A Book Review

Dr. John Adams, Moral Action Executive Director

While visiting with one of my doctors, he asked me to peruse this book. As Moral Action Director of the BMA, I counted it an honor to do this for him and his study group. Below is the contents of the letter to my doctor:

Greetings! I count it an honor to analyze and research the book by Dr. Muraresku — The Immortality Key. It is very interesting but has an overriding theme of denying the faith in Jesus Christ. That faith is the foundational stone of Christians from Genesis days.

The psychedelics theory of eternal life is truly confusing. Huston Smith called them visionary plants, herbs and fungi that make people seek a false life quest. He is mistaken that the original Lord’s Supper (the Holy Grail) was to make us like gods. This is no more than mind-altering drugs.

I do agree with Muraresku of the great influence of the Greek and its educated influence on Paul and the early disciples.

The book talks of mind-bending drugs, note the word mind, while Christianity (followers of Jesus God’s only Son) is a message of the heart and soul. It’s about the heart.

I do not believe that MIT and the University of Pennsylvania will ever find enough data to deny faith of Jesus as was in antiquity and in our modern-day.

It is an interesting read, but too varied, skipping from place to place. No substance of reality is given. I do not recommend this book.

“Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto the Lord God of Israel” (Joshua 24:23). Joshua urged mankind to put away false gods and banned the offering of babies as sacrifices for sins. Paul, the apostle of Jesus, told us to “be rooted and grounded in the Word of God” (Eph. 3:17). These writings of Muraresku are not rooted in God’s Bible.

I’ve enjoyed trying to be fair in my assessment, but there are few true facts from our God in this writing. “Seek ye the Lord while He may be found…” (Isa. 55:6).
