How to Live in Daily Deliverance Review, christian non-fiction I enjoyed learning from David Bersland’s book,  “How to Live in Daily Deliverance,” theological ideas which, some of them, differ greatly from my own.

The Good

  • Helpful view of the Holy Spirit
    • Holy Spirit will lead us into truth
    • Walking in the Holy Spirit
    • The Holy Spirit will help if we ask
  • Spiritual warfare
    • Biblical view of spiritual warfare
      • Demons do not have power over true followers of Christ, yet they can oppress (1 Peter 5:8 and Eph. 6:11)

The Bad

  • Grammar and spelling mistakes.
    • E.g. twice using “babes” instead of “babies”
  • The links at the back of the book do not work.
    • Disappointing because I was interested in checking out for more information

The Unsure*

  • I disagree with some possible subtle theological differences.
    • We do not need to clean workplaces or living spaces, but instead we need to do is live by the Spirit. To focus on cleaning spiritual does nothing, in fact: Christ already has power over our lives. Instead I would say, focus on Christ and do not give demons power, for they have none. The power of the Holy Spirit in us is greater than the power of demonic oppression. Instead of focusing on demonic warfare, we should focus on spiritual disciplines such as the Word of God, prayer, fellowship with other believers. While it’s good to not ignore demonic influence, it’s important we remember their place. Just living out our lives for Christ is enough to bind our evil thoughts, and demon’s intentions. Loving others more than we love ourselves, causes demons to have no crack to slip through. Living out our lives as if Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose again, takes all the influence of the demonic influence. In short, instead of focusing on cleansing, we focus on Christ.
      • 1 John 5:18 gives us encouragement: “We know that everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but he who was born of God protects him, and the evil one does not touch him.”
      • 1 John 4:4 “Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
      • 1 Peter 5:9 “Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.”

“How to Live in Daily Deliverance” is thought-provoking, made me think, and reconsider my life. E.g. do I live out my life knowing the unsurpassing power I have given from God? I recommend this book and you can check it out at Amazon.
