but just like in the garden Eve was not deceived or misled but evil things or openly sinful things but she was deceived by what she saw as good. I sat stunned reading this revelation in the book thinking "I have never saw it that way" it brought revelation light and revealed truth to my heart. This book has opened my eyes and changed my thinking. I keep going back to this scripture Proverbs 14:12 "There is a way that seems right to a man, but it's end is the way of death" to remind myself that not all things that appear good are God. I believe this message is for today and where we are right now in the world and John has stepped out and is releasing truth and bring light to deception. The message here will cause your eyes to be open to truth and transform your thinking! I highly recommend this book and have suggested it to most all my friends and even started a group that is doing the YouVersion reading plan of Good or God together and these ladies are on fire because of the power of the truth it is bringing to their hearts. Whatever your reading now, STOP and start this book because it is not just another book it contains a powerful truth that we all need today. Review by Sheila (Posted on 9/10/2015)
