If you look at christian booksellers such as eden and then on amazon to see what christian books are selling at the moment it is scary. http://www.eden.co.uk/https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=lp_277266_nr_n_22?fst=as%3Aoff&rh=n%3A266239%2Cn%3A%211025612%2Cn%3A58%2Cn%3A277266%2Cn%3A277365&bbn=277266&ie=UTF8&qid=1520497715&rnid=277266It is scary to see what christian books are bestsellers are at the moment and then if you checkout what people are listening to on podcast via Itunes, and then on Youtube. If we look at what is selling in the christian world, how far away it has strayed from the bible https://itunes.apple.com/gb/genre/podcasts-religion-spirituality-christianity/id1439?mt=2There are people like Mark Driscoll, Bethel and others.Judges 21 25In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyesWhy do people put mens word above gods word, why do people cherry pick the scriptures on love but do not like the scriptures on judgement. Where are the Jeremiahs of today! It so saddens me to see a more and more apostate church!
The ECPA has put together this list which shows sales in the Christian publishing world by volume, (link below)I frequent it from time-to-time to get an idea of were the culture is going.This list is always populated with Quasi-Christian celebrity authors and popculture psychology with a Christian spin and other self help books that are only fit for the fire. Scary thing... i think back in 2014-OR 2015 it had 4 or 5 in top 50 that were Christian coloring books (aka the Hindu meditation Mandala) & A Christian joke book....RESULTS FOR 2017http://christianbookexpo.com/bestseller/nonfiction.php?id=BO17CURRENT MOVERS CURRENTLY IN 2018http://christianbookexpo.com/bestseller/all.php?id=0318& CHECKOUT THE 10mill Sales Awards;http://christianbookexpo.com/salesawards/2 Peter 2:1-3But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
I totally get what you're saying, but be careful of broad brushing all those authors under the 2nd peter text. If we condemn for lack of discernment, let us not commit the same error and speak without knowledge.
I have read them ! I used to read and review books for the Christian bookshop.
