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.

Top Highlights

“‘There is a good that is not of Me. It is not submitted to Me.’” (source)

“There is nothing good for you outside of God’s wisdom or Word, nothing at all.” (source)

“The word savior is found 36 times in the Bible. The word lord occurs over 7,800 times. Where do you think God places the emphasis? Lord declares the position He holds in our life, whereas Savior describes the work He’s done for us. We cannot partake of the benefit of His work unless we come under His position as Lord and King.” (source)

“We are still eating from the wrong tree. What passes as good is robbing us of what is best for our lives.” (source)

“This should be the declaration of every true child of God. No longer are we independent, feeding from the tree of our evaluation of what is good and evil.” (source)

Praise for the Print Edition

When I read the stories of people who did unprecedented things out of love for God, I ?nd myself longing to be among them. Good or God? speaks to what happens in the minds and hearts of those who truly embrace God’s best—rather than settling for easier counterfeits. If you share this desire to know and serve God in a radical way, I urge you to read this book.

—John C. Maxwell, best-selling author and speaker

Good or God? is an amazing lesson in discernment that will challenge you to truly seek the Lord for His perfect will in your life.
