The Spiritual Warrior's Guide to Defeating Jezebel by Jennifer LeClaire
Much was said about 20 years or so ago in the Christian world about the "Jezebel Spirit." Demons and evil spirits were much discussed and perhaps given a little too much glory. Jennifer LeClaire got some of her early experience with this subject through that movement. She has now experienced much along these lines and refined her take on this subject. As she mentions early in the book, many times forceful women or even just women with poor social skills have been labeled with this Jezebel spirit but this spirit is much more subtle and pervasive than that.
No matter what you choose to call it, this spirit is prevalent in the church world. Much of the mainline Christian denominations have compromised the Word of God by allowing false teachings and doctrines and just watering down and candy-coating the gospel message. "Secret" sins such as pornography and pedophilia are rampant in large sections of the church world. Cults introduce strange doctrine. Churches and ministries in many cases are more interested in their bottom line than maintaining Christian purity. All of these things simply put are idolatry and immorality.
There is much thought provoking material in this book and it is worth reading and taking to heart.
I received a copy of this book from Chosen books for review. I did not receive any compensation for completing the review. All opinions are my own.
