“The Heart of Christian Leadership”

The book is filled with practical ways that leaders can grow in character and looks at motives, truthfulness, forgiveness, leaving well and others.” (Book Description from AMAZON)

Author: Jon Byler

Educated at: Regent University

Currently: International Coordinator at Global LEAD Alliance

Jon Byler has been developing and refining material for the church, especially leaders, for most of his life. His book on “The Heart of Christian Leadership” is absolutely EPIC – there is no other word to describe this Chris exalting work that challenges Christians in the pulpit and the pew to take a good heard look at how they lead their people/families. Byler contends that Christian Leadership MUST imitate the leadership practice of the Lord Jesus. The book is so very refreshing because it forces us to realize the Biblical reality that the symbol of our leadership, the dictating factor, is neither Crown nor whip, but the basin and towel. This is a view of leadership that is sorely lacking in the modern church, where pastors rule as kings receiving the humble servitude of their congregants; strutting on “high places” to fulfill their own agenda’s and build their own Kingdoms.

“A reader says: “I lead a mission organization that works with pastors in developing countries so I am familiar with the challenges that Christian leaders face. This is the best book I know on character development for leaders. Rather than wasting time warning against obvious sins, the author compels us to look honestly at our hearts and challenges us to Biblical standards of integrity. He gives practical advice on the issues that leaders struggle with most. Highly recommended!””

“That is such a honest review of this work. . The book provides practical advice with concrete applications to unlock your full leadership potential. If you want your church to grow in Christlikeness; if you want to lead people to live IN CHRIST to God’s glory. Then this is an absolute MUST read’.”

“May the Lord use this book for the advance and growth of His kingdom in this temporal world.”

"The Father has provided a universal seed substance that responds with magical power to the active mind of man Ideas have occult power, and ideas, when rightly planted and rightly tended are the seeds that's actualize material conditions.

“The Father has provided a universal seed substance that responds with magical power to the active mind of man… Ideas have occult power, and ideas, when rightly planted and rightly tended are the seeds that’s actualize material conditions.”

“If you have the thought of poverty you will be poor, but if you entertain thoughts of prosperity you will set into operation forces that will bring about prosperous conditions.”

“We will always attract to us, in our lives and conditions, according to our thought. things are but the outer manifestations of the inner mental concepts…. the conditions we attract will correspond exactly to our mental pictures.”

“If I believe I am sick, I am sick, for my feelings are my sickness and my sickness is my belief, and my belief is my mind. Therefore, all disease is in the mind or belief”

“Jesus was not God. He was the manifestation of God and so are all people … ‘I say that ye are gods’.”

“In the degree that we open ourselves fully to this divine outflow are we changed from mere men into God-men…In essence the life of God and the life of man are identically the same, and so are one. they differ not in essence, in quality, they differ in degree.”

“Repetition of affirmation of orders to you subconscious mind is the only known method of voluntary development of the emotion of faith.”

“If the word is the way God creates, it is the right way. If it works for God shall it not work for us?…All words have as much power as we put into them when we speak. ‘The word is already in our own mouths’. That word is all that you will ever need to bring happiness,health and success to you.”

“… You cant be a failure, for His (God’s) wisdom is your wisdom; His ability in every department of life is your ability. All you need to do is to study the word of God and get the knowledge imparted to you there…”

” There is one God, creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three manifestations: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Each person of the Godhead is Triune; there are nine persons in the Godhead.

“God uses words to create what He wants to exist. Christians have the same ability…”

“Speak only words that agree with what you desire… the importance of speaking right words cannot be measured. Faith is released with the mouth.”

If you confess the right thing the right thing will come to pass.

“Our words have tremendous power and whether we want to or not, we will give life to what we are saying, either good or bad… words are similar to seeds, by speaking them aloud, they are planted in our subconscious minds and then take on a life of their own.”

“You are little gods”

“I am a little God; critics be gone.”

“You don’t have a God in you, you are one.”

“When God created Adam, He created Him from the dust of the earth, God put His mouth on Him; blew in him the breath of life. He became a living soul. God said ‘I wanted to see what I looked like so I made you to be in my image. You have my DNA…”

“The Word of God is your highway to the world of wealth”

“There is a miracle in your mouth. If you want to change your world, start by changing your words… If you learn how to speak the right words and keep the right attitude, God will turn that situation around”

Quotes from Prosperity Preachers, right? Yes and No. The first 7 quotes are from the fathers of what was called the “New Thought Movement”. A non-Christian, hinduistic teaching that was propounded by Swedenborg, Quimby, Trine, Holmes, Wattles et al between the 17 and 18 hundreds. It was also called the “The Gospel of Relaxation” or ” Youth, Health, Vigor”. This movement regarded all religions to be equally valid for life. The next 15 quotes are from today’s “New Gospel” or “Full/Prosperity Gospel preachers” such as the Hagins, Copelands, Dollar, Tilton, Meyer, Hinn et al. Remarkably identical claims, eh? Yes!! If one studies the two movements together one will find that the latter is a perfect re-write of the former; sometimes verbatim!!There is very little difference between the Fathers of the “New Thought Movement” and the “Pastors” of the “Health, Wealth and Happiness Gospel”

This is what Jones and Woodbridge, both PhD’s in Finance from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and presently Pastors/Teachers, reveal in their scholarly book “Health, Wealth & Happiness: has the prosperity Gospel overshadowed the Gospel of Christ?”(Kregel). It is a work that accurately investigates,critiques and exposes, by irrefutable documentation, the horrendous heresies and deceit that pervades the whole “Prosperity Gospel’ movement.
