Pamela Lopes ID# 795545 Winter 2001 RELB 104 - Jesus & the Gospels Dr. Harwood Book Review Bibliographical Reference White, Ellen G. Steps to Christ. Phoenix, Arizona: Inspiration Books, 1991. Overview Steps to Christ concentrates on God’s inclusive love for His people and His merciful nature. Ellen White addresses how we can all be saved by grace and how we can become better Christians. She dedicates each chapter to describe ways to get closer to God, following a set of steps that require higher and higher dedication and more understanding of God’s wisdom; Steps that will lead you to God; Steps to Christ. Analysis In my opinion, the most critical points the author presents in Steps to Christ are the ones dealing with Repentance and with Doubt. Repentance is a delicate matter because it relates to the fact that some people might think that they are repenting from their sins when in fact they are just doing it out of fear of being punished; they are not truly lamenting the sins that they committed; they lament the suffering that will take place because of their sins. The second Critical point of this book is the chapter that deals with Doubt because one can never be certain about everything and there are a lot of thing Continue...

The ninth chapter of the book, "The Work and the Life," shows that when we have love for Christ we cannot keep it to ourselves; the power of the Holy Spirit works through us to send Jesus"tm message everywhere we go and we become disciples of God"tms love and when we have this passion burning inside we also want to work for Christ and do things that would benefit his cause and his love. Jesus can restore and cleanse all those who want to be purified and recognize that this can only be done through Him and in Him. Our human nature does not help us either on this question because we are naturally curious and we always want to know the answers for everything. He will provide us with enough evidence for us to understand some of the things that happen in our world. The tenth chapter of the book, "A Knowledge of God," talks about how God speaks to us through various different forms. She also mentions that it is our responsibility to accept God"tms gifts and to follow His ways. " God wants to make us Holy so that we be with Him at the end of times "reaching our highest possible development," but for that we must renew our whole nature and soul, giving our lives to God and trusting in Him to help us walk in His way. It is a promise that if we walk in His ways, serving Him, and if we believe Him, "He will fulfill His words to us. We have to help them by reflecting the light that shines to us and help them find Jesus. The fourth chapter of the book, "Confession," emphasizes the fact that if we repent from our sins and we come to God and acknowledge our guilt, also showing reformation; we will be forgiven for our sins. White shows us that God will never make us believe in anything; He will always give us the options to believe it or not. In other words, if we repent and turn away from our sins and assume our faults, not by using self-justification or excuses, but by feeling it with a true heart, we can be forgiven. "God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten son"" Jesus, the one and only Son of God, that was once "one" with God, was brought to earth to feel the burden of our own sins. " This bridge is established by the coming of the Christ, who is "the way, the truth, and the life;" who is the "only way" or link to come back to the likeness of God and to enjoy his harmony and communion. " (White 40)The eighth chapter of the book, "Growing Up Into Christ," states that without God there is no life, and nothing has life.
