About the Book

Thou shalt not be negative.

A vast movement of positive thinking took the twentieth century by storm and engulfed every area of our lives—including our churches. Put simply, positive thinking became a part of what it means to be an American.

But should it be part of what it means to be a Christian?

L.L. Martin exposes the eye-opening history of this movement, documenting its roots in occult, mystical, and Eastern religious ideas. Though Christianity came under its power, the two philosophies stand in stark conflict. As a result, Christ was dethroned and the self was made sovereign, rewiring our minds and weakening our faith.

This practical book, immersed in Scripture, seeks to reestablish you in a God-centered life.

• Deepen your spiritual walk by embracing honesty.

• Discover the neglected paradoxes of Christian living.

• Learn to live in the grace by which you were saved.

Positively Powerless will help you detect the false gospel of positivity and reconnect to your true source of power: the gospel of Jesus Christ.

*** Includes questions for personal reflection or group discussion.
