BOOKS EVERYWHERE . . . And Everyone Seems to be an Expert

Dr. Lewis Gregory


“But, my child, let me give you some further advice: Be careful, for writing books is endless, and much study wears you out” (Ecclesiastes 12:12). 

When it comes to Christian biblical teachings you must be very careful what, when, where and how you speak or write. “Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, knowing that as such we will incur a stricter judgment” (James 3:1). This a sober warning from the Lord regarding the consquences of speaking on behalf of the Lord, lest we lead someone astray.

Anyone can be an author. But if you are a minister of the Lord before you write or speak you need to be sure you are led of God with a message from God, and that you deliver it in God’s time and in God’s way. “You are not your own” (1 Corinthians 6:19 NASB). Therefore, “Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen” (1 Peter 4:11 NASB).

In my own case it took 21 years before the Lord allowed me to release my first book after I began writing it. “I never set out to write a book, but it was obviously part of God’s plan. Sharing anything on the Lord’s behalf has serious ramifications—a task never to be taken lightly. Therefore, this book has been a long time in the making, and is the result of a lifetime of in-depth study of God’s Word. 

In fact, it has been hammered out on the anvil of my life experiences with the Lord. It also has been confirmed by the lives and teachings of many others, too numerous to mention. Actually, I believe the Lord has been preparing me for this awesome assignment all my life.” excerpt from EPILOGUE-The New You May 2005.
