Not at all.
I read TLGPE
in the early '70's and it helped me understand the march of Bible prophesy and God's grand design that was/is playing out exactly according to His plan. It helped me to see the plan and destiny of the Jewish people, the conflict/wars in the Middle East, the rise in Europe and put modern trends into a Biblical-based perspective. It helped me realize that the hatred of the Muslims against Israel and the west was satanically inspired and that made watching events unfolding in that part of the world make sense. To fully understand the true nature of Islam, one must not only understand history, but also Bible prophesy. . . without both, the mess in the Middle East is confused beyond recognition. The Seduction of Christianity
helped me see through the bad theology of the televangelists and the health/wealth/name it and claim it
hucksters and the charismatic healing frauds. The gifts of the Spirit are easy to counterfeit, the fruits are more difficult. It helped me realize that apostasy, paganism and social justice politics are easier to find in the end times churches than authentic Christianity and sound Bible teaching. Spiritual deception, in the context of Bible prophesy, helped me see the march of the a/c and his one world economy, politics and religion coming to fruition day by day.The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow
helped me realize that so much of the New Age Movement [NAM] was paganism, occultism and satanism re-packaged. The true basis of witchcraft, astrology, yoga, meditation, altered states of consciousness, drug abuse, porn, pop-psychology, psychic healing, UFOology, environment theology, the ecumenical movement as NAM make the whole sordid epidemic understandable.
All three should be on the required list for mature Christians.
