    Andrew Farley will always be my favorite pastor. I really love how he breaks down complicated scriptures to show you that God is a lot nicer than you think! I have shared my testimony on here several of times but it bears repeating: I grew up in a very religious household where everything were rules and commandments that I had to follow. Shun the appearance of evil, do not listen to secular music, do not drink alcohol, do not dance, etc. Many of the things I found tolerable, I could no longer do Andrew Farley will always be my favorite pastor.

I have shared my testimony on here several of times but it bears repeating: I grew up in a very religious household where everything were rules and commandments that I had to follow. Shun the appearance of evil, do not listen to secular music, do not drink alcohol, do not dance, etc. Many of the things I found tolerable, I could no longer do in fear of the wrath of God that was going to pour out of me. However. I have since abandoned a lot of religious thinking and became more spiritual than 'religious'. Trust me knowing the difference will set you free in your own walk with God. Farley plainly states that it is Christ finished work on the cross that matters. It is not your performance, your willingness to please God, your ways, but it is ALL Jesus! Now some may say that calls for laziness but that calls for a celebration! Jesus is the one empowering me to do things, He is pleased me because I am His! I am chosen, forgiven, wanted, child of the King, His forever, held & treasured. I am loved! Pardon my french but religion is BULLSHI.SHUT YOUR MOUTH! This is the second audio book I listened too, it took me about a week but glad that I took the time with it. 45 lies untangled, it is very raw and language, this is more of a combination of all his previous books but highly recommended. Dear reader. God is madly in love with you, you are precious and adored!

    Andrew Farley’s “Twisted Scripture” is a 349-page undertaking in which he sets out to address 45 lies he believes Christians have been told. The broader categories include addressing misconceptions within topics such as Salvation, Eternal Security, the Old and the New Testament and the proper place for the Law of Moses, Identity in Christ, United with Jesus, Once-for-All-Forgiveness, Judgment, Punishment, and Rewards, Church Discipline, Tongues, and Health-Wealth.

This book is an absolute must-have for every serious student of the Bible. He’s spot-on with so many of these topics and it truly is alarming to think of how much of the Body of Christ lives in ignorance concerning the issues he discussed. His work is very thorough and this is an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand literary work. I would suggest reading it in bite-sized portions and taking time to reflect on each topic, as well as to examine any errant beliefs you may be holding onto. This is an excellent resource to have on hand for those inevitable questions for anyone involved in ministering the Gospel. I think my favorite topic he addressed was whether a Christian can lose their salvation and whether they can “fall from grace” and hear the words, “Depart from Me, I never knew you.” That whole section on Eternal Security will bring peace and comfort to so many who have been taught incorrect doctrine concerning salvation and eternity. All in all, this was a wonderful, thorough book and I am grateful he wrote it! The Body of Christ needs his message.

    I have a real, genuine appreciation for Andrew Farley. I have read a few other of his books, and listened to many of his sermons, and this book continues in the same vein. It is refreshing to hear about God's grace. A grace so complete that it is the bedrock of my faith. I will always recommend Andrew Farley's books.

    A Beautiful Unpacking of Scripture That Sets You Free Andrew keeps Jesus & the New Covenant central as he tackles the 'hot potatoes' in scripture that can leave God's children condemned & confused through a poor handling of scripture. Andrew makes it clear that the Law of Moses is holy, perfect & unattainable, that actually this leads to a holy respect for the Law & the need for grace & the New Covenant, living in this and recognising that for believers Jesus is the end of the Law & we are now un A Beautiful Unpacking of Scripture That Sets You Free Andrew keeps Jesus & the New Covenant central as he tackles the 'hot potatoes' in scripture that can leave God's children condemned & confused through a poor handling of scripture.

His writing opens your spiritual eyes to see that Jesus is the forever Priest of a new priesthood founded on better promises and NOT a continuation of the Old Covenant Priesthood!

    Really enjoyed reading this book. Helped clear up some questions and confirmed answers to other questions I already had. Makes clear that grace, love for God and for others is the way to live rather than trying to follow commands and rules that are no longer in effect. Very encouraging.

    There is so much in this book. I read one chapter (or a few chapters) at a time over time. No doubt, I will go back to specific chapters for further understanding. The author provides scriptural support refuting 45 lies (one per chapter) many Christians believe. Each lie represents a biblical principle some may struggle to understand and reconcile with other parts of the Bible. The book is outstanding. And since I have struggled with reconciling some of the lies, it helped having explanations. I There is so much in this book. I read one chapter (or a few chapters) at a time over time.

Pick it up if you are curious about Christianity or are a Christian who has questions about something you have heard or believed. The format allows for reading from beginning to end or jumping in on specific topics.

This is about 45 lies that have been told about Christianity. I really,really liked it and the “New Focus, prayers” were great after every chapter.

    Free at last Free at last - that was my experience after reading this book. Suddenly the Good news of the Gospel came alive once more. The word blessed means happy and we who are born again experience this ‘blessedness’ this ‘happiness’ at the core of our new creation inside us! This is a message for our time as so much false teaching abounds and many believers are held in bondage to false beliefs and useless and unnecessary religious practices. I couldn’t recommend this book enough. Thank you

    Andrew Farley exposes the many unbiblical teachings that has sneaked up in many churches today. Even some sincere Christ-believing churches, have twisted the simple Gospel and made it into a workbased Gospel, without even knowing it. This book is really an eyeopener for the true believer. Andrew leads the reader back to the basics of the faith. I truly recommend every believer to read this book.

    Sobering So much revelation and confirmation. I highly recommend this book, especially to those who've fallen away from church because of judgmental fellow church members. False man made doctrine is at epidemic proportions. This book unlocks so much of the garbage bondage in churches today. Sobering So much revelation and confirmation.

    This was not quite what I expected it to be. It rips Christians for following OT laws, but doesn't talk about how Christians of today have twisted ALL scripture to suit their own thoughts and beliefs instead of basing their beliefs on Scripture. It looked intriguing, and as a pastor, I was interested in what it might say. Except for a couple of things, I felt this book was a waste of money. This was not quite what I expected it to be.

    Very enlightening I gained a new appreciation for the Word and helped me untwist long held beliefs that held me captive and in guilt. Jesus + nothing takes the burden off me I believed was necessary to stay right with Jesus

    Fun read. Some of the questions are meant to rile you up, but as you read it you find you do believe the answer already. Others get you thinking, as you reason it out and find you agree with him. Even when you disagree, you find his answer is fully biblical.

    Inspirational Andrew has a full command of teaching and explaining scripture, even those passages that are difficult, or seemingly, contradictory. God is not the author of confusion.

    Questions, ponderings, troublesome teachings all fall into place in this clear, concise reference with scriptural-based teaching.

    I was disappointed in the lack of thoroughness with several questions & not all disagreements concerning what some passages mean can be labeled as lies.
