Overall very helpful book especially when dealing with forgiveness within the Christian community. Y entre otras cosas como reconocer a una cabra en el cuerpo de Cristo. Un libro precioso, se merece las 5 estrellas.
Jun 03, Miranda rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this book because it covers a lot of areas in the church from the pulpit to the pews. I understood how unforgiveness causes a breach in the lives of believers. It also covers what we believer overlook most of the time which is "complaining and murmuring". Perry Stone actually made this book easy to comprehend with relatable life stories.
Jul 31, Ashley rated it really liked it Shelves: religious. I liked this book much better than the last Perry Stone book I finished a few days ago. A lot of the information felt new and a tiny bit easier to understand. There were a few things I didn't personally agree with but not enough that it took away what I got from the book information wise.

If you have been hurt in a church by leadership, if you have been betrayed by a false friend, if you have been slandered or rejected or deceived, then this is the book for you. I have read many books along this line. Perry Stone adds a depth of understanding to these problems that is missing from these books. Besides telling you how to deal with false friendships, with people who intentionally use you or those who later on in the relationship turn against you or lie to you, Perry Stone tells you h If you have been hurt in a church by leadership, if you have been betrayed by a false friend, if you have been slandered or rejected or deceived, then this is the book for you.
Besides telling you how to deal with false friendships, with people who intentionally use you or those who later on in the relationship turn against you or lie to you, Perry Stone tells you how to be selective in determining which level of friendship to allow a person into.
This is good advice. Most people just let people into their inner circle too early before their loyalty has been demonstrated. He also has compassion for those who hurt you and shows Scripturally how to deal with them for their benefit and for yours. He also tells you how to forgive. You may think that is easy, simply saying that you forgive them. But forgiveness must be done Scripturally so that the person is not protected from the consequences of his actions so that he has a learning experience.
Forgiveness does not mean letting someone escape the consequences of their actions unless they have repented, which means realizing they are wrong and changing their behavior. But it does mean not judging them by usurping God's authority to deal with them. It also means that you do not talk about them behind their back or bring the memory of the hurt back to your mind constantly.
It means praying for God to bless them By this time, you probably realize that you fall short in many ways. So did I. So, read this book. If you apply what he says as you read the book, you will probably recall people who have betrayed you whom you have actually not completely forgiven. Then you will apply what he has said and you will be healed. You are not reading this book to heal those who have hurt you. You need to be healed; Perry Stone shows you how to be healed.
But it means using the love of God to pray for those who have betrayed you. It means seeing them as God sees them, understanding that you might have behaved the same way if you had walked in their shoes. It means not judging them for not living up to your expectations. It means standing in the gap for them in areas where they have let their defenses down or out of ignorance never put them up.
It means praying to protect them from Satan and praying for God's blessings on them. Then you will be healed. It may seem from this review that most of the book was about forgiving, but it is not. Forgiving is sometimes difficult to do, especially when you have been hurt by leadership in a church. But as you go through this book, applying what you have read, you will find that your heart is so changed that true forgiveness comes easily.
This has been the easiest process of forgiveness that I have ever experienced. Perry Stone makes you realize that you are doing this for your own good. A good book to accompany this is "Forgiveness: God's Master Plan.
This book describes how the process of forgiveness does not mean releasing them from the consequences of their actions. But it means releasing them from any consequences from you so that God can deal with them and be their judge. As long as you are bearing a grudge against them, they are not released to Bod and He cannot do what He wants with them. So you are usurping God's authority and preventing them from being disciplined by a loving God. Of course this does not mean not being able to go through legal steps such as lawsuits, incarceration, etc.
It means leaving the outcome of these actions to God and letting him deal with the heart of the offender. Once you understand the role of forgiveness, forgiveness comes much more easily. If you have ever been hurt by church leadership or betrayed by a close friend, I recommend this book. Jul 13, Karen Locklear rated it it was amazing. You know what a Judas goat is? It's a goat that befriends the sheep, guides them, keeps them in line, and takes them off to the slaughter.
The author, Perry Stone, uses sheep and goats as a metaphor throughout his book as he talks about getting over betrayal. I like Stone because he is incredibly real.
He handled all kinds of drama where people trashed him, his ministry, his family, etc. And he didn't handle it perfectly each time. In fact, he specifically tells a story about a time when he went You know what a Judas goat is? In fact, he specifically tells a story about a time when he went around doing "damage control" when a nasty rumor was spread and how that just made it worse.
I think we've all been there.
